Christmas Song for children - idea #3 - a Shepherds' song

"Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go..."

We're told that when the Shepherds heard about the Messiah being born, "they hurried off..." It was urgent! They wanted to get down to the town, to find the amazing child they'd been told about. Were the angels making it up? There was only one way to find out - get to Bethlehem as soons as they could!

Christmas Songs - idea #1 - a Magi / Wise Men song

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!"

Songs about Miracles: #3 - One Man Said

Maybe your Bible story in Sunday School is a healing miracle, and you're really keen that the children understand: it's because of who Jesus is! It shows us he's the Son of God!

Remember Peter suddenly realising who Jesus is in Matthew 16 (like Mark 8)? "You are the Christ - the Son of the living God" (Mt 16:16) - that's what we're supposed to realise, when we've seen the miracles. Some did - Blind Bartimaeus understood, and called out to Jesus "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!".

"One Man Said" imagines what it must have been like to be healed by Jesus, and, like Blind Bartimaeus, realise exactly who Jesus really is. "One man said: 'He gave me sight when I was so blind, now I can see in the bright sunshine, who could this be with this power so good?' Gave him sight? SON OF GOD!"

There are 4 verses - three miracles, and one verse about our response. Actions / Motions are fairly easy to work out for this one!
