[Patriarchal Blessing]
Willard Richards. (Given by Joseph Smith, Sen.)

... God will cause the earth to tremble for thy good. ... The nations of the Earth shall greatly fear thee, for thou shalt be a terror unto them, for their wicked deeds shall be made manifest to them, through thy organ.

Thou shalt have great possessions, for the treasures of the earth shall be at thy command. ... No one shall have power to harm thee or thy posterity, if thou will put thy trust in God. Death shall have no power over thee, for thou shalt tarry and behold thy Redeemer coming in the clouds, and shall see him in the flesh ...
