We have memorized the rest of The Living Christ. It is a powerful testimony of the life and purpose of our Savior. I am going to type it up to solidify the memorization. Thanks to Jeslyn and Nicole for helping in this meaningful process.
“Of the Living Christ, the Prophet Joseph wrote: ‘His eyes were as a flame of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun; and his voice was as the sound of the rushing of great waters, even the voice of Jehovah, saying:
‘I am the first and the last; I am he who liveth; I am he who was slain: I am your advocate with the Father’ (D & C 110-3-4).
Of Him the Prophet also declared: ‘And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of Him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him:That he lives!
For we saw Him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father—
That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God’(D & C 76:22-24).
We declare in words of solemnity that His priesthood and His church have been restored upon the earth —’built upon the foundation of…..apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone’(Ephesians 2:20).
We testify that He will someday return to earth. ‘And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together’ (Isaiah 40:5). He will rule as King of Kings and reign as Lord of Lords, and every knee shall bend and every tongue shall speak in worship before Him. Each of us will stand to be judged of Him according to our works and the desires of our hearts.
We bear testimony, as His duly ordained Apostles — that Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son.

I had a bunch of punctuation and capitalization errors to fix. And a couple of words. But I almost have it word perfect. Nicole and I are going to try and pass it off with Jeslyn Monday night. Jeslyn passed it off to us tonight.
