When the Prophet Speaks

When the prophet speaks, I listen.
His words are always clear.
He shares with me the message
The Lord wants me to hear.
“Let us be good people,”
Is what I hear him say.
Be friendly to our neighbors,
Help others on their way.
He speaks of many temples
In countries everywhere.
When I’m older I’ll be ready
To receive great blessings there.
He shares his testimony,
The truth of what he knows.
As I feel his witness,
My own testimony grows.
The Lord speaks through His prophet.
If I listen to his voice,
I’ll know exactly what to do
When I must make a choice.
