Song history for I Feel My Savior's Love

This information comes from Stories from The Children’s Songbook by Sister Pat Graham.

The pageant III Nephi was presented at the Marriott Center on the University of Utah campus in 1979. This song was written for the scene portraying the Savior as He appeared to the Nephites…

The 1982 Children’s Sacrament Meeting Presentation included an additional verse emphasizing service for the song. The verse was included in the Children’s Songbook but because of the length of the song the following chorus, was not: “In this I will follow him: Give all I have for him; To feel my Savior’s love, To know my Savior loves me.”

I Feel My Savior's Love Lyrics

Find the sheet music to I Feel My Savior’s Love on the Church’s website.  The lyrics define how and where to feel the Savior’s love:

1. I feel my Savior’s love In all the world around me. His Spirit warms my soul Through ev’rything I see.

[Chorus] He knows I will follow him, Give all my life to him. I feel my Savior’s love, The love he freely gives me.

2. I feel my Savior’s love; Its gentleness enfolds me, And when I kneel to pray, My heart is filled with peace.

[CHORUS]

3. I feel my Savior’s love And know that he will bless me. I offer him my heart; My shepherd he will be.

[CHORUS]

4. I’ll share my Savior’s love By serving others freely. In serving I am blessed. In giving I receive. 

[CHORUS]

Sensory Bags

Emily shared her unique idea on the PML FB of using sensory bags for teaching I Feel My Savior’s Love.  

Camille's Primary Ideas: I Feel My Savior's Love Primary singing time ideas

This is how Emily incorporated it into her singing time:

I love the emphasis of FEELING in this song so I decided these sensory bags would go well. I put things of different textures and feelings in brown paper bags.

I wanted them to have contrasting textures. I chose a silky piece of fabric, sticks I cut from a bush, hand warmers that I put in gloves so they could feel the heat, sand paper, and a fleece fabric.

As we sang the song, I walked around and room letting each child, teacher, and leader … reach in my bag and without looking, feel what was in the bag.

After I finished with one bag, I asked them to give me describing words of how it felt to them (they said soft, warm, scratchy, creamy, etc.) Then I asked them if that’s how they think Heavenly Father’s love feels.

When we were done with the song I quickly testified that Heavenly Father’s love may feel different at different times (like soft, warm, etc.) and that it doesn’t feel scratchy and pokey.

It’s important to pay attention to the feelings that we have in our hearts so we can Identify his love In our life.

Love it!

      All the printables are available on the Resource Library. There are instructions at the bottom of the post (including a video) to help you access that page. I hope that helps!

  1. Is there a way to download your graphics/flip charts besides the big “download now” buttons where you have to establish an account etc? I would use more of your tools but the accessing of them always stops me. Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Michelle!

      The easiest way to access the Resource Library without entering your email address every time is simply to bookmark the link on your web browser. I also emailed you the link. You can save that email (or the email I send every Friday) so you can reference it that way as well. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    1. Hi Sharri!

      All I have is the 2 to a sheet, sorry about that. You could try printing them at 200% to see if you can enlarge them but I’m not sure if that would work.
