Their Mothers Knew Sheet Music and Lyrics

Purchase the sheet music to Their Mothers Knew.  As before mentioned, the lyrics tell about the faith of the 2000 Stripling Warrior’s mothers:

Taught by their mothers while in their youth Armed with the light of His truth. They knew the Lord would always be near Into battle they did not fear

[CHORUS] Helaman’s two thousand Knew their mothers loved the Lord At their mother’s knees They learned to trust in His word. With courage and faith they stayed true. They did not doubt Their mothers knew.

Taught by our mothers while in our youth, Armed with the light of His truth Preparing for the battles in store Like the warriors who came before.

Helaman’s two thousand Knew their mothers loved the Lord At their mother’s knees They learned to trust in His word With courage and faith they stayed true They did not doubt Their mothers knew.

They did not doubt Their mothers knew.

3. Eraser Pass

Crystal also shared her eraser pass for both Sr. and Jr. Primaries.

Eraser pass is a simple activity you can do with ANY song!  Choose keywords from the song and write them on the board.  Then group those keywords with 2 other words not found in the song. 

As you sing the song, have a child erase one word not found in the song.  After their turn, they pass the eraser to another child to erase another word.  When finished, only the keywords remain.

Crystal’s variation using picture for Jr. Primary is brilliant! She explained:

For junior they just pointed at which picture belonged and I flipped it over.
