Follow the Prophet

    Follow the Prophet

    (Children’s Songbook, pages 110–111)

    Hear my voice and follow me (D&C 38:22).

    2. Noah was a prophet

    called to preach the word,

    Tried to cry repentance,

    but nobody heard.

    3. They were busy sinning—

    Noah preached in vain.

    They wished they had listened

    when they saw the rain.

    4. Daniel was a prophet.

    He refused to sin;

    So the king threw Daniel

    in the lion’s den.

    5. Angels calmed the lions,

    and the king soon saw

    Daniel’s pow’r was great,

    for he obeyed God’s law.

    6. Now we have a world where

    people are confused.

    If you don’t believe it,

    go and watch the news.

    7. We can get direction

    all along our way,

    If we heed the prophets—

    follow what they say.

    8. Follow the prophet, follow the prophet,

    Follow the prophet; don’t go astray.

    Follow the prophet; follow the prophet,

    Follow the prophet; he knows the way.
