To Be a Missionary

    I want to be ready when a call comes to me

    To share Jesus’ gospel in lands over the sea

    Or perhaps close to home—wherever it may be.

    I will try to be ready by doing what’s right.

    If I live as He taught, then I know that the light

    Of His gospel will guide me by day and by night.

    I want to be able to help others to find

    That Jesus, our Friend, is always loving and kind

    And that He wants us to grow in spirit and mind.

    I hope everyone on earth will share in the plan

    That our Father has given; and when I’m a man,

    I’ll teach all of the world in the best ways I can.
