Lyrics: 2-8 Scene
(Nancy Dayton approaches.)
Nancy... the Church is finished. We shall return to Nauvoo.
NANCY
Finished? Finished? Never! Never!
I saw Brother Brigham before you left.
He was quiet in the city's square,
Before the Temple. He took a stalk
And rolled it in his hands and let it fall.
Then he bent over slowly, his great shoulders
Dusty and heavy, and picked it up,
And gazed into his hands for a moment.
A carriage came. Brother Rigdon, I think.
ANDERSON
And what of the Church?
NANCY
We shall hear from them.
ANDERSON
We should bury Joseph soon.
NANCY
When I was not the woman I am,
I spoke to you of the Church,
And you told me of Joseph.
He was the flame of your eyes.
FORBES
Joseph, Joseph.
He was the flame of your eyes.

NANCY, FORBES, ANDERSON
Joseph, Joseph.
He was the flame of our eyes.
Will we see him again?
