From Section: Persecution for the Church

From Page: Zarahemla Under Monarchial Rule

Blessed art thou, Alma, and blessed are they
_who were baptized in the waters of Mormon.

Thou art blessed because of thy exceeding faith
_ in the words alone of my servant Abinadi.

And blessed are they because of their exceeding
_faith in the words alone
_which thou hast spoken unto them.

And blessed art thou because thou hast established
_a church among this people;
_and they shall be established,
_and they shall be my people.

Yea, blessed is this people
_who are willing to bear my name;
_for in my name shall they be called;
_and they are mine.
