Latter-day Saint hymn text inspired by "The Family: A Proclamation to the World"
|We were a family with our God,
as one before this earth began.
Exalted parents nurtured us,
prepared us for our Father’s plan.
When Adam and our Mother Eve
replenished earth with many heirs,
they showed us how to live in joy,
to keep the law and kneel in prayer.
Today we follow patterns set
by faithful families long ago.
We’ll keep progressing to the end,
for God sustains us as we grow.
Now, through the sacred priesthood power,
we’ll keep our covenants faithfully
to seal our families in these ties
and have them for eternity.
