Where to find Mormon Music? And do Mormons listen to Evangelical Christian music?

This afternoon my wife found a website called Pandora.com. It is a free music website that plays songs based on your favorites. For instance, if you wanted to listen to Country music, you can type in the name of a song and a playlist will be created for you. The website will play tons of songs based on your preference for music. It creates a great mix of spiritual music for Sundays.

This brings me to the title of this post, "Where to find Mormon Music? Do Mormons listen to Evangelical Christian music?". At Pandora.com we entered "Mormon Tabernacle Choir". Turns out Pandora play lots of LDS music and it mixes in the likes of Charolette Church, Greg Buchanan, David Phelps, Jeff Majors, and the London Philharmonic Choir. It's been a joy to listen to.

Mormons believe good music can help you feel more spiritual. In fact, one of the articles of faith states, "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." Music has been a part of Mormon worship services since the early days of Mormonism. The following quote is from LDS.org:
Three months after the Church was organized [in April of 1830], the Lord,
through the Prophet Joseph Smith, instructed Joseph's wife, Emma, to make a
selection of sacred hymns for the Church: "For my soul delighteth in the song of
the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be
answered with a blessing upon their heads" (D&C 25:12).

Additionally, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints created a website that holds all of their hymns. Now you can listen or download the hymns before you go to a meeting. Pandora.com has made a difference in our Sundays, I recommend setting up a Mormon Tabernacle Choir station to all my friends: both Evangelical and not.

Here is a song by David Phelps, I might not agree with his doctrine and the Chrisitan stores selling his CDs may diss my religion by selling anti-Mormon books, but wow, he does a pretty good job and I celebrate his passion:

I LOVE PANDORA! You can create your own playlists, or try out the automated playlists, or mix things up.

Music is our direct channel to heaven. Thus, anything "lovely or of good report or praiseworthy" in music we should diligently seek out. The Christian / Evangelical/ Gospel genre, (with subsequent talent pool) is absolutely phenomonal and shouldn't be missed by the LDS community.

Here are a handful that I highly recommend adding to your playlists immediately: Chris Rice, Steven Curtis Chapman, Nicole C. Mullen, Allan Hall, and MercyMe.

Also check out newcomer Paul Baloche.

For those who love that great rock-n-roll sound but appreciate lyrics that don't make you blush, try contemporary Christian Rock artists: Jeremy Camp, Newsboys, Matthew West, & Tim Hughes...etc

There's a wonderful world of music out there just waiting for all of us, beyond the traditional Utah "Sounds of Sunday". Whether it is Classical, Christian, Gospel, Rock, New Age, Country, etc. that you love, you can find exceptional artists who live high standards and make beautiful songs of the heart. Dive in, and enjoy! :)

I am so happy to hear about the great love that you have for the Lord Fleetingthoughts. I consider myself a "Born-Again Christian (a religious person who believes Jesus is the Christ and who is a member of a Christian denomination following the teachings or manifesting the qualities or spirit of Jesus Christ) Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." I also listen to Christian music on the radio and I love the music of Phillips, Craig and Dean, CeCe Winas and may others.

Here are two of my favorite songs…

You are my king
By Phillips, Craig and Dean.

I'm forgiven because you were forsaken,
I'm accepted, you were condemned.
I'm alive and well, your spirit is within me
Because you died and you rose again.

Amazing love how can it be
That you my king would die for me
Amazing love I know it's true
And it's my joy to honor you
In all I do, I honor you.


How great you are
By Phillips, Craig and Dean.

A thousand sparking stars above,
A midnight summer sky
The majesty and wonder of
The oceans endless tide

And the more I see the more
I can't explain
How the one who set the world
In place could even know my name.

And I'm amazed, I'm so Amazed

How great you are
How small I am
How awesome is your mighty hand
And I am captured by the
Wonder of it all
And I will offer all my praise
With all my heart
For all my days.
How great you are
How great you are
How great you are.


