“The First,” Ensign, Apr. 1985, 7

The First

I do not wonder

Heaven’s fire

which brings to earth

light;

the sphere life-giving,

is called

“the sun.”

For there is One

who likewise rose to heaven—

light and life of all the world—

who from the first was

and ever is

“The Son.”

Nor do I wonder

that, of seven days,

Sabbath worship hours

should light

a morning termed

“Sunday.”
