Children’s Songs about Families

God Made Families

Some families are big. (spread arms out wide)
Some families are small (bring arms close together)
But God made our families (point up in the air) one and all!
Some families are big. (spread arms out wide)
Some families are small (bring arms close together)
But God loves our families (cross arms over chest) one and all!
Some families are big. (spread arms out wide)
Some families are small (bring arms close together)
But God keeps our families (cup hands in front) one and all!

    I like the songs, and I am compiling them into a booklet from the kids here in Vanuatu. However, I wonder if they could be given more tunes or music. They seemed to be using only two or three tunes.
