Heavenly Heroes

“Heavenly Heroes,” Friend, May 2006, 17

Heavenly Heroes

Each day I’m on the earth

There are choices I must make.

And so I look for heroes

who will show which path to take.

My heroes must be brave and strong

and always choose the right.

I need to see them serve the Lord

with all their mind and might.

I think of all the prophets

leading in the latter days,

who witness of the Savior,

always following His ways.

I know that they were chosen

long before the world began.

Their call to lead the Church was part

of Heavenly Father’s plan.

I know that I was chosen too

a while before my birth

to fill a special mission

for the Lord upon the earth.

So I try to strengthen muscles

of the spiritual kind,

I try to serve the Lord with all

my heart, my strength, my mind.

I’ll be a heavenly hero,

be all I was meant to be.

The Lord has called me, and I say,

“I want to follow Thee.”
