Shall we get lost everywhere we go?
When we have gifts that can navigate?
We have assistance that we can know
The right course t’wards the celestial gate
gift one- free agency schooled with the Light of Christ for conscience:
We’ve ability and power to choose
As a part of our earthly descent
And towards good, our Father behooves
Through invitation and enticement
We’ve a natural capacity
To distinguish between right and wrong
And just like any other faculty
The more it’s used well, it grows strong
And as we’re ever linked to Christ
We speak through Him to our Father
Such that we’re given light to our eyes
And can find a gift like no other
gift two- the Gift of the Holy Ghost
Those who become sensitive to choice
Do receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost
For therein is safety to rejoice
As we’ve the guidance from a heavenly host
There we feel God’s warm reception
And directions for where to look
There to be saved from deception
And find words of love in His book
gift three- the capacity to believe the words of those who testify of Jesus Christ
The writ of prophets through the ages
Are from God that His plan might be known
The sole purpose of what’s on the pages
Is so we’ll not get lost on our way home
gift four- the gift of eternal love
To that place which is in Heaven above
Where there is brightness and glorious peace
Where one is gifted with eternal love
And placed on a path that does ever increase
