What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
Watching reports pop up of “great children’s song…” from Facebook and Twitter, it seems that 'sound' parents want their kids only to sing Bible verses set to music. That is, actual Bible verses (ESV or NIV) squeezed onto notes.
Funny thing is, we don’t demand the same for ourselves. We sing “Amazing Grace” with gusto, and “10,000 reasons” from our hearts.
Now I’m not saying that your 5-7 year olds should be singing 10,000 reasons in Sunday Club – but what should they be singing?Continued - Read More »»
This is great fun - a rock 'n' roll Bible song! You'll never get it out of your head...
I've got three new songs on the go. Two are about treasure - it's the theme of HotShots Summer Club 2009. Another is a Bible song, based on Psalm 19.
I'm still working on the songs we recorded with the kids a few weeks ago - working on some new mixing techniques, so that's slowing me up. Also - work is MAD (great, but MAD) - so that stops me doing Maynards' stuff.
Watch this space...
"Immeasura-bubbly" is one of my favourites - you can listen to it here: www.maynardsgroovytunes.co.uk/jukebox/godcando
It's based on Paul's words in Ephesians 3:20-21: "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
Put those ideas together with some of what the previous verses say... and that's what this song is all about. God can do so much more, he loves us so much more, he wants us to know and love him so much more - than we can ever imagine!
One of things that makes the song fun is the hula dance we always do it to... and the catchy tune of course. So have a listen - and don't forget, you can get the sheet music for free by simply clicking the 'sheet' button, once you're on the jukebox.
