Why did Nephi do the things of the Lord? He explains that his “intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and be saved.”
We must come unto God, which is a very common phrase among the entirety of the scriptures.
This reminds me of the solemn Hymn of Orson Pratt Huish.
Come unto Jesus, ye heavy laden,Careworn and fainting, by sin oppressed.He’ll safely guide you unto that havenWhere all who trust him may rest.
Come unto Jesus; He’ll ever heed you,Though in the darkness you’ve gone astray.His love will find you and gently lead youFrom darkest night into day.
Come unto Jesus; He’ll surely hear you,If you in meekness plead for his love.Oh, know you not that angels are near youFrom brightest mansions above?
4. Come unto Jesus from ev’ry nation,From ev’ry land and isle of the sea.Unto the high and lowly in station,Ever he calls, “Come to me.”
