    Why I Love the Prophet

    I love to see the prophet.

    He always seems to be

    So unafraid and happy,

    A source of strength for me.

    I love to hear the prophet

    Reveal both truth and light.

    The Holy Ghost bears witness

    That what he says is right.

    He shows me by example

    The things I need to do

    So I can make wise choices

    And know the Church is true.

    I know the prophet loves me.

    He wants me to be good

    So I can live the gospel

    As Jesus says we should.

    The truths the prophet teaches

    Will help me to obey

    My parents and my leaders,

    Who guide me on my way.

    I’ll heed the prophet’s counsel

    And do my best to show,

    In thought and word and action,

    I live by what I know.
