Mountain of the Lord’s House

If God stretched forth His hand 
to touch the earth,  
the mountain’s snowy summit 
would gleam like golden trumpets.
If He walked upon His footstool, 
the pinnacles of this place 
would resound with the lightning 
of His presence. 
Solid granite would split apart 
like a broken heart and fountains would
flow down through alpine meadows
to water desert flowers.
If here He spoke to man 
the wind of His voice 
like soaring eagle wings would 
encircle His people with power. 
Together they would proclaim, 
This is His House!
And that all people who shall enter upon the threshold 
of the Lord’s house may feel thy power, and feel constrained to acknowledge that thou hast sanctified 
it, and that it is thy house, a place of thy holiness. 
(D & C 109:13)
