I know that my Redeemer
lives (Hymns # 136)
Friend April. 2007, suggestion # 5
Invite the children to
D&C 76:22. Preface the scripture by
explaining that Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon
had a vision.
Read the scripture together. Point out the exclamation point at the end.
Ask the children to read the scripture again and say the last two words with enthusiasm, "he lives!"
To teach the first verse, tell the children that in the first sentence they will find out who the "He" is ("my Redeemer").
Tell the children that this hymn is a testimony of Church members just as D&C 76:22 is the testimony of Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon.
Bear your testimony, and then invite the children to bear their testimonies with you by singing "I Know That My Redeemer Lives."
