My Baptism Covenant
My sister had been after me to write a new baptism song for years. She recently challenged me to get busy and make good with this project. Since she obviously had particular ideas, I asked her to get me started with words and concepts for the song. We were out to lunch with friends and she immediately whipped out her phone, wrote out a few lines and emailed them to me. Five minutes! That is all it took her to come up with these words. She has been in charge of Stake Baptisms for children for many years. She has often thought that we needed a song about keeping the baptism covenant.
I made my first covenant today
I choose to live the Savior's way
My heavenly brother I will serve
His blessings I will try to deserve
The Hioly Ghost is my constant guide
I will feel his warmth daily by my side
I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ
I love my Savior Jesus Christ
So, using these concepts as a starting point, I went home and wrote her a new song.
