Lyrics: And it came to pass <br/>that when we had gathered in all our people in one <br/>to the land of Cumorah, <br/>behold I, Mormon, began to be old; <br/>and knowing it to be the last struggle of my people, <br/>and having been commanded of the Lord <br/>that I should not suffer the records <br/>which had been handed down by our fathers, <br/>which were sacred, <br/>to fall into the hands of the Lamanites, <br/>(for the Lamanites would destroy them) <br/>therefore I made this record out of the plates of Nephi, <br/>and hid up in the hill Cumorah <br/>all the records which had been entrusted to me <br/>by the hand of the Lord, <br/>save it were these few plates <br/>which I gave unto my son Moroni.
