The sacred ordinance of baptism, is a witness to my Father above,
That I will follow my Savior and
minister with love.
Immersed in the water I am raised a disciple of God;
A sacred covenant I have made to hold to the iron rod!
promise to live as His servant and help my fellow man,
To teach and spread the gospel, to give all that I can.
Obedience is my watch word, for it binds me to my God,
heart is ever mindful to keep my feet gospel shod.
I will follow the word of wisdom, that my body may be clean,
will honor the law of the tithe that His blessings I may bring.
My hands will seek to lift others who stand in need,
That loyalty to my God may be shown through word and deed.
I will seek that which is praiseworthy and of good report,
That I may have His spirit and qualify for His work.
I am not
my own for my Savior has claim on me,
I will keep my baptismal promise, and His faithful servant be.
The Holy Ghost will guide me as I journey through
A constant true companion that will lead me far from strife.
This member of the God head will comfort me when I’m sad,
He will inspire and
guide me daily and make my heart feel glad!
As a member of God’s kingdom I am entitled to this constant gift,
That between me and my Savior
there need never be a rift.
As I honor the commandments and live each day with care,
The spirit will live within me as I minister and share.
Through the Holy Ghost I am tied to the Father and Son,
My daily struggle against evil, through the spirit can be won!
Forever I am changed by the choice to join
I stand His friend and disciple, I will seek His light to bring.
My journey will not be easy, but my purpose is
A member of God’s kingdom, I have His work to do!
I am not my own, for I have taken my Savior’s name,
A child of His
kingdom, on me He has a claim.
