by Eliza R. Snow

O my Father, thou that dwellest

In the high and glorious place,

When shall I regain thy presence

And again behold thy face?

In thy holy habitation,

Did my spirit once reside?

In my first primeval childhood,

Was I nurtured near thy side?

For a wise and glorious purpose

Thou has placed me here on earth

And withheld the recollection

Of my former friends and birth;

Yet oft times a secret something

Whispered, “You’re a stranger here,”

And I felt that I had wandered

From a more exalted sphere.

I had learned to call thee Father,

Thru thy Spirit from on high,

But, until the key of knowledge

Was restored, I knew not why.

In the heav’ns are parents single?

No, the thought makes reason stare!

Truth is reason; truth eternal

Tells me I’ve a mother there.

When I leave this frail existence,

When I lay this mortal by,

Father, Mother, may I meet you

In your royal courts on high?

Then, at length, when I’ve completed

All you sent me forth to do,

With your mutual approbation

Let me come and dwell with you.


“Whenever the cold hand of death strikes,

there shines through the gloom and the darkness of that hour

the triumphant figure of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He, the Son of God

who by His matchless and eternal power overcame death.

He is the Redeemer of the world.

He gave His life for each of us.

He took it up again and became the firstfruits of them that slept.

He is our comfort, our only true comfort,

when the dark shroud of earthly night closes about us

as the spirit departs the human form.

There stands Jesus the Christ,

the King of glory,

the unblemished Messiah,

the Lord Emmanuel.”


Gordon B. Hinkley
