Our Glorious Parents

Our glorious Parents once sat in their councils
And taught us and loved us as all parents should
The plan They presented, our Brother endorsed, which
Made Him our Savior and exemplar for good.

Our glorious Parents, both Mother and Father,
Reach out from Their heavens and we should reach back.
As we live our lives we should think of Them always
And pray that we will keep our closeness intact.

Our glorious Parents, You know that we love You.
We love the green Earth and our families and friends.
We thank You for prophets, for hope, and salvation;
Take us to Your bosoms when our time here ends.

This hymn is written to a traditional form and many traditional and modern melodies could be appropriated for use.
