My Favorite Sunday School Songs

I loved going to Sunday School and I especially enjoyed the Sunday School Songs we sang.

I grew up in the small historic town of Pendleton, South Carolina attending Pendleton Presbyterian Church back in the 1950s and 1960s. Our teacher was Mrs. Frances Martin and she made our class so much fun as well as educational.

I remember the Sword Drills among other things. Mrs. Frances would divide the class into two groups and ask us Bible questions. Most of the questions had to do with the Old Testament stories. She also taught us many Sunday School Songs that I still love to sing today even though I am not blessed with a great singing voice. Do you remember your Sunday School teacher? Sunday School teachers are in a wonderful position to make memories for a child to cherish the rest of their lives. I am sure proof of that.

These songs bring me such a comforting, safe feeling. I hope we are giving our youth today some songs to hold on to and enjoy for the rest of their lives. The lyrics that I have added here are mostly from memory or from my sister's little green book. You might know different lyrics as some of the songs vary. I have posted a great link to a site that list most of the Sunday School Songs and their lyrics. We usually sang these songs with hand motions so if you do not know the motions, just make them up. It makes it more fun! It would also be meaningful to teach the children the sign language for each of the songs.

After my husband and I married, we joined the Pendleton United Methodist Church and I enjoy the Children's Ministries and their love of music. I still enjoy my Sunday School Class and don't think you ever get too old to get a lot out of Sunday School. I know there are some nice new songs that are sung by Sunday Schools but to me, these are special and I hope they will be around for a long, long time.

I have so many fond memories of this church and it will always be very special to me. I loved going to Sunday School and singing these old Sunday School Songs and learning about the Bible. Even though we are now active members at Pendleton United Methodist Church, this church will always have a special place in my heart. My parents and brother are buried in the cemetery here and even though we are active down the street at the Methodist Church, a part of me will always be at the Pendleton Presbyterian Church.. My husband and I were married in this church in 1978.

225th Anniversary of Pendleton Presbyterian Church: The big event was October 12, 2014 with Barbecue after the service. On June 8, 2014, Pendleton Presbyterian had a special service and reception for all those who were married in this church. If you were a teenager at the church, I hope you made it to reunion on July 27. My husband and I were married in this church and we really enjoyed the service on June 8. Since my sisters and I all grew up in that church, they can as did some very old friends on July 27, too. We sure had a great time seeing some of our old PYFers. It was so such fun!

Sunday School Songs for Kids

Bible Songs

I enjoyed this as well as others with my son and grandson. It has most of the old Sunday School Songs that I love so much. I think "Praise Him, Praise Him" is probably my most favorite Sunday School Song.

Read the reviews and see if this sounds like a cd that you would want. There are some great reviews! Let's keep singing these wonderful Sunday School Songs for Kids so they will never be forgotten.

Singing these songs is a great way to start a day no matter what age you are.

Here are a few that are on this disc:

Give Me Oil In My Lamp

Jesus Loves Me

Joshua Fought The Battle Of Jericho

Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam

The B-I-B-L-E

 

My Sister's Sunday School Song Book

We still enjoy getting together and singing these old Sunday School Songs

I have been blessed with a lot of talents but singing was not one of them. This has not prevented me from enjoying music and enjoying singing. It's just that not many people enjoy hearing me.

My sisters and I often sing our old Sunday School Songs remembering those days at Pendleton Presbyterian Church. We also have fond memories of visiting the Presbyterian Church in Ware Shoals, SC. Our grandmother and lots and lots of relatives lived there. Our Aunt Polly taught Sunday School and I loved to go to her class. Aunt Polly owned the kindergarten, "Little Red Schoolhouse" in Ware Shoals and was quite a character. I can just hear her singing "Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain". We also sang many of these songs at Camp Grier which is where the church children went to camp for a week every summer. Of course, we sang lots of fun camp songs, too!

In 1980, my sister Betty compiled a little book titled "My Sunday School Song Book". I still have my copy and refer to it quite often. Betty made this book before we had personal computers so I imagine it was done on her old Royal Typewriter with carbon copies. Thank you Betty for years of enjoyment of your little book. I have used it when I was teaching Sunday School and refer back to it often now with my grandson.

One of these days I am going to surprise my sisters with a new copy of this book. It is such a joy and getting hard to read the words to these old Sunday School Songs. I really need to do that soon. I would hate to lose the words to some of our favorite Sunday School Songs. My other sister put together a big book of all the songs we loved to sing including old camp songs and old songs that our parents taught us. Both books are treasures, for sure.

