thus zion's light is bursting forth


The morning breaks; the shadows flee; 
Lo, Zion's standard is unfurled! 
The dawning of a brighter day, 
The dawning of a brighter day 
Majestic rises on the world.

The clouds of error disappear 
Before the rays of truth divine; 
The glory bursting from afar, 
The glory bursting from afar 
Wide o'er the nations soon will shine.

The Gentile fullness now comes in, 
And Israel's blessings are at hand. 
Lo, Judah's remnant, cleansed from sin, 
Lo, Judah's remnant, cleansed from sin 
Shall in their promised Canaan stand.

Jehovah speaks! let earth give ear, 
And Gentile nations turn and live. 
His mighty arm is making bare, 
His mighty arm is making bare 
His covenant people to receive.

Angels from heaven and truth from earth 
Have met, and both have record borne; 
Thus Zion's light is bursting forth, 
Thus Zion's light is bursting forth 
To bring her ransomed children home.


As you may have gathered, I spent this weekend watching the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (Available here: gc.lds.org) It was amazing, awe-inspiring, uplifting, motivating, and the list could go on and on. General Conference is held every 6 months, in October and April. We learn from our leaders who receive modern day revelation from God.

My heart is so full, I am so ready to serve. I want to be more like my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives. I know He loves me.

Did you watch conference? What faith-building experiences did you have this weekend?
