Come, Listen to a Prophet's Voice


As we listen to general conference and internalize the messages given while we study them through the coming months, let us remember the hymn, "Come, Listen to a Prophet's Voice":

Come, listen to a prophet's voice, And hear the word of God,
And in the way of truth rejoice, And sing for joy aloud.
We've found the way the prophets went Who lived in days of yore.
Another prophet now is sent This knowledge to restore.

The gloom of sullen darkness spread Thru earth's extended space
Is banished by our living Head, And God has shown His face.
Thru erring schemes in days now past The world has gone astray;
Yet Saints of God have found at last The straight and narrow way.

'Tis not in man they put their trust Nor on his arm rely.
Full well assured, all are accursed Who Jesus Christ deny.
The Savior to his people saith, "Let all my words obey,
And signs shall follow living faith, Down to the latest day."

Then heed the words of truth and light That flow from fountains pure.
Yea, keep His law with all thy might Till thine election's sure,
Till though shalt hear the holy voice Assure eternal reign.
While joy and cheer attend they choice, As one who shall obtain.


We are truly blessed to receive latter-day revelation and instruction from men and women inspired of God through His holy Spirit. We have comfort and guidance in a world that, as President Monson said, "is increasingly less spiritual." May we fully receive this blessing and allow it to guide us and strengthen us as we strive to keep His commandments and live His word.
