    Moro. 10:3–5; D&C 20:8–12

    1. The Book of Mormon teaches me

    That Jesus is the Christ.

    He lived and died for you and me;

    With love He sacrificed.

    It says I must have faith, repent,

    And live the Savior’s word.

    It is another testament

    Of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

    2. The Book of Mormon helps me see

    That truth has been restored,

    That Joseph Smith was called to be

    A prophet of the Lord.

    The book reveals God’s covenant,

    The fulness of His word.

    It is another testament

    Of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

    3. I’ll read the Book of Mormon, then;

    I’ll pray and ponder too.

    I’ll put my faith in Jesus when

    I ask if it is true.

    And when I pray with pure intent,

    I’ll hear the Spirit’s word:

    It is another testament

    Of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
