    Thank You, Brother Joseph

    Thank you, Brother Joseph,

    For reading in James,

    For translating plates,

    For suffering pain.

    Thank you, Brother Joseph,

    For teaching the way,

    For preaching the gospel,

    For laughter and play.

    Thank you, Brother Joseph,

    For helping each hour,

    For receiving restored

    Priesthood power—

    Power to hope

    And help and heal.

    Power to pray

    And baptize and seal.

    Power to preach

    And translate and learn.

    Power to teach

    Of kingdoms to earn.

    Thank you, Brother Joseph.
