Quickly I’ll Obey

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


Cheerfully

1. When my mother calls me,

Quickly I’ll obey.

I want to do just what is best

Each and ev’ry day.

2. When my father calls me,

Quickly I’ll obey.

I want to do just what is best

Each and ev’ry day.

3. Heav’nly Father loves me,

Blesses me each day.

I want to do just what is best

Each and ev’ry day.
