Through Joseph Smith the ages spoke.
The voice of God men’s spirits woke;
Again Christ gave the battle call –
Redemption’s victory o’er the fall.
Clothed with the Priesthood Joseph rent
The shrouds of ignorance, and sent
Abroad the glorious message clear –
“Salvation is to all who hear!
To all who follow God’s command
In righteousness, and faithful stand!”
