This summer I did the Book of Mormon challenge with the youth of the Spring Creek Ward! It was a blessing and joy to read this sacred book over the summer. As I completed the book of Moroni and pondered all of the holy prophets throughout the book, my heart swelled with joy and love for these precious sons. I thought I would share the poem I wrote when I completed the Book of Mormon.
Precious Sons of God
Precious sons of God you show me where to go,
Your holy written words guide me safety home,
Your voices call out from the past a beacon in my day,
Your holy light gives me strength as I journey on my way.
Precious sons of God, servants of the Lord,
Your witness in this book is Gods holy word.
As I see the past my future is made bright,
Precious sons of God you bring heavens light.
You honored your beloved Redeemer, and served with all you had,
Your testimony lifts my heart and makes my spirit glad.
When I read your faithful record a greater joy is known.
As I turn each holy page the truth of God is shown.
Precious sons of God, your life and light live on,
Thank you for your sacrifice; for leading me back home.
Forever I will treasure the light you placed in me,
Your testimony of the Savior was beautiful to see!
Precious sons of God, please know I hold you dear,
I see your worthy example, it beckons me from fear.
Precious sons of God, in you I see my King,
A witness strong and true of all that He doth bring.
When I meet you there at the great and final day,
I will thank you again for leading me on my way!
Precious sons of God, your witness now lives in me,
Behold what you have done, the seed is now a tree!
Sacred is the record that Joseph brought to light,
Holy is its witness of heaven’s perfect light!
Sacred sons of God, you lived each day with love,
Now you stand forever with you Savior up above!
