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