If you’re a mother, you’ll teach your children a song or two while they’re small. Children often learn by repetition – like singing the same songs over and over!
It’s never too early to lead our little ones to Christ with music. Let’s make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
Want to entertain your children while you teach them the faith? I have a long list of favorites, but here are 10 Bible songs for children to get you started.
This one is short and sweet – perfect to start off with your preschoolers. Give it a listen here.
My boys LOVE this song, since they get to stomp around the house and act like soliders. They love brandishing swords and shields, off to fight the ‘bad guys’.
This is the first song my children ask for at bedtime. I even change-up the lyrics, adding the verse,”Mary Loves You”.
Trying to explain the depths of God’s love for his children can be difficult. You can give children a visual with this song. These printable lyrics would be great on your bulletin board.
Don’t miss this craft to help your children recognize their gifts and how to use them.
If your children have ever been to church camp or vacation Bible school, there’s a good chance that they’ve heard this song. This song can go on forever, with about 10 different verses.
My children love the part about the devil sitting on a tack!
Teaching your little ones the teachings of Jesus? This song portrays the commandment of Jesus in John 13:34-35.
Ever had a day where you felt a little down? This song gives us a ‘chin up’, encouraging us to think about how God has blessed us.
Jesus taught in parables, and for children, parables are expressed beautifully in song.
This song tells the story of the wise and foolish builders found in Matthew 7:24-27.
10. Father Abraham
Get your kids up and moving with this rollicking song.
Need more ideas? I found this giant list over at Child’s Bible Songs that includes all the lyrics. I made a YouTube playlist of Bible Songs for Kids. You can create stations on Spotify or Pandora, too.
I’d love to hear your favorites! Be sure and leave a comment so we can all expand our repertoire of great Bible songs for children!
