As noble as Abinadi
    Who stood before the king
And testified of Jesus Christ.
    He did not fear a thing.

As noble as young Nephi

    When he made another bow,
And went to ask his father, humbly,
    Where he ought to go.

As noble as King Benjamin

    Who labored with his hands
To meet his needs unselfishly
    By working in the land.

As noble as young Enos

    Who, when needing to repent,
Spent hours long upon his knees
    Until the night was spent.

As noble as bold Ammon

    After saving all the sheep,
Stood in quiet silence
    Waiting for the king to speak.

As noble as fierce Helaman

    In leading all his sons,
Kneeling down in gratitude
    For never losing one.

As noble as a prophet,

    May I strive to be
The kind of servant Heavenly Father
    Needs to make of me.

Anna M. Molgard
Upon reading the account of Abinadi’s sacrifice in Mosiah 17
