I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus by Emily Brown
1. I’m trying to be like Jesus;
I’m following in his ways. I’m trying to love as he did, in all that I do and say. At times I am tempted to make a wrong choice, But I try to listen as the still small voice whispers, [Chorus] “Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought, For these are the things Jesus taught.” 2. I’m trying to love my neighbor; I’m learning to serve my friends. I watch for the day of gladness when Jesus will come again. I try to remember the lessons he taught. Then the Holy Spirit enters into my thoughts, saying: I Am a Child of God by A Young Men and Young Women choir from stakes in Bennion and Taylorsville, Utah
1. I am a child of God,
And he has sent me here, Has given me an earthly home With parents, kind and dear. [Chorus] Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, Help me find the way. Teach me all that I must do To live with him someday. 2. I am a child of God, And so my needs are great; Help me to understand his words Before it grows too late. 3. I am a child of God. Rich blessings are in store; If I but learn to do his will, I’ll live with him once more. 4. I am a child of God. His promises are sure; Celestial glory shall be mine If I can but endure. Families Can Be Together Forever
1. I have a fam’ly here on earth.
They are so good to me. I want to share my life with them through all eternity. [Chorus] Fam’lies can be together forever Through Heav’nly Father’s plan. I always want to be with my own family, And the Lord has shown me how I can. The Lord has shown me how I can. 2. While I am in my early years, I’ll prepare most carefully, So I can marry in God’s temple for eternity. A Child’s Prayer by One Voice Children’s Choir
1. Heavenly Father, are you really there?
And do you hear and answer ev’ry child’s prayer? Some say that heaven is far away, But I feel it close around me as I pray. Heavenly Father, I remember now Something that Jesus told disciples long ago: “Suffer the children to come to me.” Father, in prayer I’m coming now to thee. 2. Pray, he is there; Speak, he is list’ning. You are his child; His love now surrounds you. He hears your prayer; He loves the children. Of such is the kingdom, the kingdom of heav’n. Teach Me to Walk in the Light by Evelyn Grace and Lyza Bull
1. Teach me to walk in the light of his love;
Teach me to pray to my Father above; Teach me to know of the things that are right; Teach me, teach me to walk in the light. 2. Come, little child, and together we’ll learn Of his commandments, that we may return Home to his presence, to live in his sight— Always, always to walk in the light. 3. Father in Heaven, we thank thee this day For loving guidance to show us the way. Grateful, we praise thee with songs of delight! Gladly, gladly we’ll walk in the light. I Love to See the Temple by A Primary choir from stakes in Kaysville and Fruit Heights, Utah
1. I love to see the temple.
I’m going there someday To feel the Holy Spirit, To listen and to pray. For the temple is a house of God, A place of love and beauty. I’ll prepare myself while I am young; This is my sacred duty. 2. I love to see the temple. I’ll go inside someday. I’ll cov’nant with my Father; I’ll promise to obey. For the temple is a holy place Where we are sealed together. As a child of God, I’ve learned this truth: A fam’ly is forever. Follow the Prophet
1. Adam was a prophet, first one that we know.
In a place called Eden, he helped things to grow. Adam served the Lord by following his ways. We are his descendants in the latter days. [Chorus] Follow the prophet, follow the prophet, Follow the prophet; don’t go astray. Follow the prophet, follow the prophet, Follow the prophet; he knows the way. 2. Enoch was a prophet; he taught what was good. People in his city did just what they should. When they were so righteous that there was no sin, Heav’nly Father took them up to live with him. 3. Noah was a prophet called to preach the word, Tried to cry repentance, but nobody heard. They were busy sinning—Noah preached in vain. They wished they had listened when they saw the rain. 4. Abraham the prophet prayed to have a son, So the Lord sent Isaac as the chosen one. Isaac begat Jacob, known as Israel; Jacob’s sons were twelve tribes, so the Bible tells. 5. Moses was a prophet sent to Israel. He would lead them to the promised land to dwell. They were slow to follow, or so it appears. They were in the wilderness for forty years. 6. Samuel was a prophet chosen as a boy. Hannah promised God her son would serve with joy. In the tabernacle, Samuel heard his name; He was called by God and answered, “Here I am!” 7. Jonah was a prophet, tried to run away, But he later learned to listen and obey. When we really try, the Lord won’t let us fail: That’s what Jonah learned deep down inside the whale. 8. Daniel was a prophet. He refused to sin; So the king threw Daniel in the lion’s den. Angels calmed the lions, and the king soon saw Daniel’s pow’r was great, for he obeyed God’s law. 9. Now we have a world where people are confused. If you don’t believe it, go and watch the news. We can get direction all along our way, If we heed the prophets—follow what they say. Love One Another by The Tabernacle Choir
As I have loved you,
Love one another. This new commandment: Love one another. By this shall men know Ye are my disciples, If ye have love One to another. Silly LDS Primary Songs
Popcorn Popping by The Holley Sisters
I looked out the window, and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree! Spring had brought me such a nice surprise, Blossoms popping right before my eyes. I could take an armful and make a treat, A popcorn ball that would smell so sweet. It wasn’t really so, but it seemed to be Popcorn popping on the apricot tree. Once There Was a Snowman
Once there was a snowman, snowman, snowman,
Once there was a snowman, tall, tall, tall. In the sun he melted, melted, melted. In the sun he melted, small, small, small. Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam by Cedarmont Kids
1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for him each day; In ev’ry way try to please him, At home, at school, at play. [Chorus] A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam. A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I’ll be a sunbeam for him. 2. Jesus wants me to be loving And kind to all I see, Showing how pleasant and happy His little one can be. The Wise Man and the Foolish Man
1. The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock, The wise man built his house upon the rock, And the rains came tumbling down. 2. The rains came down, and the floods came up, The rains came down, and the floods came up, The rains came down, and the floods came up, And the house on the rock stood still. 3. The foolish man built his house upon the sand, The foolish man built his house upon the sand, The foolish man built his house upon the sand, And the rains came tumbling down. 4. The rains came down, and the floods came up, The rains came down, and the floods came up, The rains came down, and the floods came up, And the house on the sand washed away. New Primary Songs
