“The Sisters of Zion”


The Sisters of Zion New Lyrics

The sisters of Zion are called to God’s labor,

We willingly serve Him with spirit and might.

We go to the nations with truth everlasting,

We teach of the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ.

We thank Thee, O God, for a prophet to guide us,

We trust in his words and our purpose is clear.

The angels of heaven are walking beside us,

We’ll share our glad message with all who will hear.

We go forth enlisted with Helaman’s army

In numbers much greater than ever before.

With power and spirit we’ll faithfully witness

The heavens have spoken and truth is restored!
