Lyrics: A Tribute to the Fallen of Ancient and Modern Times <br/> <br/>Text from Mormon 6:10-22 (modified), with place names from modern LDS Church history. <br/> <br/>In 4 sections that play without break. <br/> <br/>[1 - Aftermath of BaTTLE] <br/>[General Mormon walks among the slain, ascends the Hill Cumorah, and surveys the field.] <br/> <br/>[2 - Butcher Bill - traditional military term for the casualty list] <br/>[He names some of the leaders of his troops; the choir recites names of places associated with modern LDS persecution and martyrdom.] <br/> <br/>GENERAL MORMON: <br/> "My men were hewn down ... and I fell wounded in the midst...

O ye fair ones, how could ye have died?]" <br/> "O ye fair ones, how could ye have departed from the ways of the Lord! O ye fair ones, how could ye have rejected that Jesus, who stood with open arms to receive you! Ye are fallen, and I mourn your loss." <br/> "O ye fair sons and daughters, ye fathers and mothers, ye husbands and wives, ye fair ones, how is it that ye could have fallen!" <br/> "[O ye fair ones, how could ye have fallen? O ye fair ones, how could ye have died?]" <br/> "But behold, ye are gone, and my sorrows cannot bring your return." <br/> "O that ye had repented [ere] this great destruction had come upon you." <br/> <br/>[4 - Farewell] <br/> <br/>GENERAL MORMON AND CHOIR: <br/> "But behold, ye are gone, and... the Eternal Father of heaven... doeth with you according to his justice and mercy." <br/> "[Judge them according to thy justice and mercy.]" <br/> "[Ye fair ones, farewell.]" <br/> <br/> <br/>SITES OF LDS MARTYRDOMS/PERSECUTIONS <br/>(0) Cumorah, Palmyra - (link from ancient to modern times) <br/>(1) Hiram OH (24 March 1832 - Joseph Smith tarred/feathered) <br/>(2) Fishing River MO (June 1834 - Zion's Camp - mob scattered by storm; cholera outbreak) <br/>(3) Gallatin MO (6 Aug 1838 - election day violence) <br/>(4) Crooked River MO (25 Oct 1838 - Apostle David Patten killed) <br/>(5) Haun's Mill MO (28 Oct 1838 - massacre) <br/>(6) Far West MO (31 Oct 1838 - mob violence, arrest of Joseph Smith) <br/>(7) Liberty Jail MO (Nov 1838 - Apr 1839 - Joseph Smith et al.) <br/>(8) Carthage Jail IL (27 June 1844 - Joseph & Hyrum Smith martyred) <br/>(9) Nauvoo IL (4 Feb 1846 - Saints leave for west) <br/>(10) Winter Quarters NE (Winter 1846 - 1847 - illness) <br/>(11) High Plains (1846 - on - exodus) <br/>(12) Utah War (1857) <br/>(13) Martin's Cove WY (Oct 1856 - handcart company)
