Song background:

This song came from a phrase I heard in a General Conference talk, "We live with lively hope." I paired it with a tune that had been going through my head for the week prior that I had heard Richard Elliott play as an organ interlude. The current words in our hymnbook "Our Father By Whose Name".

Lyrics: 1. <br/>We live with lively hope, <br/>That when the sun does set <br/>That we with night can cope, <br/>And never will forget. <br/> <br/>The coming sunrise of that day, <br/>When former things shall pass away. <br/>When former things shall pass away. <br/> <br/>2. <br/>We live with vibrant joy <br/>That death is not the end. <br/>That it cannot destroy. <br/>The treasure of a friend. <br/> <br/>For those who sleep shall rise again, <br/>In coming days, we shall know when. <br/>In coming days, we shall know when. <br/> <br/>3. <br/>We live with verdant praise <br/>For Him who made this so, <br/>Who sanctifies our days, <br/>That we His love may know. <br/> <br/>Let earth and heaven echo strong <br/>The rapturous praise of holy song! <br/>The rapturous praise of holy song!
