Lyrics: (sung) And it came to pass
That there a­rose a peo­ple
who were called the Ne­phites.
And they were true be­liev­ers in Christ.
And they who re­jec­ted the Gos­pel
were called La­man­ites.
And they did not dwin­dle in un­be­lief,
but they did will­ ful­ly re­bel
a­gainst the Gos­pel of Christ.
And they did teach their child­ren
that they should not be­lieve,
e­ven as their fa­thers
From the be­gin­ning did dwin­dle.

(spoken) And then the people who were called the people of Nephi began also to be proud in their hearts because of their exceeding riches, and they began to become vain like unto their brethren the Lamanites.

And I, being fifteen years of age, and being somewhat of a sober mind...

(sung) There­fore I was vis­i­ted of the Lord,
and tas­ted and knew
of the good­ness of Je­sus.
And I did en­dea­vor
to preach un­to this peo­ple,
but my mouth was shut,
and I was for­bid­den
that I should preach un­to them;
For be­hold they had will­ful­ly re­belled
a­gainst their God.
And it came to pass
that there were sor­cer­ies,
and witch­crafts and ma­gics;
and the po­wer of the ev­il one
was wrought u­pon all the face of the land.
