I will not doubt, I will not fear (LDS Hymn #128)

I will not doubt, I will not fear; God’s love and strength are always near. His promised gift helps me to find An inner strength and peace of mind. I give the Father willingly My trust, my prayers, humility. His Spirit guides; his love assures That fear departs when faith endures. 2 Timothy 1:7 D&C 6:36

Know This, That Every Soul Is Free

Know this, that every soul is free To choose his life and what he’ll be; For this eternal truth is given: That God will force no man to heaven. He’ll call, persuade, direct aright, And bless with wisdom, love, and light, In nameless ways be good and kind, But never force the human mind. Freedom and reason make us men; Take these away, what are we then? Mere animals, and just as well The beasts may think of heaven or hell. May we no more our powers abuse, But ways of truth and goodness choose; Our God is pleased when we improve His grace and seek his perfect love. LDS Hymn #240 Text:  Anon., ca. 1805, Boston. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835. Music:  Roger L. Miller, b. 1937. © 1985 IRI Helaman 14:30–31 2 Nephi 10:23–24

How great the wisdom and the love

How great the wisdom and the love That filled the courts on high And sent the Savior from above To suffer, bleed, and die! His precious blood he freely spilt; His life he freely gave, A sinless sacrifice for guilt, A dying world to save. By strict obedience Jesus won The prize with glory rife: “Thy will, O God, not mine be done,” Adorned his mortal life. He marked the path and led the way, And every point defines To light and life and endless day Where God’s full presence shines. In memory of the broken flesh We eat the broken bread And witness with the cup, afresh, Our faith in Christ, our Head. How great, how glorious, how complete Redemption’s grand design, Where justice, love, and mercy meet In harmony divine! Eliza R. Snow, 1804–1887 (Hymn #195) Moses 4:1–2 Alma 42:14–15
