Heroes of the Scriptures I want to be like Noah

I want to be like Noah,
Courageous like Queen Esther
Like Ruth, I would be faithful.
Heroes of the Scriptures
From “The Friend” June 1998
Words by Penelope Moody Allen
Music by Lynn Shurtleff
And Ammon with his sword.
Like Moses, I’d be true.
Pictures from: Gospel Art Kit,
The Ensign, & The Friend
Obedient to the Lord,
Examples in the scriptures
Like Joseph Smith, seek wisdom
Sariah’s strength on journeys
I want to be like Daniel
And Alma’s change of heart
And stand up for the right;
In prayer for heaven’s light.
Can teach me what to do.
Inspire me to choose wisely,
I want to be like Mary,
Rejoicing in the truth;
Examples in the scriptures
Obedient, brave, and holy--
Can help me to become
More like God’s perfect Son.
Like Samuel and Moroni,
Repent, and do my part.
Who listened in their youth.
