    An Angel from on High

    Men’s Choir

    Thoughtfully / Boldly

    1. An angel from on high

    The long, long silence broke;

    Descending from the sky,

    These gracious words he spoke:

    Lo! in Cumorah’s lonely hill

    A sacred record lies concealed.

    Lo! in Cumorah’s lonely hill

    A sacred record lies concealed.

    2. Sealed by Moroni’s hand,

    It has for ages lain

    To wait the Lord’s command,

    From dust to speak again.

    It shall again to light come forth

    To usher in Christ’s reign on earth.

    It shall again to light come forth

    To usher in Christ’s reign on earth.

    3. It speaks of Joseph’s seed

    And makes the remnant known

    Of nations long since dead,

    Who once had dwelt alone.

    The fulness of the gospel, too,

    Its pages will reveal to view.

    The fulness of the gospel, too,

    Its pages will reveal to view.

    4. The time is now fulfilled,

    The long-expected day;

    Let earth obedience yield

    And darkness flee away.

    Remove the seals; be wide unfurled

    Its light and glory to the world.

    Remove the seals; be wide unfurled

    Its light and glory to the world.

    5. Lo! Israel filled with joy

    Shall now be gathered home,

    Their wealth and means employ

    To build Jerusalem,

    While Zion shall arise and shine

    And fill the earth with truth divine.

    While Zion shall arise and shine

    And fill the earth with truth divine.
