See the mighty priesthood gathered: Firm in serried ranks they stand

Setting the mood for the Priesthood Commemoration Fireside May 3 was a robust rendition of "See the Mighty Priesthood Gathered" (Hymns, No. 325) by a combined Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthood chorus from the Bountiful, Woods Cross and Val Verda Utah regions.

"It is certainly an impressive sight," said Elder Stephen D. Nadauld of the Seventy, "to look out at you and have the words to the hymn still echo: `See the mighty priesthood gathered; Firm in serried ranks they stand – Son and father jointly serving, Gathered in from every land.' What an extraordinary and awe-inspiring group of priesthood holders."On these pages are photos from the fireside and elsewhere illustrating concepts in the first verse of this stirring hymn.
