strtoupper('T')hink Not, when You Gather to Zion (Eliza Rstrtoupper('. S')now)

Think not when you gather to Zion
Your troubles and trials are through,
That nothing but comfort and pleasure
Are waiting in Zion for you.
Think not when you gather to Zion,
That all will be holy and pure;
That fraud and deception are banished,
And confidence wholly secure.
Think not when you gather to Zion,
The prize and the victory won.
Think not that the warfare is ended,
The work of salvation is done.
No, no; for the great prince of darkness
A tenfold exertion will make,
When he sees you go the fountain,
Where freely the truth you may take.
“There was a time when we were driven by mobs, and our faith was tried in various ways… . There are no mobs now, we do not have our houses burnt down now, or our cattle shot down. But shall we be without trials? … It is necessary in the providence of God—that there should be liquor saloons, etc., so that Latter-day Saints … if they want to drink beer and get drunk, or go in and play billiards and gamble, or go to other places that are worse—can do so. ‘But,’ says one, ‘I thought in coming to Zion I was coming to a place of purity where none of these things existed.’ If that had been the case how would you have been tried?” (George Q. Cannon, Journal of Discourses 22:108)
