I Want to Follow the Prophet

    “I Want to Follow the Prophet,” Friend, Oct. 2006, 7

    I Want to Follow the Prophet

    I want to follow the prophet,

    To do all he asks me to do—

    To be humble and grateful and prayerful,

    To be smart, to be clean, to be true!

    I’m thankful to have him to lead me

    And guide me with knowledge and truth,

    To teach me the will of the Savior,

    To show me the way in my youth.

    In this world full of so many voices,

    I am glad there is one I can trust.

    I will follow the words of the prophet,

    I want to, I need to, I must!
