  1. 1. The glorious gospel light has shone
    In this the latter day
    With such intelligence that none
    From truth need turn away.
    The precious things which had been sealed
    And from the world kept hid,
    The Lord has to his Saints revealed
    As anciently he did.
  2. 2. And thru the priesthood now restored
    Again prepared the way
    Thru which the dead may hear his word
    And all his laws obey.
    As Christ to spirits went to preach
    Who were to prison led,
    So many Saints have gone to teach
    The gospel to the dead.
  3. 3. And we for them can be baptized,
    Yes, for our friends most dear,
    That they can with the just be raised
    When Gabriel’s trump they hear;
    That they may come with Christ again
    When he to earth descends,
    A thousand years with him to reign,
    And with their earthly friends.
  4. 4. Now, O ye Saints, rejoice today
    That you can saviors be
    Of all your dead who will obey
    The gospel and be free.
    Then let us rise without restraint
    And act for those we love,
    For they are giving their consent
    And wait for us to move.
  5. Text: Joel H. Johnson, 1802–1882
    Music: Gottfried W. Fink, 1783–1846
