Children’s Song for John the Baptist (Second Advent, Mark 1:1-8)

with one comment

Of John the Baptist Let us Sing

Children’s Sermon: This song worked not only for Sunday 12/07/2008, but also 1/11/2009. This was one of the most active posts of my site last week. So click on the title above if you would like an idea about how it goes. It is not a performance. I just sing it so you can get the melody.

A John the Baptist Song

Of John the Baptist let us sing

He changed our hearts by baptism

Son of Zechariah and Elizabeth

He prepared the way for Jesus

He wore a shirt of camel’s hair

It was scratchy everywhere

Ate grasshoppers and wild honey

(And said), be sure to share your money.

(John said), “Jesus is the great I am,

He is God’s own little lamb.

I’m not good enough to tie his shoes,

To tell about Jesus is good news.

Into the water we all go

And this is what we get to know

We go down and Jesus comes up

and finds a way to save us.
