The following song is by Fr Modupe Taylor-Pearce, and Anglican Priest from Sierre Leone. Its not technically about Jesus being born, but since it is to the tune of Jingle Bells, we sing it at Christmas time!

1. J-O-Y, J-O-Y,

This is what it means:

Jesus first

Yourself last

And others in between

2. J-O-Y, J-O-Y,

Romans Thirteen Nine

Love your neighbor as yourself

And this will give you Joy

E: Learning about Jesus, listening to his voice

Obeying his word, joyful all the way.

Listening to his voice, Obeying his word.

O what fun it is to have Christ Jesus in my heart - Oi!

(Repeat whole song)

Take Me Out to the Stable

(tune/"Take Me Out to the Ballgame)

Take me out to the stable,

out to where Christ was born.

Show me the manger he

used for his bed.

Show me the sweet doves

who cooed by his head.

And let's look way up

at the heavens,

look for the star where He lay.

For it's why -- we -- have

Christmas morning.

It's Jesus' birthday!

For it's why -- we -- have

Christmas morning.

It's Jesus' birthday!

The Baby in the Manger (tune of "Wheels on the Bus)

The cow in the manger went moo-moo-moo, moo-moo-moo, moo-moo-moo, the cow in the manger went moo-moo-moo, all through the night.

The hay on the ground went crunch-crunch-crunch, crunch-crunch-crunch, crunch-crunch-crunch, the hay on the ground went crunch-crunch-crunch, all through the night.

The baby in the manger went waa-waa-waa, waa-waa-waa, waa-waa-waa, the baby in the manger went waa-waa-waa, all through the night.

His mother Mary went shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh, his mother Mary went shh-shh-shh, all through the night

Here is a circle activity for Christmas

5 little angels high above me

The first one said "Do you see what I see?"

The second one said " A star is shining in the night

The third one said " Oh what a beautiful sight

The fourth one said " A child is sleeping in the night

The fifth one said " He will bring us goodness and light

5 little angels sing with joy about the birth of a baby boy

We little snowmen, so colorful and bright
are here to say thank you with all our might.
We not only have a nice place to play
we get to learn about God and we get to pray.
Our teachers are so sweet and they really do care
even though they ask us to clean up and they ask us to share.
Today we are learning about snow and winter.
Oh what fun we have at this center.
So if you need a friend, a friend in deed
come to our room and you will see.





it is a song

Happy Birthday Jesus

Happy Birthday Jesus 
I'm so glad its Christmas 
All the tinsel and lights 
The presents are nice 
But the real gift is you 
Happy Birthday Jesus 
Jesus I love you!





Jesus - to the tune of Bingo

The Lord above us gave his son and Jesus was his name-o. 
J-E-S-U-S! J-E-S-U-S! J-E-S-U-S! 
And Jesus was his name-o.





Happy Birthday to Jesus (tune: Happy Birthday)

On the first Christmas Day, From the Father above, Came the little Lord Jesus, To show us God's love.

Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, I love you dear Jesus, Happy birthday to you.

Our three year old classes usually sing this one at our Christmas program each year.





Twinkle twinkle little star. 
That shown so bright upon that night. 
You led the shepherds unto the site. 
A manger of hay where the new baby Jesus did lay. 
There was no inn for them to stay. 
The Virgin birth forever changed the way our lives were made.

This is a cute poem. I CAN'T GO TO BETHLEHEM

I can't go to Bethlehem far across the snow, But I can go to church and learn Of Christmas long ago.

I can't see the manger crib where Baby Jesus lay, But I can wheel our baby out and mind him everyday.

I can't give such gifts as gold, The wise Men had to show. But I can give a smile and love to everyone I know.

This is an add-on to the previous listed song Mary Had a Baby Boy, (tune of Mary had a little lamb)

After the first two verses: The Shepard's came to visit him Visit him, Visit him. The Shepard's came to visit him Because the angle told them.

The three wise men brought him gifts, Brought him gifts, Brought him gifts. The three wise men brought him gifts. Frankincense, gold and myrrh.



The following is more of a poem, rather than a song.

Santa's Prayer
Author:  Unknown

The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
But Santa still knelt by the side of the bed.
"Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.
There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.
I must jump in my sleigh and streak through the sky,
Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.
I will visit each household before the first light,
I'll cover the world and all in one night.
With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.
To get in the house is the difficult part,
So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.
My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.
The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
I will fill all the stockings and not leave a track.
I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.
I can do all these things Lord, only through You,
I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.
All this is to honor the birth of the One,
That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.
So to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,
Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job."



Mary Had A Baby Boy (Sung to "Mary Had A Little Lamb"
By Daylene

Mary had a baby boy
Baby boy
Baby boy
Mary had a baby boy
And she named Him Jesus

He was born in a manger
In a manger
In a manger
He was born in a manger
Among all the hay

Mary had a baby boy
Baby boy
Baby boy
Mary had a baby boy
And she named Him Jesus

Author:  Unknown

On the very first Christmas night
A wondrous star shone big and bright
It marked the spot where the Baby lay
So kings and shepherds could come to pray



Author:  Unknown

What can I give Jesus, small as I am?
The shepherd gave him a baby lamb.
Three wise men gave him precious gold.
The angels sang of His glory untold.
Mary and Joseph gave their loving care.
But what I can I give?
My heart to share!






This is a song we made for our children to do at our Christmas program. It is sung to the tune of, "The More We Get Together" It's called, "Mary Had A Baby"

Mary had a baby, a baby, a baby, Mary had a baby One glorious night.

One glorious night, with the stars shining bright, Mary had a baby, one glorious night.

She named the baby Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, She named the baby Jesus, Cause God told her to.

Cause God told her to, Cause God told her to, She named the baby Jesus, Cause God told her to.

The shepherds came to worship, Worship, Worship, The shepherds came to worship The newborn king.

The newborn king, The newborn king, The Shepherds came to worship The newborn king.

The wise men brought him presents, Presents, presents, The wise men brought him presents Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh.

Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh, The wise men brought him presents Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh.

To the tune of "Oh Come Little Children"

The dear little Jesus once lay in the hay (pretend you're sleeping) He slept and he smiled and he grew day by day (stand up slowly) Until he could run (run in place) And could play and could be... A help to his parents, like you and like me!

One little baby as sleep on the hay. Two loving parents keep watch while they pray. Three wise men traveled on camels to find. One Little Baby - Your Jesus and mine.

A Savior born on Christmas Day, And Jesus is His name-o.
J-E-S-U-S, J-E-S-U-S, J-E-S-U-S,

And Jesus is His name-o.

Got this idea off the Internet. We will be using it in our Christmas program. Kids love it and are learning it with record speed. It is a finger play.

Clop, clop, clop went the donkey's feet. Clop, clop, clop down the stony street.

Nod, nod, nod went Mary's head. She was so tired. She needed a bed.

Knock, knock, knock went Joseph at the door. Do you have room for anyone more?

No, no, no the innkeeper said. We don't even have one more bed.

Wait, wait, wait the innkeeper said. You can use my stable for a bed.

Sh, sh, sh what is that I hear?' The cry of baby Jesus oh so dear.
