  1. 1. ’Twas witnessed in the morning sky:
    An angel earthward bound.
    This messenger proclaimed anew
    The gospel’s joyful sound.
    In pow’r it would be preached on earth
    By men of God ordained;
    All men, all tongues, all nations would
    Accept and praise his name.
  2. 2. In ancient days the gospel plan
    Was giv’n of God to men;
    In latter days the gospel is
    Restored to earth again.
    By holy prophets long proclaimed,
    By Saints and seers adored,
    It speaks the everlasting truths
    Of Jesus Christ, the Lord.
  3. 3. Apostles of a former day
    To modern prophets came;
    They brought the priesthood of our Lord
    To bless the earth again.
    The pow’rs of heav’n are opened wide
    To men of God below;
    The knowledge, gifts, and keys are ours,
    All blessings to bestow.
