"I Want to Be Baptized" is a song for children that teaches about baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring
to the end.

Text: Toni Thomas   Music: Brandon Stewart

Verse One

Why do I want to be baptized?

I want to be like Jesus.

I’m prepared; I will serve and share,

And stand for Him a witness.

Buried in the water clear

As Jesus long ago;

I, like Him, am born again

And come unto God’s fold.


Verse Two

God will send me a special friend,

To help and guide me always.

He’ll remind, teach me to be kind,

And give me peace and courage.

Hands are laid upon my head;

I feel the Spirit grow.

Through the priesthood power, I

Receive the Holy Ghost!


Verse Three

I will find as I keep in mind

The covenant I promised,

I belong, and I can be strong,

Be faithful, true, and honest.

This is Heav’nly Father’s plan

To save us every one!

When we've endured unto the end

He'll say, “My child, well done.”
