Then you will know when the next song is posted.



This month I am taking the theme of


 THE LOVE of JESUS



The song I have chosen is 


JESUS LOVES ME


This must be the most well known Christian song for kids.

Based around  Ephesians 3 v 17-18

The first verse and the chorus were written by Anna B. Warner and then other verses were added at two different times later.

When one of my kids was very young they misheard the words and for quite some time they thought that everyone was singing "Tea is weak but He is strong" and we still talk & laugh about that today even though he is now a Pastor.

WORDS

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

ACTIONS

Jesus  -  Simply point and look upwards
Loves me this I know -  Place two hands palms over heart

For the Bible tells me so  -  Bring hands together in front and open them to represent a book

Little ones  -  Hold hand palm down to your side indicating small height

To Him belong  -  Simply point and look upwards
They are weak   -  Flop both arms down by your side
But He  -  Simply point and look upwards
Is strong  -  Make fists with both hands and hold up to represent strength 



VIDEO
