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


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


Words   
(chords also available)


Recordings  
(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


CHRISTMAS


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





VISUALS


This is the verse




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











POWERPOINT


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 





WORDS

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.

ACTIONS

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






RECORDING

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






Notes:
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.

Christian Songs for Kids - I Believe the Bible


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 Bible

I thoroughly believe we should teach and encourage children to trust the Bible and to believe in what it tells us about God and Jesus.




The song I have chosen is 



 I Believe the Bible

This is another song that I got to know through Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) when we had a Good News Club in our home before we even had any children ourselves.



It is such a repetitive song so very easy for the children to learn.



The song is full of the basic fundamental things we believe as Christians and should be teaching our children from an early age:


The Bible
Jesus
Salvation for sins
Resurrection
Christ's Return 





VISUAL

My visual is very old but still in good condition because I laminated it and took good care of it over the many many years of use in Kids' clubs and Sunday School etc.


This is a picture of the front of the 5 cards (1 card for each verse)






and here you see the words on the back of each card for the continuation of each verse.




The cards are A4 size and using this type of visual gives me the opportunity to involve 5 children in holding up the cards and turning them around at the appropriate time in each verse.


Where to Buy the Visual:


This version of the visual for the song is no longer available but a newer version can be found HERE at the US CEF Website, unfortunately no version is shown for sale on the UK Website.

Below is a screenshot of the new visual which is more modern and colourful than the original.  





These songs are good value for money and extremely good if you are like me and use them for years in many different places so I would recommend buying from CEF.

Disclaimer: 
 I am not compensated in any way for writing this blogpost it is purely based on my own thoughts and experience so buying from CEF will not benefit me.


NOTE:   The older version has 5 verses but the newer one has more so the words of the new song are slightly different but the tune is the same.





WORDS



I BELIEVE THE BIBLE

I Believe the Bible
I Believe the Bible
I Believe the Bible
It's the Word of God


I Believe in Jesus
I Believe in Jesus
I Believe in Jesus
He's the Son of God

Jesus died for sinners
Jesus died for sinners
Jesus died for sinners
Jesus died for me

Jesus Christ is risen
Jesus Christ is risen
Jesus Christ is risen
He arose for me

Jesus Christ is coming
Jesus Christ is coming
Jesus Christ is coming
In the clouds for me

Christian Songs for Kids - Whisper a Prayer.


Previously I talked about not being able to find many powerpoint presentations to illustrate Christian Songs for Kids.








I had got to the point where I was making my own to use in our Church, Sunday School and an After School Bible Club our church runs in a nearby primary school each Monday.



NOW

I am going to try to share songs with you providing a

This song is in the theme of



 PRAYER

I thoroughly believe we should teach and encourage children to pray.


The song I have chosen is 



 WHISPER A PRAYER

I first got familiar with this song when I got involved in Child Evangelism Fellowship and had a Good News Club in our home before we even had any children ourselves.

I used to have an old circular visual for it (the template was provided by CEF) where there was a circle of card behind another circle which had a sector cut out of it at the top and the two cards were held together by a pin.  The words "Whisper a prayer in"  were written on the front card and also the words "to keep your heart in tune" and as you sang the song you rotated the back circle so that a picture of a rising sun appeared for "morning", a picture of a full sun appeared for "noon" and a picture of a moon came up for "evening".

Recently I designed & made a new (slightly different) visual for it because my old one was so tattered. 



VISUAL




To See a Tutorial of how this visual was made click on the picture above and you will be taken to my other site The Ark Page containing tutorials and other resources for Kids Work.
 

I like to use this song to settle the children down to be ready to pray.

But it can also be used to teach the children about praying regularly each day and linked in with the story of Daniel.






WORDS


WHISPER A PRAYER

Whisper a prayer in the morning
Whisper a prayer at noon
Whisper a prayer in the evening
To keep your heart in tune.


God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
So keep your heart in tune.





ACTIONS

We usually sing this one reverently & quietly without any actions.

RECORDING

My husband likes to experiment with recording music so at different times he has made some recordings for kids songs for me and this is one he made  -  you won't recognize the voices in the recording but you might be able to guess who they belong to.





Special "Thank You" to my husband Fred who looks after the Recordings and the Chords



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



Notes:
As far as I can see the author of this song is listed as anonymous for further details

I did find some info on an arranger of the music see here

If anyone has any further info on this song please let me know.
