Im pretty sure you know we sing the same ones that you do.
and Im pretty sure you know that I know you Mormons dont sing the same ones that we Christians do...
Oh, you don’t sing Away in a Manger, Once in Davids Royal City, With Wondering Awe, and Angels We Have Heard on High at Christmas? I learn something new every day.
They play the Benny Hill theme song every time they tell the story of Joseph Smiths.........
Respectfully, will you be taking a break from Follow the Prophet and Praise to the Man?
LDS Hymn 103
"Praise to the Man"
Praise to the man who communed with Jehovah!
Jesus annointed that Prophet and Seer.
Blessed to open the last dispensation,
Kings shall extol him, and nations revere.
Hail to the Prophet, ascended to heaven!
Traitors and tyrants now fight him in vain.
Mingling with Gods, he can plan for his brethren;
Death cannot conquer the hero again.
Praise to his mem'ry, he died as a martyr;
Honored and blest be his ever great name!
Long shall his blood, which was shed by assasins,
Plead unto heav'n while the earth lauds his fame.
Great is his glory and endless his priesthood.
Ever and ever the keys he will hold.
Faithful and true he will enter his kingdom,
Crowned in the midst of the prophets of old.
Sacrifice brings forth the blessings of heaven;
Earth must atone for the blood of that man.
Wake up the world for the conflict of justice.
Millions shall know 'Brother Joseph' again.
Because I don't think anyone other than Mormons sing praises to Joseph Smith, Jr. And in particular we don't sing that earth must atone for the blood of Joseph Smith, Jr.
And I don't think anyone else but Mormons celebrate Smithmas.
"Years ago a child was born in an obscure village to poor parents residing in a dwelling they did not own but one that was made available to them through the kindness of others. The child grew to be an extraordinary individual and though he died before his 40th birthday, he transformed the society and world in which he lived.
"Dec. 23 will mark the 207th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Smith Jr., the prophet of the Restoration. Joseph entered the world on a cold Monday morning in Sharon, Vt., shortly before the close of 1805."
That's from the LDS newspaper, the The Deseret News, earlier this week.
So it looks as if things are a *touch* different to somebody outside the LDS fold.
