The Holy Ghost

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


Simply

1. When Christ was on the earth,

He promised he would send

The Holy Ghost to comfort us,

Our true, eternal friend.

The Holy Spirit whispers

With a still small voice.

He testifies of God and Christ

And makes our hearts rejoice.

2. And when we are confirmed

By sacred priesthood pow’r,

The Holy Ghost is giv’n to us

To guide us ev’ry hour.

Oh, may I always listen

To that still small voice.

And with his light I’ll do what’s right

Each time I make a choice.