Jesus Loves Me

This I Know For The Bible Tells Me So

Jesus loves me, this I know, For the Bible tells me so.

Little ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me,

Yes, Jesus loves me, for The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me, He who died, Heaven's gates to open wide,

He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me, loves me still, Though I'm very weak and ill,

From His shining throne on high, Comes to watch me where I lie.

Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain - Heavenly Breezes Blow

I love this song. It makes me so happy and these children do a wonderful job of singing it. I can just hear my Aunt Polly leading this one. She would get so excited and dance around while singing. When she would sing the part about "the heavenly breezes blow", she would swoop her hands back and forth and I could just feel those heavenly breezes. Whew, talk about making memories. Our Aunt Polly sure did a lot of that for us and I have tried to do the same thing. I just hope and pray that our children and grandchildren will cherish their memories as much as I do.

You'll connect with your readers. If you type a sentence here about why you love this video.

Climb, Climb Up Sunshine Mountain

You and I

Climb, climb up sunshine mountain,

Heavenly breezes blow.

Climb, climb up sunshine mountain,

Faces all aglow.

Turn, turn from sin and doubting,

Look into the sky.

Climb, climb up sunshine mountain,

You and I.

Praise Him, Praise Him - All Ye Little Children - God Is Love - God is Love

I remember singing this one every Sunday morning. Such special memories that are warm and fuzzy. Like so many of the old Sunday School Songs, this one just "feels good". I think it is my favorite.

Praise Him Praise Him

All Ye Little Children, God Is Love, God is Love

Praise Him, praise Him

All ye little children,

God is love, God is love.

Praise Him, praise Him

All ye little children,

God is love, God is love.

(Serve Him, Love Him)

In My Heart There Rings A Melody

in perfect harmony

In my heart there rings a melody,

There rings a melody in perfect harmony.

In my heart there rings a melody,

There rings a melody of love.

He's Got The Whole World In His Hands - He's got you and me brother in his hands!

Do you remember this one? I sure do!

Enjoy singing along with the Cedarmont Kids!

He's Got The Whole World In His Hands

He's got the whole world in His hands, He's got the whole wide world in His hands,

He's got the whole world in His hands, He's got the whole world in His hands!

He's got the itty, bitty, baby in His hands

Zaccheus

was a wee little man and a wee little man was he

Zacchaeus was a wee little man, and a wee little man was he.

He climbed up in a sycamore tree, for the Lord he wanted to see.

And as the Savior passed him by, He looked up in the tree,

And he said, "Zacchaeus, you come down from there;

For I'm going to your house today, for I'm going to your house today"

Zacchaeus came down from that tree, as happy as he could be,

He gave his money to the poor, and said: "What a better man I'll be."

Note: The story of Zacchaeus, the tax collector, can be found in the New Testament Luke 19:1-10. The animated video below tells the story of Zacchaeus.

Video of the Story of Zacchaeus

I remember acting out this story in Sunday School as a child and singing the song. I especially remember the thrill of being able to answer the question in the Sword Drills about who the rich tax collector who asked for forgiveness and was told by Jesus that he was saved and would go to Heaven.

Be Careful Little Eyes, What You See

There's a Father up above, looking down in tender love,

Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see.

Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see.

There's a Father up above, looking down in tender love,

So be careful little eyes, what you see.

Be careful little ears what you hear

Be careful little mouth what you say...

Be careful little hands, what you touch...

Be careful little feet, where you go...

If You're Happy And You Know It

Clap Your Hands!

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands,

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands,

If you're happy and you know it, then your life will surely show it,

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!

I've Got The Joy, Joy, Joy Down In My Heart

I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?)

I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?) down in my heart to stay.

And I'm so happy, so very happy. I've got the love of Jesus in my heart. And I'm so happy, so very happy. I've got the love of Jesus in my heart

Additional Verses:

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Our Jesus Christ is born.

Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere,

Go tell it on the mountain,

Our Jesus Christ is born.

When I was a seeker I sought both night and day, I asked the Lord to help me, And he showed me the way.

Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere, Go tell it on the mountain, Our Jesus Christ is born.

He made me a watchman Upon a city wall, And if I am a Christian, I am the least of all.

Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere, Go tell it on the mountain, Our Jesus Christ is born.

Do Lord

oh do remember me

I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun (HALLELUJAH!)

I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun (HALLELUJAH!)

I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun-way beyond the blue

Chrous:

Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me.r> Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me.

Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me-way beyond the blue.

