For Young Children
By Olivia Corey Randall
Based on a true story
The author lives in Utah, USA.
Esi liked to sing. Singing in Primary made her happy. She knew that Jesus loved to hear her sing.
One day Mama and Baba were singing a hymn in sacrament meeting. Esi wanted to sing too, but she didn’t know the words.
“Why are you sad?” Mama asked Esi.
“I don’t know the words,” Esi said.
“I have an idea,” Mama said. “Next week when we sing, you can hum along.”
Esi felt much better. She liked to hum.
The next week Esi hummed while Baba and Mama sang the hymns. Esi felt happy. She knew that Jesus loved to hear her hum.
