31243, Hymns, A Key Was Turned in Latter Days, no. 310
1. A key was turned in latter days,
A blessing to restore-
A gift of charity and peace-
To earth forevermore.
Our Father, we would turn our hearts
To those who seek thy face,
Give hope and comfort to the poor
In mem'ry of thy grace.
2. A hand of mercy we'll extend;
Thy Son has shown the way.
And light and knowledge will attend
Our service in his name.
O sisters, let us join our hands;
We'll humbly seek his face,
Assure our hearts before our Lord
By deeds of love and praise.
