Apostles (to the tune of "Jesus Loves Me")

Jesus called them one by one, Peter, Andrew, James and John,
Next came Philip, Thomas, too, Matthew and Bartholomew.

James the one they called the less, Simon, also Thaddeus,
The twelfth apostle Judas made, Jesus was by him betrayed.

Yes, Jesus called them, Yes, Jesus called them,
Yes, Jesus called them, The Bible tells me so.

Optional Additional Verse Submitted by Reader
Matthias then took Judas' place
To preach to men of every race.

Paul three preaching trips did make
And went to Rome for Jesus' sake.

My God is so Great

My God is so great, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do.
My God is so great, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do.

The mountains are his, the rivers are his, the stars are His handiwork, too.
My God is so great, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do, for you!

Jesus Loves Me**
Jesus loves me
, this I know, For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.
Jesus loves me, He who died, Heaven's gates to open wide,
He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.   

Jesus loves me, loves me still, Though I'm very weak and ill,
From His shining throne on high, Comes to watch me where I lie.

If you're happy and you know it

If you're happy

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands,
If you're happy and you know it, then your life will surely show it,
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!

Oh! The B-I-B-L-E,
Yes that's the book for me.
I stand alone on the word of God,

Cleansed me from sin,
I belong to him,

The wise man built his house upon the rock

The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
And the rains came tumbling down!

The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the rock stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
And the rains came tumbling down!

The rains came down and the floods came up,
The rains came down and the floods came up,

And the house on the sand went SPLAT!

So build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ,
So build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ,
Build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ
and the Blessings will come down.

The blessings will come down as your prayers go up,
The blessings will come down as your prayers go up,
The blessings will come down as your prayers go up,
So build your house on the Lord!

Zacchaeus was a wee little man

Zacchaeus was a wee little man, and a wee little man was he.
He climbed up in a sycamore tree, for the Lord he wanted to see.
And as the Savior passed him by, He looked up in the tree,
And he said, "Zacchaeus, you come down from there;
For I'm going to your house today, for I'm going to your house today"

Zacchaeus came down from that tree, as happy as he could be,
He gave his money to the poor, and said: "What a better man I'll be."

Only a Little Boy David


Only a boy named David, Only a little sling,
Only a boy named David, but he could pray and sing...

Only a little boy David, Only a babbling brook.
Only a little boy David, and five little stones he took.

One little stone went into the sling, and the sling went round and round. One little stone went into the sling, and the sling went round and round.

Round and round, and round, and round, and round, and round, and round. One little stone went up, up, up, and the giant came tumbling down.

There's a Father up above, looking down in tender love,
So be careful little eyes, what you see.
Be careful little ears what you hear
Be careful little mouth what you say...
Be careful little hands, what you touch...
Be careful little feet, where you go...

Jesus loves the little children**

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world; Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight; Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Jesus died for all the children,
All the children of the world; Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight; Jesus died the little children of the world.

Jesus rose for all the children,
All the children of the world; Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight; Jesus arose the little children of the world.

To be careful what they do; Honor father, mother dear
Keep their hearts so full of cheer; Then he'll take them home to glory by and by.

Jesus Walks on the Water
(Tune: Ten Little Indians)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

All the apostles were in a sailboat
All the apostles were in a sailboat
All the apostles were in a sailboat
Out on the deep blue sea.

The waves rose high and tossed the sailboat
The waves rose high and tossed the sailboat
The waves rose high and tossed the sailboat
Out on the deep blue sea.

Along came Jesus walking on the water
Along came Jesus walking on the water
Along came Jesus walking on the water
Out on the deep blue sea.

The apostles thought that Jesus was a ghost
The apostles thought that Jesus was a ghost
The apostles thought that Jesus was a ghost
And they cried out in fear.

Be of good cheer, it is I, don't be afraid
Be of good cheer, it is I, don't be afraid
Be of good cheer, it is I, don't be afraid
Jesus spoke to them

Peter started walking on the water
Peter started walking on the water
Peter started walking on the water
Then he started to sink.

Jesus helped Peter get back in the boat
Jesus helped Peter get back in the boat
Jesus helped Peter get back in the boat
Why did you lose faith?

