"There is a Balm in Gilead" by Unknown

Quoted By: Boyd K. Packer, "The Balm of Gilead," October 1977

"The lyrics of a song record:

There is a Balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole,
There is a Balm in Gilead,
To heal the sin sick soul."

"To a Child" by Ora Pate Stewart

Quoted By: H. Burke Peterson, "Mother, Catch the Vision of Your Call," April 1974

"As in the song 'To a Child,' children are not a gift to us, but a precious loan, a priceless loan to be returned—returned more valuable than when we received them, understanding more, better prepared to return to him who lent them to us."

"Try to Remember" by Tom Jones

Quoted By: Dallin H. Oaks, "Always Remember Him," April 1988

"The effect was described in the words of the once popular song, 'Try to remember, and if you remember, then follow.'”

"Turn Around" by Malvina Reynolds

Quoted By: Dwan J. Young, "An Invitation to Grow," April 1982

"'Turn around,' as the song says, 'and they’re three. Turn around, and they’re four. Turn around, and they’re a young man or woman going out of the door.'"