Additional Verse:

I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too.

I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too.

I took Jesus as my Savior, You take Him too,

Yes He's Calling you.

Sunday School Medley - A Sunbeam, A Sunbeam

I had almost forgotten about "Sunbeam" and that was always one of my favorites.

A Sunbeam

Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam

1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,

To shine for Him each day;

In every way try to please Him,

At home, at school, at play.

* Refrain:

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam;

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,

I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

2. Jesus wants me to be loving,

And kind to all I see;

Showing how pleasant and happy,

His little one can be.

3. I will ask Jesus to help me

To keep my heart from sin;

Ever reflecting His goodness,

And always shine for Him.

4. I’ll be a sunbeam for Jesus,

I can if I but try;

Serving Him moment by moment,

Then live for Him on high.

Whisper A Prayer Lyrics

These are the lyrics I found in my sister's book

Whisper a Prayer in the Morning

Whisper a Prayer at Noon

Whisper a Prayer in the Evening

To Keep your heart in tune.

God answers Prayers in the Morning

God answers Prayers at noon

God answers Prayers in the Evening

To keep your heart in tune.

A Wise Man Built His House Upon A Rock

The Wise Man Built His House Upon The Rock

And The Rain Came Tumbling Down

The Wise Man Built His House

The wise man built his house upon the rock

The wise man built his house upon the rock

The wise man built his house upon the rock

And the rain came tumbling down

Oh, the rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

And the wise man's house stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand

The foolish man built his house upon the sand

The foolish man built his house upon the sand

And the rain came tumbling down

Oh, the rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

The rain came down

And the floods came up

And the foolish man's house went "splat!" [clap hands once]

So, build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ

Build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ

Build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ

And the blessings will come down

Oh, the blessings come down

As your prayers go up

The blessings come down

As your prayers go up

The blessings come down

As your prayer go up

So build your house on the Lord Jesus Christ.

A Beautiful Gift For A Special Child In Your Life!

This would be such a memorable gift for a child that will become a keepsake and one to be treasured.

Sometimes it is hard to come up with just the right gift but I think this one would be greatly appreciated and enjoyed for many years.

It is something that a child would treasure and maybe even pass on down to the next generation. It will be something special.

In The Temple

by request

Someone visiting this lens was looking for the words to "In The Temple". My sisters and I asked everyone we knew for help in finding this and finally one of Joan's friends came through for us. Hope this helps.

In the temple, in the temple Stood a happy boy one day,

And the doctors wondered greatly at the words they heard Him say.

It was Jesus! It was Jesus! Standing in the temple there.

And the light of heav'n was shining in His face so pure and fair.

It was Jesus who was teaching and they listened to His word,

As He told them of His mission from the great and mighty Lord.

It was Jesus! It was Jesus! Standing in the temple there.

And the light of heav'n was shining in His face so pure and fair.

Let us ever then be eager to sit down at Jesus' feet

To be learning from our Saviour, and His lessons to repeat.

It was Jesus! It was Jesus! Standing in the temple there.

And the light of heav'n was shining in His face so pure and fair.

      I loved Sunday school only because it made me realise - through the teacher being unable to answer my searching questions to my satisfaction - that the whole religion thing was a put-up job. Needless to say I got myself barred from further attendance, but I am certain I missed nothing of importance!

      There is a long tradition among us Catholics that 'he who sings prays twice' and all of these songs are a double duty prayer to the Living God and to Jesus. Children LOVE them, and can sing their hearts out to the Lord, which of course, He dearly loves.

      Nancy, I thought of this lens this morning in church. Our pastor was talking about the scripture where Jesus calls Peter the rock, the foundation. Right away I was singing in my mind, "Jesus is the rock of my salvation. His banner over me is love." and doing the motions we did when my kids were little. You have the one about the wise man building his house upon the rock. Guess that will be in my head now for the rest of the day, which is a good thing! This is such a wonderful lens. Thank you!

      Thank you so much for going to the trouble of making this site. I couldn't remember all these songs, except for a few and I take a turn at teaching a class of preschoolers. Now that this site has refreshed my memories, I can be a better sunday school teacher. Helping hide the word in kid's hearts through easy to learn songs. The songs I did remember from sunday school were what helped me when I turned away from God for a short time in my life. They were also the songs that I sung when I began to gradually come back, because they were the only worship type songs I knew. This blesses my heart so much. Thank you.

