I introduced If the Savior Stood Beside Me one week with a Silent Video! The children were completely captivated as they listened and watched this song being presented. I prefer to use music without lyrics for this activity to help introduce the music and welcome the spirit.
If the Savior Stood Beside Me
Find a movie clip you like from the LDS Media Library and play the movie clip on mute. Then, accompany the movie clip with an instrument only or instrument and vocals version of the song, If the Savior Stood Beside Me.
I choose this video of I Stand All Amazed by Vocal Point. The mouth moving was a little off, but the point came across beautifully of recognizing who the Savior was and what it might mean for how we should be and shows that he did everything for us.
There are lots of different clips you could choose to go with it.
I paired it with just a piano version of the song that I downloaded from lds.org. You can look for a pretty piano arrangement or even a vocals arrangement if you’d like to.
Either way, you will just use the audio from the second clip with the video from the first clip. (Unless you find something you love that does both!)
If you find a video or combination you love, let us know in the comments!
Next, see how we’ll be using a Draw the Song activity for If the Savior Stood Beside Me.
