Book of Mormon stories, which I learned on mother’s knee,
Are about the Lamanites in ancient history.
Long ago their fathers came from far across the sea,
Giv’n this land if they lived righteously.
Samuel the Lamanite, high on the city wall,
Came to warn the people, and repentance was his call.
Arrows could not hit him, for a man of God was he,
And he taught in the land righteously.
Once two thousand sons of God were called to fight the foe.
Marching as an army into battle they did go.
They believed that Christ the Lord their guardian would be.
They had learned they should live righteously.
After Christ was crucified and died for you and me,
He came forth to teach the truth to all who would be free.
Hands were laid upon each child. He blessed them tenderly.
Here they lived in the land righteously.
Lamanites met others who were seeking liberty,
And the land soon welcomed all who wanted to be free.
Book of Mormon stories teach that we must brothers be,
Giv’n this land if we serve Christ our King.
Giv’n this land if we live righteously.
