My Brother Brian

My brother Brian is very tall.
He’s honest and brave and true.
He’s taken me fishing; I’ve watched him play ball.
Oh, how much he has taught me to do!
My brother Brian is very kind.
He’s happy and helpful and fun.
He brings me sweet treats; he takes me for rides.
And together how much we have done!
My brother Brian soon leaves on a mission.
He’s nervous and just a bit grim.
But Heavenly Father will bless him, I know,
’Cause I will be praying for him.
