🔹 "Invictus" is a powerful poem that helped sustain Nelson Mandela through his many trials
The final stanza reads, "It matters not how straight the gate, / How charged with punishments the scroll, / I am the master of my fate, / I am the captain of my soul."
🔹 "The Soul's Captain" is another powerful poem written by Elder Orson F. Whitney in response to "Invictus"
The first two stanzas read, "Art thou in truth? Then what of Him / Who bought thee with His blood? / Who plunged into devouring seas / And snatched thee from the flood, // Who bore for all our fallen race / What none but Him could bear— / The God who died that man might live / And endless glory share."
🔹 Quote from President Gordon B. Hinckley
"When all is said and done, when all the legions of the ages have passed in review, when man’s terrible inhumanity to man has been chronicled, when God’s great love for His children has been measured, then above all stands the lone figure of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the world, the Savior of mankind, the living Son of the living God, the Prince of Peace, the Holy One."
