Three Wise Men
(To the tune of Three Blind Mice.)
Three wise men, three wise men
Traveling a far, seeing a star
They found the Savior in Bethlehem
Fell on their knees to worship
Never before had there ever been a Child like Him
Three wise men.
Three wise men, three wise men.
Followed the star, followed it far.
They followed the star to Bethlehem
Bow down and worshiped the newborn king
Gave gold, and myrrh, and frankincense,
To Jesus the king.
Baby Jesus Song
(To the tune of “Are you sleeping Brother John”)
Baby Jesus, baby Jesus, (cup and rock your arms)
please don’t cry, please don’t cry. (rub eyes)
Don’t you know I love you, Don’t you know I love you, (give yourself a hug)
Very much, very much. (arms out wide)
Baby Jesus, baby Jesus, (cup and rock your arms)
born to us, born to us. (arms on chest)
Come let us adore Him, Come let us adore Him. (praying hands)
Joyously, joyously. (Arms up)
Baby Jesus, Baby Jesus (cup and rock your arms)
Born to us, Born to us (arms on chest)
You came to save us, You came to save us (raise hands to heaven)
Amen, Amen (prayerful hands)
Baby Jesus, Baby Jesus (cup and rock your arms)
We love you, We love you (hug yourself)
We’re going to heaven, going to heaven (point upwards)
Thank you, Thank you (prayerful hands)
Away in a Manger
Away in a manger, no crib for His bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay,
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray!
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to heaven, to Live with Thee there.
Do You Hear What I Hear?

Said the night wind to the little lamb, “Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb. Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite, with a tail as big as a kite.”
Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, “Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy. Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea, with a voice as big as the sea.
Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, “Do you know what I know?
In your palace warm, mighty king. Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold–
Let us bring him silver and gold, let us bring him silver and gold.”
Said the king to the people everywhere, “Listen to what I say!
Pray for peace, people, everywhere. Listen to what I say!
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light. He will bring us goodness and light.
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light,
Joy to the World
Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven, and heaven and nature sing.
Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
while fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.
No more let sins and sorrows grow,
nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessing flow
far as the curse is found,
far as the curse is found,
far as, far as the curse is found.
He rules the world with truth and grace,
and makes the nations prove
the glories of His righteousness,
and wonders of His love,
and wonders of His love,
and wonders, wonders of His love.
Christmas Bells
(To the tune of “Jingle Bells”.)
Christmas bells, Christmas Bells,
Ring them all the day.
God the Father sent His son on that first Christmas Day.
Oh, Christmas bells, Christmas bells,
ring them all the day.
God the Father sent His son on that first Christmas day.

  1. Love these I always have a group of various ages, so it’s hard to find one they all will do!
    Here’s one: to I’m a little tea pot
    I’m a little snow man round and fat, here is my broom and my big black hat.
    (Motion holding a broom and pointing to tall hat)
    When the sun come out I like to play.
    But I must be careful of I’m melt away.
    (Melt to your knees) 🙂

  2. I love the song of Three Wise Men, but as I was looking for something more specific to a theme we were doing in our church on God’s light shines in the world and God revealing himself to the world, I changed a few of the lines to be more in line with our program. And as there are no mention of 3 wise men in the Bible, I changed it to The Wise Men…So here’s my version:
    The Wise Men
    The Wise Men, The Wise Men
    Traveling a far, seeing a star
    They found the Saviour in Bethlehem
    Fell on their knees to worship Him
    God’s light now shines in the world through Him
    The Wise Men
    The Wise Men, The Wise Men
    Followed the star, followed it far
    They followed the star to Bethlehem
    And worshiped Jesus the newborn King
    God revealed Himself to the world through Him
    Jesus the King
