If You’re Thankful and You Know It


If you’re thankful and you know it clap your hands (clap, clap) (Repeat 2x)
If you’re thankful and you know it then your life will really show it
If you’re thankful and you know it clap your hands (clap, clap)

Optional verse:
…stomp your feet…
…say amen…
…do all three…

Thank You, Lord


Thank You, Lord, for saving my soul
Thank You, Lord, for making me whole
Thank You, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free

Five Little Pilgrims

Tune: Five Little Ducks

Five little pilgrims sailing in a boat (hold up 5 fingers)
Over the sea and water they float (make wave motions with hands).
One little pilgrim said, "I see land!"  (hold up one finger, then hold other hand
above eyes as if searching).
It's America, so grand (fold hands and bow head as if to pray).

Continue the song, subtracting the number of pilgrims as you go until there are no pilgrims.

Based on song from Group Publishing, Inc./ Children's Ministry Magazine

Praise Him, Praise Him


Praise Him, praise Him,
All you little children,
God is love, God is love.
Praise Him, praise Him,
All you little children,
God is love, God is love.

Add optional verses:
Love Him...
Thank Him...
Know Him...
Serve Him...
Crown Him...

God is so good
God is so good
He’s so good to me

God cares for me...

He's Got the Whole World in His Hands 


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

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins under the moon.
The first one said, "I will sleep soon."
The second one said, "The wind begins to blow."
The third one said, "I'll sleep to help me grow."
The fourth one said, "All around is fall."
The fifth one said, "Goodnight ya'll."

Thank You Song

Our family sings the Cocomelon "Thank You Song" for Thanksgiving. At the 3rd 'What are you thankful for?' line we each tell what we are thankful for. It is great to hear the things my kids are thankful for that I didn't even realize they thought about or appreciated.
