Lorenzo Snow Couplet

Lorenzo Snow Couplet. Lorenzo Snow, the fifth president and prophet of the mainstream sect of Mormonism, is famous both in and outside of Mormonism for his couplet: “As man is God once was, as God is man may be.” This short couplet summarizes the traditional understanding of what Joseph Smith taught in the “Sermon in the Grove” and, most famously, in the “King Follett Discourse.”
