Adam-ondi-Ahman

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 49

1. This earth was once a garden place, With all her glories common, And men did live a holy race, And worship Jesus face to face, In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

2. We read that Enoch walked with God, Above the pow’r of mammon, While Zion spread herself abroad, And Saints and angels sang aloud, In Adam-ondi-Ahman.

3. Her land was good and greatly blest, Beyond all Israel’s Canaan; Her fame was known from east to west, Her peace was great, and pure the rest Of Adam-ondi-Ahman.

4. Hosanna to such days to come, The Savior’s second coming, When all the earth in glorious bloom Affords the Saints a holy home, Like Adam-ondi-Ahman.
