Joseph knelt while in his youth 
And prayed to the Lord to know the truth. 
I will sincerely pray as Joseph did. 
He prayerfully translated plates of gold. 
He did the work that he was told. 
I will serve the Lord as Joseph did. 
Joseph received the priesthood dear. 
He taught the gospel without fear. 
I will defend the Church as Joseph did. 
Joseph was martyred in Carthage Jail, 
But in his mission he did not fail. 
I will obey God’s will as Joseph did. 
And in these latter days of choices, 
I will listen to the prophets’ voices. 
I will return with honor as Joseph did.