      I'm 62 years old and I have fond memories of Sunday School at Lowe's Memorial Church in South Baltimore. I remember a specific song that I can't seem to find on the internet. My mother used to sing this song to us and to our children when she was rocking them to sleep. I think it's called "God is Everywhere." Some of the lyrics are: God is everywhere, his love is over all, through the whispering breezes, shadows as they fall, in the babbling brooks and in the trees so tall, God is everywhere. (chorus) God is in the flowers and the birds that sing, over all the earth he makes the joy bells ring. Into every heart a little love he brings, God is everywhere. Does anyone remember this one?

      Some of my happiest childhood memories are of singing in Sunday School. The ONLY thing I liked better was the cookie and punch refreshment. I liked the songs with hand motions that went along - "the wise man built his house upon the rock" is one I loved, and of course, "this little light of mine." But I think my all time favorite was the countdown song that started out "somewhere in outer space, God has prepared a place ..." we all memorized the verse at the end " ... and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there ye may be also." Love this lens ... had to come back and enjoy it again this morning.

I have taken the liberty to add my own most remembered Sunday school song in the space provided for our sunday school memories above..i hope you don't mind but it was and still is one of my favourites and i teach it to almost every child i meet lol..i also loved to sing "Jesus loves me yes i know..because the Bible tells me so"..anyway thankyou for filling my spiritual moment today with this wonderful lens..Brightest-Blessings Tina x

      I am wondering if anyone knows what the name of this song is. I have entered what I remember from childhood in various ways in my search engine and have had no luck. He is the chorus: Jesus I love you I want you to know that I long to be near you wherever you go, So here I kneel before you to do the best that I can do and I just want to tell you Jesus I love you.

Not only the childrens's songs, bkut the others led by John Holland Hunter in church. Music at church was big in my life growing up. Later, in the Pendleton Presbyterian Church Adult Sunday School Class, The Rev. Wylie Hogue said something that I have never fogotten..."The hymns and songs sung in church form the life theology of most church members." I still love the hymns we sing, and, I am drawn most to those that speak to my soul and life and how I live out my theology.

      Bless God--this is wonderful! Tipi sent it to me on Sunday and I came right over and wrote wonderful messages that just wouldn't send. I came back for a 2nd helping. Here's a little known fact. Tipi and I grew up in the United Methodist Church at Kabetogama and we even helped build the church as children, we were too young to be charter members, but our brother is one. We first met at our Dad's childhood home and got to keep the missionary pump organ at our house during the week in the winter to protect it from freezing. Boy did we sing!

      Brought back some memories. I love singing! I was in the choir once, about 9 or 10 years old. I can still see Grandma sitting on the front row of that old church where she lays in rest now, after 99 years of living and losing all but one of her 12 children before she passed. She had such a look of pride on her face for her little granddaughter. It surely couldn't have been because she could hear my singing -- people usually put their hands over their ears for that! :) To this day, I can't sing -- only my grandson likes to listen. I know just what you mean, OhMe. :)

      This is a great lens, I went to sunday school every week with my family as a little girl too! These songs I remember well too! I loved one called "God Answers Prayer in the Morning" (not sure if that's the exact title, but I can hear it in my head!) Good work!

      I was not raised in a Christian home, but went to Sunday School and VBS with neighbors and friends. I loved the songs, and today am serving Jesus Christ. Both of my parents also received Jesus before they died! What great memories you brought back. 5*s!

      [in reply to Joan4] Joan, I do remember "Sunday School is Over" and hope to get the church kids to sing that one for a video. Mrs. Jolly was so touched that you remembered the one she taught you.

      I love old Sunday School songs. Even when I didn't go to church, for years, you could get me to sing hymns and Sunday School songs. I remember once driving with my friend, an exwife of an ex Methodist minister and we sang out all the songs! When I was in seminary in Arizona, I used to climb this cactus 'mountain' every morning and then sit on the top and belt out, "I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses, and the voice I hear falling on my ear, the son of God discloses. And he walks with me and he talks with me..." See, you got me started and I can't stop! ***** to you

      You selected some great songs to put on this lens, OhMe! Just even the titles have ministered to my soul, and I can hear the Spirit of God's whisper in my ear. You have touched my life my dear. Have a great day!

      These are wonderful old favorites. Do you remember - Sunday School is over and we are going home. Goodbye. Goodbye. Be always kind and true.?and the one I have sung to myself over and over even in adult - hood - Mrs. Jolly taught us -- What time I am afraid, Quick to myself I'll say, there is no need of fear, I know a better way. I'll pray to God this prayer and very brave will be. What time I a afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.
