Christmas is a Time of Joy - Christmas Songs for Kids

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

I have always found this a problem so I am sharing songs on the blog that I have used with children and providing you with

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

(chords also available)

(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.  

There will also be links for PDF's Fred has created for the words and chords. 

This month I am taking the theme of


The song I have chosen is 

Christmas is a Time of Joy

Everyone knows the tune of Jesus Loves Me so that means this will be an easy song to learn.

Many many years ago we worked with CEF Good News Clubs and this was one of the Christmas songs they gave us visuals for and so we learned a simple jolly song for kids and have used it in different kids meetings in schools and churches and homes for several years. 

We are planning to take this as one of the 2 Kids Christmas Songs that will be included in our second

 Songs for Christmas 

Last year Fred & I went live on Facebook each night to get our friends and followers to sing 
Christmas Songs with us and have a little laugh as things don't always go as planned 
or we just had a happy memory of a song.
And plans are in progress for the same this year.

You can see all those live videos plus other post and videos at


This is the verse

and then we would flip it over for the chorus printed on the back


In later years with more opportunity to use projection on screens I designed powerpoints and pictures 

You can Download a copy of these two pictures for printing out HERE 


Christmas is a time of Joy
Not because of gifts and toys
But because God gave His Son
To redeem us everyone

Yes God has given
Yes God has given
Yes God has given
His Son for you and me.

You can Download a copy of these words with chords for guitar and piano HERE


We don't use actions in this one except to clap in the second part of the song.


 You can find the recording of this song on the video below from 

I believe this was written by someone in Child Evangelism Fellowship many years ago but I don't think it is available as a printed song by them now.   

I Hope you enjoy the song and this is a help to you.
