When my dad says,

“Let’s go and play,”

We run down to the park.

When my mom says,

“It’s time for bed,”

I lie down in the dark.

When music says,

“You need to dance,”

I move my hands and feet.

When tummy says,

“I need a snack,”

I get something to eat.

When the prophet says,

“We all must pray,”

I humbly bow my head.

His voice is one

That speaks for God,

So I’ll do as he’s said.
