We Believe In Our God
We believe in our God, the great Prince of his race,
The Archangel, Michael, the Ancient of Days,
Our own Father Adam, earth's Lord is his plane,
Who'll counsel and fight for his children again.
We believe in his Son Jesus Christ, who in love
For his brothers and sisters, came down from above;
To die to redeem them from death, and to teach
To mortals and spirits the Gospel we preach.
We believe in the Bible, that came by the Jew;
We believe in the Book that is called Mormon, too
The Doctrine and Covenants, also every word
That proceedeth forth from the mouth of the Lord.
We believe in the Gospel, the old-fashioned plan
Unaltered one whit by the wisdom of man.
Have faith and repent of the sins you commit,
Be baptized in water, then God will remit.
The Elders will then lay their hands upon you;
The Holy Ghost giving - all things become new,
Your peace will be pure and be free from alloy,
Your soul will be filled with unspeakable joy.
