Christian Children’s Songs: 22 Great Ones for Kids

Jun 30, 2013

"I still remember my favorite Bible school teachers singing children’s Bible songs (as they called them), and I grew attached to many of them. I’m sure it was a pleasure for my parents hearing me sing them over and over and over just like a merry-go-round."

I still remember my favorite Bible school teachers singing children’s Bible songs (as they called them), and I grew attached to many of them. I’m sure it was a pleasure for my parents hearing me sing them over and over and over just like a merry-go-round. It’s refreshing to hear little kids sing my favorites during Sunday school.

Here are 22 great Christian children’s songs:

Father Abraham

On the first day God made the light.

He called light "day", and dark-ness "night".

Se-cond day He sep-a-ra-ted wat-ers from on high.

Dare To Be a Daniel

Dare to be a Daniel,

Dare to stand alone;

Dare to have a purpose firm,

Dare to make it known!

Give Me Oil in My Lamp

Give me oil in my lamp, keep it burning

Give me oil in my lamp I pray

Give me oil in my lamp, keep it burning

Keep it burning till the light of day

My God is So Big

My God is so big, so strong and so might!

There’s nothing my God cannot do!

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty!

There’s nothing my God cannot do!

He made the trees, He made the seas;

He made the elephants, too!

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty!

There’s nothing my God cannot do!

"The Truth" Joshua 6:20 “So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown. As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city.”

Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho

Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho

Joshua fought the battle of Jericho

And the walls came tumbling down!

Veggie Tales I Can Be Your Friend

Have you ever seen a boy with funny clothes?

A girl with braces on her teeth or freckles on her nose?

Some kids call them oddballs, some kids call them weird

Is it my imagination, or does Aunt Ruth have a beard?

Zacchaeus

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”

Jesus Love Is a Bubbling Over

Jesus love is a-bubbling over. (3 times)

Hallelujah

“Oo” love is a-bubbling over. (3 times)

Hallelujah

“Oo” “ah” is a Bubbling over. (3 times)

Hallelujah

Jesus Loves the Little Children

Jesus loves the little children,

All the children of the world.

Red and yellow, black and white,

All are precious in His sight,

Jesus loves the little children of the world.

His Banner Over Me Is Love

Jesus is the rock of my salvation,

His banner over me is love.

Jesus is the rock of my salvation,

His banner over me is love.

Jesus is the rock of my salvation,

His banner over me is love.

His banner over me is love!

A To Z with Noah

We’re goin’ A to Z with Noah

We’re goin’ A to Z with Noah

We’re goin’ A to Z with Noah

And the animals in the ark

A, antelope; B, bear

C, cat; D, dog; E, elephant

F, foxl G giraffe; H, hippo

This Train

This train is bound for glory, this train!

This train is bound for glory, this train!

This train is bound for glory,

If you ride it, you must be holy,

This train is bound for glory, this train!

Dem Dry Bones

Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"

Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"

Ezekiel cried, "Dem dry bones!"

"Oh, hear the word of the Lord."

This Little Light of Mine

This little light of mine

I'm going to let it shine

Oh, this little light of mine

I'm going to let it shine

Hallelujah

This little light of mine

I'm going to let it shine

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

He's Got the Whole World

He's got the whole world in his hands.

He's got the whole world in his hands.

He's got the whole world in his hands.

He's got the whole world in his hands

Be Careful Little Eyes What You See

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little eyes what you see

The Wise Man Built His House on a Rock

Oh, the rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

And the wise man's house stood firm.

Veggie Tales Thankfulness Song

I thank God for this day

For some time to play outside

For the birds in the trees

For His love that’s deep and wide

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Swing low, sweet chariot,

Coming for to carry me home,

Swing low, sweet chariot,

Coming for to carry me home.

I'm Gonna Sing, I'm Gonna Shout

O, when the saints go marching in,

O, when the saints go marching in,

How I want to be in that number,

When the saints go marching in.

Kumbaya

Kumbaya, Lord, kumbaya

Kumbaya, Lord, kumbaya

Kumbaya, Lord, kumbaya

Oh, Lord, kumbaya

"The Truth" Joel 2:11 “The LORD utters his voice before his army, for his camp is exceedingly great; he who executes his word is powerful. For the day of the LORD is great and very awesome; who can endure it?”

I'm in the Lord's Army

I may never march in the infantry

Ride in the cavalry

Shoot the artillery

I may never fly o’re the enemy

But I’m in the Lord’s army!

Yes Sir!

I think many of these songs will be around for quite a while, as I know I will be teaching them to my daughter. What are your favorite children’s Bible songs and which ones do you love to sing with your kids?
