ble us to redeem them out of their prisons; for  the prisoners shall go free.
23 Let the mountains shout for joy, and all  ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry  lands tell the wonders of your eternal King.  And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow  down with gladness. Let the woods, and all  the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye  solid rocks weep for joy. And let the sun,  moon, and the morning stars sing together,  and let all the sons of God shout for joy.—  And let the eternal creations declare his name  for ever and ever. And again I say, how  glorious is the voice we hear from heaven,  proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation,  and honor, and immortality, and eternal life:  kingdoms, principalities, and powers.
24 Behold the great day of the Lord is at  hand, and who can abide the day of his com ing, and who can stand when he appeareth,  for he is like a refiners fire and like fullers  soap; and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier  of silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi,  and purge them as gold and silver, that they  may offer unto the Lord an offering in right eousness. Let us therefore, as a church and  a people, and as Latter day Saints, offer unto  the Lord an offering in righteousness, and let  us present in his holy when it is fin ished, a book containing the records of our  dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.
25 Brethren, I have many things to say to  you on the subject; but shall now close for  the present, and continue the subject another  time. [p. 429]

Let us therefore, as a church and a people, and as Latter day Saints, offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness, and let us present in his holy when it is finished, a book containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.
