If I Were There Flip Chart
Now, I’d like to just introduce my style for creating Singing Time Primary Flip Charts! I’ve created a TON of printable flipcharts and my style is a little different than others. While I like to be able to display the words, I don’t want the flip chart to distract from the teaching method.
If I Were There Lyrics
This song is written by Angie Killian and Monica Scott. It will need approval before being taught in Primary. You can purchase the If I Were There Sheet Music Here.
If I were there on that silent night,
Would I hear angels sing praises in the sky?
If I were there, would I go with haste
With humble shepherds to seek His holy place?
If I were there, I’d find the manger
And bow before the tiny Savior.
I’d sense the peace that filled the air
If I were there, if I were there.
If I were there, would I see the star
Or join with wisemen who journeyed from afar?
If I were there, would I gladly bring
My finest treasure to lay before my King?
I was not there, but inside I know
That precious baby who came so long ago
Was Jesus Christ, Lord of heav’n and earth;
I sing his praises as I celebrate His birth.
Final Refrain after Chorus:
If I were there.
