15 Awesome Christian Songs for Kids

by Pamela Rose Williams on October 25, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

Singing with children is one of the best ways for them to be motivated to learn. Not only that, it is a good way to get exercise too.  There are many Christian songs for kids that I learned as a child. We sang these Christian songs in school, on the playground, at home and at special events like Vacation Bible School or day camp.  It has been my honor to be the music director for several VBS events and I both taught and learned songs with the children.  Choosing just fifteen awesome Christian songs for kids was a challenge because there are so many good ones out there.  See if you know any of the ones I chose and share your own favorites in the comments below. Teach them to your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Featured Song:

You Reap What You Sow (Ron Hamilton) There are many children’s materials and children’s clubs available in churches today, but my favorite has to be the music club called “Patch the Pirate”. The Club is the brain child of Ron Hamilton, who when he was twenty-seven years old lost his eye to cancer. The doctor gave him a patch for the missing eye and soon kids began calling him “Patch the Pirate”. Since that time Ron Hamilton has been writing songs for Patch the Pirate clubs in churches and on radio. The radio ministry is said to be the third largest children’s religious programming outreach as recognized by National Religious Broadcasters. [1] One of my favorite songs is entitled “You Reap What You Sow”. This song, based upon the text from Galatians 6:7, was one that we used in a couple of our churches for Vacation Bible School. The VBS that I recall the most was when we did a theme of Australia and used the music from Patch the Pirate’s “Down Under” program. The day that I introduced this song was the day that the children learned all about sowing and reaping/planting and growing. We had lessons from our favorite deacon, who happened to be a science teacher too. We were in the heartland of Ohio where gardening and farming is plenty, so we even took a walk over to the parsonage (next door to the church) to see my garden and show and tell how those plants started with a seed (that’s my garden of that year in the upper right of this page). This helped the children to understand the concept of sowing and reaping and then to understand the idea behind the daily Bible memory verse … Galatians 6:7, of course. You can listen to the whole song at this link: Sowing and Reaping

Songs with Actions:

Deep And Wide (Writer Unknown)

This song is sung with actions and each verse replaces one more word with “hmmm”, yet you still do the action, like this:

Deep (one hand above the other with arms stretched up and down)
and wide (arms stretched wide apart)
there’s a fountain (arms motion like a fountain)
flowing deep (same motion of arms stretched up and down)
and wide (same motion with arms stretched wide apart)

Next verse replace “deep” with “hmmm” continuing all motions, and so on. Sing along with this one on the video below:

Father Abraham (Writer Unknown)

This is another song that is done with actions.  Actions are listed at the bottom of the lyrics.

Lyrics:

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm, right foot!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm, right foot, left foot!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm, right foot, left foot, Chin up!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm, right foot, left foot, Chin up, turn around!

Father Abraham had many sons
Many sons had Father Abraham
I am one of them and so are you
So let’s all praise the Lord. Right arm, left arm, right foot, left foot, Chin up, turn around, sit down!

ACTIONS:
Right arm: Clench fist, bend and extend arm upward repeatedly throughout song
Left arm: Add left arm in same motion as right
Right foot: Add right foot stepping up and down
Left foot: Add left foot stepping up and down
Chin up: Add head nodding up and down
Turn around: Add turning in place while continuing other motions
Sit down:Sit down

I’m In The Lord’s Army (Writer Unknown)

This is a fun song and the kids just love doing the actions to this one. I list the actions after the lyrics here. You need some room between the kids for this one because when they “fly over the enemy” they will have their arms out stretched.

Lyrics:

I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never fly o’er the enem
y
But I’m in the Lord’s army (Yes, sir!)

I’m in the Lord’s army (Yes, sir!)
I’m in the Lord’s army (Yes, sir!)

I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never fly o’er the enemy
But I’m in the Lord’s army (Yes, sir!)

