Search Ponder and Pray Melody Chart
How to Use this Melody Chart:
You can fold down the bottom row of words or leave them visible.
Ask the children to see if they notice any patterns as you sing through the song. Sing the first verse together.
See what they noticed. When they suggest things, such as “I noticed the Hearts” ask what they think the hearts represent. Sing through the verse noticing all the hearts and what words they might stand for.
- Point out that ponder is something we do in our hearts and our minds.
- Ask the children if they think the word “testimony” should be blue like the scriptures. Why or why not?
After going through some of the different colors, you can then tell them to sing ONLY the green circles, or ONLY the colored circles.
Key/Guide to the Melody Chart:
- Red Hearts = Our hearts, emotions and feelings (Love, Feel, Heart, ponder, deep inside).
- Orange = Ourselves, when we are talking about us! (I, My, I’ll)
- Blue = Truth / Scriptures (Holy Scriptures, testimony, they’re and search – both references to the scriptures, Scriptures).
- Yellow = Spirit

Printable Search Ponder and Pray Melody Chart
Being the geeky Word lover that I am, I created a Melody chart that can be easily printed that you can use!
This can be printed to help you make your own much larger version on a poster board, or simply print and post on the whiteboard. I plan to use this just like it is, no poster board required.
You’ll find a bonus printable melody chart for the 2nd verse and even a black and white printable options included in the INSTANT Primary Singing membership when Search, Ponder and Pray is the featured song of the month.
