My lesson today for the primary kids is on the hymns. I found this hymn in the original LDS hymnbook from 1835, and I thought it was really touching to imagine how it must have affected many of my own ancestors. Almost all of my LDS ancestors were immigrants from Europe. It would have been heartbreaking to leave their native land behind, even being motivated by faith. This song captures those emotions beautifully. I had to share it with you.
