In Our Lovely Deseret



I thought that since it is Sunday i should post a song. Maybe do this every week? hmmmm

First I must share some personals with you all. I am LDS which mean Mormon, which really means I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Boy that is a long one!! I've always been one and plan on stick'n with it for the remainder of my days.


Our church is fairly new compared to a lot of others out there. We do have some oldie, but goodie music/hymns out there though. We sing quite a bit in our meetings which is fun, but we sometimes get in a little rut and sing the same songs (ones we are comfortable with)....it is fun and surprising to sing a new one (meaning old one, we never sing!--oh, you get it.)
Music is Music----no matter where we come from or what we believe in....so no preach'n here... just spread'n the joy of music and thier words.


Today this one got sung and boy did the words suprise me!! take a look:




IN OUR LOVELY DESERET




In our lovely Deseret,Where the Saints of God have met,
There’s a multitude of children all around.
They are generous and brave;
They have precious souls to save;
They must listen and obey the gospel’s sound.

[Chorus]Hark! Hark! Hark! ’tis children’s music—Children’s voices, oh, how sweet,When in innocence and love,Like the angels up above,They with happy hearts and cheerful faces meet.
2. That the children may live longAnd be beautiful and strong,
Tea and coffee and tobacco they despise,
Drink no liquor, and they eat But a very little meat;


They are seeking to be great and good and wise.
3. They should be instructed young
How to watch and guard the tongue,
And their tempers train and evil passions bind;
They should always be polite,
And treat ev’rybody right,
And in ev’ry place be affable and kind.

4. They must not forget to pray,
Night and morning ev’ry day,
For the Lord to keep them safe from ev’ry ill,
And assist them to do right,
That with all their mind and might
They may love him and may learn to do his will.

Text: Eliza R. Snow, 1804–1887
