Scriptural References:

Psalm 82:6 ...
6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

Mosiah 4:15 ...
15 But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one another, and to serve one another.

Doctrine and Covenants 14:7 ...
7 And, if you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all gifts of God.

Special Note: The 4th verse is for all our LGBT friends. It is not a part of what's in the LDS Hymnal, but was written by a friend of mine, Vaughn Curtis Larsen, and it's definitely not sanctioned by the LDS Church.

Introduction (full verse) & 4 verses:

Verse 1:
I am a child of God,
And he has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home
With parents kind and dear.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
Help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do
To live with him someday.

Verse 2:
I am a child of God,
And so my needs are great;
Help me to understand his words
Before it grows too late.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
Help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do
To live with him someday.

Verse 3:
I am a child of God.
Rich blessings are in store;
If I but learn to do his will
I'll live with him once more.
Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
Help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do
To live with him someday.

Verse 4:
I, too, am a Child of God
No matter what "they" say.
Though trial may come,
Though storms increase,
His love shall bring me peace.
Black or white,
Bond or free,
Male and female too,
Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Queer
Our place is with Him There and Here
