I Know that My Redeemer Lives Color Code
I hope you love this fun color code that I’ve created for this song! There are several words and phrases that are repeated thorughout this song, which makes it a perfect choice for a color code!
I’ve created a color code with 4 colors that represent lyrics that appear in the song. The code is broken down into 4 categories that are explained a little later in this post. You can find a printable version of the color code for the first verse in the printable later in this post!
Begin by reviewing the first verse of I Know That My Redeemer Lives at the beginning of singing time.
Post the color code on the board. You can either choose to post the entire code at once or just show one page at a time. Since the first page of the song contains all 4 of the colors in the color code, it might be a good idea to just post the first page.
Ask the kids: What do you notice? How many different colors are included? What might the colors represent? Why are some colors wider or shorter than others? What patterns do you see?
Sing through the song again. Then, see if the children can guess what one or two of the colors stand for. Continue singing through the song as you uncover the code! Crack the code one color at a time until you’ve uncovered all the words!
This activity is a great way to get in lots of repetition while having fun! Keep scrolling for a video demo and 3 extension ideas for this activity!

I Know That My Redeemer Lives Color Code Video Demo
Want to see my breakdown of the color code for this song? Watch this short demo video for some tips for using this activity in singing time. In this video, I’ll explain the color code key and show how the code is used throughout the song.
- Each time you uncover part of the code, write the lyric over the correct color. Make a star or box around words that are the same. For example, the word “Lives” comes up multiple times in the song. Draw a star next to all the color code words that represent “lives.”
- Choose a different action for each color! Purple – clap, Orange – roll arms, Blue – stomp, Green – pat knees. Each time you sing one of the color code words, do the corresponding actions!
- Divide the class into 4 groups and assign one color to each group. Have each group sing when their color comes up in the song!
- Add some additional colors to differentiate between different actions. For example, use a different color for “Lives” than the other actions. Create your own color code by writing the lyrics on the board, then erasing some words and replacing them with a colored line or box.
