Listen to the Prophet


I’ll listen to the prophet—
The one who speaks today.
I’ll try my best to follow
All the words he’ll say.
I’ll listen to the prophets—
The ones from long ago.
I’ll read the words they wrote
Of important truths to know.
When I listen to the prophets—
From past and present too—
I hear the words of Jesus Christ
And learn what I should do.
