I will sing the song through and show them how the first
line of the song forms a rainbow with the melody.
There will be key words or phrases to the song hidden
under their chairs and I will ask them to find them:
c.. clean again
d.. earth right after rain
f.. live with God
Then I will have them listen again to the song as I sing
it. They will need to decide the order of the words.
After they place the words/phrases on the rainbow, I will
sing the song through again to see if all the words are in the correct order.
We will change any that need changing and listen to check
Then I will have them sing it with me one line at a time.
