Let Zion in Her Beauty Rise

Let Zion in Her Beauty Rise, violin and piano PDF, audio

This is one of my all-time favorite hymns! I found out the other day that my family history lines go back to the Schwartz and Kirschenman families, who lived in W├╝rttemburg, Germany in the 1700's, exactly when and where this music was written! So this is also my pioneer tribute, to them.

This song always reminds me of a rising sun, growing brighter and brighter, eliminating all the shadow which the light touches, filling the whole land. So it is with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Lord has put forth his hand again to restore His true and living Church and Gospel to the earth, exactly as He has done before, and promised to do again in our day. All this is in preparation for His majestic return. His truth will go forth to every Nation, Kindred, Tongue, and People, for so He said. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15; Doctrine and Covenants 1:5; Mosiah 3:20)

  1. 1. Let Zion in her beauty rise;
    Her light begins to shine.
    Ere long her King will rend the skies,
    Majestic and divine,
    The gospel spreading thru the land,
    A people to prepare
    To meet the Lord and Enoch's band
    Triumphant in the air.
  2. 2. Ye heralds, sound the golden trump
    To earth's remotest bound.
    Go spread the news from pole to pole
    In all the nations round:
    That Jesus in the clouds above,
    With hosts of angels too,
    Will soon appear, his Saints to save,
    His enemies subdue.
  3. 3. That glorious rest will then commence
    Which prophets did foretell,
    When Saints will reign with Christ on earth,
    And in his presence dwell
    A thousand years, oh, glorious day!
    Dear Lord, prepare my heart
    To stand with thee on Zion's mount
    And nevermore to part.
