It’s always fun to add a new Primary song Flip Chart to our long list of songs we’ve already created them for! This time, we’re adding Follow the Prophet which is a wonderful song to include in your Old Testament Primary Song selections!

It is listed on the Old Testament Primary Songs rotation twice and another 2 times for the Book of Mormon song list.

Plus, since it covers so many of the Old Testament prophets, it’s especially applicable this year! You could do a different verse each month as a wiggle song to introduce some of the different ancient prophets or just pick a couple of verses to sing!

When you’re in a pinch, I also have this post on 10 Singing Time Ideas using Flip Charts that is perfect for when you need a last minute (or substitute) lesson that takes no prep! So many good ideas over there to get you thinking!

Follow the Prophet Lyrics
& Prophets List!

1. Adam was a prophet, first one that we know.
In a place called Eden he helped things to grow.
Adam served the Lord by following his ways.
We are his descendants in the latter days.

2. Enoch was a prophet; he taught what was good.
People in his city did just what they should.
When they were so righteous that there was no sin,
Heav’nly Father took them up to live with him.

3. Noah was a prophet called to preach the word,
Tried to cry repentance, but nobody heard.
They were busy sinning-Noah preached in vain.
They wished they had listened when they saw the rain.

4. Abraham the prophet prayed to have a son,
So the Lord sent Isaac as the chosen one.
Isaac begat Jacob, known as Israel;
Jacob’s sons were twelve tribes, so the Bible tells.

5. Moses was a prophet sent to Israel.
He would lead them to the promised land to dwell.
They were slow to follow, or so it appears.
They were in the wilderness for forty years.

6. Samuel was a prophet chosen as a boy.
Hannah promised God her son would serve with joy.
In the tabernacle, Samuel heard his name;
He was called by God and answered, “Here I am!”

7. Jonah was a prophet, tried to run away,
But he later learned to listen and obey.
When we really try, the Lord won’t let us fail:
That’s what Jonah learned deep down inside the whale.

8. Daniel was a prophet. He refused to sin;
So the king threw Daniel in the lion’s den.
Angels calmed the lions, and the king soon saw
Daniel’s pow’r was great, for he obeyed God’s law.

9. Now we have a world where people are confused.
If you don’t believe it, go and watch the news.
We can get direction all along our way,
If we heed the prophets follow what they say.

Bonus Verse: Russell M. Nelson, gentle, kind and smart.
That’s why he became a doctor of the heart.
Teaching faith in Jesus, as we seek and pray:
He’s still healing hearts just in another way!
