Meter: 10 10 10 10 10 10
Topic: the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel, faith, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost

1.
The first step is our faith on God’s own Son,
Faith that He the greatest victory won,
Faith that He can make all mountains to move
Faith that He can help us to improve.

These principles and ordinances four
Lead to the gate and then unlock the door.

2.
The second step is repenting of sins
and committing to a change from within.
Building on the faith that Christ can us forgive
Raising our gaze that we might look and live.

These principles and ordinances four
Lead to the gate and then unlock the door.

3.
The third step is being born of water
And so becoming Christ’s son or daughter.
Pledging always our Savior’s work to do,
Burying the past, taking life anew.

These principles and ordinances four
Lead to the gate and then unlock the door.

4.
The fourth step is taking the Spirit’s fire,
Cleansing our vessels, refining desire.
Inviting the companionship divine
Of the Holy Ghost, who can refine.

These principles and ordinances four
Lead to the gate and then unlock the door.
