I Hope They Call Me on a Mission
“I Hope They Call Me on a Mission,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 169
1. I hope they call me on a mission
When I have grown a foot or two.
I hope by then I will be ready
To teach and preach and work as missionaries do.
2. I hope that I can share the gospel
With those who want to know the truth.
I want to be a missionary
And serve and help the Lord while I am in my youth.
The accompaniment may be played as a duet. The melody could be played in octaves, and the bass could be divided for two hands.
