“Joy,” Friend, Mar. 1972, inside front cover–1

Joy

Follow the directions of the Book of Mormon,

And pray for your families,

Your cattle, your flocks, your herds, your corn,

And all things that you possess;

Ask the blessing of God upon all your labors,

And everything that you engage in.

Keep the commandments of God;

And then you will be able more

Perfectly to understand the difference

Between right and wrong—

Between the things of God

And the things of men;

And your path will be like that

Of the just, which shineth brighter

And brighter.

In obedience there is joy

And peace unspotted.

Prophet Joseph Smith
