One little coin doesn’t seem like much

when lying all alone.

But add another and another and another,

and someday when you’re grown,

You’ll find that you have saved enough

to serve a mission for the Lord.

And you’ll be glad that you made sure

it was a goal you could afford.

When you’re young, a mission

seems very far away;

But if you save with that goal in mind,

One day you can say,

“I’m glad that I decided

to work and save and learn

so I could serve and be ready

when it was my turn.”
