Blessing for William Smith, 28 September 1835

shall be opened, the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped, the tongue of the dumb shall be made to speak, and the lame man shall leap as a heart [hart]; and his adversaries shall not have power to withstand his words. Hell shall tremble because of him and satan shall flee from before his face; and he shall be as a roaring lion of the forest, in the midst of his pray— so shall his hand be in the midst of his enemies, among those who know not the Lord, but seek the injury of the righteous: and the hand of his generation shall be lifted up also against those who are set on high, that fight the God of Israel: fearless and undaunted shall they be in battle, in avenging the wrongs of the innocent and relieving the oppressed. Therefore, the blessings of the God of Jacob shall be upon him to the uttermost, and in the midst of his house, from generation to generation, forever; and he shall be lifted up at the last day and shall come up before the Lord like as a full shock of corn, laden with his tens of thousands, as a reward of his labors, with songs of everlasting joy, with hozannahs upon his lips, to God and to the Lamb, to go no more out. Amen.
