  1. Though a boy I may appear,
    Yet a man I soon will be.
    If I prepare and live clean in ev'ry thought, word, and deed,
    I will be worthy to hold the sacred priesthood of God.
    So I now prepare myself; I will serve my fellowmen.
    Being armed with the truth, with the scriptures my guide,
    I'll go forward, a young man prepared,
    I'll go forward, a young man prepared.
  2. Words and music: Daniel Lyman Carter, b. 1955. (c) 1981 IRI
