Here are some suggestions for teaching this Primary song: Cut out the word cards and place them facing up on a table. Have the first player close his or her eyes and point to the prophet pictures. Whichever prophet is chosen, have the person choose the three word cards that relate to that prophet. Then sing that verse of the song as a family.
Write the words on pieces of paper and display them on the board. After a child has chosen a prophet, have three children go to the board and choose a related word. Have them hold the words in order while the Primary sings the verse.
We are his descendants
Heavenly Father took them up
Preached in vain
Prayed to have a son
“Here I am!”
Listen and obey
Refused to sin