The Miracle by Shawna Edwards
1. Jesus walked upon the water.
He stilled the storm and calmed the angry sea. With His hands He healed the leper. He made the lame to walk, the blind to see. He fed a thousand people with a loaf or two of bread. And when the ruler’s daughter died, He raised her from the dead. Jesus is a God of miracles; Nothing is at all impossible to Him. But I know this: Of all His miracles, the most incredible must be The miracle that rescues me! 2. Jesus bled and died to save me— A price that I could never pay alone. When He rose again, He gave me The greatest gift the world has ever known! Yes, I can be forgiven every time that I repent, And someday He will lift me up to live with Him again. Jesus is a God of miracles; Nothing is at all impossible to Him. But I know this: Of all His miracles the most incredible must be The miracle that rescues me, The miracle that rescues you and me! I Will Be What I Believe by Blake Gillette
Living in this world with change all around
But with the prophets’ words, I’ll stand on solid ground. Even though it’s still hard, with questions that arise, Every day I will say: I’ll have faith like brother Joseph and the strength of the pioneers. I’ll be brave as a strippling warrior and like Nephi persevere. I will spread God’s love to all I know and serve. I will plead with my Father on my knees: I will be what I believe. We’ll spread the gospel wide throughout all the earth With Jesus as our guide we’ll wield the sword of truth. Even though it’s still hard, with questions that arise, Every day, I will say: I’ll have faith like brother Joseph and the strength of the pioneers. I’ll be brave as a strippling warrior and like Nephi persevere. I will spread God’s love to all I know and serve. I will plead with my Father on my knees: I will be what I believe. We are as the army of Heleman. We have been taught in our youth, and we will be the Lord’s missionaries to bring the world His truth. I’ll have faith like brother Joseph and the strength of the pioneers. I’ll be brave as a strippling warrior and like Nephi persevere. I will spread God’s love to all I know and serve. I will plead with my Father on my knees: I will be what I believe. I will be what I believe. Gethsemane by Claire Ryann
Jesus climbed the hill to the garden still.
His steps were heavy and slow. Love and a prayer took Him there To the place only He could go. Gethsemane. Jesus loves me, So He went willingly to Gethsemane. He felt all that was sad, wicked, or bad, All the pain we would ever know. While His friends were asleep, He fought to keep His promise made long ago. Gethsemane. Jesus loves me, So He went willingly to Gethsemane. The hardest thing that ever was done, The greatest pain that ever was known, The biggest battle that ever was won— This was done by Jesus! The fight was won by Jesus! Gethsemane. Jesus loves me, So He gave His gift to me in Gethsemane. Gethsemane. Jesus loves me, So He gives His gift to me from Gethsemane. I Will Walk with Jesus
1. Jesus walked in wisdom; Jesus grew in truth.
He showed love to God and man while in His youth. Jesus wants to guide me. Jesus shows the way, Calling me to come and walk with Him each day. [Chorus] As I walk with Jesus to my home above, He will bless me with His Spirit and fill me with His love, Change my heart forever and help me clearly see. I will walk with Jesus, and He will walk with me. 2. I can grow like Jesus. I will try each day— Promising to walk His path and there to stay. Standing by my Savior, safe within His care, Step by step I’ll follow, and His love I’ll share. 3. I will trust in Jesus. I will hear His call. He will never leave me, even when I fall. Jesus gives me power, lifts and comforts me, Helping me to live and grow eternally. I Know That My Savior Loves Me by Reese Oliveira
1. A long time ago in a beautiful place,
Children were gathered ’round Jesus. He blessed and taught as they felt of His love. Each saw the tears on His face. The love that He felt for His little ones I know He feels for me. I did not touch Him or sit on His knee, Yet, Jesus in real to me Chorus I know He lives! I will follow faithfully. My heart I give to Him. I know that my Savior loves me. 2. Now I am here in a beautiful place, Learning the teachings of Jesus Parents and teachers will help guide the way, Lighting my path ev’ry day. Wrapped in the arms of my Savior’s love, I feel His gentle touch. Living each day, I will follow His way, Home to my Father above. Final Thoughts On The Best LDS Primary Songs