I also love CeCe Winas Song

The alabaster box
By CeCe Winas

The room grew still as she made her way to Jesus
And she stumbles through the tears that made her blind
She felt such pain, some spoke in anger
Heard folks wisper, "There's no place here for her kind."

Still on she came through the shame that flushed her face.
Til' at last she knelt before his feet.
And though she spoke no words everything she said was heard.
As she poured her love for the master from her box of alabaster.

And I've come to pour my praise on him like oil
from Mary's alabaster box.
Don't be angry if I wash his feet with my tears
and dry them with my hair.
You weren't there, the night he found me
You did not feel what I felt when he wraped his love all around me
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box.

I can't forget the way life used to be
I was a prisoner to the sin that had me bound
And I spent my days, poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box I thought I'd found

Until the day when Jesus came to me and healed my soul
with the wonder of his touch.
So now I'm giving back to him all the praise he's worthy of
I've been forgiven and that's why I love him so much.
And I've come to pour my praise on him like oil
from Mary's alabaster box.
Don't be angry if I wash his feet with my tears
and dry them with my hair, my hair.
You weren't there, the night he found me
You did not feel what I felt when he wraped his love all around me
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box,
You don't know the cost of my praise,
And you don't know the cost of the oil in my alabaster box.



Here is a poem that I wrote which expresses my feeling for the Savior

The Lord Jesus Christ
By Appreciable Goodfaithpoet

The loving Atonement performed by our Lord
Can help us to find harmony
God loved us so much that he sent forth the word
To reach out and to save you and me

Jesus alone could rescue and save
And help us be made perfect too
Helping us to get the mercy we crave
By showing us what we should do

The penalty warranted by all our sin
Required the infinite gift
The battle with Satan we each can win
Our burden the Lord helps us lift

From the beginning the Lord was ordained
To die for what justice demands
Salvation from sin can now be obtained
By following Jesus' commands

We each can dwell with our Father above
As we follow the Lord's righteous course
His sacrifice shows a supreme act of love
Let us drink from this spring at it's source

The Savior has suffered these things for our sake
To redeem all mankind from the fall
Upon us his name we gladly will take
He offers his love unto all

We can all go where there's nothing unclean
Through Jesus alone this takes place
We can be saved from things evil and mean
To again see his loving face

The Savior had power to lay down his life
And take it up after its end
He asks us to flee contention and strife
And come home with him as a friend

He suffered temptations but gave them no heed
And lived life in pure innocence
He knows how to help in our hour of need
For all he has made recompense

The blood of the Lamb for our sake was shed
He gave his life freely for me
He prayed to our God as he suffered and bled
For help to endure agony

Because of the love that our dear Savior had
For the will of our Father and God
Our hearts fill with joy and are truly glad
For he finished the course that he trod

We can find peace through the powerful name
That broke bands at Gethsemane
We can be lifted up out of our shame
By the hope found upon Calvary

We must accept the Atonement he gave
Or face pure, strict justice alone
We all need the grace that's might to save
We deserve no mercy on our own

Our Lord took away the sharp sting found in death
He was the first of those who slept
We shall live again after losing life's breath
Joy comes to his children who’ve wept

The Savior invites all the world unto him
We'll be judged for the works we have done
That day will restore each joint and each limb
Through the power of God's perfect son

Those who are righteous will have so much joy
And praise the Lord eternally
His sacrifice saves each girl and each boy
That died in their pure infancy

So let us have faith in our dear Savior's call
And overcome evil today
Let's deliver his sweet invitation to all
To be baptized and walk in his way

We all can become truly born again
Receiving the spirit to guide
And this must take place in the hearts of all men
To be filled with his pure love inside

If you will repent he will receive you
Come feast on his love to the end
Trust in the Lord in all that you do
And his grace he freely will send

Partake of his love so exquisite and sweet
Drink deep of the doctrines he'll send
Some day we will kneel at our dear Savior's feet
Where our pains and our sorrows he'll mend

He knows all the trials we each face right now
Come cast on the Lord all your care
We all can be healed and he'll show us how
He atoned so that we could come there



Here is more praise about Jesus by an unknown author…

Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not that my Lord was crucified,
By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
Till' my guilty soul imploring turned to Calvary.

