Choose the Right Hymn was one of the VERY first songs I taught as a brand new Primary Music Leader! Because of that, it holds a special place in my heart! I think this is a fantastic song to teach to the Primary kids! And, with this Choose the Right Flip Chart it couldn’t be easier!
Plus, as a bonus perk, the kids always LOVE it when they know one of the hymns sung during Sacrament Meeting!! I love hearing the boost of sweet little voices when one of the hymns we’ve learned in Primary is played during the 1st hour of church.

Do you regularly use flip charts in Primary? I like using flip charts for my opening song and reverence songs that I’m not actively teaching (and repeating) so that the kids feel confident to sing along, even if they don’t know the song very well.
I’ve also used flip chips for no-prep Singing Time lessons when I’m in a pinch. I’ve shared these fun 10 Singing Time Flip Chart Activities over in that post that are perfect to keep handy.
Choose the Right Hymn Lyrics
This song is published in the green LDS Hymn book Page #239
You can find the Choose the Right sheet music here.
Choose the right when a choice is placed before you.
In the right the Holy Spirit guides;
And its light is forever shining o’er you,
When in the right your heart confides.
Choose the right! Choose the right!
Let wisdom mark the way before.
In its light, choose the right!
And God will bless you evermore.
Choose the right! Let no spirit of digression
Overcome you in the evil hour.
There’s the right and the wrong to ev’ry question;
Be safe thru inspiration’s pow’r.
Choose the right! There is peace in righteous doing.
Choose the right! There’s safety for the soul.
Choose the right in all labors you’re pursuing;
Let God and heaven be your goal.
“Choose the Right” words by Joseph L. Townsend (1849–1942) music by Henry A. Tuckett (1852–1918). Used under public domain.
