  1. 1. I like my birthdays, ev’ry one;
    Each brings a greater joy to me.
    But I can’t wait until I’m eight,
    For then I’ll be baptized, you see.
  2. 2. To be baptized as Jesus was
    By one who holds the priesthood true
    And thus obey God’s holy laws
    Is just the thing I want to do.
  3. 3. When hands are laid upon my head,
    Then I’ll receive the Holy Ghost.
    And, if I listen carefully,
    I’ll have the blessing I need most.
  4. Words: Wallace F. Bennett, 1898–1993
    Music: Tracy Y. Cannon, 1879–1961
