“Belshazzar,” Ensign, Feb. 1976, 48

Belshazzar

We are all too light.

The burden of our sins—

Defying Newton—

Makes our end rise

Upon those truthful scales.

We live with but one hope:

That grace and mercy,

Those unearned gifts,

Will tip the balance back to us

And counter the great weight

That justice owns.
