    “The Sisters of Zion”—New Lyrics to a Beloved Hymn!

    Check out Janice Kapp Perry’s new lyrics to the hymn “As Sisters in Zion” (Hymns, no. 309). The new version is sung every week in the MTC. 

    Janic Kapp Perry wrote new lyrics to the well-known hymn “As Sisters in Zion” (Hymns, no. 309). Her new lyrics celebrate women’s role in bringing the gospel to all the world. They were sung for the first time by sister missionaries in the Provo Missionary Training Center on May 12, 2014. Now sister missionaries there sing these lyrics every Sunday! It’s a rousing missionary number!

    Here are the new lyrics for you to enjoy!

    “The Sisters of Zion”

    The sisters of Zion are called to God’s labor,

    We willingly serve Him with spirit and might.

    We go to the nations with truth everlasting,

    We teach of the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ.


    We thank Thee, O God, for a prophet to guide us,

    We trust in his words and our purpose is clear.

    The angels of heaven are walking beside us,

    We’ll share our glad message with all who will hear.


    We go forth enlisted with Helaman’s army

    In numbers much greater than ever before.

    With power and spirit we’ll faithfully witness

    The heavens have spoken and truth is restored!
