If you remember, there is no 2nd verse in the Children’s Songbook for the song, The Church of Jesus Christ. But I’ve landed on the 2nd verse that was written by the same author, Janice Kapp Perry, and it’s AMAZING!
But a word of caution … it’s not church-approved so make sure to get authorization from your bishop before teaching it.
To teach the 2nd verse of this song, you will need to first get the music! Purchase the CD called Beloved Double Melodies of Janice Kapp Perry which includes a PDF version of the music to print.
Order the music online HERE. You can also listen to it on YouTube:
- Have the kids listen to the song (from YouTube or the CD) and ask if they’ve ever heard the 2nd verse to this song [probably not].
- Listen to it again and ask if the 2nd verse sounds like the 1st verse [No].
- Then listen yet again and ask what is special about the 2nd verse [even though it’s different, it can be sung at the same time as the 1st verse and it sounds GOOD together!]
PITCH LEADING: As the notes go up, move your hand or stick up (I like to hold the stick sideways) and as the notes go down, you move the stick down. The kids really love it and it’s a great way to incorporate movement into your lesson.
