INTRODUCE PRESIDENT EZRA TAFT
BENSON, PRESIDENT OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS
CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS.■■ MY BELOVED■BROTHERS AND SISTERS■ ■ MY BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS■ I AM DELIGHTED TO JOIN
WITH YOU TONIGHT TO CELEBRATE THE SIGNING OF THE
UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. THIS MAGNIFICENT DOCUMENT HAS
BEEN IN EXISTENC■■LONGER THAN
ANY WRITTEN CONSTITUTION IN
HISTORY.■■■■ IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING,■■■■■■■■■ NOT ONLY TO OUR LAND, BUT TO THE
WORLD AS WELL. MANY NATIONS HAVE WISELY■■
ADOPTED CONCEPTS AND PROVISIONS OF OUR
CONS■ITUTION, JUST AS WAS PROPHESIED. AS LATTER-DAY SAINTS,■■■ WE SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THE HAND
OF THE LORD IN THE WRITING OF
THIS GREAT CHARTER OF LIBERTY.■■ AND IN THE FOUNDING AND
DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NATION.■■■■■■ THE LORD SAID, “AND FOR THIS PURPOSE HAVE I
ESTABLISHED THE CONSTITUTION OF
THIS LAND, BY THE HANDS OF WISE MEN
WHOM I R■■SED UP UNTO THIS
VERY PURPOSE, AND REDEEMED THE LAND BY THE
SHEDDING OF BLOOD.”■■■■■■■■■ THE ■■STORATION OF THE GOSPEL
AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE
LORD’S CHURCH,■■■ COULD NOT HAPPEN UNTIL THE
FOUNDING FATHERS WERE RAISED UP■ AND COMPLETED THEIR
FOREORDAINED MISSIONS.■■ THOSE GREAT SOULS, WHO WERE
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FR■■DOMS
WE ENJOY, RECOGNIZED THE GUIDING
HAND OF PROVIDENCE. FOR THEIR EFFORTS
WE ARE INDEBTED,■■ BUT WE ARE EVEN MORE I■■EBTED TO
OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN AND TO HIS
SON, JESUS CHRIST.■■■■■■■■ HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE TO LIVE
WHEN■■HE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY■■■ AND THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ARE BOTH AVAILABLE TO US.■■ HOW APPROPRIATE FOR US
TO BE HERE TONIGHT HONORING
THES■■BLESSINGS.■■ WE SHOULD NOT FORGET THE GREAT
SACRIFICES MADE■■■■■■ BY THOSE WHO FOUND, COLONIZED,
AND SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR
THE FREEDOMS WE NOW ENJOY.■■ THE PRICE WE MUST PAY FOR THESE
WONDERFUL BLESSINGS■■■■ IS ETERNAL VIGILANCE AND
PERSONAL RIGHTEOUSNESS.■■■ WHERE MUCH IS RECEIVED,
MUCH IS REQUIRED,■■■■ AND NO PEOPLE HAVE BEEN THE
RECIPIENTS OF MORE BLESSINGS THAN THIS PEOPLE AND THIS [email protected] WE MUST REPAY THE DEBT WE OWE TO
HEAVENLY FATHER AND OUR
FO■■FATHERS■■■■ BY PRESERVING THESE BLESSINGS. LET US RESOLVE TO CONTINUOUSLY
READ AND STUDY THE SCRIPTURES,■■ THE CONSTITU■ION AND OTHER VITAL
WORKS THAT HELP US TO APPRECIATE
THESE BLESSINGS.■■■■■■■ WE MUST EACH OUR CHILDREN AND
THEIR CHILDREN LOVE OF THIS
PRECIOUS HERITAGE OF FREEDOM■■■■ AND TO BE COMMITTED TO THE
RIGHTEOUS PRINCIPLES NEC■&SARY
TO MAINTAIN IT.■■ AS JEFFERSON SAID,■■■■ “IF A NATION EXPECTS TO BE
IGNORANT AND FREE… IT EXPECTS WHAT NEVER WAS AND
