Our Bishop

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. Busy as a man can be,

He’s our bishop.

He finds time to talk to me;

He’s our bishop.

Always kindly words he’ll say

To the children ev’ry day.

Let us help him ev’ry way;

He’s our bishop.

2. Cheerful as he serves the Lord,

He’s our bishop.

He’s the father of our ward;

He’s our bishop.

He helps us to do the right

In our Heav’nly Father’s sight.

We love him with all our might;

He’s our bishop.
