*27 If the Savior Stood Beside Me Singing Time Ideas*
If the Savior Stood Beside Me Draw the Song
Assign a phrase to each class (5 for JR and 4 for SR Primary).
Give them a simple blank piece of paper with their phrase on the bottom. You can grab my printables at the bottom of this post so this step is super easy!
Have the class work together to draw a picture to signify the song.
I’ll sing through the song a few times while the kids are working on their drawings and have them join me in singing when they’re finished (or sing along while they draw).
Once all the drawings are complete you can display them up on the board and sing through the song with the primary together as a whole.
You can also have the kids come up to tell you about what they drew and how it demonstrates their lyrics.
I loved the kids creativity and seeing what they came up with. For, “Would I follow His example?” the kids had scriptures, church, and being kind as part of their drawings.
After all of your pictures are up on the board, you can have each class sing their drawing only and work your way through the whole song again a second time. All the other classes would sing all of the parts except what the class sings!

Draw the Song Printables
The printables below to help you recreate this If the Savior Stood Beside Me Draw the Song activity make it easy to use in your own Primary! I’ve recently updated this document to include all 3 verses, but I recommend just picking 1 or 2 verses to use for this activity. Each verse is 4 pages long.
You’ll want to print one copy for Junior and another for Senior Primary if you’re split into 2 groups. Then, you can show of each groups custom flip chart the next week!

I love your site, but I often have trouble finding the download link for specific songs. I am trying to find the link to download for the Draw the Song Printables for If the Savior Stood Beside Me. Can you help me please?
Hey Margaret, The PDF printables are always at the very end of the post after all the directions for how to use the activity in singing time. If you’re clicking on earlier text links in the posts, those are to interlink other helpful posts you might also might find useful, but don’t link to the printables. They’re always at the end under the content lock tool. Once you’re logged in you’ll see the file there!
