Lyrics by Eliza R Roxcy Snow, Music by Joan Lisonbee Sowards
Great is the Lord; 'tis (it is) good to praise His high and holy name. Well may the Saints in latter days his wondrous love proclaim. The Comforter is sent again; His pow'r (power) the Church attends, And with the faithful will remain Till Jesus Christ descends.
O praise Him! The time, the chosen time to favor Zion's come, And all the Saints from every clime will soon be gathered home. The opening seals announce the day of light and truth restored, When all in one triumphant lay will join to praise our Lord.
We'll praise him for a prophet's voice, His people's steps toguide; In this we do and will rejoice, Tho all the world deride. To praise him let us all engage, For unto us is giv'n To live in this momentous age And share the light of heav'n (heaven).