ACTIONS:
March in the infantry: march in place
Ride in the cavalry: hands like holding a horses reins and move up and down as if riding a horse
Shoot in the artillery: move hands with straight arms to slap each other while pushing right hand forward
Fly over the enemy: arms straight out and imitate a plane flying
Yes, sir!: salute

Only A Boy Named David (Arthur Arnott)

I must say of all the songs I ever led for Bible school, this is the one that the kids loved the best! They can imagine a little boy using a sling shot to kill a giant. Actions for the words follow the lyrics. Leave lots of room for the kids to swing their sling shot (imaginary, of course)

Lyrics:

Only a boy named David
Only a little sling
Only a boy named David
But he could pray and sing
Only a boy named David
Only a rippling brook
Only a boy named David
But five little stones he took.

And one little stone went in the sling
And the sling went round and round
And one little stone went in the sling
And the sling went round and round
And round and round And round and round
And round and round and round
And one little stone went up in the air
And the giant came tumbling down.

ACTIONS:
On the chorus: And one little stone went in the sling : pretend to put stone in sling
And the sling went round and round: twirl sling overhead round and round (continuing)
And one little stone went up in the air: motion like releasing stone from sling
And the giant came tumbling down: everyone falls to the ground

Counting, Spelling & Echo Songs

A-B-C-D-E-F-G Jesus Died for You and Me (Unknown)

Lyrics:

A-B-C-D-E-F-G,
Jesus died for you and me
H-I-J-K-L-M-N,Jesus died for sinful men, AMEN!
O-P-Q-R-S-T-U,

A home eternally.

The B-I-B-L-E (Unknown)

Lyrics:

The B-I-B-L-E
Yes, that’s the book for me
I stand alone on the Word of God
The B-I-B-L-E

The B-L-O-O-D
That Jesus shed for me;
Christ paid the price,
our sacrifice
The B-L-O-O-D!

I’m S-A-V-E-D,
By G-R-A-C-E;
I’m saved by grace,
the Scripture says
The B-I-B-L-E!

O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E (Unknown)

Although this song is effective without any actions at all, it is fun to teach the children to sign the letters to O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E with their hands. Go to this link for a good chart on what the American Sign Language finger spelled alphabet looks like: ASL Alphabet

Lyrics:

Obedience is the very best way,
to show that you believe.
Doing exactly what the Lord commands,
doing it happily.

Action is the key – do it immediately,
joy you will receive.
Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.

Chorus: O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E
Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.
We want to live pure we want to live clean.
We want to do our best.
Sweetly submitting to authority,
leaving to God the rest.

Walking in the light,
keep our attitudes right.
On the narrow way.
For if you believe the Word you receive,
You always will obey. (repeat Chorus)

Oh, You Can’t Go to Heaven (Unknown)

Sort of a silly song. Try this one by splitting the group into two team. Do the song the first time with Team A singing the lead and Team B doing the echos (echo is in the parenthesis). The switch it up, this time Team B singing the lead and Team A doing the echos. Nothing like a little friendly competition, consider an extra 5 minutes of play time for the group that out sings the other!

Lyrics:

Oh, you can’t get to heaven  (Oh, you can’t get to heaven)
On roller skates  (On roller skates)
‘Cause you’d roll right by (‘Cause you’d roll right by)
Those pearly gates (Those pearly gates)

Oh you can’t get to heaven
On roller skates
‘Cause you’d roll right by
Those pearly gates
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

Oh, you can’t get to heaven (Oh, you can’t get to heaven)

‘Cause a rocking chair (‘Cause a rocking chair)

I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more.

Oh you can’t get to heaven (Oh you can’t get to heaven)

Ten Little Angels

This one is sung to the tune of “Ten Little Indians”. It was adapted by Terry Kluytmans.

Lyrics:

One little, two little, Three little angels,
Four little, five little, Six little angels,
Seven little, eight little, Nine little angels,
Ten little angels in a band.

Listen to them play On Sunday morning,
Listen to them play On Sunday morning,
Listen to them play On Sunday morning,
Ten little angels in a band.

Won’t you sing along This Sunday morning?
Won’t you sing along This Sunday morning?
Won’t you sing along This Sunday morning,
with the Ten little angels in the band.

