Abstract
I give you my witness,
I give you my honor.
Go fight your battles
With God’s whole armor.
 
A father, battle worn
Who walks the path to Christ.
Liberated from
Tradition and saved
From his sins.
A hardened heart changed,
A stained sword buried,
A covenant made.
His Integrity
Now tried.
 
A mother, full of faith
Who taught her children 
To be courageous,
To doubt not and 
Humbly pray.
The mother who knows
Stands with the father
As one, aiding him,
Encouraging him,
Loving him.
 
A tender, stripling son
Following in righteous
Footsteps, standing firm
On the rock of his
Salvation.
His obedience,
Strict with exactness
Proves him worthy to
Obtain miracles
From on high.
 
A righteous leader
Who serves with Priesthood
Power and wisdom,
Wielding the sword of
The spirit,
Carries a mantle
Given from above
To guide and to judge,
All in the name of
Jesus Christ.
 
I give you my witness,
I give you my honor.
Go fight your battles
With God’s whole armor.