Alternate Version from reader
(Tune: Ten Little Indians)

Peter, James & John in a sailboat
Peter, James & John in a sailboat
Peter, James & John in a sailboat
Out on the deep blue sea

Fished all night but they caught no fishes
Fished all night but they caught no fishes
Fished all night but they caught no fishes
Out on the deep blue sea

Along came Jesus walking on the water
Along came Jesus walking on the water
Along came Jesus walking on the water
Out on the deep blue sea

Now their boats are full of fishes
Now their boats are full of fishes
Now their boats are full of fishes
Out on the deep blue sea

Five Loaves and Two Fishes

lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

One little boy shared his lunch
One little boy shared his lunch
One little boy shared his lunch
And Jesus fed five thousand

Five little loaves and two little fishes
Five little loaves and two little fishes
Five little loaves and two little fishes
Jesus fed five thousand.

Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Then passed it to the apostles.

Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
And there were still leftovers.

Twelve basketfuls were left over
Twelve basketfuls were left over
Twelve basketfuls were left over
After each had eaten.

The Prodigal Son
(Tune: Little Rabbit in the Woods)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

Once a father had two sons
Then one left home to have some fun
The son wasted all he had
Then things got real sad
Feed me! Feed me!"
The pigs all said.
The young son thought,
This is really bad.
I'll go home say sorry
And dad's servant I'll be."

Oh, the father was so sad
Missed his young son oh so bad
Saw his son a far off
And he ran out the door
the father said
Come back home and I'll be your dad.
Come my son, come on in
Please don't leave again."

The oldest brother had stayed home
Did what he should and he was bummed
The father killed a fatted cow
Why did he do this now?
I stayed! I stayed!" the old son said.
A feast for me you've never had!"
My son was lost but now he's found
So let's let love abound.

Days of Creation
(Tune: This Old Man)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

On day one God made light
Made the difference in day and night
God just spoke the words and it came true
Wonder what else God will do?

On day two Split in two
Skies above the water blue
God just spoke the words and it came to be
What will happen on day three?

On day three God made land
Then he put plants in the sand
God made herbs and grass and fruit on the tree
This was all done on day three

On day four God made lights
Some for days and some for nights
Stars are dim, but the sun and the moon are bright
Aren't you glad that God made lights

On day five God made alive
Fish for the waters and birds for the skies
All the things that swim and birds to fly
These were made on day five

On day six God did fix
Animals, mankind and even ticks
God made lizards, cats, and other things that lick
Animals were created on day six

On day seven God in heaven
Rested from all the work he'd done
He'd made the earth, the stars, the moon, and sun
It was good what God had done

She hid the spies that came from God, with flax upon her roof-o.

But Rahab's house alone was saved upon the wall of Jericho.
She hung a scarlet cord outside because her God had said so.
R-A-H-A-B, R-A-H-A-B, R-A-H-A-B
and Rahab was her name-o.

Because of faith, she has a place in Jesus' family line.

David and the Giant
(Tune: Pop Goes the Weasel) 
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

There once was a giant who wanted to fight
God's chosen people
All were scared and wanted to hide,
Then out came David.

David was a small shepherd,
But he trusted God
He took a sling and five little stones
Down fell the giant.

Joshua Got a Plan from God
(Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down)
lyrics by Kim Dailey, treat lyrics as public domain

Joshua got a plan from God, plan from God, plan from God.
Joshua got a plan from God, Hallelujah!

Israel marched around the wall, 'round the wall, 'round the wall.
Israel marched around the wall, Hallelujah!

Seven priests blew seven horns, seven horns, seven horns.
Seven priests blew seven horns, Hallelujah!

All of Israel gave a shout, gave a shout, gave a shout.
All of Israel gave a shout, Hallelujah!

Jericho's walls came falling down, falling down, falling down.
Jericho's walls came falling down, Hallelujah!

Rahab saved her family, family, family.
Rahab saved her family, Hallelujah!

March ,March Around Jericho
(Tune: Row, Row, Row your Boat)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

March, march quietly
Around Jericho
Once a day for six straight days
Only trumpets blow.

March, march seven times
On the seventh day
When long trumpets blow, let yourself go
And shout the walls away.

(additional verse contributed by Jennifer A.)

