An Angel from on High
, 13


1. An angel from on highThe long, long silence broke;Descending from the sky,These gracious words he spoke:Lo! in Cumorah’s lonely hillA sacred record lies concealed.Lo! in Cumorah’s lonely hillA sacred record lies concealed.
2. Sealed by Moroni’s hand,It has for ages lainTo wait the Lord’s command,From dust to speak again.It shall again to light come forthTo usher in Christ’s reign on earth.It shall again to light come forthTo usher in Christ’s reign on earth.
3. It speaks of Joseph’s seedAnd makes the remnant knownOf nations long since dead,Who once had dwelt alone.The fulness of the gospel, too,Its pages will reveal to view.The fulness of the gospel, too,Its pages will reveal to view.
4. The time is now fulfilled,The long-expected day;Let earth obedience yieldAnd darkness flee away.Remove the seals; be wide unfurledIts light and glory to the world.Remove the seals; be wide unfurledIts light and glory to the world.
5. Lo! Israel filled with joyShall now be gathered home,Their wealth and means employTo build Jerusalem,While Zion shall arise and shineAnd fill the earth with truth divine.While Zion shall arise and shineAnd fill the earth with truth divine.
