The Golden Plates

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Gratefully

1. The golden plates lay hidden

Deep in the mountainside,

Until God found one faithful,

In whom he could confide.

2. A record made by Nephi,

Written in days of old;

Now, in the Book of Mormon,

The story is retold.
