A Message of Gladness:
A Millennial Anthem.
Message of Gladness (MP3, 7MB)
Righteousness will I send down from heaven;
Truth will I send forth out of the earth;
To bear testimony of mine only begotten;
To gather mine elect unto the Holy City;
Looking forth for the time of my coming. (Moses 6:72)
Endowed from on high; Truth from the earth
Hope in our hearts; Faith in the Father;
Redeemed by His Son.
Endowed from on high; Truth from the earth;
Hope in our hearts; Light of our lives;
Perfected in Him; Perfected in Jesus Christ.
In my name shall they do many wonderful works;
In my name shall they cast out devils;
In my name shall they heal the sick;
Open the eyes of the blind; Unstop the ears of the deaf;
And the tongue of the dumb shall speak, and sing Haleluyah!
My law I will write in their hearts;
Ill be their God, and they my people.
They shall all know me
From the least of them, unto the greatest of them.
I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.
Praise the Lord, All-mighty! Declare His doings among the people.
Call upon His name; make mention his name is exalted.
Sing unto the Lord; for He has done excellent things.
Cry and shout thou inhabitants of Zion;
For great is the Holy One of Israel, in the midst of thee, Alelujah!
The Lord hath brought Zion down from above;
The Lord hath brought Zion up from beneath;
A message of gladness; rejoice all ye earth!
I will trust and not be afraid;
I will trust in the Lord!
(D&C 84:99-100; 128:19; Ps. 85:11)

file - accompaniment
sheet music is available, but revisions are in order to make the accompaniment more
readable, and to simplify the choral part. Originally it was written for two choirs of 8
parts each -- total of 16 parts, a tad busy.
