The Most Beautiful Primary Song You’ve NEVER Heard

Is there anything more beautiful than watching primary children sing truth in a field when the sun is shining?

If so, let me know what it is.

Some talented musicians from One Voice Children’s Choir and the Mapleton LDS Stake teamed up to sing a new Primary song called, “I Will Be What I Believe”, written by Blake Gillette, an orthopedic surgeon in Spanish Fork, Utah.

Blake, an orthopedic surgeon by day, and now a music genius by night, wrote this song after his wife said to him one day, “Hey, you should write a Primary song.” Blake had written a few songs in high school and on his mission, so he decided to try and see if he could arrange a Primary song.

On his website, Blake explains how he came up with the idea for “I Will Be What I Believe”.

“I thought about my favorite stories of the Church: Joseph Smith, the pioneers, the stripling warriors, Nephi, and missionaries. I decided to roll them all up into one great song. At the time, I had also been studying one of my all-time favorite talks: “The Challenge to Become” by Dallin H. Oaks from the October 2000 general conference. He describes that the gospel isn’t about knowing something, but it is in fact about “becoming” something. Then, “I Will Be What I Believe” was born.”

  1. I just played this song for 4 angelic voices at a child’s baptism. It is a truly amazing and beautiful song.

  2. @Dzavy – questions come from all around. Friends, television, different opinions,etc… The gospel is one of answers and peace but we have been told to not blindly follow, but rather seek and find out answers for ourselves. Children and adults both have to address questions as they arise. I myself, a life-long member of the church, found myself with many questions earlier this year that were potentially harmful to my testimony, but this song inspired me to hold on to my faith, and seek for answers through the right channels. I turned to conference talks and the scriptures. I turned my questions to the Lord through fasting and prayer. This song was part of a conversion process for me this summer….and it was that very line “With questions that arise everyday” that validated me in seeking to know more. For me and my family, for investigators of the church, for anyone who wants to draw near to the Savior, I welcome the questions because they are part of seeking truth.

  3. Not sure but I think it says “Even though it’s still hard, with questions that arise. Everyday I will say I’ll have faith like brother Joseph…”

  4. The song is beautiful and gave me goose bumps. I am confused about some of the lyrics which are stopping me from sharing it. Maybe I am just hearing it wrong or misunderstanding but it sounds like the child is questioning the gospel everyday. I think the gospel is about answers not questions. Why would you question something everyday if it was something you believe in? Why would you even try to live what you believe if you have questions about it everyday?
