    I Hope They Call Me on a Mission

    I hope they call me on a mission
    When I have grown a foot or two.
    I hope by then I will be ready
    To teach and preach and work
    As missionaries do.
    I hope that I can share the gospel
    With those who want to know the truth.
    I want to be a missionary
    And serve and help the Lord
    While I am in my youth.

    (Children’s Songbook, 169)
