Then I’ll give a brief outline of the song:
You can also play this song on handbells using my YouTube video:
- What words did the Nephites cry as they rejoiced? [Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God!]
- Notice as you sing the second half of the chorus that it is the same tune as the first half (pitch lead to help give a visual), except for one word. Which word is it? [High] Sing the entire chorus.
- As I sing the first phrase, find a word that means that the prophecies came to pass or happened. [Fulfilled] Invite the children to sing this phrase.
- As I sing the next phrase, see if the melody is the same or different. [Same] Have the children sing this phrase and then add it to the first phrase.
- Now find two words that describe how Jesus looked. [White-robed and glorified] Point out the analogy of the descending scale: “as he came down from heaven…”
- Jesus Christ appeared to the Nephites on the American continent. What is another name in this song for the American continent? [Promised Land]
- What did the righteous people see? [His wounds]
- What did they come to understand? [That He was risen]
- What are three other names for Jesus Christ? [Savior, Lord and King]
- The Nephites rejoiced. Now who else rejoices? [We rejoice]