Now I’ve given to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!

It was for crimes that I had done
That he groaned upon the tree.
He wants that God and I be one
Showing love beyond degree.

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

Lord, You're my friend and you are my brother
Even though you are a king
And I long to worship you!


I can behold his loving face
As his image in me appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.

But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
My life, thy light to show.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
“As ye deal with My condemners, so with you My grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave;
So the world shall be His footstool, All the righteous he will save,
Our God is marching on.

Though wild winds blowing,
My boats o’erflowing,
The storm can’t harm my trusting soul,
For Jesus walks the waves that roll;
His voice I hear, which calms my fear,
“ ’Tis I, be not afraid.”

Be not afraid, He knows thy heart,
And He doth care for thee;
Of all thy grief He shares a part,
Stands by thy side, He’ll not depart,
If thou wilt faithful be.

Be not afraid, O helpless one,
Trust in His boundless grace;
Say from the heart, “Thy will be done,
Finish the work Thou hast begun,
Bring me to see Thy face.”

Be still and know that I am God
I am the Lord that healeth thee,
Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy pain and fears.

Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
And with great kindness takes our grief away.
Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise
Lifting upward to Thy Lord on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways,
So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward with thy great power.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Crown Him the Son of God, before the world began,
And ye who tread where He hath trod, praise his name again.
Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed or' the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing, Who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, to comfort those who cry.

Crown Him the Lord of peace, Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end, and round His pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime.
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me;
Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.

Every day, the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He Whose Name is Counselor and Power;

The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”
This the pledge to me He made.

Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.

Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Ever to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.

In simple trust like theirs who heard,
Beside the Syrian sea,
The gracious calling of the Lord,
Let us, like them, without a word,
Rise up and follow Thee.

With a deep hush subduing all
The troubles in our town
We hear thy loving call,
As noiseless let Thy blessing fall
As fell Thy manna down.

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

Raise our thoughts to something higher
Blessed with healing balm
Purify our hearts desire
Speak through the earthquake, wind and fire,
with thy still voice of calm.

Through your love and through the ram,
You saved the son of Abraham;
Through the power of your hand,
Turned the sea into dry land.
To the outcast on her knees,
You were the God who really sees,

Through the years you’ve made it clear,
That the time of Christ was near,
Though the people couldn’t see
What messiah ought to be.

Though your word contained the plan,
They just couldn't understand
O Christ! Whose voice the waters hear,
Help us conquer doubt and fear.

You, that walked the foaming deep,
And calm, amidst its rage, did sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
And calm the surging, troubled, sea.

Precious Savior, Lord of hosts,
Who calms the waves that pound the coasts,
Protect us from the raging sea
And lift us up to walk with thee.

Grant us from Thy great throne above
The shield and shelter of Thy love.
Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.

Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.

On every hand the foe we find
Drawn up in dread array.
Let tents of ease be left behind,
And onward to the fray.
Salvation’s helmet on each head,
With truth all girt about,
The earth shall tremble ’neath our tread,
And echo with our shout.

Take from us desires for sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its Beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Our love for you will last forever
All your truth we will receive
Lord, suddenly return and never,
Never more your temples leave.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;

I want to see heavenly skies
Bright with thy praise
When leaving life's toil and grief
As up to thee I raise.
There in my Father's home safe and at rest
Wrapped in my Saviors love as perfectly I'm blessed

When I did good on the Sabbath
By curing the lame
The Self-righteous people said
That it was a shame
So they whipped me and they stripped me
And they hung me high
And left me there on that cross to die.

