Christian Songs for Kids - I Will Make You Fishers of Men


Do you find it hard to get visuals and recordings for different kids songs?







I have always found this a problem so I am now sharing songs that I have used with children providing you with



Visuals 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make one) 


Words   
(chords also available)


Recording  
(mp3 or video to learn the song) 


Then if you would like to download the visual of the song there will be a link provided to my creation, or I will direct you to where else you can find it.   



This month I am taking the theme of



 Bible Stories

I thoroughly believe we should teach and encourage children to read the Bible and to grow in faith by knowledge and belief in God's Word.


The song I have chosen is 



 I Will Make You Fishers of Men



This is a song that I learned as a child in Sunday School.



It is taken from the words of Jesus in the Bible and contains good advice for us all.

I like the children to have fun singing and doing the actions of this song.


It is also a good teaching tool.

WORDS


I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN

I will make you fishers of men
Fishers of men, fishers of men
I will make you fishers of men
If you follow me
If you follow me
If you follow me
I will make you fishers of men
If you follow me.



Read your Bible, Pray every day

Pray every day, Pray every day
Read your Bible, Pray every day

If you want to grow.

ACTIONS

First Verse
Act as if you are holding a fishing rod and throw out the fishing line each time you sing "fishers of men"
Use forefinger to indicate coming towards you as you sing "if you follow me"

Second Verse
Hands held together palms up in front of you as you sing "Read your Bible"
Hands held together as in prayer as you sing "Pray every day"

Hold one hand out flat palm facing downwards and lift up in stepping motion as you sing "if you want to grow"

  4. I didn't start Sunday School until I received Jesus into my heart at 16 - so I missed out on most of the good songs. These programs make up new songs - so I'm glad your bring back some of the more traditional ones. I love it. (visiting via BoBBS)
