Hymns by Eliza R. Snow—such as "O My Father," "Behold the Great Redeemer Die," and "How Great the Wisdom and the Love"—evoke powerful religious imagery. In her hymns and in her hundreds of other poems, Snow captured nineteenth-century Mormonism, where revelation and history intersected and Latter-day Saints labored for the meeting of heaven and earth they named Zion. Snow's poems convey many sublime truths about the human condition.

As Zion's honored spokeswoman, no public event in the Mormon community from the 1840s to the 1880s was complete without a contribution from her. "Through [Snow's poems] the names of many of the actors in the drama of Mormonism, will be handed down to posterity," wrote Emmeline B. Wells.

Intelligent, well-read, and articulate, Snow also had an understanding of the scriptures. Through her position in the inner circles of church leadership, her poetry, and her gifts as a spokeswoman, she became one of the most influential and best-known women in Mormon history.

As a result, this collection is as much biographical, historical, and theological as literary.
