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