On a clear spring morning, Joseph sought the Lord in prayer

In a quiet grove he knelt to ask for wisdom there

Sudden darkness overcame him, and he could not speak

But his courageous heart still prayer this evil power to break

Then in glorious vision Heav’nly Father and His Son calmed

Joseph’s fear and taught him, and his mission had begun.


Joseph Smith the prophet precious knowledge did restore,

Brought forth the Book of Mormon, organized Christ’s church once more

Satan tried to stop the work with mobs of sinful men,

But Joseph trusted in the Lord, stood faithful to the end.

While young his life was taken but the work he left grown great

His testimony ever bright, his mission now complete.
