Share This

Singing with children is one of the best ways for them to be motivated to learn. Not only that, it is a good way to get exercise too. There are many Christian songs for kids that I learned as a child. We sang these Christian songs in school, on the playground, at home and at special events like Junior Bible School or kiddies gospel clubs. Choosing just 5 awesome Christian songs for kids was a challenge because there are so many good ones out there. See if you know any of the ones I chose and share your own favorites in the comments below. Teach them to your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Deep And Wide (Writer Unknown)


This song is sung with actions and each verse replaces one more word with “hmmm”, yet you still do the action, like this:


Deep (one hand above the other with arms stretched up and down)

and wide (arms stretched wide apart)

there’s a fountain (arms motion like a fountain)

flowing deep (same motion of arms stretched up and down)

and wide (same motion with arms stretched wide apart)


Next verse replace “deep” with “hmmm” continuing all motions, and so on. Sing along with this one on the video below:
