A painter's canvas, clean and bright
Seeks out new colors, once was white;
A vibrant gold and navy blue,
The colors of our sisters true;
 
But each unique and special hue
Creates a sacred, matchless view;
A painting part of history,
Sisters of Relief Society
 
CHORUS:
The Master's canvas is beautiful,
It warms my heart, it stirs my soul,
This sisterhood it represents,
To magnify His love, His love.
 
I stand amazed from my grand view,
This work of art, so pure and new;
I gaze upon, the worth it holds,
The Master's hand, His love unfolds;
 
We're meant to share this love divine,
The love that stands the test of time;
As caring hands reach to embrace,
See smiles upon each sister's face.
 
CHORUS
 
The name I call this masterpiece,
Is one that makes one whisper sweet;
Two words that mean love, charity,
Is my "Relief Society."
Is my "Relief Society."
