Simple Actions to My Heavenly Father Loves Me

image source

This song is in ASL on the LDS church website. I looked at it and thought to myself that for me, I would need something a little more simple, but still ASL inspired. After some revisions and editing down (because my own actions were become quite complicated) this is what I came up with:

Whenever I hear the sound of a bird BIRD SIGN
Or look at the blue blue sky BLUE SIGN
Whenever I feel the rain on my face RAIN SIGN
Or the wind as it rushes by WIND SIGN
Whenever I touch a velvet rose HAND TOUCHES HAND (perhaps in a small circle motion)
Or walk by a lilac tree FLOWER then TREE
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world WORLD SIGN
Heavenly Father created for me *HEAVENLY FATHER / ME (thumbs point to self)

He gave me my Eyes that I might see POINT TO EYES
The color of butterfly wings BUTTERFLY SIGN
He game me my Ears that I might hear POINT TO EARS
The magical sound of things MUSIC SIGN
He gave me my Live, my Mind, my Heart LIFE SIGN /POINT TO HEAD / HAND ON HEART
I thank Him reverently THANK-YOU SIGN
For all his creations of which I’m a part “ALL” SIGN
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me LOVE (cross arms), THUMBS POINT TO SELF

*I am going to do the action for Heavenly Father as a "double Father" sign that goes up to Heaven and then fades into pointing to yourself with your thumbs. That's sort of what it looks like in the My Heavenly Father Loves Me ASL video on the LDS church websiteThe ASL sign for Heavenly Father is up for debate. This link will take you to a Yahoo Question to learn more, but note that the last link is not affiliated with myself or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.


  1. Thank you, thank you thank you! This is so wonderful. My primary president requested that we learn this song in sign language this year. I have watched the ASL video from the LDS website several times and I was in tears trying to figure out how to teach it to the kids. I am so grateful that you shared your idea. I think it is perfect! You are an answer to my prayers!

  2. Oh wow, Mia, your words touch my heart. I'm glad you found this helpful. Have a great day!
