Brigham’s vision – June 28

6.28.2015

streets wide enough

for teams of oxen

to turn

 

streets wide enough

for legions

of followers

to learn

 

streets wide enough

for the pavings of heaven

for roadways of jasper,

carnelian and gold

 

streets for the prayings

of a new

revelation

 

streets wide and

wider

for the blessing

of all.

—————

(Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, 1847)
