Hymn 26 • Now we’ll sing with one accord
HYMN 26. P. M.
 
1 Now we’ll sing with one accord,
For a prophet of the Lord,
Bringing forth his precious word,
Cheers the saints as anciently.
 
2 When the world in darkness lay,
Lo, he sought the better way,
And he heard the Savior say,
“Go and prune my vineyard, son!”
 
3 And an angel surely, then,
For a blessing unto men,
Brought the priesthood back again,
In its ancient purity.
 
4 Even Joseph he inspires:
Yea, his heart he truly fires,
With the light that he desires
For the work of righteousness.
 
5 And the book of Mormon, true,
With its cov’nant ever new,
For the Gentile and the Jew,
He translated sacredly.
 
6 The commandments to the church,
Which the saints will always search, [p. 33]
