We have been having so much fun singing In My Father’s Hands Singing Time Ideas for our Primary this year. It’s my song pick for Father’s Day and it’s been so well received by the kids, they’ve loved the song!
It’s not one included in the Children’s Songbook, but is available from Blake Gillette Music, if you want to snag your own copy. Of course, it is a song you’ll need to get permission from your bishop to teach and perform since it’s not in the songbook or published in the Friend magazine.
