I Will Follow the Prophet

    “I Will Follow the Prophet,” Friend, Apr. 2008, 7

    I Will Follow the Prophet

    When my dad says,

    “Let’s go and play,”

    We run down to the park.

    When my mom says,

    “It’s time for bed,”

    I lie down in the dark.

    When music says,

    “You need to dance,”

    I move my hands and feet.

    When tummy says,

    “I need a snack,”

    I get something to eat.

    When the prophet says,

    “We all must pray,”

    I humbly bow my head.

    His voice is one

    That speaks for God,

    So I’ll do as he’s said.
