This is an mp3 of just the piano playing. This song teaches children (and adults) that repentance is a happy thing. How blessed we are to have the opportunity to be forgiven of mistakes through our repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ! God knew we would make mistakes and that we would need to learn from those mistakes. He knew we would need chances to get up and try again. Evidence of this is the Sacrament we are able to partake of each week.

I try to be like Jesus each and every day,
But sometimes in my efforts, my mistakes get in the way.
No, I'm not always as good as I know how to be,
But when I'm truly sorry, forgiveness sets me free.
The Savior said, "Come follow me",
His love He gives to all,
And even though I make mistakes,
He'll lift me when I fall.
So I'll partake of the Sacrament
Each week with humble heart.
Forgiveness is a gift from God,
Repentance is my part.
I try to live like Jesus in everything I do,
Obey, be kind, serve others, and live a life that's true.
And yet, at times, my weakness has made my heart to break,
But, Jesus said He'd help me turn weakness into strength.
