My Baptismal Covenant
Music By: Michael Smurthwaite
Lyrics By: Tamara S. Larson
Voices: Primary children or youth
Description: Emphasizes the baptismal covenant to keep the commandments and the
promised blessings of forgiveness, peace and guidance of the Spirit.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
