Come, Come, Ye Saints | 23 July 2021

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! The pioneer hymn “Come, Come Ye Saints” is still a reminder today about perseverance, zeal, and finding joy in the journey. Today, we take a look at what this hymn teaches us and how we can press forward.

Scripture

And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.1 Nephi 13:37

Quote

Perhaps this means, come, ye Saints, all ye that are heavy laden, come to the Savior of Mankind; keep your covenants with him, and he will carry not only the burden of your sins—he will also ease the burdens of your hardest toil and labor. Then you will wend your way with the joy that Adam and Eve discovered when they embraced the covenants of the Atonement amid the burdens of the lone and dreary world.Bruce C. Hafen
