Sing And Discuss The Hymn "For All The Saints" By William Walsham How
This idea is suitable for children aged over about ten years, teenagers and young adults.
You will need copies of the words of the hymn and a source of music. You could play a CD with a recording of one of the melodies or, preferably, you could ask someone to play the melody on an instrument.
Before the lesson, decide whether you want to sing and/or discuss all of the verses.
During the lesson, allow your pupils to read through the words and ask questions if they do not understand the words or ideas in the hymn. Sing the hymn a couple of times, before working through all of or a selection of the verses. Discuss the meaning of each verse and ask your pupils what they think that William Walsham How was trying to convey when he wrote the hymn.
Finish the lesson by singing the hymn again.
