I’ve always been fascinated by that first step that Joseph Smith took to enter to Sacred Grove. That one step changed everything.

An innocent youth, an unlearned boy
Seeking wisdom from on high
A course of life forever changed
With one step in the grove
 
A boy’s first prayer was uttered there
The seeds of faith were sown
God descended his mighty throne
With one step in the grove
 
A calling issued, a mantle given
The gospel to restore
A loving Father revealed his hand
With one step in the grove
 
A dispensation now rolled forth
Glorious truths to be revealed
Cumorah’s Hill would soon be known
With one step in the grove
 
With wondering awe and gratitude
All thanks and praises be
To the man who communed with Jehovah
With one step in the grove
 
His name be had for good and ill
Prophet Joseph the world would know
He sealed his fate to a martyr’s end
With one step in the grove
