If I Listen with My Heart (DeFord)


If I Listen with My Heart (DeFord)

Music for Children, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

I had been a little child when Jesus lives on earth,

I would have liked to walk with him and listen to his words,

But as I search the scriptures I can hear his words of peace,

And If I listen with my heart I hear the Savior’s voice.

 

I hear a living prophet speak the things that Christ would say

If he were here upon the earth to talk with me today,

The prophet teaches how to live in righteousness and peace.

And if I listen with my heart I hear the Savior’s voice.

 

I feel my father’s gentle (a priesthood holder’s) hands laid softly on my head,

I hear him call on priesthood pow’r to comfort me in need,

I feel the warmth of heaven as he blesses me with peace,

And if I listen with my heart I hear the Savior’s voice.

 

He speaks to me in quiet ways that fill my soul with peace,

And when I listen with my heart I hear the Savior’s voice.
