Come, All Whose Souls Are Lighted

With motion

1. Come, all whose souls are lighted

With wisdom from on high.

Shall we, to men benighted,

The lamp of life deny?

Salvation! Oh, salvation!

The joyful sound proclaim,

Till earth’s remotest nation

Has learned Messiah’s name.

2. From Greenland’s icy mountains,

From India’s coral strand,

Where Afric’s sunny fountains

Roll down their golden sand,

From many an ancient river,

From many a palmy plain,

They call us to deliver

Their land from error’s chain.

3. Go tell, ye winds, his story,

And mighty waters, roll,

Till, like a sea of glory,

It spreads from pole to pole;

Till o’er our ransomed nature

The Lamb, for sinners slain,

Redeemer, King, Creator

In bliss returns to reign.

Text: Reginald Heber, 1783–1826. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.