One little, two little, Three little angels,
Four little, five little, Six little angels,
Seven little, eight little, Nine little angels,
Ten little angels in a band.

Just Fun Songs

The Crayon Box Song (Williams V. Mason)

Lyrics:

When I was just a little boy (girl) No higher than your knee,
My mother bought a box of crayons, Just for me.
I picked them up, I opened them up I looked way down inside,And the colors there reminded me Of Jesus when He died.

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown’s for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who’s afraid to tell.

I colored and I colored ‘Til the crayons were all gone,
But though I am much older now, The mem’ry lingers on.
And when I see a little child With crayon box in hand,
I tell them what they mean to me And hope they’ll understand.

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown’s for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who’s afraid to tell.

Afraid to tell of a Savior Who died on Calvary,
Who died for lowly sinners Just like you and me;
And someday He is coming back To be our King,
And the colors in the crayon box We will sing!

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown’s for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown’s for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who’s afraid to tell.
Yellow is for the Christian who’s afraid to tell.
Yellow is for the Christian who’s afraid to tell.

I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy (George Willis Cooke)

Lyrics:

I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart (Where?)
Down in my heart! (Where?)
Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy Down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay.

And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart
And I’m so happy So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.

I’ve got the love of Jesus,
love of Jesus
Down in my heart (Where?)
Down in my heart! (Where?)
Down in my heart!
I’ve got the love of Jesus,
love of Jesus
Down in my heart (Where?)
Down in my heart to stay.

And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart
And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.

I’ve got the peace that passes understanding
Way down in the depths of my heart! (Where?)
Down in the depths of my heart! (Where?)
Down in the depths of my heart!
I’ve got the peace that passes understanding
Way down in the depths of my heart!
Down in my heart to stay

And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart
And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.

And if the Devil doesn’t like it He can sit on a tack! (Ouch!)
Sit on a tack! (Ouch!)
Sit on a tack!
And if the Devil doesn’t like it He can sit on a tack! (Ouch!)
Sit on a tack to stay!

And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart
And I’m so happy
So very happy
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.

Michael, Row The Boat Ashore (Unknown)

I used to sing this one with my sisters and our friends when we were little girls. I always wondered who “Michael” was. I guess he is the Captain!

Lyrics:

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

My brothers and sisters are all aboard,
Hallelujah
My brothers and sisters are all aboard, Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide,
Hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

Jordan’s river is chilly and cold,
Hallelujah
Chills the body but warms the soul, Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

Rise & Shine (Unknown)

This was one we sang at every Girl Scout overnight camping trip that we had. It would always begin with the Leader singing it early in the morning when it was time to awake. This song is also known as “The Arky Arky Song” and “Children of the Lord”.

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Rise and shine
And give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine
And give God the glory, glory
Rise and shine
And give God the glory, glory
Children of the Lord

The Lord said to Noah: There’s gonna be a floody, floody
The Lord said to Noah: There’s gonna be a floody, floody
Get those children out of the muddy, muddy
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

So Noah He built him, he built him an arky, arky
Noah He built him, he built him an arky, arky
Built it out of gopher barky, barky
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

The animals, the animals, They came in by twosie, twosies
The animals, the animals, They came in by twosie, twosies
Elephants and kangaroosie, roosies
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

It rained and poured For forty daysie, daysies
It rained and poured For forty daysie, daysies
Nearly drove those animals crazy, crazies,
Children of the Lord (repeat Chorus)

The sun came out and dried up the landy landy
The sun came out and dried up the landy landy
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

The animals they came off They came off by three-sies three-sies
Animals they came off They came off by three-sies three-sies
Grizzly bears and chimpanzee-sies zee-sies
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

That is the end of, The end of my story, story
That is the end of, The end of my story, story
Everything is hunky dory, dory
Children of the Lord (repeat chorus)

Zacchaeus (Unknown)

Straight from the Scriptures, this song about the tax collector — a wee little man — is taken from Luke 19:2-6.

