"I'm a Missionary" is a song which inspires both boys and girls to prepare for being a missionary. The song can be sung alternating between boys singing a verse and then girls singing a verse. It is written for a fun, friendly competition. It may also be sung in rounds. "I'm a Missionary" identifies the unique time frames during which young men and young women are called to serve on missions. Love of missionary work is best-taught to children and this short, fun, happy song promotes missionary service.
Lyrics: 1. (BOYS) I'm a missionary boy, spreading truth along my way. And, I want to share the gospel light and serve the Lord each day.
2. (GIRLS) I'm a missionary girl, spreading truth along my way. And, I want to share the gospel light and serve the Lord each day.
3. (BOYS) When I turn 18 years old, I will answer to the call. And, leave friends and home and family and give the Lord my all.
4. (GIRLS) When I turn 19 years old, I will answer to the call. And, leave friends and home and family and give the Lord my all.
