Good Bible songs for children include "Father Abraham," "The B-I-B-L-E," "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy (Down in My Heart)," "Rise and Shine" and "I'm in the Lord's Army." Each of these songs is both fun yet meaningful.
The lyrics of "Father Abraham" are simple and discuss how naming Abraham the father of the nation of Israel means all believers are descended from him. Each verse of the song is followed by a movement or series of movements. For example, after the first verse, the kids swing their right arm back and forth. By the end of the song, the kids swing both arms, stomp both feet, put their chin up, turn around and sit down.
"The B-I-B-L-E" is another song with a simple message. The lyrics speak of how the Bible is what believers stand on.
George Willis Cooke wrote the fun song "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy." The lyrics tell of how Christians are joyful because they believe that Jesus has saved them. The song is frequently done with hand motions.
"Rise and Shine" is another fun song that kids really get into. Its verses touch on different aspects of the story of Noah and the ark.
Kids also really enjoy "I'm in the Lord's Army." The lyrics have accompanying body movements, and children usually like to pretend that they are marching.
