  1. I’ll make a sacred covenant on my baptismal day.

I’ll promise to remember to follow in His way.

I’ll gladly take upon me the name of Jesus Christ,

And promise to remember his loving sacrifice.


  1.  I’ll follow Christ’s example, be honest, good and true.

By serving others kindly, I’ll do as He would do.

By keeping his commandments, I’ll learn the ways of God,

And stand up as his witness at home and far abroad.


  1. And when I make wrong choices I know I can repent.

The sweet peace of forgiveness, returns then, heaven sent.

Then as I keep my covenant I know I will be blessed.

The Holy Ghost will guide me all through my earthly test.
