Dare to Do Right Singing Time Idea

Tell the Primary that this is a code to the song, Dare to Do Right.  And they must figure out the code.

You and the teachers sing the song as children listen to discover what everything means.  Post the words using this flip chart format as needed.

 Then write the following on the board:

  • Red:
  • Yellow:
  • Blue:
  • White:
  • Grey:
  • Black lines:

As you and the teachers sing the song, have children figure out what each dot, color and lines mean.  Then singing each time an item is discovered then sing the song again in order to double check each answer.

Answer Key

  • Red: the word “dare” – ask how many times we sing the word “dare” [10 – in the 1st verse & chorus, there’s a total of 12 if you happen to include both verses]
  • Yellow: the word “do”
  • Blue: ways we can and should be daring [right, true, bravely, kindly, well] . Optionally, tell the following story from the October 1974 Friend):
“Once, when I was about seven years old, I had a pal whom I liked very much.  We often walked home from school together…
 
Sometimes we would dare each other to jump across a ditch or to climb a tree just to prove that we were brave.  As we came to my home one day we stood out by the road and talked about who was the fastest runner in the school…
 
When I strongly insisted that I could run faster than my friend, he turned to me and said, ‘If you’re so fast, I dare you to run across the road before that car gets here!’ I looked up the road and saw a car a short distance away.  Without another word I dashed into the road to prove that I was fast and brave.  A moment later the car’s brakes squealed!  It’s bumper hit me, and I landed in an unconscious heap.  
 
When I opened my eyes, my aching body, a hurt pride, and my mother’s anxious face made me realize that I had been neither fast nor brave, I had only been foolish.  I had brought sadness to myself and to others.
 
The lesson I learned…has been valuable to me throughout my life.  I learned that the only dare a person should ever accept is [to choose right]” (Friend October 1979, Elder Pinegar).
  • White: Angels
  • Grey: all the other words
  • Black lines: words with 2 syllables
When you’ve finished, the Primary will have tried to sing along toward the end of repeating the song several times.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that we should dare to do those things that we know are right, regardless of what others might want us to do.
