    As I Take the Sacrament

    As I Take the Sacrament

    S is for the Savior, who died for you and me.

    A is for Atonement, begun in Gethsemane.

    C is for the cross that the Savior bore for us.

    R is for repentance—God’s forgiveness we can trust.

    A is always walking with His Spirit as our guide.

    M is for His mercy—since He cared, for us He died.

    E is for eternal life, our gift when we obey.

    N is for His name that we take on us each day.

    T is for a testimony—we partake and come to know

    That Christ is our Redeemer, and our love for Him we show.

    As I take the sacrament and recall His sacrifice,

    I’ll pledge myself to follow Him and always choose the right.
