Song background:

Our grandson Bidkar Rosas Jr. requested that we, his grandparents, write him a song for his upcoming baptism similar to the primary song “Follow the Prophet.”  English and Spanish versions of this song were then written.  “I am a Happy Child” was sung for Bidkar’s baptism, and now we share this song for other children to sing and enjoy as well.

Lyrics: Verse 1: <br/>I am a happy child. <br/>Today’s a special day. <br/>For I shall be baptized <br/>And take our Savior’s name. <br/> <br/>The Holy Spirit guides <br/>And will help me every day, <br/>If I remain true to covenants <br/>I make today. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/>Though I am very young, <br/>I know my future’s bright. <br/>From evil I’ll turn away and <br/>Choose to do what’s right. <br/> <br/>My parents I’ll obey <br/>And my love with family share. <br/>With friends who are near and far <br/>The gospel I’ll declare. <br/> <br/>Verse 3: <br/>The Holy Spirit whispers <br/>You’re a child of God. <br/>So I choose to listen <br/>And grasp the iron rod. <br/> <br/>Lord, lead me with thy light <br/>As I walk the path of life. <br/>I want to return to thee <br/>In dignity and faith. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>Heavenly Father <br/>I’m grateful for thy Son. <br/>When I am baptized <br/>My soul shall be white as snow. <br/>I promise thee, Lord that <br/>I shall strive to be <br/>Worthy and faithful <br/>Unto thee. <br/>
