“Glad Tidings from Cumorah,” New Era, Aug. 1994, 35Glad Tidings from CumorahWords and music by Douglas L. IpsonFirst-Place Hymn1. Glad tidings from Cumorah!An angel has returned to earthTo yield a book of priceless worthInto a prophet’s hands.The fulness of the gospelThe Savior gave his “other sheep”Breaks forth, as with a flood, to sweepAll nations, tribes, and lands.2. Oh, hear the voice of gladness!An ancient record is restored;Another witness of the LordHas spoken from the dust.Its message must be soundedAs with a trump in ev’ry tongue,For truth out of the earth has sprungTo gather out the just.Copyright © 1994 by Douglas L.
