I Know That My Savior Loves Me – Chorus & 1st Verse

I have a VERY simple lesson plan for I Know that my Savior Loves Me.  It still conveys the spiritual message of the song without all the bells and whistles which I absolutely LOVE…

As an attention getter I’ll post the above picture on the chalkboard (find that HERE).  Then I’ll turn off most of the lights and ask the primary to close their eyes as I read the following:

Imagine you are at the temple in Bountiful in ancient America. Not long ago, you endured a terrifying night of tempests, earthquakes, fires, and whirlwinds. You survived, but thousands did not. You probably lost your home and maybe even some family and friends. You might be feeling like your world is shattered and your life is completely ruined.

You’re at the temple in Bountiful to find some kind of comfort. It’s good to be with others, but you still feel lost, confused, and sad.

Suddenly, you hear a voice. You can’t understand it at first, but the third time you hear it, you do.

“Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him.”

You look up and see your Savior.

But He doesn’t just want you to see Him.

“Arise and come forth unto me”.

He wants you to come unto Him.

Afterward, I’ll have the pianist play the chorus as I sing it* using simple actions/hand motions as is suggested in the 2015 Sharing Time Outline found HERE (under the section “Helps for the Music Leader” on page 3).  This simple video was shared on the FB Chorister’s group that I liked (thank you for sharing this!):
*If you are uncomfortable singing a solo, ask the teachers to help you and make sure to post the words like I do HERE to help them.  Or play the song on CD which you can find the link to download it HERE).
Then I’ll start with the chorus, and line by line, we’ll do the action, recite the words, then sing and do the action together, then add on.  Once the chorus is learned, we’ll do the 1st verse.
Also, if you need help remembering what actions/signs go where, I like to jot down simple notes.  For instance, I’ll write down “know” for “I Know he lives” then write next to it “raise bent arm” or something.  I can be forgetful when I get up in front sometimes :).
You can also ask the kids to come up with their own actions.  Divide the primary into sections and assign each section a line from the song.  Then they can come to the front of the class and teach the others their action that goes along with their assigned line.
