When I Am Baptized was a program song last year, too, so chances are your Primary already knows the song pretty well. Still, it’s a really fun song that the kids like – even if they always call it, “I like to look for rainbows” from the first line of the lyrics.
While it would be nice to introduce a new song, When I Am Baptized is so very easy that you’ll be able to just review it a few times during the year and a couple of learning games for the littlest ones in Junior Primary and it will be ready to go!
This song is part of the Doctrine & Covenants Come Follow Me Singing Time and it’s also recommended for Book of Mormon, New Testament years!! I recommend teaching When I Am Baptized during the D&C Primary Songs Rotation!
That will leave you more time to work on other songs or let you hold your Primary program earlier in the year.
When I Am Baptized Flip Chart
For the Flip Chart for When I Am Baptized, there are just 3 pages. One page per verse and a flip chart page for the chorus. This makes this song chart so easy to use and flip though.
You could even skip the chorus page all together and opt for a single sheet protector with one verse on each side.
I’ll be teaching both verses and decided to make a 3-page flip chart for this song as it helps to reinforce the chorus, rather than just the rainbow line of the song!
When I Am Baptized Lyrics
I like to look for rainbows
Whenever there is rain
And ponder on the beauty
Of an earth made clean again.
I want my life to be as clean
As earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can
And live with God again.
I know when I am baptized
My wrongs are washed away,
And I can be forgiven
And improve myself each day.
