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

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.

This month I am taking the theme of



The Promises of God



The song I have chosen is 



No Never Alone


This is another song that is so very simple but so full of the truth and tells of the comfort God
promised us.

I like to use this song when teaching on Joshua as it ties is well with Joshua 1 v 9 and can be used to to reinforce that as a Memory Verse.

It is also one I would use when teaching on How much God cares for us or not being afraid because God will never leave us.

This is actually the chorus of a hymn and is based on
Matthew 28:20 and Hebrews 13:5

WORDS


No Never Alone

No never alone
No never alone

No never alone
He promised never to leave me
Never to leave me alone.

Waving your forefinger in front of your face in time to the music

RECORDING







Notes:

I believe the Words are the chorus of a hymn whose first verse begins with
"I've seen the lightning flashing"   
Author is  Ludie D. Pickett.

This month I am taking the theme of



The Love of Jesus



The song I have chosen is 



Jesus' Love is Very Wonderful


I think this is another song that I first learnt through Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) which means I have been singing this one for around 40 years.

Kids love to do the actions for this one as it involves clapping and big arm movements.
Another thing we like to do is sing it a few times and then on the last time really speed it up.

Another great teaching tool for explaining to the children that there is nothing that cannot be encompassed by the love of Jesus.

WORDS


JESUS' LOVE IS VERY WONDERFUL

Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Oh Wonderful Love

It's so high you can't get over it
So low you can't get under it
So wide you can't get round it
Oh Wonderful Love

ACTIONS

Jesus' love is very wonderful -  clapping in time to the music
Oh Wonderful Love   -  clapping in time to the music

It's so high you can't get over it  -  Point up repeatedly in time to the music with both hands, arms raised high
So low you can't get under it  -  Reach down and use an underneath motion with both hands repeatedly in time to the music
So wide you can't get around it   -  Swing arms out wide repeatedly in time to the music (making sure that the children are apart enough not to hit each other)
Oh Wonderful Love   -  clapping in time to the music




RECORDING







Notes:

I believe the Words are by H. W. Rattle but the composer is unknown.

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






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 


Visual

Words   
(chords also available)


Recording

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.   

Also don't forget you can go to the side bar on the right (or see the link at the end of this blogpost and sign up for an email reminder of my posts. Then you will know when the next song is posted.



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.
