I am an individual--and I have great worth
I knew that long before I came to this earth.
My dear Father told me, "I'm counting on you
to go down to earth and see what you can do.
Follow the Savior and live by His word
Make sure His teachings are so often heard.
Love all your neighbors as I have loved you
See how much service and good you can do.
Study the scriptures and learn how to pray
Live my commandments each and every day.
Care for the sick and don't forget the poor
Welcome the needy who come to your door.
Set the example of one who knows God
Never let go of the iron rod.
When you are tired and have shown me your worth
I'll then bring you home in a Heavenly Birth."
