Teach Behold the Great Redeemer Die in singing time using this simple lesson plan that utilizes mainly the Gospel Art Book. Your Primary will love recognizing this hymn when it is sung in sacrament meeting, typically as the sacrament hymn.
When teaching hymns, I typically only teach only the first verse. However, with this activity, if you want to teach all the verses, you easily can!
