Camille's Primary Ideas: When He Comes Again Singing Time Lesson Plan Idea
For our April “song of your choice” I chose When He Comes Again (if you are having trouble choosing, check out my post HERE for more ideas!).  This will also double as the song we will sing during sacrament meeting on Easter Sunday.
 

To introduce the song, post a picture of the second coming on the chalkboard (there is one in the Gospel Art Book – see how I use mine HERE – or you can download and print one HERE or I have the above image available to print below but you will want to cover up the text).
 
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.
 
Play the song on CD or you and the teachers sing along with the piano (words posted – see how I do that HERE).  As the kids listen, pass out various coloring pages to each child along with crayons or colored pencils:
 
There are 2 options: coloring pages with images for the 1st verse available to download (do not make copies or pass out the first page to color – that is an optional page to post on the chalkboard).  I thought these would be easier for Jr. primary.
 
Or I created a blank option for the 1st verse (again, do not make copies or pass out the first page to color – that is an optional page to post on the chalkboard).  Sr. primary might enjoy the freedom of coming up with their own images.
 
A lot of images are from an article from the Friend found HERE.  The rest are from lds.org HERE or HERE or a random Google search.  If you find any errors, PLEASE let me know!!
 
Randomly pass out the various sheets to the primary.  Give them 5 – 7 minutes to color as they listen to the song.  Once completed, gather coloring supplies.
 
Call up children who have the next phrase in the song [Will herald angels sing?].  Have them show their drawings and hang them on the chalkboard or a section of a wall in the primary (depending on the size of your primary) using tape or magnets.  Sing the phrase posted on the chalkboard [I wonder, when he comes again] then the next phrase that was just introduced by the kids [Will herald angels sing?].
 
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.
 
Time permitting, remove pages and repeat (maybe asking if anyone knows the artist!) until all the pages have been removed and the song has been memorized.
 
**Find my images for the 2nd verse HERE.  There are only 4 more pages as opposed to the 8 on the 1st verse so plan accordingly if you are splitting this between weeks.  Getting to both verses in one singing time will be a lot.  One week could be focused on only listening and coloring then the second week could be showcasing the images, hanging them up/taking them down all while singing the song in between phrases.

    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.

    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.

      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

    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.
