Keep the Commandments

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Gently

(Optional obbligato for flute or soprano voice*)

1. Keep the commandments; keep the commandments!

In this there is safety; in this there is peace.

He will send blessings;

He will send blessings.

Words of a prophet:

Keep the commandments.

In this there is safety and peace.

2. We are His children; we are His children,

and we must be tested to show we are true.

Hold to His promises;

Hold to His promises,

Heeding the prophets:

Keep the commandments.

In this there is safety and peace.

* The obbligato also works well with the version of this song printed in Hymns, no. 303.
