Hey there, fellow ukers. It's been a while since I posted, but I do play almost every day.
My small group at church is beginning a new format that involves dinner and includes all of our kids. There will be two worship tunes being played that we will all learn. I've been asked to lead this time of worship and I'm going to use my uke as accompaniment. All songs must be geared toward kids, ranging in age from 1yr to 11yrs old.
Does anyone have some song recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

There's a link to a good web site of worship songs in this recent thread:

http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?86081-Worship-song-website

Two songs there that are good for kids would be Jesus Loves Me, and Jesus Loves the Little Children.

Have fun!

Hi David

I have a home-spun cd of Bible-based kids Christian songs that I wrote during my time as a Sunday school and youth leader through the mid-2000s...basically they were all written on a uke and based on particular verses/passages we happened to be studying on a given week. I gave one away to each kid at Christmas as a memento of the year we had. Be happy to send one to you mate, they were a real hit and some of em were pretty funny, though the recordings themselves are very rudimentary. PM me and I'll put one in the mail. Cheers.

This has been my go-to book for a while. Has a lot of fun tunes and several Christian songs. http://www.amazon.com/Best-Childrens-Songs-Piano-Songbook/dp/0793589665/ref=pd_sim_b_15

This next one is a CD link, because Amazon doesn't have the book, but I have used it a lot with the children's choir at church and at school when I taught. If you can find a copy, it is great. http://www.amazon.com/Great-Songs-Gods-Kids-various/dp/B0016GJWCY

The Kids Hymnal is good too. http://www.christianbook.com/the-kids-hymnal-80-songs-hymns/9781598562149/pd/562149?event=CF

And anything Wee Sing is good, but geared for younger kids, like preschoolers.

It doesn't get any easier that "This Little Light of Mine" and "Do Lord."
Here's a link to "Do Lord." - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eqohnm85-Uc

If you go down thru the index at this site you will see many children's songs. Music and lyrics in PDF form, MP3 samples too. http://www.sermons4kids.com/music_index.htm

It's not a Christian Worship song specifically but our kids's favorite song at church is Blue Boat Home by Peter Mayer.

Somehow or other I came across this site a while ago:
http://childrensbiblesongs.us/

A lot of the classic "Sunday school songs".
