From "Joseph Smith the Prophet." Vocal solo, piano accompaniment. PDF format.
The wind through the cypress made them sway
and rolled the clouds back that winter day.
The sun shone through long enough to say
your baby was here, but cannot stay.
For there are more important things to do
and she must add a gleam to heaven’s hue
to brighten the pathway for one and all.
For through the darkness, great men fall.
This little spirit so pleasant and fair
returned to the ones who were waiting there.
And when I walk out in the night divine,
I know one of the stars that shine is mine.
She came to the Earth for just a while,
not long enough to see her smile.
For this little baby we loved so much
was just too precious for a mother’s touch.
