Words and Music by C. Michael Perry
When Christ appeared to the Nephites (some of His other sheep, mentioned in the Book of John 10:16 — “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.“) shortly after his resurrection in The Holy Land, the Nephites accepted him with full heart because their Prophets had been telling them that He would come and visit them. Their faith in Him was so strong that they created a Zion society in which there were no poor, no downtrodden, because Christ was at the helm.
For 200 years after Christ ascended to Heaven (after visiting even more ‘other sheep,’) this people lived lives of peace and industry, faith and compassion, duty and love. Then Satan sent his messengers, and the society began to crumble until the fairest ones of them all could no longer be called the Children of Christ.
Christ has returned, not yet in His glory, but in the fullness of His doctrine. Our generations, this present generation and each generation to come, are now the “Fair Ones.”
Based on the scripture in the Book of Mormon: Mormon 6:8-22
