Sing With Me The Story

My friend Aleta wrote some wonderful songs for children and has published them in Sing with Me the Story.  Here is the publisher’s description of the book: “each song serves as a stepping stone through God’s overall plan for mankind; from Creation to living a godly life. We recommend that this hymn book be placed in classrooms and provided for each student, beginning with those who can read and older.”

Aleta is a faithful Christian and experienced Bible class teacher.  I know that any child will be blessed by having this book.  You may order it here.

Thank You God

This song teaches thankfulness for God’s many blessings.  It can be used with different props and pictures depending on the subject upon which you want to focus.

(Tune: Mary had a little lamb)

Thank you God for food to eat, food to eat, food to eat,

Thank you God for food to eat,

You gave me what I need.

(In place of “food to eat,” you can substitute: families to love, flowers that grow, birds that sing, all my toys, books to read, etc.)

Songs about parents & grandparents

Here are some songs that our congregation has used in its baby Bible class for many years.  They were passed down from one mother to the next, so I’m afraid I no longer know who gets credit for them 🙂  But they are tried-and-true and well-loved.  While singing the songs, we show the children pictures of their parents & grandparents, and/or magazine clippings of families, and sometimes little dolls.

God Made Mommy/Daddy

(Tune: Are You Sleeping?)

God made Mommy, God made Mommy,

Yes He did, yes He did,

And we love her, and we love her,

Yes we do, yes we do.

(You can substitute “Daddy/him” in place of “Mommy/her”.  You can also substitute the names of members of the congregation)


Parents Bring Babies to Class

(Tune: The Bear Went Over the Mountain)

Parents bring babies to class,

Parents bring babies to class,

Parents bring babies to class,

Parents know what is best.

(In place of “Parents” you can substitute Mommies, Daddies, Grandmas, Grandpas, etc.)

Be Careful Little Eyes

Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It

(As you sing each verse, point to the body part)

Be careful, little eyes, what you see,

Be careful, little eyes, what you see,

For the Father up above (point to sky)

Is looking down in love (look around with hand shielding eyes)

So be careful, little eyes, what you see.

Be careful, little mouth, what you say…. (proceed as in verse 1)

Be careful, little ears, what you hear…

Be carefeul, little hands, what you do….

Be careful, little feet, where you go….

Be careful, little mind, what you think….

Be careful, little heart, what you love….
