Easter Songs

Song to the tune of “You are my Sunshine”


You bring us sunshine

You bring us rain,

We know you make things grow each day

You bring us love to share with others

And we thank you when we pray.

Dear God we love you, we want to know you

And be more like you want us to

Our hearts are open to spread your love God

‘Cause we know you love us too.

(Chorus repeated)

You brought us Jesus

Thank you for Jesus

He died to take our sins away

We want to talk to him and thank him

We know he hears us when we pray.

(repeat Chorus)

“Jesus is Alive Today” sung to the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”

Jesus is alive today, alive today, alive today. Jesus is alive today, it is Easter morning!

Song: Jesus Died For All The Children
(Tune: Jesus Loves The Little Children)

Jesus died for all the children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow and white
The are precious in His sight
Jesus died for all the children of the world.

(Sung to the tune of the “Do Re Mi” song from the movie “Sound of Music” Doe…a deer, a female deer?

Doncha know that Jesus died? Raised again in 3 short days… Me, the one for whom He died… Far, my sins He took away. So, I love Him evermore… Love, I’ve never known before. T, the shape of Calvary. Doncha know He died for me! Glory Hallelujah (repeat from top)

Easter Cheer (Tune: “B-I-N-G-O”)

Though Jesus died, let’s not be sad. (Make a sad face.)
On the cross for all to see (Make cross with fingers)
The thunder clapped. (Clap hands and stomp feet)
The earth, it shook (Make fists and shake arms)
When Jesus died, our sins he took. (Cross hands on chest then extend arms upward)
Then Jesus rose on the third day.
Walked from the tomb in which he lay.
The angels sang In heav’n above
For Jesus Christ’s great gift of love
