Posting Words


One of my best singing time helps is posting the words to almost EVERY song we sing (opening, closing, birthday, welcome, scripture songs, singing time, etc.).  I sing a wide variety of songs in the Children's Songbook, many of which are unfamiliar to most of the primary (sometimes myself included!).  So to make sure I'm not up singing a solo every Sunday, I post the words to most songs (unless it is a very familiar one or we're working on memorizing it as part of our activity).  I can't tell you how many times the teachers have mentioned how much they appreciate having the words available - they will actually sing!

TIP:  If posting words isn't feasible in your primary room for whatever reason, try purchasing several handheld songbooks for the kids to share.  I also have a fun activity that utilizes these songbooks HERE.

All the songs we sing on a particular Sunday, I keep in my Singing Time Binder and rotate them out each week as needed.  You can find more details on the binder HERE.  When not in use, I save them in my files and pull them out the next time we sing the song.  I do like to write with a pencil the song title, what verse and page number on the backside for reference when necessary.  You can find more details on my filing system HERE.

To post the words I simply flip my binder over the back of my music stand and the words face out to the Primary that I've placed in sheet protectors.  I like the non-glare best, like these from Amazon:


I'll be honest, I do this during the Primary Program too!  The congregation has no idea the kids are using words and each little pair of reading eyes is on me.  And it's not because the majority kids haven't memorized the words (because trust me, we do our best to memorize everything).  We usually have a few semi-active kids show up for the program and this way, they are still able to participate.  I have also had comments from the congregation that they cannot believe how the children all have their eyes on me ;).

Below is a list (in progress) of all the words I type up (please let me know if you ever find mistakes!).  I'll continue to add to it as I get more into this format.  If there is a song you need and I don't have it here (make sure you are searching for the correct name of the song first)leave a comment and I'll get my list updated asap!

Is Happy Family on "Posting Words"?

PauloGardner said...

Camille, this is such a useful tool, thank you!

I wasn't able to find "I Have A Family Tree"

Thank you!

Meredith Gardner

Camille Hill said...

Hi Robyn,

Happy Family is entitled "A Happy Family" so it's under the "A" section. Hopefully you can find it now :).

~Camille

Camille Hill said...

Hi PauloGardner,

I just added "I Have a Family Tree." Thank you for helping me add it!

~Camille

Unknown said...

Hi Camille, I just wanted to let you know that Tell Me, Dear Lord is missing the link. Thanks for all you do. You make my life so much easier and I excel at my calling thanks to your wonderful ideas.

Unknown said...

Thank you for all your hard work and fabulous ideas!! I see "Tell Me, Dear Lord" but can't click on it to print the words. Just wondering if you could fix the link. Thank you!!!!

Camille Hill said...

I’m out of town but I was able to get the link from my phone here:

Hopefully it works. Sorry about that! I’ll get the link updated as soon as I get home

Unknown said...

Thank you sooo much!!!

Unknown said...

Thank you for providing this resource. The past two years I have slowly been adding to my collection. I sat down Sunday with the new curriculum songs and made a list of those I didn't have. I am hoping you will soon add Hymns 140, Did you Think to Pray, Hymn 191 Behold the Great Redeemer Die and Hymn 136 I Know that My Redeemer Lives. These were listed in the songs for 2019 and I would love to keep the same formatting but if you are too busy that is totally understandable and I will continue to appreciate all you've done thus far.

Camille Hill said...

Hi Unknown!

I've got those 3 hymns added! Thank you for letting me know my list is all complete for 2019!

~Camille

chadandash said...

Such a great idea! Post the words!! So simple yet so affective.

We are singing "If I were a Shepherd" and "Angels we have heard on high" I would love to have these words in your format if possible.

Camille Hill said...

Hi chadandash,

I've added Angels We Have Heard on High. If you can get me the lyrics for If I Were a Shepherd, that would be helpful as it's not in the Children's Songbook or Hymn Book. Thanks!

~Camille

Coralee said...

Thank you for these! I found another one - Joy to the World. Do you mind doing words for those? Thanks so much!

Coralee said...

I would also like If I Were A Shepherd. Here is a link to the music...https://app.luminpdf.com/viewer/Ru2Z4Xrh8vXG3nXGN

Camille Hill said...

Hi Coralee,

I've added Joy to the World and If I Were A Shepherd (by Stephanie Adams). The link you posted didn't work so this version is what I found. I hope it's correct.

~Camille

Coralee said...

Thank you so much, Camille!

Unknown said...

Hi Camille~
I cannot find the link with the three new hymns you mentioned you added for 2019. I was looking under the letter for each one (D- Did you think to Pray, B- Behold the Great Redeemer Die and I- I Know that My Redeemer Lives. Any help on where to go would be appreciated.
THANKS A MILLION
Miranda

Camille Hill said...

Hi Unknown!

Oh my! I added them on my "Index" tab instead of here under my "Posting Words" tab. I've changed it. Thank you for helping me correct my mistake!! I wonder about myself sometimes!

~Camille

Blatter said...

Could you add Sing A Song? I would make my own, but I am a little OCD with fonts, and I want it to match the others perfectly. :)

Camille Hill said...

Hi Blatter,

I've got it added, thanks!!

~Camille

Blatter said...

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coralee said...

Hi Camille, Do you happen to have Silent Night words? Thank you!

Camille Hill said...

Hi Coralee!

I've added Silent Night...thanks!!

~Camille

Coralee said...

Thank you!
