From Homes of Saints Glad Songs Arise

This hymn has long been a favorite of mine with its beautiful music and great message. Arranging this hymn was a wonderful and humbling experience for me in feeling the ability to use my talents to do the Lord's work and be inspired by Him as I create. I am so grateful for this opportunity!
The hymn needed a third verse for the arrangement. After looking through the LDS Hymnbook to see if another appropriate text was already written, I felt I should include some text from the second verse of hymn #263, Go Forth with Faith. Enjoy the spirit of this wonderful hymn about families living the gospel.

LYRICS


From homes of Saints glad songs arise,
For there the Lord is King.
There faith is learned and prayers ascend,
The Spirit's peace to bring.
For homes where scriptures old are loved,
And living prophets, too,
All thanks we give; the Father praise
For guidance sure and true.

God's truths protect the hearth from wrong
When error's ways allure,
Lift minds from self to nobleness,
Keep thought and action pure.
Then sing, O Saints, in hymns of praise;
Sing thanks to God on high,
Whose counsels kept in homes on earth
Bring heaven's glory nigh.

Go forth with love to tell the world
The joy of families
That we may be with those we love
Thru all eternity.
Then sing, O Saints, in hymns of praise;
Sing thanks to God on high,
Whose counsels kept in homes on earth
Bring heaven's glory nigh.
Whose counsels kept in homes on earth
Bring heaven's glory nigh.
