An Angel Came to Joseph Smith
, no. 86a


1. An angel came to Joseph Smith,And from the ground he tookA sacred record hidden there,A precious, holy book.
2. It tells of people long ago,Led by the Lord’s own hand,Who left their homes and crossed the seaTo reach a favored land.
3. The Nephites and the Lamanites,And all who came to dwell,Had peace when they obeyed the Lord,The sacred records tell.
4. And now I’ll read the sacred book,And then I’ll understandThat Heav’nly Father loves us allIn each and ev’ry land.
