mourn with those, comfort those, stand as a witness of God

This is Alma baptizing at the Waters of Mormon.  This is the covenant we all take upon ourselves at baptism.  "Behold, here are the waters of Mormon (for thus were they called) and now, as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light; 

Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life—

Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?" (Mosiah 18:8-10 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/mosiah/18.8-10)

May we ever remember the promises we make at baptism, and have them renewed when we take the Sacrament, where we are willing to take upon ourselves the name of Christ, and always Remember him, that we may always have his spirit to be with us (Moroni 4-5 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/moro/4)
