A Key Was Turned in Latter Days



  1. 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. 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.
