- "Wordless Book" Song by Frances M. Johnston
(Use a Wordless Book or Gospel Fuzzies Glove to show the colors as you sing.)
(Black) My heart was dark with sin
until the Savior came in.
(Red) His precious blood I know
(White) Has washed it white as snow.
(Gold) And in His Word I'm told
I'll walk the streets of gold.
(Green) To grow in Christ each day
I read the Bible and pray.
( Listen - the last two lines are different in this YouTube video)

- " Gospel Fuzzies " (Author Unknown)
Learn the tune and then change the words to match the Wordless Book.  Here is my example.
We're the Gospel Fuzzies (3x)
And we'll tell you the Good News.
Black means I'm a sinner (3x)
And I can't get in.
Red means Jesus died (3x)
And He rose again.
White means I'm forgiven (3x)
When I trust in Him.
Gold stands for Heaven (3x)
Where I want to go.
Green means I am growing (3x)
If I read and pray.
