Father Lehi

“Father Lehi,” Friend, June 2000, 18

Father Lehi

Father Lehi had a dream

(Place palms together, put by cheek, and close eyes.)

and saw the tree of life.

(Stretch arms out to sides for tree branches.)

He beckoned to his family—

(With arms out in front, palms up, wave hands toward you.)

his daughters, sons, and wife.

(Pretend to hug family members.)

He wanted them to follow him

(With one arm out in front, palm up, wave hand toward you.)

and stand right where he stood.

(Put feet together and stand tall.)

He wanted them to be with him

(Point to yourself.)

and have all that is good.

(Stretch arms out to sides, palms up.)
