    Happy Birthday President Hinckley! Born June 23, 1910

    1. When President Hinckley was a boy,

    he slept outside for fun.

    He noticed all the stars would move,

    except for one.

    2. Discouraged while in the mission field,

    he read these words from home:

    “Forget yourself and go to work.”

    His heart was stirred to

    3. So if you’re discouraged or confused,

    just think of that bright star.

    Remember what our prophet said

    And who you are.

    Chorus: Be constant as the North Star that shines for you and me,

    Anchored in the gospel with pure integrity,

    Steadfast in your service to God and fellowman.

    President Hinckley has shown us that we can.
