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 - Good News, Good News


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

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

This month I am taking the theme of



SALVATION




The song I have chosen is 



Good News


Another one that I learnt when I was a teenager and started to help with

This is a short but very to the point song about how salvation is the "Good News" for us.
In a few lines the gospel is presented and the song is so easy to memorize that children very soon have those words etched in their memories telling then that Jesus has died for them.

Of course they all love it when you get to the end and you shout out the word EXTRA.




VISUAL

I have the original fold over card visual which I bought from CEF many years ago and it is still used often in our kid's club in a local school.




Unfortunately I can not find it for sale on the UK CEF website now but a new version with a second verse is available on the US CEF site



More recently I made a powerpoint for projection

WORDS


GOOD NEWS


Good News, Good News,

Christ died for me.
Good News, Good News,
If I believe.
Good News, Good News,
I'm saved eternally.
That's wonderful, EXTRA
Good News

ACTIONS

Very simple for this song.

For the first section of the song we clap
(up to eternally)
Then we cup our hands over our mouth to be able to shout the word
EXTRA in the second part





RECORDING








Notes:
I believe the Words are by O.G. Lewis and the song is in the public domain
but there is also a second verse which is under the copyright of CEF
More information can be found HERE  




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


Words   
(chords also available)


Recording  
(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.   

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 
see here

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.
