Teach this favorite Primary song When He Comes Again in singing time using coloring pages!  As children color, they listen to the music over and over again thus learning the song.

I love that the children get to do most the teaching with this coloring format! Teaching reinforces what they are learning which is so valuable!

Print enough copies for each Primary child to have their own coloring sheet with the exception to the first page that is already colored:

This page is an optional page to post on the board.

TIP: Save ink and use the Gospel Art Book Second Coming image to hang on the board instead.  Then write the phrase “I Wonder, When he comes again,” underneath it.

Teach Primary Singing Time “I Wonder When He Comes Again” with Coloring Pages

Introduction: To introduce the song, post a picture the first colored picture of the second coming on the board or use the one from the Gospel Art Book.

 
Ask if the children know what this picture is about [The Second Coming].  We know Jesus Christ will come again because the scriptures say,
“I, the Lord God have spoken it; but the hour and the day no man knoweth, neither the angels in heaven, nor shall they know until he comes” (D&C 49:7).  
We don’t know when he’ll come but we can wonder what it will be like.
 
Pass out pictures: Pass out a coloring page to each child.  For large Primaries, some children will receive the same coloring page to color and that is okay!
 
Sing & Color: Then pass out coloring utensils (crayons or colored pencils).  Have children turn around on their seats to color.
 
As they are coloring, you and the teachers sing the song with the piano.  Post the words using a flip chart placed over the music stand.

Give the Primary 5 – 7 minutes to color as they listen to the song.  Once completed, gather coloring supplies but have them keep their coloring pages.

Call up children who have the next phrase in the song [Will herald angels sing?]
 
Putting the pictures up: Have them show their drawings and hang them on the board or a section of a wall in the Primary (depending on the size of your Primary) using tape or magnets.
 
Sing the first phrase posted on the board [I wonder, when he comes again] then the second phrase that the children introduced [Will herald angels sing?].
 
Repeat: Repeat with each phrase until all children have been called up to show their drawings and all the phrases have been hung up and sung.  Sing the entire song through.

Adjustments for Teaching When He Comes Again

Time permitting, remove pages and repeat (return pages to their artist!) until all the pages have been removed and the song has been memorized.

If limited on time, take 2 weeks to teach When He Comes Again.  Take one week to color and the second week for teaching.  Simply gather colored pages when finished to save for the following week.

  1. We are singing this song for April also. It is one of my very favorites. I thought you might like to have the words to the 3rd verse, which can be found in the book written by Mirla Greenwood Thayne, the composer of When He Comes Again. I feel like they are so appropriate to our times and especially this last Conference.

    I wonder when He comes again
    Will all the nations bring
    Their little children to His arms
    To hear the angels sing?

    And as they hear His loving voice
    And seek His outstretched hand,
    Will children of the world rejoice
    To finally understand:

    That only as we do His will
    Can happiness increase,
    That love, alone, can make this world
    A haven of His peace.

  2. thank for show how you made this sheets. every week you have great ideas. I'm very great full for you talents and wiliness to share. We did the coloring pages. they kids had a ball but it was a little load but fun.

  3. I really wanted to use this today but I can’t access your resource library. I filled out the info to join now but nothing happens, I’ve been checking my inbox/spam folders for an email link or something but still nothing. Checked again this morning hoping I’d have access but no luck still. Such a great idea but can’t access it.

    1. The same thing happened to me! I could print it a couple days ago, but went to pull the trigger this morning and all the links to download the pictures are gone and I can’t get into the library although it says the form was sent. You have awesome ideas! Love the coloring pages

  4. Hi Lara and Cynthia!

    I’ve emailed both of you, hopefully that helped. Lara – great to hear you got it! I’ve noticed hotmail users are having the most trouble so I’m going to look into it Monday. Thank you again for your patience. Change is always hard. I’ve resisted doing this for a long time knowing the headache that would come with it. Hopefully it all works out in the end.

    ~Camille

  5. I love your design for the words to “Wonder When He comes again” I can’t seem to get access to the resource file. No email comes through in any of my inboxes just like comments made above. I know this is a couple years later than the past comments…but wondering if you could email me the link or however it works? Thank you!

  6. Hi,
    I just discovered your site and would love to access to your resource file. I tried adding your address to my contacts and checked all my spam folder, but the email with the link is not showing up. Would you mind sending me the link?

  7. hello, i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong but I was hoping to get to your “i wonder when He comes again” printables. I submitted my email but don’t understand where to find the resources page. thanks

    1. Hi Tressa!

      Thank you for letting me know you are having trouble accessing my emails. And I apologize for the delay in my response, I’ve been out of town all weekend. I’ve emailed you the link to my Resource Library along with the direct link to the printables for When He Comes Again.

      I checked your email subscription and I see that you’ve been emailed but it looks like you haven’t received them. After checking your spam folder, add my email address to your contacts. That should make sure that the emails sent going forward will go to your inbox. I’ll manually send you another one right now.

      ~Camille

  8. I feel like I’m missing something…? I was able download the single pages for the 2nd verse, but all I’m finding for the first verse is all the pictures on one single page instead of each individually. Am i doing something wrong?

    1. oh my goodness, i’m so embarrassed! i didn’t realize the first verse pages were in the same PDF as the color picture of Christ. please ignore my silly question 🙂

  9. Hi There. Thank you sooo much for giving so much of yourself and your talents so freely! I don’t have words for how much I appreciate your page 🙂 But… I’m so lost here… I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I literally can’t figure out how to download the worksheets for this song? I’ve checked the resource library and don’t see anything for “I wonder when He Comes again” and can’t see anything on this page? Please help!
