I Will Always Obey


1. Jesus obeyed His Father,
Kept His commandments perfectly.
Even when He had to suffer and die,
He did not murmur or question why.
He knew the plan, and He followed in faith.
Jesus always obeyed.
2. Joseph obeyed the Father,
Followed directions faithfully.
Seeing a vision he could not deny,
He did not murmur or question why.
He only listened and followed in faith.
Joseph always obeyed.
3. Nephi obeyed his father,
Followed instructions carefully.
Always so ready and willing to try,
He did not murmur or question why.
He only listened and followed in faith.
Nephi always obeyed.
Chorus:
When Heavenly Father speaks to me,
Through parents or prophets, or in quiet ways,
I want to listen and follow in faith,
I will always obey.
