“God Will Provide,” Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath, a children’s song

with 3 comments

This is a children’s song for the story of Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 17: 8-16). Click on the title to hear how it goes. It is the seventh song at the bottom of the myspace list.

God Will Provide

Elijah met the widow

of Zarephath

Picking up sticks

upon her path.

“Bring me some water,”

Elijah said,

“and don’t forget

to bake some bread.”

“The little I’ve left

will make one bread;

Then my son and I

will soon be dead.”

“Have some faith

and put God first

and God will fill

your hunger and thirst.”

“Your flour and oil

will never run out,

that’s what sharing

is all about.”

Selfish people

never have enough,

and those who share

have more to spare.

Those with a lot,

will always want more.

Those with a little

will help the poor.

Seek ye first

the Kingdom Above

and God will provide you

with food of love.

The food of love

Will never run out

Because that’s what

Sharing’s all about!

  1. He Pop! I finally listened to the tune of the Elijah and the widow of zarephath song because my computers working. I like it. It’s a really nice melody. I think it has a really nice rhythm. At some point I could make a track with guitar for u when we’re back home.
