Keep the Commandments Bell Chart

I'm finishing up teaching Keep the Commandments this Sunday (see my original lesson plan HERE) using the handbells on the obbligato portion.  You can see how I use handbells in primary HERE.

This chart is for the obbligato portion, not the melody.  However, I wrote in the words to the melody that coincide with that particular obbligato note.  Clear as mud?  Then, this song only uses the high "C" note.  For my primary, I'll just pass out both "C" notes anyway.  This will give more kids an opportunity to ring a bell.

I plan on using the handbells when we perform this song for our program.  I've used the handbells several times in Sacrament Meeting, as my bishop has approved it.  If you plan to do the same, just make sure you have approval from your bishop as well.

You can download the below chart HERE.

To use the bells in sacrament meeting, the bells will play for both verses.

Are you going to have them play the handbells during both verses?

Hi AngMetcalf,

Great question...yes, the bells will be played during both verses just to keep things simple. I updated my post with that clarification too. Thank you!
