Christian Songs for Kids - Jesus Loves Me



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



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
