Hymn for the Week


The day dawn is breaking, the world is awaking, The clouds of night's darkness are fleeing away.
The worldwide commotion, from ocean to ocean, Now heralds the time of the beautiful day.

Beautiful day of peace and rest,
Bright be thy dawn from east to west.
Hail to thine earliest welcome ray,
Beautiful bright, millennial day.

In many a temple the Saints will assemble And labor as saviors of dear ones away.
Then happy reunion and sweetest communion We'll have with our friends in the beautiful day.


Still let us be doing, our lessons reviewing, Which God has revealed for our walk in his way; And then, wondrous story, the Lord in his glory Will come in his pow'r in the beautiful day.


Then pure and supernal, our friendship eternal, With Jesus we'll live, and his counsels obey
Until every nation will join in salvation And worship the Lord of the beautiful day.


Scripture for the Week

D&C 54:10.

Quote for the Week

"The gospel of Jesus Christ has the divine power to lift you to great heights from what appears at times to be an unbearable burden or weakness. The Lord knows your circumstances and your challenges. He said to Paul and to all of us, 'My grace is sufficient for thee.' And like Paul we can answer: 'My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.' ---President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Lead me into life eternal By the gospel's holy call.
Let thy promise rest upon me; Grant me ready strength for all.

Father, all my heart I give thee; All my service shall be thine.
Guide me as I search in weakness; Let thy loving light be mine.

Hear me as I pray in meekness; Let my strength be as thy day.
Give me faith, the greater knowledge; Father, bless me as I pray.

Hymn for the Week


Praise to the man who communed with Jehovah! Jesus anointed that Prophet and Seer.
Blessed to open the last dispensation, Kings shall extol him, and nations revere.

Hail to the Prophet, ascended to heaven!
Traitors and tyrants now fight him in vain.
Mingling with Gods, he can plan for his brethren;
Death cannot conquer the hero again.

Praise to his mem'ry, he died as a martyr. Honored and blest be his ever great name!
Long shall his blood which was shed by assassins, Plead unto heav'n while the earth lauds his fame.


Great is his glory and endless his priesthood. Ever and ever the keys he will hold.
Faithful and true, he will enter his kingdom, Crowned in the midst of the prophets of old.


Sacrifice brings forth the blessings of heaven; Earth must atone for the blood of that man.
Wake up the world for the conflict of justice. Millions shall know "Brother Joseph" again.

Hymn for the Week


Oh, how lovely was the morning! Radiant beemed the sun above.
Bees were humming, sweet birds singing, Music ringing thru the grove.
When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love,
When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love.

Humbly kneeling, sweet appealing - Twas the boy's first uttered prayer --
When the pow'rs of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair;
But undaunted, still he trusted In his Heavenly Father's care,
But undaunted, still he trusted In his Heavenly Father's care.

Suddenly a light descended, Brighter far than noonday sun,
And a shining glorious pillar O'er him fell, around him shone,
While appeared two heav'nly beings, God the Father and the Son,
While appeared two heav'nly beings, God the Father and the Son.

"Joseph, this is my Beloved; Hear him!" Oh how sweet the word!
Joseph's humble prayer was answered, And he listened to the Lord.
Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God,
Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God.
