High on the Mountain Top

 


Lyrics

  1. 1. High on the mountain top

    A banner is unfurled.

    Ye nations, now look up;

    It waves to all the world.

    In Deseret’s sweet, peaceful land,

    On Zion’s mount behold it stand!

  2. 2. For God remembers still

    His promise made of old

    That he on Zion’s hill

    Truth’s standard would unfold!

    Her light should there attract the gaze

    Of all the world in latter days.

  3. 3. His house shall there be reared,

    His glory to display,

    And people shall be heard

    In distant lands to say:

    We’ll now go up and serve the Lord,

    Obey his truth and learn his word.

  4. 4. For there we shall be taught

    The law that will go forth,

    With truth and wisdom fraught,

    To govern all the earth.

    Forever there his ways we’ll tread,

    And save ourselves with all our dead.
