Lyrics: Verse 1: <br/>As a little child I often see <br/>My parents faithfully <br/>Attend the holy temple. <br/>With such felicity. <br/> <br/>They teach me how important <br/>That together family be, <br/>Not only for this life alone, <br/>But all eternity. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/>Their counsel I do often hear, <br/>Begin now and prepare, <br/>Be faithful and obedient <br/>That in God’s house you’ll serve. <br/> <br/>And one day you’ll return again <br/>Into His house of love, <br/>And enter into cov’nants grand <br/>With Father up above. <br/> <br/>Verse 3: <br/>From what my parents teach me well <br/>And by example show, <br/>Within my mind I yearn for when <br/>Into God’s house I’ll go. <br/> <br/>I dream of when on that great day <br/>With joy exceeding great, <br/>Arrive I will and enter in <br/>To serve the Lord in faith. <br/> <br/>Verse 4: <br/>How wonderful indeed that day <br/>When finally it comes. <br/>My dream at last shall be fulfilled! <br/>With joy I’ll serve the Lord. <br/> <br/>For souls I know have waited long <br/>From prison to be freed, <br/>Awaiting light and guidance <br/>To progress eternally. <br/>
