The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

Eternal Life, Hymns, Video


I love the “There is no end” verses in the hymn, “If You Could Hie to Kolob”.  For me, they poetically evoke a sense of the incalculably immense reach and reward of the Atonement.

What a contrast they are to a daily life of bill-paying and yard work, a reminder for me to raise my spiritual eyes to a higher plane.

The works of God continue,
And worlds and lives abound;
Improvement and progression
Have one eternal round.
There is no end to matter;
There is no end to space;
There is no end to spirit;
There is no end to race.

There is no end to virtue;
There is no end to might;
There is no end to wisdom;
There is no end to light.
There is no end to union;
There is no end to youth;
There is no end to priesthood;
There is no end to truth.

There is no end to glory;
There is no end to love;
There is no end to being;
There is no death above.
There is no end to glory;
There is no end to love;
There is no end to being;
There is no death above.

William W. Phelps

If You Could Hie to Kolob, Hymns, No. 284

And a marvelous musical and video evocation of a creation without an end.

    Thank you for posting the link to that beautiful video. I love that in this musical version, they changed the word “race” to “grace.” An inspired update, for sure!
