A Young Man Prepared


A Young Man Prepared


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.
