Lyrics: The prophet is our watchman,
called from God above
To care for all His children,
teach them of His love
When he speaks, the spirit
testifies to me
I know that his words are true
and it's plain to see

God has sent us watchmen
to guide His children home
I'll listen to their counsel,
heed the path they've shone
If I live the gospel
each and ev'ry day,
trusting in His watchmen,
I'll never lose my way

The prophets and apostles
teach us to beware
Warning us of danger
from the tempter's snare
Preaching of repentance,
showing us the way
How to always choose the right,
and I will obey!

God has sent us watchmen
to guide His children home
I'll listen to their counsel,
heed the path they've shone
If I live the gospel
each and ev'ry day,
trusting in His watchmen,
I'll never lose my way

Yes, I will live the gospel
each and ev'ry day
Trusting in His watchmen
I'll never lose my way
