Called to Serve... 3rd verse

Those that know James knows that he LOVES to sing!! And by all means that pretty much an understatement. He loves all music and picks up on the lyrics really quickly {everything from Country, to Alternative, to Oldies, to the new stuff, he will even hum the tunes to classical music}. He has learned a song in Primary "Our Father's Family" with the sign language. He has learned many hymns and can now sing in sacrament. This past week during dinner James was singing "Called to Serve" he finished up and asked what the third verse was. I told him that there isn't a third verse. So he decided to do what any other 5 year old would do... he wanted to write a third verse. So after thinking about it for a couple days he came with the words to the third verse of Called to Serve. This is all him!! All I did was help him keep with the beat of the song.

Here it is sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir {so you can hear the tune} and then I wrote James' verse

Called to teach the message of His love,
And the plan he has for all of us.
When we die we all will go to heaven,
And live with him again.
{-James Grammer}

Great things are going to come from this boy. His testimony is so strong and he loves to share it. James you amaze me, thank you for teaching me so much!

Great verse you added to the song James. Boy, this shows you can be anything you want to if you try hard enough. Maybe they will add it to the song?!?!?!?!?!?
Miss you and love you all.

It's amazing the combination of talent and spirituality. My children sometimes add verses to church songs, but they aren't spiritual. High on a mountain top.. A badger chased a squirrel, the badger ate him up, and then there was no squirrel. :-)
