Help from the Holy Ghost


I’m learning how to choose the right.
I’ll do my best both day and night.
But when I’m not sure what to do,
The Holy Ghost will help me through.
In math my grade is not the best,
So when I have to take a test,
I sometimes wish that I could look
At Jenny’s work or in my book.
But then I feel the still, small voice,
And I will make the righteous choice.
There are some big boys at my school.
They fool around and act so cool.
They tell me I should say bad words
And join them to throw rocks at birds.
But then I feel the still, small voice,
And I will make the righteous choice.
My buddy Tom has some neat toys,
Like video games made just for boys.
But if the game makes me feel strange,
I’m shy to say, “Let’s make a change.”
But then I feel the still, small voice,
And I will make the righteous choice.
I’m learning how to choose the right.
I’ll do my best both day and night.
But when I’m not sure what to do,
The Holy Ghost will help me through.
