“The Gift of the Holy Ghost,” Friend, Aug. 2005, 24–25

The Gift of the Holy Ghost

I have a great gift from my Father above.

This gift helps me know of His mercy and love.

I feel of its warmth when I ponder and pray.

It lightens my path as I seek to obey.

And when I was baptized a blessing was said

By strong priesthood holders with hands on my head.

The gift of the Holy Ghost, given to me,

Will help me be faithful, God’s servant to be.

So when I have choices or answers to find,

The still, quiet voice fills my heart and my mind.

And when I am frightened or sad or in need,

Then I can feel peace when its whisp’rings I heed.

The Holy Ghost can be with me each day, to comfort me, bless me, and show me the way.

He teaches me of the things that are true

And prompts me to know of the good I should do.