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us the spirit's dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation;
Enter every trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,
Into every troubled breast!
Who thought on us amidst our woes,
And rescued us from all our foes;
Who daily feeds each living thing;
O thank the Heav’n’s Almighty King.
O praise the Lord, for He is kind,
Give thanks to Him with heart and mind;
Unchanging God, we praise thy name.
To all eternity the same.

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon our mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
Here in this desert seen?
And did his countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here?
Its houses did this valley fill?
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In this, our blooming desert land.

I got my eyes on Jesus
got my mind made up
and I tell it everywhere I go
Ain't nobody gonna turn me around
'Cause Jesus is in control.

Yes, Some bright morning when this life is done
On Celestial shores I'll see the Son.
Oh how glad and happy when we meet,
No more cruel shackles on my feet.

Just a few more weary days and then
To a land where joy will never end
When the shadows of this life are gone
Like a bird from a cage I'll fly on.

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
The Savior has power to comfort my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

The Savior is my great example.
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
He helps my dying spirit live.

All to Jesus I surrender;
Humbly at His feet I bow,
Worldly pleasures all forsaken;
For my Lord has shown me how.

I will follow him forever
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power;
Let Thy blessing fall on me.

Thank you for the love inside me
Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to Thy Name!

Thy pure love I truly feel
In all its depth and height;
You comprehend eternity
And grasp the infinite.

I'll send the Spirits holy flame
To bless the crippled and the Lame
A feast of comfort I'll provide
Until their hearts are satisfied

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where those abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

"Let not your heart be troubled", His tender word I hear
My knowledge of his goodness, calms all doubt and fear.
Through the storm I see him walking on the sea.
He comes with love and power to save and rescue me.

In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary, I never will despair;
I know that He is leading throughout Eternity
I've tasted of the comfort his spirit gives to me.
Rejoice, Oh Saints Rejoice, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!

The Hope of all who seek Him, Come and you will find,
There is abundant Joy, in the plan that he designed.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
And his example guides me
Along life's narrow way.

He lives, Salvation to impart
And as I testify "he lives."
The spirit fills my heart.

Lord, I trust Thy mighty power,
Wondrous are Thy works of old;
Lord, I need thee every hour
Please receive me to thy fold

Help me follow in thy way
Thou art the potter, I am the clay
Mold me and make me after thy will
To see thy Salvation I will stand still.

I trust in thee and every word that you say.
I'm wounded and weary, Oh help me, I pray!
Power, all power forever, surely is Thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

We know thy church will evermore
Receive thy guidance from above.
Offering up on every shore
Thy pure unending love.

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf; Give praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

For in my heart I first believed,
Believed with faith divine,
And now a witness I've received
I call the Savior mine.

I felt my Lord’s atoning blood
To my own soul applied;
I'm loved by him, the Son of God,
For me, he bled and died!

Awake from sins dark sleep,
And Christ shall give you light,
Cast your sins into the deep,
Watch crimson turn to white.

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus Christ, constant will remain.
The Devils power will not cause the Church of Christ to fail
The words of Daniel teach us, his kingdom will prevail.

’Twas the “old ship of Zion,” thus sailing along,
All aboard her seemed joyous, I heard their sweet song;
And the Captain’s kind ear, ever ready to hear,
Caught my wail of distress, as I cried out in fear:

The good Captain commanded a boat to be low’red,
And with tender compassion He took me on board;
O soul, sinking down ’neath sin’s merciless wave,
The strong arm of our Captain is mighty to save.

Praise to the Lord, Who, when tempests their warfare are waging,
Who, when the elements madly around thee are raging,
Biddeth them cease, turneth their fury to peace,
Whirlwinds and waters assuaging.

Praise to the Lord, Who, when darkness of sin is abounding,
Who, when the godless do triumph, all virtue confounding,
Sheddeth His light, chaseth the horrors of night,
Saints with His mercy surrounding.

