A Key Was Turned in Latter Days

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


With dignity

1. A key was turned in latter days,

A blessing to restore—

A gift of charity and peace—

To earth forevermore.

Our Father, we would turn our hearts

To those who seek thy face,

Give hope and comfort to the poor

In mem’ry of thy grace.

2. A hand of mercy we’ll extend;

Thy Son has shown the way.

And light and knowledge will attend

Our service in his name.

O sisters, let us join our hands;

We’ll humbly seek his face,

Assure our hearts before our Lord

By deeds of love and praise.
