Baptism

I just arrived home from a convert baptism.

Paul and I helped with the music.

It was so joyful to join with the missionaries and members of our ward to witness the baptism of this new member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The spirit was strong as we sang the hymn Come Follow Me.

Lyrics

1. “Come, follow me,” the Savior said.
Then let us in his footsteps tread,
For thus alone can we be one
With God’s own loved, begotten Son.

2. “Come, follow me,” a simple phrase,
Yet truth’s sublime, effulgent rays
Are in these simple words combined
To urge, inspire the human mind.

3. Is it enough alone to know
That we must follow him below,
While trav’ling thru this vale of tears?
No, this extends to holier spheres.

4. Not only shall we emulate
His course while in this earthly state,
But when we’re freed from present cares,
If with our Lord we would be heirs.

5. We must the onward path pursue
As wider fields expand to view,
And follow him unceasingly,
Whate’er our lot or sphere may be.

6. For thrones, dominions, kingdoms, pow’rs,
And glory great and bliss are ours,
If we, throughout eternity,
Obey his words, “Come, follow me.”

Text: John Nicholson, 1839-1909

I look forward to the Sabbath this Sunday when he will be given The Gift of the Holy Ghost.

These sacred ordinances are the most joyful part of being a Mormon. I love watching new friends develop their Faith in Jesus Christ.

Every single time I have observed mighty miracles and blessings.
