Before the World Was
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:4, 7)
Before mists of mortality veiled eons past,
we lived with the Father, loved His Son.
In heavenly councils, spirit daughters
and sons, learned God’s plan
to fashion a world, organize man,
and provide a Savior, should we fall.
The Great Jehovah would rescue all
who chose to obey and walk in His way.
Before the world was, the Chosen One
gave God the glory and offered to come.
Here am I. Send me, said the I AM.
Shouting for joy, we sang together
and praised the Lamb.
