This song is referenced by Song 101 – This New Song. The image shows Alma Law, his daughter Eden and son Corbin and their friend Lydia Greer at The Lion’s Mouth picture glyph west of Cedar City. The song is about Alma, in The Book of Mormon, when the voice of the Lord told him how blessed he is, and how blessed are those who were baptized in the waters of Mormon. Alma was told he was blessed because of his exceeding faith in the words alone of the Lord’s servant Abinadi, and the people baptized were blessed because of their exceeding faith in the words alone which Alma had spoken. Alma was told they were blessed because they established a church among them, and because this people were willing to bear His name. What a wonderful knowledge to know we have covenanted with the Lord, and that we shall have eternal life when we serve Him, go forth in His name, and gather together His sheep. Reading the words of the voice of the Lord telling Alma that He will take upon himself the sins of the world, for He created us, and He grants those who believe a place at his right hand is deeply spiritually touching for me. The sorrow for those who never come to know our Savior when they realize he never knew them and they depart into everlasting fire is overwhelming. I hope those who listen to these words will come to hear His voice, be received into His church, and recognize as often as we repent, He will forgive us, just as we forgive one another our trespasses. For these words were declared by the voice of the Lord to Alma and we have the words to read and to accept or to reject, along with the accompanying consequences.