March, march through the city
burn it to the ground
save the house of Rahab the pretty
Cuz' faith in God she found.

Here We Go Round the Jericho Wall
(Tune: Mulberry Bush)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome

Here we go round the Jericho wall
Jericho wall, Jericho wall
Here we go round the Jericho wall
Early in the morning

2. This is the way we blow our horns
3. This is the way we quietly walk
4. This is the way we shout really loud
5. This is the way the walls fall down

Frequently Asked Questionsa>

Can you recommend an a cappella recording of children's songs? Unfortunately, I am not personally familiar with any a cappella recordings of these or similar songs. Below are some sources you can try:

A)
A cappella Music at Christian Book Distributors

B) Florida College Bookstore has two children's songs recordings:

1) Each Little Dewdrop
(song titles: Books of the Old Testament, Genesis, When and Who and What Did He Do?, Creation, Pham-i-li-Treez,  Enoch Walked With God, Noah Was A Man of God, The Lord Had a Plan Instead  Exodus  Fire on the Mountain  Leviticus  Numbers  Deuteronomy  Joshua  Judges  Give Us a King!  Elijah Spoke for God  God's Servant Job  God Knows Me  Isaiah's Call  Ezekiel Saw a Vision  The Valley of Dry Bones  Oh, No! Obadiah  Jonah! Jonah!  Baby Jesus Lay in a Manger The Twelve Apostles  Satan Is a Liar  My Sheep Hear My Voice I Am the Way  Eutychus  I Cannot Reach the Stars  We Are Part of God's Plan  Each Little Dewdrop)
 
2) Musical Memory Builders - which sets Bible facts to music for easier recall..

I believe FC only sells a cappella music - I have not personally listened to these recordings. You can access their site at http://bookstore.floridacollege.edu/store/

There is a CD offered at http://www.a-cappella.com/catalog/p_3222c.html which has samples online. From the sound bites, the songs appear to be modern worship songs, with vocally reproduced "instrumental" effects.

C) Helpful reader suggestions

CHILDREN'S SONGS Bible Study Guide For All Ages (2 CD set with about 90 songs), and it was produced by a family of five. Their web site is http://biblestudyguide.com/childrens_songs.htm (song list on their site).

I'M GONNA SING! SONGS FOR YOUNG HEARTS. It has 62 songs and is sung by a group calling themselves Kids of the Woodlands World                         -Praises for Children
                        -Gifts for Jesus (Christmas Narrative) 
You can order them toll free by calling 1-800-398-2494

If you know of an a cappella recording, please let us know.

Do you have any book you recommend?
I do have a book I use to learn the songs, which comes with a recording, as well as melody line sheet music (and guitar chords). It is called Wee Sing Bible Songs and is available through Amazon.com or Christian Book Distributors. I have not done an exhaustive study of recordings or books, so there may be a lot of other great resources.
Are these songs in the public domain or are they copyrighted?
Copyrights are a huge, complex and complicated issue. Please see my disclaimer.

Songs marked with this symbol** are, to my best knowledge, documented as in the public domain, usually by checking the date in cyberhymnal.org. But I could be wrong - and my say so won't hold up in your court case. Also - individual publications, variations, or recordings of these songs can be copyrighted.

For more information on copyrights, see the Library of Congress web site at http://www.loc.govv or the informative web site www.pdinfo.com.
Do you know a song that goes...?
If it's not up here, probably not. But you're still welcome to run it by me. First, try going to www.google.com, type in the phrase you remember, and surround that phrase with quotation marks. You might come up with it. If not, try narrowing the phrase down a bit in case someone else remembers it differently.

Other places to try:

1) Sunday School Teacher's Network is a mailing list of teachers. You can search the archive, or join and ask the list if they know it.

2) Song Search at Christian Book Distributors
Can I send you some songs I have to post on your site?
Sure! Please do. I can't guarantee I can post everything, and I may not get to it immediately. Please don't be discouraged if I'm slow.
*Disclaimer: Recordings of songs and lyrics posted on this site are designed and shared solely in the interest of helping teachers learn the songs to teach to their classes. They are not designed as entertainment or as a way to get around purchasing any copyrighted recordings or publication of songs. The lyrics posted here are from memory and some have been altered.
