Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1985): "Redeemer of Israel"
1. Redeemer of Israel,
Our only delight,
On whom for a blessing we call,
Our shadow by day,
And our pillar by night,
Our king, our companion, our all.
2. We know he is coming,
To gather his sheep,
And plant them in Zion, in love;
For why in the valley
Of death should they weep,
Or alone in the wilderness rove?
3. How long we have wandered
As strangers in sin,
And cried in the desert for thee!
Our foes have rejoiced
When our sorrows they've seen,
But Israel will shortly be free.
4. As children of Zion
Good tidings for us;
The tokens already appear;
Fear not, and be just,
For the kingdom is ours,
And the hour of redemption is near.
