If you're planning a Christmas Pageant or Nativity Play, don't forget the Wise Men! Yes, they come at the end of the story, but they're still really important.
Here's a song about the Wise Men that tells the story, brings out some of the meaning, and all with a bit of humour too: "Go-Go-Go-Go Gold!"
Listen to a snippet here:
Even better, here's a YouTube video:
Here's a great Good Friday song for kids. If you're looking for something for children to sing about Good Friday, then you've come to the right place. This song is great for Sunday School, as it mentions three of the most important things about Jesus being crucified and dying on the cross*, and it's easy to sing, and memorable!
* the verses describe the darkness, Jesus cry, and the temple curtain
One of the amazing things about Palm Sunday is the contrast between the humility of riding a donkey, and the majesty of who Jesus really is.
Zechariah 9:9 is a key verse which helps us understand: "Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey..." (this is quoted in the Palm Sunday account in Matthew 21:1-11)
WOW! Time to sing "Hosanna!" How come the high priests were so grumpy?!
The full song is on the Jukebox at MGBT - http://mgbt.co/oMx
"My Little Seed" is now on an official YouTube video, with actions (or what they call 'motions' in the USA)
Here's a harvest song that's great for the younger children at Sunday School, but that the whole church family will love to sing too.
It's about a seed, and how it grows into a big strong plant, and not a weed, thanks to God's help.
It's a very 21st Century Harvest Song, though, reminding us about "the science God has made," and helping the children to see that faith isn't incompatible with facts!
