    Description

    William W. Phelps, who wrote "The Spirit of God," was born in 1792, and just three days after the organization of the Church, he purchased a copy of the Book of Mormon from Parley P. Pratt and was later baptized. This hymn is richly entwined with the history of the Restoration.
