This hymn was written by a thirty-seven-year-old homemaker from Brooklyn.

Books such as the Psalms, Isaiah, and Deuteronomy, that the Lehites would likely have had access to on the plates of brass, use similar language. https://knowhy.bookofmormoncentral.org/content/why-did-helaman-compare-christ-to-a-rock #Rock #Christ #Bible #Redeemer #Mormon
I love antique books, but not all antique books are equal. Generally, I look for books that have unique covers and illustrations or pretty text.
