Consistent, prayerful watchcare
Shows one is more than benevolent;
For the charity that we share-
Is an effect of the Lord’s Atonement!

When we do our visiting teaching
It is a blessed opportunity;
To set faith forward… reaching-
Warmed by the Spirit, with charity.

Dear Sister, We have said a prayer
To know just what you need.
We brought a lesson to share
And we ask the spirit to lead.

For… divine inspiration
Comes from our Father on high.
He needs no explanation-
He rules the Earth, Sun, Moon, and sky!

Purity- from: (http://lds.org/scriptures/gs/pure-purity?lang=eng)

Be purified even as Christ is pure, Moro. 7:48 (Morm. 9:6).

And cannot please the Lord
When we turn our hearts from nations
Or people that are poor

And help those in need
Giving thanks, humbly
For all we have, indeed
