Scripture

Helaman 14:2-6

And behold, he said unto them: Behold, I give unto you a sign; for five years more cometh, and behold, then cometh the Son of God to redeem all those who shall believe on his name.

And behold, this will I give unto you for a sign at the time of his coming; for behold, there shall be great lights in heaven, insomuch that in the night before he cometh there shall be no darkness, insomuch that it shall appear unto man as if it was day.

Therefore, there shall be one day and a night and a day, as if it were one day and there were no night; and this shall be unto you for a sign; for ye shall know of the rising of the sun and also of its setting; therefore they shall know of a surety that there shall be two days and a night; nevertheless the night shall not be darkened; and it shall be the night before he is born.

And behold, there shall a new star arise, such an one as ye never have beheld; and this also shall be a sign unto you.

And behold this is not all, there shall be many signs and wonders in heaven.

Song

  1. 1. Said Samuel, “Within five years
    A night will be as day,
    And Baby Jesus will be born
    In a land far, far away.”
  2. Hosanna! Hosanna!
    Oh, let us gladly sing.
    How blessed that our Lord was born;
    Let earth receive her King!
  3. 2. Across the sea, in Bethlehem,
    Lord Jesus came to earth
    As Samuel had prophesied,
    And angels sang His birth.
  4. Hosanna! Hosanna!
    Oh, let us gladly sing.
    How blessed that our Lord was born;
    Let earth receive her King!

I made them by cutting some small sticks from bushes in our yard, put some wooden beads on one end with feathers, and cut a triangle shaped piece of drop cloth I had on hand, but you could use burlap as well.
