Search, Ponder, and Pray

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


With feeling

1. I love to read the holy scriptures,

And, ev’ry time I do,

I feel the Spirit start to grow within my heart-

A testimony that they’re true.

[Chorus]

Search, ponder, and pray

Are the things that I must do.

The Spirit will guide, and, deep inside,

I’ll know the scriptures are true.

2. So, prayerfully I’ll read the scriptures

Each day my whole life through.

I’ll come to understand.

I’ll heed the Lord’s command

And live as he would have me do.

[Chorus]

Search, ponder, and pray

Are the things that I must do.

The Spirit will guide, and, deep inside,

I’ll know the scriptures are true.