NEVER WILL BE.”■■■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■ ■■ OUR FATHER’S ETERNAL PURPOSES
CANNOT BE FULL ACHIEVED WITHOUT
A RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE AND ■■E LIBERTY THAT ALLOW THOSE
PEOPLE TO EXERCISE THEIR FREE
AGENCY. PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS SAID, “WE HAVE NO GOVERNMENT ARMED
WITH POWER CAPABLE OF CONTENDING
WITH HUMAN PASSIONS, UNBRIDLED BY MORALITY
AND RELIGION.”■■ LET US RESOLVE TO BE S
EXEMPLARY SAINTS AND GOOD
CITIZENS,■■■■ AND TO REAR OUR YOUTH SO THAT
THEY WILL, IN THEIR DAY, COURAGEOUSLY CARRY AND PASS ON
THE TORCH OF LIBERTY TO THE NEXT
GENERATION. LET US SEEK AND SUSTAIN HONEST,
WISE AND GOOD LEADERS WHO WILL
SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION “IN THE TRADITION OF THE
FOUNDING FATHERS.”■■■■■■ LET US■■ROMOTE AND PRESERVE
CONSTITUTIONAL P■■NCIPLES. WITH PRES. DAVID O MC KAY,
I SAY THAT,■■ “NEXT TO BEING ONE IN
WORSHIPPING GOD, THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD
UPON WHICH THE CHURCH SHOULD BE
MORE UNI■■D THAT■■ IN UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION OF
THE UNITED STATES.” CLEARLY, THIS PLACES A SERIOUS
RESPONSIBILITY ON EACH OF US,■■ NOT ONLY TO LIVE
AND TEACH THE GOSPEL BUT ALSO TO UNDERSTAND AND
DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION. THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH
TAUGHT THAT “HAPPINESS IS THE OBJECT AND
DESIGN OF OUR EXISTENCE.” THE DELEGATES TO THE
CONSTITUTION■■ CONVENTION MET IN
PHILADELPHIA 200 YEARS AGO FOR.■ AMONG OTHER THINGS, “THE PURSUIT
OF HAPPINESS” FOR THEMSELVES■■ AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.■■■■■ WHEN THE CONSTITUTION
WAS WRITTEN,■■■■■■■■ THEY REJOICED IN THEIR
ACCOMPLISHMENT. WE KNOW THAT THE LORD INSPIRED
THESE MEN IN THEIR WORK. AS CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT
NATION, WE SHOULD REJOICE AND AT THE SAME TIME REALIZE OUR
RESPONSIBILITY FOR PRESERVING IT FEW OCCASIONS IN LIFE HOLD AS
MUCH SIGNIFICANCE AS THIS MOMENTOUS ANNIVERSARY
AND PROVIDE GREATER REASON FOR
CELEBRATION. I LOVE THIS CHOICE LAND
AND THE CONSTITUTION! TO ME THE CONSTITUTION IS
INSPIRED AND SACRED. I THANK MY FATHER IN HEAVEN THAT
I HAVE LIVED TO SEE THIS
GLORIOUS DAY,■■■■■■ AND PRAY OUR P■■■■RITY WILL
ALWAYS LIVE UNDER ITS BANNER.■■ ■■Y WE BE WORTHY OF TH■■FREEDOMS
THAT HAVE BEEN PROVIDED US IN
OUR CONSTITUTION AND EQUAL TO THE TRIALS AND
TESTS THAT SHALL SURELY COME.■ WE TRULY HAVE SPECIAL AND
INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITIES TO BEFRIEND AND TO DEFEND TAT
GLORIOUS STANDARD, OUR CONSTITUTION. I BEAR WITNESS THAT OUR HEAVENLY
FATHER RAISED UP THE MEN WHO
FOUNDED THIS GOVERNMENT, THEREBY FULFILLING THE
PROPHECY OF HIS BELOVED SON■■ THAT THE PEOPLE, SHOULD BE
ESTABLISHED IN THIS LAND■■ AND BE SET UP AS A FREE PEOPLE
BY THE POWER OF THE FATHER.”■■■■ IN THE NAME OF
