Recently, This Little Light of Mine was sung in the September 2023 Friend to Friend broadcast.  Why not teach this catchy tune to your Primary?

This Little Light of Mine plays at 08:30 into the video.

This Little Light of Mine Lyrics

The lyrics to this catchy children’s song are SO simple!  Teach 1 or all 4 verses!

This light little of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Everywhere I go,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Everywhere I go,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Everywhere I go,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Jesus gave to me.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Jesus gave to me.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Jesus gave to me.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine
let it shine!

This light little of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, oh let it shine.

Print enough copies for each child to have one.

Then you need small 1 inch squares of tissue paper colors like this set (Amazon affiliate link):

And some foam brushes like these (Amazon affiliate link):

Lastly, you need watered down glue.  Simply pour equal parts of white glue and water into a shallow bowl and mix.

This Little Light of Mine Singing Idea

To quickly teach this song, pass out a finger light to each child.

Camille's Primary Ideas: singing time finger lights

Dim the lights.  As you sing the song, have children turn on their finger light whenever the words “light” and “shine” are sung.

Post the words using this flip chart format as needed.

Optional Stained Glass Kids Craft of Jesus

Have children create a stained glass picture of Jesus using the printable, tissue paper squares and glue.  When their picture has dried, hang them in a window!

Make sure to have the song playing while they create!  I recommend playing the variation played in the 2023 friend to friend broadcast linked above.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that we can share Christ’s light by serving and being kind to others.
