My Heavenly Father

“My Heavenly Father,” Friend, Nov. 2015, 39

My Heavenly Father

There’s someone close who hears me pray,

And listens to the things I say,

Who isn’t very far away—

He is my Heavenly Father.

Each time I pray, I feel Him near.

And when I listen, I can hear

The Spirit saying, “Do not fear,”

Sent from my Heavenly Father.

He wants for me such joy, and so

I will obey and learn and grow,

Return to Him, because I know

He is my Heavenly Father.
