The Sacred Grove

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Reverently

1. The Sacred Grove was green and fresh,

The morning sun shone bright around,

As Joseph knelt in fervent prayer,

As Joseph knelt in fervent prayer

Upon that sacred ground.

2. The Father and the Son appeared.

They spoke to him as with one voice.

Their message answered all his fears,

Their message answered all his fears

And made his heart rejoice.
