[Patriarchal Blessing of Lucy M. Smith]
...Thou art ... a lawful heir to the priesthood which was sealed upon the head of Ephraim. ... The number of thy years shall be according to thy faith, even to behold all the glory and beauty of Zion, see the coming of the Saviour, the gathering of Israel, and if you desire it with your whole heart, shall not taste of death, but shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye and caught up to meet the Lord. Now dear sister be comforted, endure in faith to the end, and not one word which has been spoken shall fail.
