"Wanted - Dead AND Alive!" is our theme, for two fun-packed Jesus-centred Easter shows for children, available for free on Youtube. Songs, Bible, Quizzes, and Maynard and David. Part 1 looks at Good Friday, Part 2 at Easter Day. Kids love them, so share them and enjoy them. Especially good for Shelter-at-home or lockdown kids.
With the current global Coronavirus / COVID-19 outbreak lots of churches are not able to meet but are streaming their services. If this is you we hope you're thinking of children too. For the time being, as long as this notice is here on the front page, we're delighted to grant permission for the use of our song videos in live-streamed or pre-recorded church events. We pray that the Lord will bless the use of these resources to bring encouragement and hope to children in Jesus' name. Do get in touch if you need any help or info. Please continue to report the use on your CCLI licenses if you have them.
NB: on Youtube you may still see a "Copyright Claim" against your video. Don't worry - this isn't a bad thing, it just means Youtube has recognised a copyright song/video being used. You can't monetise your video, but you probably don't want to do that anyway.
Coronavirus is causing lots of worries for children, but our wonderful God is ever-present and able to help. This children's Bible song is all about God's nature - as seen in the pages of the Bible: God is all-knowing, all-present, and all-powerful.
So for example, Jesus knew all about Zacchaeus before he mets him (Luke 19:1-10), he promises to be with his followers always (Matthew 28:20), and he raised the dead, calmed the storm, and can forgive the sins of all who trust in him (Mark 5:40-43, Mark 4:35-41, Mark 10:45).
We use posh words for these characteristics - God is Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent - and that's why this song is all about "Omni!"
It's on the jukebox for you to listen to. You can also download the full track, backing track, and sheet music (that's free) from the store. There's a video too - click here.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego - Daniel's friends in captivity in Babylon - stood up to the great Nebuchadnezzar:
"If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up." (Daniel 3:17–18, NIV)
WOW! They had guts - and why? Because they knew that their God was the real God. He was able to save them, but even if he chose not to save them, they would still serve him and no other. This is a great song for these days, when children have to face so much in this world that is against us as believers in Jesus.
Our God is the real God - that's got to be something to sing about! Our "Daniel" song devotes a verse to his friends:
"Shadrach Meshach and Abednego - Bow down or to the furnace you will go!"
NO! Our God is the real God! Whatever you do, O King,
God can save us from your fire We'll only worship Him!
Our God is the real God! Our God is the real God!
Our God is the real God! We'll only worship Him!
This song has got a great message for us in all the difficulties of the Coronavirus Pandemic: Jesus is always there - solid as a rock, faithful, unchanging. Hebrews 13:8 tells us "Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forever" - and that's what this Sunday School children's Bible song is based on.
The video has the lyrics and music so you can sing along - why not use it in your Kids' Club video for Sunday? (Just drop me a line for permission to reproduce it.) Download it here
