Impressions On The Mormon Trail

Did you see those firm impressions
From the wheels that cut the sod;
Made by mortals pulling handcarts
Pushed by angels sent by God?

Did your hand trace those impressions
Where they carved their names in stone;
On a rock called Independence
That their story might be known?

Did you pause at those impressions
Still remaining from their graves;
Knowing tears have freely watered
Where the summer grass now waves?

Have you wondered which impression
Honors best these heroes, true?
Something tells me they would answer
“The impression made on you.”

When that solemn Spirit whispers
And confirms within your breast;
Like these valiant sons and daughters,
That you, too, can meet the test;

When you act on obligation
To these faithful gone before;
The impressions that most matter
Will be yours forevermore.
