Could I Hold the Baby Sheet Music and Lyrics

Download the sheet music to Could I Hold the Baby on the Church’s website.  The lyrics make me wish I could have held the baby Jesus on that first Christmas night!

It’s Christmas Eve, I’m tucked in bed, I’m snug and warm, my prayers are said. I start to think about the first Christmas Night. The manger warm, the baby fair, the star that led the shepherds there, and what I’d say to Mary as she smiled at the little Christ child.

[CHORUS] Could I hold the baby? Will he smile at me? Does He know why He is born and what his life will be? Could I hold the baby and tell him of my love? How glad I am that Jesus Christ was sent from heaven above.

Now ev’ry day the whole year through I’ll think of all that I can do To be like Him and live as He showed me how. And I’ll remember that Christmas toys are not as dear as girls and boys, that Jesus loves each one of us endlessly. He loves you and me.

Could I Hold the Baby Baby Flip Chart

For this activity, you need a flip chart for Could I Hold the Baby.  I recommend this one from The Primary Pad:

Could I Hold the Baby Singing Time Idea

Pass out the pages randomly to the Primary. Sing the song and have children look at the page they have.  Have teachers help them read their phrases.

Sing the song again and have children help put them in order on the board. Repeat singing as many times as needed to get the pictures on the board.

Sing again to check answers. Time permitting, remove several pages at a time and sing, gradually removing more pages.

Could I Hold the Baby Pointer Actions

For added movement, teach these pointer actions as each page is placed on the board (starts at 11:15 in the video):
