“I Know Heavenly Father Loves Me” is the first music video by the Rexburg Children Choir. This children’s choir in Southeastern Idaho is only a few months old and includes children from ages 6-18.
The setting of this music video illustrates the message of this favorite LDS Primary song by showing the beauty of the earth.
Choir director Ben Watson recently moved to Rexburg to teach at BYU-Idaho. “I moved here in January and I was looking for a choir for my kids. I couldn’t find one so I thought I would start one,” he explained. When he announced the choir would be starting, he expected that a few dozen children might show up. But at the first rehearsal, he had over 100 children.
Lyrics to this favorite LDS Primary song:
1. Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by our lilac tree,
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heav’nly Father created for me.
2. He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him rev’rently
For all his creations, of which I’m a part.
Yes, I know Heav’nly Father loves me.
