And gather them again in bands,
In latter days upon their lands.
 
7 He likewise did foretell the name,
That should be given to the same,
His and his father’s should agree,
And both like his should Joseph be.
 
8 This seer like Moses should obtain,
The word of God for man again;
A spokesman God would him prepare,
His word when written to declare.
 
9 According to his holy plan,
The Lord has now rais’d up the man,
His latter day work to begin,
To gather scatter’d Israel in.
 
10 This seer shall be esteemed high,
By Joseph’s remnants by and by,
He is the man who’s call’d to raise,
And lead Christ’s church in these last days.
 
11 The keys which Peter did receive,
To rear a kingdom God to please.
Have once more been confer’d on man,
To bring about Jehovah’s plan.
