It was God who made the world.

Replace the word 'world' with other things that God created depending on the day of creation (cows, dogs, trees, etc.)  Have the child suggest their own.

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!

He’s Got the Whole World   Traditional

He's got the whole world in His hands (3x)
The whole world in His hands.

Create your own verses:
He's got our family...
He's got the mountains and the rivers...
He's got the fish and the birds...
