Books of the Bible

Every child should learn the books of the Bible in order. Start with the Old Testament!


Jesus loves the little children, All the children of the world;
Red and yellow, black and white, They are precious in His sight -
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Jesus Loves Me.


Only a Boy Named David

The B I B L E

Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam, to shine for Him each day
In every way try to please Him, at home, homeschool, and play! (Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.)

A sunbeam, a sunbeam - Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.
A sunbeam, a sunbeam. I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

Jesus wants me to be happy, and kind to all I see; (Be kind to one another.)In every way try to please Him, a little one like me! (Even a child is known by his doings.)

A sunbeam, a sunbeam - Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.
A sunbeam, a sunbeam. I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

The Wise Man and the Foolish Man

Father we thank thee for the night, and for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care, and all that makes the world so fair.

Help us to do the things we should, to be to others kind and good;
In all we do in work and play, to love thee better day by day.

Great is Thy Faithfulness
Trust and Obey
Holy, Holy, Holy
