We’re delighted to share an audio recording of “Samuel the Lamanite” a catchy song only available here on PrimaryinZion! This original song, with words and music by Dr. Mark Henderson, is a memorable way to teach about this brave ancient prophet that is an inspiration for children today.

Here’s the sheet music: Samuel the Lamanite Piano Accompaniment
Here’s the lyrics:
Samuel, Samuel, Samuel the Lamanite
stood up on the wall.
They threw their arrows and their rocks, rocks, rocks,
but they could not make him fall.
Samuel, Samuel, Samuel the Prophet
said the Savior’s on His way.
In five more years there’ll be a brand new star
and a night as bright as day.
Samuel, Samuel, Samuel the Lamanite said REPENT!
