Lyrics: 2-8 Scene <br/> (Nancy Dayton approaches.) <br/>Nancy... the Church is finished. We shall return to Nauvoo. <br/>NANCY <br/>Finished? Finished? Never! Never! <br/>I saw Brother Brigham before you left. <br/>He was quiet in the city's square, <br/>Before the Temple. He took a stalk <br/>And rolled it in his hands and let it fall. <br/>Then he bent over slowly, his great shoulders <br/>Dusty and heavy, and picked it up, <br/>And gazed into his hands for a moment. <br/>A carriage came. Brother Rigdon, I think. <br/>ANDERSON <br/>And what of the Church? <br/>NANCY <br/>We shall hear from them. <br/>ANDERSON <br/>We should bury Joseph soon. <br/>NANCY <br/>When I was not the woman I am, <br/>I spoke to you of the Church, <br/>And you told me of Joseph. <br/>He was the flame of your eyes. <br/> FORBES <br/>Joseph, Joseph. <br/>He was the flame of your eyes. <br/> <br/> NANCY, FORBES, ANDERSON <br/>Joseph, Joseph. <br/>He was the flame of our eyes. <br/>Will we see him again?
