Ah! Sarah’s gone—Dear Babe—Her journey’s ore! She breathe'd— she wept.— but she shall weep no more. How short her time by providence assigned! About 2 years she was on earth confine'd! Angelic bands her spirit did convey, To happier realmes in everlasting day: Our lovely child has first arrived at home, to see the splendor of the eternal throne. And shout us welcome to the promised land. Our Sarah—Lovely Babe—Her infant frame, No more shall feel the smart of mortal pain, She only sleeps! Though motionless she lies. Her sacred dust, refined, again shall rise, to shine in bliss most exquisitly bright, Surpassing far the sun’s refulgent light. And is she dead? O no! She entered life the moment she escaped this world of strife: She’s now from earth removed, her soul expands, And by the throne in holy rapture stands; Expanding still, she drinks the blissful streames, And basks unsully' delighted, in unsully’d beames; Now hears with wonder the melodious strain, And joins to celebrate Mesiah’s name; Her mind illumined now with glad surprise, Sees happier worlds, unseen from mortal eyes. She now perhaps ^from^ Zion’s hight sublime Looks down and views the simple things of time; Or, if permited, to the earth descends, And gladly mingles with her earthly friends; Although unsee her happy spirit near, May hear the sigh, and see the falling tear, May with concern behold maternal grief, And fondly wish to sooth and give relief.
~ Phoebe Woodruff
Now a few words from Brother Joseph sermon on the living’s being baptized for the dead that they may be judged according to men in the flesh; he has learned by revelation that those in this church may be baptized for any of their relatives who are dead and had not a privalege privaledge of hearing it this gospel
~ Phoebe Woodruff
Brother Joseph makes this doctrin look verry plain and consisten— he has been bringing strange things forward to the church this season— strong meat— he has delivered a course of lectures this season which were verry interesting— I could not attend only apart of the time but often wished you could be present— he says that the throne of God stands on the earth like this earth only it is cleansed &c &c— says that this earth is the wickedest planate that ever God made and that its inhabitants are will have the greatest glory if they overcome evil
