- "God Made Me" Poem
Here are my fingers, here are my toes
Here are my knees, here is my nose
Here are my feet that help me walk around
Here is my mouth that can make sound
Here are my ears, my shoulders, my belly
Here is my tongue that eats grape jelly
Here is my hair that is crazy you see
Here is my smile that God gave me!

- God Made Me (Adapted from Unknown Original Source)
Tune:  This Old Man (sing at a slower tempo than normal to allow the child to point to the body parts mentioned in the song)

God made me, God made me,
Thank You, God, for making me.
With my eyes, and ears,
a nose, and a mouth.
Thank You, God, for making me.
