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

I know thee, O my Savior
And seek thy endless grace
For mercy and for comfort
Until I see thy face.
I honor thy Atonement,
I need thy help today
To be a better servant
To follow and obey.


As children of our Father,
We’ve left our heavenly home
To come to earth for testing
And often feel alone.
Each of us need thee, Savior,
For we can’t find the way
Through darkness and confusion
Back to eternal day.


Just as thou helped the beggars
Thou asketh me to bless
My brothers and my sisters,
To bless as I’ve been blessed.
How often thou hast helped me
When I cried out at night.
I go to help the weary, the poor
Bearing thy light.


Thy hands were pierced and bleeding
As thou for me didst die.
My hands will serve and labor,
Thy teachings I’ll apply.
When I seek out the suffering,
Both sinning and sinless,
Thy hands shall strengthen my hands.
In blessing, I’ll be blessed.