Lyrics:

Zacchaeus was a wee little man
And a wee little man was he
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
For the Lord he wanted to see
And as the Savior passed that way
He looked up in that tree
And He said,
“Zacchaeus, you come down!
For I’m going to your house today For I’m going to your house to stay”

I leaned the Christian Alphabet song while attending Good News Club in the 70′s. It might be Child Evangelism Fellowship song…
We also loved singing it backwards!

Saved Everyday of The Week ( unknown)
(1) On Sunday I am happy.
On Monday full of joy.
On Tuesday I have peace within that
nothing can destroy.
On Wednesday and on Thursday I’m
walking in the Light.
Oh Friday is a heaven below
and Saturday is always bright.
(Chorus) Oh glory, glory, glory; Oh glory
to the Lamb. Oh hallelujah I am
saved and I ‘ m so glad I am. Oh glory,
glory, glory; Oh glory t o the Lamb
Oh hallelujah I saved. I’m bound for
The heavenly land.

(2) I’m happy in the morning. I’m happy
all the day. I’ m happy when the clouds
are grey and when the skies ate blue.
I’ll tell you why I shout and sing; for
He took my sins away.
( chorus)

I just got back from Camp Lu Jo Kismif in oklahoma and there we sang one of my favorite little kid Christian songs. The little kids love it and love to try to pretend to be some thing else. it is called down by the river. There are for different ways to sing it and you sing the ways in order. The first is boy, or normal, the second is girly girl, the third is old grandpa, and the last is baby. Which ever way you are singing at the time, you need to talk like that person would. The leader of the song says the like like the person that they are trying to sound like and the children repeat.

down by the river
I took a little walk
Met up with the devil
We had a little talk (for the girl version it’s ‘chat’)
I pushed him in the river
Boy version:I hung him on my line girl version: I hit him with my purse Grandpa version: I hit him with my hover round Baby version: I hit him with my diaper
We can beat the devil
*shout really loud we can beat the devil*
Any old time
Ha-ha-ha-ha-hooooooo

(then do the next part)

Thanks fir reading hope you liked it!!!!

Jesus and others and you,
What a wonderful way to spell joy.
Jesus and others and you,
In the life of each girl and each boy.
“J” is for Jesus, for He has first place,
“O” is for Others, we meet face to face.
“Y” is for You, and whatever you do,
Put yourself third and spell JOY.

I have it in a songbook called “Hymns and Choruses to Remember” published by A Beka Book Publications – Pensacola Christian College, Pensacola, FL.

Certainly pushing my own barrow but I’d love to point people interested in kids’ Christian music to my own songs on my three CDs, JAM, GO GO GO and THUMBS UP. I think you’ll find them refreshingly easy to listen to (for young and older alike) and full of strong Biblical lyrics on a wide range of themes. Check them out on ITunes

Here is one that is sung to the tune of “Wheels on the Bus”

Noah saw the Water

(to the tune of Wheels on the Bus)

D A D
The raindrops fell down from the sky, from the sky, from the sky
D A D
The raindrops fell down from the sky, all around the world

Noah saw the water go up up up, up up up, up up up
Noah saw the water go up up up, all around the world

The arc on the water went rock rock rock, rock rock rock, rock rock rock
The arc on the water went rock rock rock, all around the world

The dove flew away and found a leaf, found a leaf, found a leaf
The dove flew away and found a leaf, all around the world

The water on the earth went down down down, down down down, down down down
The water on the earth went down down down, all around the world

God put a rainbow in the sky, in the sky, in the sky
God put a rainbow in the sky, all around the world

God put his love around us all, around us all, around us all
God put his love around us all, all around the world

Looking for the words to an old kids song:
STOP and let me tell you what the Lord has done.

Hi Joanne, the following are the lyrics to “Stop, and Let Me Tell You.” Hope this helps! :)
“Stop: And let me tell you, what the Lord has done for me!
Stop: And let me tell you what the Lord has done for me!
He forgave my sin and He saved my soul.
He cleansed my heart and He made me whole.
Stop: and let me tell you, what the Lord has done for me.”

Years ago I learned a second verse for the song Zacchaeus. It goes like this:
Zacchaeus was a happy little man and a happy man was he,
For he had seen the Lord that day, and a very happy man was he.
And a very happy man was he!

