We Thank Thee, O God, For a Prophet
This has been a beloved favorite of LDS congregations for well over a century. This setting for unison choir begins thoughtfully and gradually crescendos to the line “We will sing of his goodness and mercy” - joyfully thanking God for His divine guidance and love.
We thank thee, O God, for a prophet
to guide us in these latter days.
We thank thee for sending the gospel
to lighten our minds with its rays.
We thank thee for every blessing
bestowed by thy bountious hand.
We feel it a pleasure to serve thee,
and love to obey thy command.
When dark clouds of trouble hang o’er us
and threaten our peace to destroy,
there is hope smiling brightly before us
and we know that deliverance is nigh.
We doubt not the Lord nor his goodness.
We have proved him in days that are past,
and those who will hark to his counsel
will be guided to Zion at last.
We will sing of his goodness and mercy.
We will praise him by day and by night,
Rejoice in his glorious gospel
and bask in its lifegiving light.
Thus on to eternal perfection
the honest and faithful will go,
and all who’ll accept this glad message
will ever this happiness know.
