jump for joy – Easter song for little kids!

jump for joy picWell,

I never thought I had it in me – but surprise, surprise (and thanks, God!) I’ve written a boppy song for a playgroup Easter program at our church this coming Friday. Think 2-4 year olds.  This is the closest I’ll possibly ever get to the Wiggles/Hi-5 generation.

The song (named after Friday’s program) is called Jump for Joy!. Adults will offer the ‘middle’ teaching section, with the kids hopefully really getting into the initial (and repeated) boppy section. Lots of jumping,  hand-waving, hand-clapping, dancing … overall lively fun!

Usual story for me … couldn’t find much around for the age-group on a clear Christian Easter theme … so I wrote my own. When we link with the playgroup again before Christmas, we should be able to make some lyrical changes to fit the season.

Feel free to use it, and remember … PLENTY of actions!!!!

Shalom,
David

jump for joy

We’re gonna jump for joy (jump x4)
* Wave our hands (wave x 4)
Sing out loud (yeah!)
Dance around (dance in circle)
Because Jesus
 – Jesus is alive!
(repeat)

Jesus how you love me
For all the world you came
You lived, you died, you rose again
We praise your mighty name
Oh …

We’re gonna jump for joy (jump x4)
* Wave our hands (wave x 4)
Sing out loud (yeah!)
Dance around (dance in circle)
Because Jesus
 – Jesus is alive!
(repeat)
