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.
