Earthly Governments and Heavenly Kingdoms
27 April 1999

The Lord instructed Joseph Smith
In these, the latter days,
That Saints should here obey the laws,
And follow heaven's ways.

Each country was established
To here secure the rights
And privileges of countryment,
And even noble knights.

And right here in America,
God chose great men to be
The ones to here establish
Our country's liberty,

In order that His kingdom
Could be restored to earth,
To help us gain salvation,
And great eternal worth.

Without the laws of government,
We'd have no freedom here,
To worship God, the Father,
Who to our hearts is dear.

That's why the Constitution
Was established in this land,
And why we must protect it,
Helping others understand

The reason for its being,
Why God meant it to be
The most important document
In mankind's history.

We must safeguard our freedom,
And here obey the laws,
So that God's heavenly kingdom
Can here promote His cause,

To help us gain salvation,
While here upon the earth,
While learning to obey God's laws,
Of great eternal worth.

Of this I so testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Your friend and brother.

Jim