Vivian,
Do you mean this one?:

“Go; and tell the story, of the Christ of Calvary,
Go; and tell the story, of the Christ of Calvary,
He’ll forgive their sin, He will save their souls,
He’ll cleanse their hearts, He will make them whole,
Go; and tell the story, of the Christ of Calvary.”

Hi

A comment that I often get is, “It’s hard to find good worship music for preschooler and/or grade school kids”. Singin’ Praise Tots and Singin’ Praise Kids is fun and interactive praise and worship music designed (and tested) for ages 2 to 5 year olds (tots) and 6 to 12 year olds (kids). Check us out at: http://www.singinpraisekids.com

Thanks,

Thank you for these. They remind me of growing up in my grandfathers small country church. I am a Specialist in the Army and am currently deployed in Afghanistan at the moment. My fellow comrades and I love to sing these during our marches around our camp. I was wondering if anyone knows the lyrics to a song with thw words abundant life abundantly in it. Thank you in advance and God Bless!!

When we were looking planning a service with young children with “foundations” as the topic, I re-arranged the childrens TV tune of Bob the builder to God the builder!
Using the Disciples names in modern speach form worked well. The theme “God the builder can he fix it?” YES HE CAN!
I found all age groups liked it !!

God the Builder

God the builder,
Can he fix it?
God the builder,
Yes he can

John, Pete and Andy,
James and Matthew too
Simon, James & Judas Join Bartholomew.

Thomas, Phil and Thaddeus,
Having lots of fun,
Joining together
To get the job done

God the builder,
Can he fix it?
God the builder,
Yes he can!

I have a couple :)

(this one is a chant, stomp once with each foot and then clap)
We are the mini disciples
we all read our bibles
we open our hearts every day
to hear what God has to say!

(this one you jump up and act all scary when the word “boogeyman” appears)
God is bigger than the BOOGEYMAN
He is bigger than Godzilla and the monster on tv
Yes God is bigger than the BOOGEYMAN and he’s watching over you and me.
(this is a Veggie tales song, heres the tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Jd4qnxj7D0
go to :40 and thats when the part I put up here starts, we don’t sing the whole song usually)

This was always a favorite for Sunday school and VBs. start slow and each time you repeat, increase in tempo. I am a C. I am a C-H. I am a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N and I have C-H-R-I-S-T in my H-E-A-R-T and I will L-I-V-E E-T-E-R-N-A-L-L-Y.

Thanks for the songs, you have made this a lot easier for me… I am leading in children’s praise on Sunday, and I knew most of these songs, but had forgotten most of them, long time since I was in Sunday school…. God the builder is adorable, I will definitely be teaching the kids that one on Sunday!!!!

I have enjoyed reading this page. Great reminder of songs from way back.
Here is another bible song to the tune of BINGO

God gave us a special book, the Bible is its name o
B-I-B-L-E, B-I-B-L-E, B-I-B-L-E,
The Bible is its name o
(drop a letter and clap in place of the letter until you clap all the letters. Variation drop the letters from back to front)

We always sang the “I am a C, I am a C-H I am a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N” singh ending with “and I will L-O-V-E love him til the end”

We sang that one growing up, but we ended it with “and I will L-O-V-E E-T-E-R-N-A-L-L-Y”
One of my favourites :)

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

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!

Also…
1, 2, 3 the devil’s after me
4,5,6 he’s always throwing sticks
7,8,9 he misses every time
Hallelujah, hallelujah, I’m fee!

9,8,7 I’m on my way to heaven
6,5,4 my cup is running o’er
3,2,1 the vict’ry I have won
Hallelujah, hallelujah, I’m free!

There was song I heard on the radio about 15 years ago about Moses and Children of Israel crossing the Red Sea. All I can remember is part of the chorus and it goes like this:
When you come to the Red Sea trials in your life
There is no going around; There is no going back;
The only is through
So go down; Down into the sea;
and come out on the other side free

If someone knows the title to this song and where I can get a
copy I will be very grateful.
