    The Scriptures Say

    1. When the Savior lived in heaven

    Before the world began,

    He promised He would die for us

    As part of Father’s plan.

    The scriptures say He would save us

    As part of Father’s plan.

    2. When the Savior lived on earth,

    He taught us we must give.

    By serving us and loving us

    He showed us how to live.

    The scriptures say He loved us

    And showed us how to live.

    3. When the Savior came to earth

    To visit Lehi’s lands,

    He spoke, He taught, He healed the sick

    With gentle, wounded hands.

    The scriptures say He blessed them

    With gentle wounded hands.

    4. When the Savior comes to earth

    In majesty and might,

    He’ll gather us at His right hand

    To live in joy and light.

    The scriptures say He will save us

    To live in joy and light.
