    The President Speaks

    These three then,

    No part left out,

    None removed,

    Measure the true believer:

    1. That Jesus Christ is the

    Son of God.

    Literally!

    That he lives,

    Was resurrected,

    Exalted.

    2. To Joseph Smith he spoke

    In latter days.

    This prophet, hearing and

    Believing,

    And obeying,

    Organized the Church of Christ

    On earth.

    3. That Joseph truly gave

    To the succeeding Prophet

    All the keys!

    Authorities!

    Powers!

    And so on until now

    The living prophet

    Stands,

    All heavenly power his

    To speak for Christ.

    Anyone believing less than this

    Is no believer.
