Scriptures

But who would imagine prophetic truths
From centuries ago
Could touch my twentieth-century heart
And guide my space-age soul!

Mine Beyond Death: Doctrine and Covenants 132

My beloved shall be mine beyond death,
For by His sure nails we are joined.
Though our bones go down to darkness,
I shall never be parted from her.
With the just we shall await the dawn;
In the morning we shall rise with the sun.
Our children will gather about us;
On Mount Zion we shall stand together.
In the fields of a new earth I shall embrace her;
In the gardens of a new Eden she will receive me.
Our generations will fill the heavens,
And worlds without end will honor her.
