In My Father’s Hands Pictures

I’m loving the new Father’s Day song In My Father’s Hands by Blake Gillette. If you haven’t heard it yet, go over and grab the mp3 and piano sheet music on his homepage! Grab these In My Father’s Hands Pictures keyword visuals below to easily teach this song.

The sheet music for In My Father’s Hands was free as of the time of this post (3/2022). It’s my Father’s Day song pick for this year. Because I don’t want to spend too many weeks on it, my Primary will likely only sing the 1st and 3rd verses, but I really love them all so it was very hard to pick!

One of the ways I’ll be teaching this song is with a series of hand pictures! There’s a very good chance I may also use these same pictures the week we sing the song, depending on how quickly the kids pick up the words.

If they need any helpers at on come Father’s day, I plan to just use these as the visual and keyword reminders!! (You can also grab the In My Father’s Hands flip chart, if you’d prefer to use that!)

– Mix up the hands and have them rearranged in the correct order.

– Post all the pictures and let the kids pick 2 pictures to remove from the board.

– Have the kids take turns holding the hand pictures. Have them hold up their picture high during their phrase.

– Use them to compare the descriptive words. How does firm and steady compare to soft and humble.

– Post the first picture of each verse at the top of the board and fill in the columns below with the correlating words. What other pictures/words might represent firm and steady?

– Compare our earthly father’s hands to Christ’s hands and to our Heavenly Father’s hands. How are they different? How are they the same?

    • I just double checked the links — all 4 work! They are PDF files, though, so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader or similar program to view a PDF file.

  1. Are all the songs provided here that are not in the Hymns or Children’s Songbook sanctions to be sung in Primary or must I get permission to have the children sing, “I see a Hero” or ” In my Father’s Hands?”

    • You of course have to follow the church handbook – which states you’ll need permission for any song not in the Children’s Songbook, the Hymnbook, or the Friend (or on the Church website). You will need permission (just ask your Bishop!) to teach I See a Hero or In My Father’s Hands.

  2. Hi,

    I subscribed and payed for the subscription. I can’t figure out how to download the pictures for “In my fathers Hands”



    • Hey Rachel,

      There is a separate login to access the free in-post printables. Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to link the two. When you create the login account it unlocks all the free in-post printables. The monthly paid membership includes all the extended printables for the monthly songs and those are a one click download on the membership page. Hope that helps clarify!
