Note: This Family Proclamation music follows the original text verbatim, except:

  • several phrases are repeated for emphasis (see highlighted text file, above); and 
  • the words "the First Presidency and the Quorum of Twelve Apostles of the Church fo Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" are deleted in paragraph 1, as singers of this music will most likely never possess apostolic authority.  Deleting these words in the music allows singers to genuinely share their own testimonies, mingled together with those apostolic witnesses who originally wrote these inspired words.