Praise Him for His grace and favor
To our fathers in distress.
Praise Him still the same as ever,
He will help us to progress.

Rescue the perishing, duty demands it;
Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
Back to the narrow way patiently win them;
Help them to feel his pure joy inside.

Seek ye first the kingdom; not the things of earth.
Priceless are the treasures of immortal worth.
Like a flitting shadow, time will pass away,
But the heav’nly riches change not, nor decay.

Seek ye first the kingdom; seek the gift of God.
’Tis the Savior’s offer purchased by His blood.
Seek ye first His glory; be it life’s sweet aim;
Him to serve and honor, trusting in His Name.

The time approaches when we'll go on
to meet our loved ones who are gone
And we must be sure, before we're at the brink
That we find each missing family link

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my silver and my gold:
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
My whole soul as you shall choose.

Take my will, and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
I give my will to serve thine own
I humbly kneel before thy throne.

Take my love, and help me give
The truth to others, that they may live
That I may serve and always be
A faithful servant unto thee.

E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream of hope, a pure supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die.
Then in a nobler, sweeter song, I’ll sing Thy power to save,
On Resurrection morning, when you call me from the grave.

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And the truths that we have heard.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
And will be to the end.

To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our peace and joy when the Savior we'll see.

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for those who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light we can find from the Savior,
And a life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Seeing his kind, loving face,
Let the glare of the world fade away
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Free from the Devils dominion
With abundant joy we can share.

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

Walk in the light: so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love
His Spirit only can bestow
Who reigns in light above.

Walk in the light: and sin abhor
Forsake your sins faithfully
The blood of Jesus Christ, thy Lord,
Can wash you and set you free.

Walk in the light: and thou shalt find
Thy heart made truly His
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined
In Whom no darkness is.

Walk in the light: and e’en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear;
Glory shall chase away its gloom,
For Christ has conquered there.

There'll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me.


O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
God knows our every weakness;
Take all things to him in prayer.

Our dear Father, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear
May we ever be bringing
All to Thee in earnest prayer.

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus,
Sing His mercy and His grace.
In the mansions bright and blessed
He’ll prepare for us a place.

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Oft on earth He healed the sufferer by His mighty hand
Still our sicknesses and our sorrows will go at His command
He who gave His healing virtue to a faithful woman’s touch
To those with faith sufficient he still can give as much.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;

Softly I hear him calling,
Calling at the close of day;
Sweetly his tones are falling,
"Come to the throne and pray."

Come ere the shadows lengthen,
Bring him your troubled heart;
Come where his grace may strengthen,
Come from thy cares apart.

Smiles of his love await thee,
Lighting his lovely face;
Just to behold his beauty,
Pray in your secret place.

Boldly we may approach him,
Mercy and grace to own;
Tempted like us, He bid us
Come to the Father's throne.

Come Lord to reign as rightful King of Kings
Both kind and good with healing in thy wings,
Tears for all woes a heart for every plea-
Come friend of sinners and abide with me.

I see thy face before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem and crown him Lord of all.
Crown him ye, morning stars of light, who fixed this floating ball;
Now hail the strength of Israel's might, and crown him lord of all.

Crown him, ye martyrs of your God, who from His alter call;
Extol the Stem of Jesse's Rod, and crown Him Lord of all.
Ye seed of Israel's chosen race, ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail him Who saves you by His grace, and crown him Lord of all.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He loves them, high or lowly,
Of large or small estate.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might say
How great is God Almighty,
Who made both night and day.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I've already come;
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and portion be,
For his pure love endures.

Thank you mormonsoprano,

Chris Rice and Nicole C. Mullen were great. Thanks for the tip, I've added them to my list. I especially liked Chris Rice on acoustic guitar. Excellent.

There is no LDS or mormon music... but if you like Christian music, I recommend Mercy Me, Josh Wilson... but mostly Andrew Peterson... great poet of God's. I pray the music will lead you on the righteous path.
