A Musical Tour of Helaman

Helaman 3:28-30

The Book of Mormon tells of a time when many people repented and joined the church.  Mormon says that the Word of God will lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery and land their souls in the kingdom of heaven.

Jeanne Evans shares “Press Forward, Saints” in American Sign Language.  (LDS Hymns, 81; words by Marvin K. Gardner, b. 1952; music by Vanja Y. Watkins, b. 1938)

Helaman 5

Christian missionaries Nephi and Lehi were imprisoned by the Lamanites.  But the Book of Mormon tells how God was merciful to these Lamanites, and showed them the amazing miracle of surrounding His servants with fire.  

“Surrounded by Fire,” by Marilyn Arnold and Maurine Ozment, recounts this marvelous event.  The song is from their book, Sacred Hymns of the Book of Mormon, 19.

The Book of Mormon records the teachings of Helaman to his sons:

“And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of god, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.”

Helaman 14:14-19

Samuel the Lamanite taught the Book of Mormon people that “He surely must die that salvation may come; yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient that he dieth, to bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, that thereby men may be brought into the presence of the Lord.”

Helaman 14:30,31

In the Book of Mormon, Samuel the Lamanite prophet warned the people that they alone were responsible for how they responded to his message of the Savior:

“And now, remember, remember, my brethren, that whosoever perisheth, perishet unto himself; and whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; for behold, ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free.”

A priesthood choir from the Logan and Ogden institutes of religion sings “Know This, That Every Soul Is Free” at General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  (LDS Hymns, 240; anonymous words; music by Roger L. Miller, b. 1937)

Bass singer Chris Douglas Clark sings all the parts of “The Lord Is My Shepherd.” (LDS Hymns, 108; words by James Montgomery, 1771-1854; music by Thomas Koschat, 1845-1914)
