8 Hymns of the Restoration

Come, Come Ye Saints

Scripture: Doctrine and Covenants 61:36-39 And now, verily I say unto you, and what I say unto one I say unto all, be of good cheer, little children; for I am in your midst, and I have not forsaken you; And inasmuch as you have humbled yourselves before me, the blessings of the kingdom are yours. Gird up your loins and be watchful and be sober, looking forth for the coming of the Son of Man, for he cometh in an hour you think not. Pray always that you enter not into temptation, that you may abide the day of his coming, whether in life or in death. Even so. Amen.

Lyrics:

Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear;

But with joy wend your way. Though hard to you this journey may appear,

Grace shall be as your day. 'Tis better far for us to strive

Our useless cares from us to drive;

Do this, and joy your hearts will swell--All is well! All is well!
