Jesus Has Risen Chimes Chart

You’ll love incorporating chimes to teach this beautiful Easter song this year! With this Jesus Has Risen Chimes chart you’ll be able to play either the introduction, the melody, or both to create music while adding lots of singing repetition in a fun way.

Jesus Has Risen is one of the songs included in this year’s New Testament Primary Song List. But, it is also taught in April for the Doctrine & Covenants Come Follow Me songs. No matter which year you plan to teach it, this is a perfect activity for the Easter season!

Jesus Has Risen Chimes

How to Play:

Sing through Jesus Has Risen (lyrics here) once, before introducing the chimes.

Lay your pipe chimes down on the holders and play the chime intro with your pianist. There are 5 notes played before the first lyrics. Pause after the intro and ask the children if they know what that instrument is called (Chimes!) Do you want to try chimes with me?

You will need 8 kids to help you play the chimes. Or, in a smaller Primary you can use just 6 kids and either skip notes 11 and 19 which are only played once each on a 2-note word.

As the music leader, you’ll point to the note in sequence of when to play each note. Each child will hold one chime holding by the string at the top and being careful not to touch the chime.

Use a long pointer so you’re not blocking the chart. You can display the PDF on a TV to view it larger or poster print for me, that was tile scale 190% with landscape orientation. This picture above shows the 4-page size poster printed chime chart!

The children will watch for their specific number and strike the chime with one swift tap. The notes follow along with the piano accompaniment. You can play the piano or just use the chimes, whichever works best for you.

Everyone sings along with the song and pick new helpers after each time through the song until everyone gets a chance to chime the bells! This is a short and easy song, so you can get in lots of singing repetition with this activity!

Extension Activities:

  • Use the chimes only with the intro! This is a great way to introduce Chimes for the very first time with only 3 helpers.
  • You might see if you can get special permission to play the chimes intro if singing this song for Easter! I would recommend only including the 5 intro chimes if using them in Sacrament meeting.
  • Add just one chime at a time. I recommend starting with chime #12, but you can let your volunteer pick from the available chimes. Now, add another chime number and have two helpers participate!
  • Have the children pick 2 numbers to not sing. Continue to use the chimes or play the chimes only for the numbers that you’re not singing!

  1. I am so happy that you are recommending these chimes! I ordered them a few weeks ago and was totally surprised how quickly they came. The are high quality and moderately priced. I can’t wait to use them with the children. I didn’t order anything but the chimes but think I may make a stand using pvc pipe and cup hooks.
