We sing these songs with children at “Mustard Seeds” in the Autumn Term, to support the Bible narratives of the Old Testament and then the happenings of Advent and Christmas.

 

Who made [the twinkling stars, X3]

Who made [the twinkling stars?]

Our Father, God!

Who made [the warming sun/ the shining moon/the rolling sea/ you and me?]

Who sent [the angel down/ Mary’s son/our family / you and me?]

 

[To the tune of John Brown’s Body]

God Almighty, oh he made [the shining stars]X3

He made them big and small.

Glory, Glory for He made [the shining stars]X3

He made them one and all.

[rolling seas.]rolling hands

[running deer] running

[hopping frogs].. hopping

[both you and me/our loving hearts] pointing

 

[to the tune of; frere jaques;]

[I am/you are/ we are] special,X2

can't you seeX 2

very, very special X2

God made [me/you/ us]

 

[To the tune of “When I needed a neighbour”]

When you call me oh Father, I am here, I am here,

When you call me oh Father, I am here.

Don’t let me be like Adam but I’ll listen to you,

I am here.

When you call me oh Father, I am here, I am here,

When you call me oh Father, I am here.

Oh let me be like [Samuel/Mary] and I’ll listen to you,

I am here.

When you call me oh Father, I am here, I am here,

When you call me oh Father, I am here.

Don’t let me be like Jonah but I’ll listen to you,

I am here.

 

[To the tune of; one little speckled frog]

one advent candle, shines in a special ring,

showing us God's own son will come,

we light the [first one now]

and sing our song of how,

God's love goes on and on and on.
