    Keep the Commandments

    Gently

    (Optional obbligato for flute or soprano voice*)

    1. Keep the commandments; keep the commandments!

    In this there is safety; in this there is peace.

    He will send blessings;

    He will send blessings.

    Words of a prophet:

    Keep the commandments.

    In this there is safety and peace.

    2. We are His children; we are His children,

    and we must be tested to show we are true.

    Hold to His promises;

    Hold to His promises,

    Heeding the prophets:

    Keep the commandments.

    In this there is safety and peace.

    * The obbligato also works well with the version of this song printed in Hymns, no. 303.
