AT THE PASSING OF PRESIDENT GORDON B. HINCKLEY
2 FEB 2008
So great has been our prophet dear!
Remembered fondly now.
Thy name, thy mem’ry we revere,
With thanks our heads we bow.
For many years we felt thy love
Embrace all from thy heart;
Thy words of counsel from above
Revealed the better part.
Thy smiling face, thy gentle way,
The cheer, the pleasant mien,
The courage everyday to face
Year after year, serene!
Father, bring back our prophet dear!
Although we see him lie;
We know he ever will be near
Exalted now on high!
