I Heard the Prophet


1. I heard the prophet speak today.
He spoke of Jesus Christ.
He said that I should always pray
And live a righteous life.
I heard the prophet speak today.
I felt his words. Did you?
I know that he was sent by God
And what he says is true.
2. Now Joshua, and Joseph Smith,
And Paul, and Nephi, too,
Were called by God, who spoke to them
And told them what to do.
Some built a ship. Some healed the sick.
Some turned the night to day.
But ev’ry prophet knows the Lord
And teaches us His ways.
3. I heard the prophet speak today.
His words were sure and true.
He said, “Serve God and you’ll be blessed
In righteous things you do.”
God’s chosen prophet leads our church
And teaches us today.
I’ll listen as God speaks through him
And willingly obey.
