Lyrics: 2-7 Scene
ANDERSON
I was not with the Prophet long.
FORBES
But you knew him.
ANDERSON
But now what? Where he is, the vision may also be.
CLAYTON
The sword is fashioned and tempered.
We breathe the dust and remember.
The Twelve remain.
FORBES
A quorum beside him.
CLAYTON
Whose hand becomes him?
The light in the Temple came,
The covenants came like the clarion of Moroni
From the wilderness of Sidon:
The ancient land was where he walked,
The sky where he looked.
The grain grew under his gaze,
The silk of Canaan in his voice.
ANDERSON
We listened and forgot the world.
CLAYTON
His call was the ache of knowing
The morning and evening of God
As He walked in the upper room,
And though we tried to call him young
The elderly God opened our souls
Like the green and wondering spring,
And we could not speak for wonder,
The faceted truths and imperishable love.
ANDERSON
We gave ourselves to the god he saw
And witnessed God in us as Joseph lived,
But now his body declines to dust,
His hand invites the bone.
FORBES
And shall he live in us as we go?
We leave the fields and cities, lost in ourselves.
ANDERSON
The Twelve remain.
FORBES
We are lost to him.
