Primary Music Helps: The Holy Ghost


When Christ was on the earth,
He promised he would send
The Holy Ghost to comfort us,
Our true, eternal friend.
The Holy Spirit whispers with a still small voice.
He testifies of God and Christ and makes our hearts rejoice.
And when we are confirmed
By sacred priesthood pow’r,
The Holy Ghost is giv’n to us
To guide us ev’ry hour.
Oh, may I always listen to that still small voice.
And with his light I’ll do what’s right each time I make a choice.

Teaching suggestion for Primary music leader: After the children are familiar with the words to both verses, have them hum the song except the lines “The Holy Spirit whispers with a still small voice” and “Oh, may I always listen to that still small voice.” When the children get to those lines, have them sing the words to emphasize the importance of recognizing the Holy Ghost.
