We Thank Thee, O God, For A Prophet EXCEPT…..
We thank thee O God for a Prophet,
To guide us in these latter days
Except when he decides that he must
Ask me to change my ways.
We thank thee for every blessing
Bestowed by thy bounteous hand
Except those who keep me from living
My life just the way I had planned.
Take for instance the weekend we’re approaching
Next month on the first Saturday.
We’ll be at Lagoon, but we’ll listen.
Our family just wants to go play.
Then Sunday with blankets and PJs
We will gather to watch and obey
We’ll sleep through the entire session
And we’ll read the Ensign another day.
We’ll sing of his goodness and mercy
We’ll hear of his conference address
But one thing he’d better not tell me
What to wear or the length of my dress
I don’t mind most of what he teaches
Of this world full of conflict and strife
But I will tune out if he mentions
Things that I need to change in my life.
