Lyrics: On this day I will step into waters and pray in my heart as I take upon me His Holy name. I will always remember Him My Savior Jesus Christ: promise to keep commandments given me from God, and love Him faithfully. With my heart and might, mind and strength I offer this to covenant with Thee. <br/>I have learned of His love, for He said, "Come to me." He has given His life for me and shows me the way to a life with joy, eternal hope. What greater gift could I know? Then in a blessing sweet He sends a Comforter to guide me tenderly. With my heart and might, mind and strength I offer this to covenant with Thee. <br/> <br/>He lives! He is real! My Savior and friend! And I feel in my soul I am never alone. He will love me, protect me and be my light in truth. Always and ever for eternity He shares His love with me and you. With my heart and might, mind and strength I offer this to covenant with Thee.
