My Baptismal Covenant

Friend Magazine, 2015/05 May

I’ll make a sacred covenant

On my baptism day.

I’ll promise Heavenly Father

To follow in His way.*

I’ll gladly take upon me

The name of Jesus Christ

And promise to remember

His loving sacrifice.

I’ll follow Christ’s example,

Be honest, good, and true.

By serving others kindly,

I’ll do as He would do.

By keeping the commandments,

I’ll learn the ways of God

And stand up as His witness

At home and far abroad.

And when I make wrong choices,

I know I can repent.

The sweet peace of forgiveness

Returns then, heaven-sent.

Then as I keep my covenant,

I know I will be blessed.

The Holy Ghost will guide me

All through my earthly test.

  • If you’ve already been baptized, you can change the words: “I made a sacred covenant on my baptism day. I promised Heavenly Father to follow in His way.” And “I gladly took upon me the name of Jesus Christ—and promised to remember His loving sacrifice.”
