“The Peter Song” – an ever-evolving/adapting ministry song with kids

Been working on a kids song – The Peter Song – covering six chapters in the apostle Peter’s life in the gospels. Haven’t even touched Acts. Where once it was 3 1/2 minute marathon (completely non-kids-applicable) … I’ve now edited it right down, with each iteration just tackling two of the six segments.   Really, the verses are quite interchangeable. The pattern is simply this:

 

  • one verse
  • another verse
  • bridge
  • reprise one of the two earlier verses 🙂

Enjoy!   Blessings, David

Water deep
