Lyrics
Nephi's Faith
The Lord told Nephi to go to Laban's house
And bring back the sacred books of brass.
Laman and Lemuel thought he would be killed.
But the faith of Nephi,
The solid faith of Nephi
Compelled him to do as the Lord had willed.

He said, "I will do the things
The Lord has asked me to
For God will only ask of me 
Those things that I can do
If what He asks is hard,
I know He will be there,
And He will help me to succeed
If I but do my share."

Nephi's mission was not an easy one
For Laban was wicked as can be.
Laman and Lemuel, their fears would not abate.
But the faith of Nephi,
The solid faith of Nephi
Compelled him to try 'til he had the plates.

He said, "I will do the things
The Lord has asked me to
For God will only ask of me 
Those things that I can do
If what He asks is hard,
I know He will be there,
And He will help me to succeed
If I but do my share."

When we are troubled with tasks that seem too great,
We need to remember Nephi's faith.
Laman and Lemuel, such bad examples they!
But the faith of Nephi,
The solid faith of Nephi
Compels us to do things the Lord's own way.

We should go and do the things
The Lord has asked us to
For God will only ask of us
Those things that we can do.
If what He asks is hard,
We know He will be there,
And He will help us to succeed
If we but do our share!
