And saints and angels sung aloud
In Adam-ondi-Ahman.
 
3 Her land was good and greatly blest,
Beyond old Israel’s Canaan:
Her fame was known from east to west;
Her peace was great, and pure the rest
Of Adam-ondi-Ahman.
 
4 Hosanna to such days to come—
The Savior’s second comin’—
When all the earth in glorious bloom,
Affords the saints a holy home
Like Adam-ondi-Ahman.
 
Hymn 24 • Gently raise the sacred strain
HYMN 24. P. M.
 
1 Gently raise the sacred strain,
For the Sabbath ’s come again,
That man may rest,
And return his thanks to God,
For his blessings to the blest.
 
2 Holy day, devoid of strife,
For to seek eternal life,
That great reward,
And partake the sacrament,
In remembrance of the Lord.
