I Am A Child of God (as re-written by Paul Sutorius, LDS Seminary instructor in Nephi, Utah)

I am a child of God,
But that's but half the view.
If I don't put off the natural man,
I'm sunk and so are you.

Lead me, guide me, reconcile me.
Help me be born once more.
If I don't overcome the fall,
He'll slam the celestial door.

I am a child of God,
But that doesn't make me great.
I'm carnal, sensual, devilish, too,
In a lost and fallen state.

Save me, change me, please exchange me
With grace from up above.
If I offer up a broken heart,
I can sing redeeming love.

I am a child of God
Great blessings I await,
If I submit my will to his
And enter in the narrow gate.

Lead me, guide me, justify me
Cleanse and make me pure.
Fill me with the Savior's love,
Or I know I won't endure.

(Or, I'll be in deep manure! Just kidding, but figuratively true!)
