Father

Joseph Smith


I have remembered scenes of my childhood.
I have thought of my father
And of his noble deeds.
He was a great and good man.
He was of noble stature.
He possessed a holy and virtuous mind.
He never did a mean act.
Many of his kind words to me
Are written on the tablet of my heart.

Prophet Joseph Smith
