Mormon 6:16–22

And my soul was rent with anguish, because of the slain of my people, and I cried:

“O ye fair ones,
how could ye have departed from the ways of the Lord!

O ye fair ones,
how could ye have rejected that Jesus,
who stood with open arms to receive you!

Behold, if ye had not done this,
ye would not have fallen.

But behold, ye are fallen,
and I mourn your loss.

O ye fair sons and daughters,
ye fathers and mothers,
ye husbands and wives,
ye fair ones,
how is it that ye could have fallen!

But behold, ye are gone,
and my sorrows cannot bring your return.

And the day soon cometh
that your mortal must put on immortality,
and these bodies
which are now moldering in corruption
must soon become incorruptible bodies.

And then ye must stand
before the judgment–seat of Christ
to be judged according to your works
and if it so be that ye are righteous,
then are ye blessed with your fathers
who have gone before you.

O that ye had repented
before this great destruction had come upon you.

But behold, ye are gone,
and the Father,
yea, the Eternal Father of heaven,
knoweth your state.

And he doeth with you according to his justice and mercy.”
