I Walk By Faith


I remember singing this song with my Young Women's group as a youth. The words and music are so beautiful and really speak to me even still. I thought I share the words with you today:

I will prepare to make and keep sacred covenants,
Seek promised blessings of the priesthood through obedience,
Live my life to claim the blessing sweet of exaltation,
My testimony growing each new day.
I walk by faith, a daughter of heavenly parents.
Divine am I in nature by inheritance,
The spirit whispers of my mission, my individual worth,
So I seek for precious knowledge, for learning and for growth.
I understand the meaning of accountability;
Every choice for good and ill is my responsibility.
I want to build the kingdom and good works is the key.
By doing what I know is right I show integrity.
I cherish virtue and moral purity.
I walk by faith, a daughter of heavenly parents.
Divine am I in nature by inheritance,
And someday when God has proven me,
I'll see Him face to face.
But just for here and now I walk by faith.
Yes just for here and now I walk by faith.

That's one of my favorite songs by Janice Kapp Perry. While reading the words the music filled my head & reminded me of the values I grew up with and hope to instill in my own children.

I was blessed enough to be one of the few priesthood leaders in the recent Young Women Camp in our stake this year, and that's where I first heard this song. It's really beautiful. I'm not even a "woman" but when I listen to it, I get teary-eyed. The lyrics are so true and really uplifting.
