Lent Music for Holy Trinity Projects and Activities for Grandparents and Grand kids

Last week, while singing in church, I was delighted when our worship pastor included one of the lovely praise and worship hymn songs we used to sing when I first started walking with the Lord. Glorify Thy Name is a very simple and easy to learn song, full of such sweet family memories of when my children were young.

Now, it's my grandkids I enjoy singing simple worship music with and this was perfect timing after my Word-filled Wednesday post this past week, "The Trinity Explained to Children Using Easter Activities for Grandparents and Grandchildren." Basically, the lyrics are:

Father, we love Thee, 

We worship and adore Thee,

Glorify Thy Name in all the earth...

The second verse is the same, but it's sung to Jesus, and the third verse is sung to the Spirit.

What delightful and easy to sing music to have playing when you are enjoying fun Easter craft activities for grandparents and grandchildren from a Christian perspective, like decorating Easter Eggs while using them as a way of explaining the Holy Trinity to them. It's not one of your traditional Easter hymns, but it's certainly a good fit for the season.

The season of Lent and Easter is such a wonderful time for grandparents and their grandchildren to make wonderful family memories while learning more about Christian truths as you enjoy fun Easter crafts and egg activities for grandparents and grand kids.

I love hearing children sing! So precious. When I am feeling down, I sometimes search GodTube for videos of little ones. They always bring a smile to my face!!!!

I’ve not heard that song in ages, and yes it’s simplicity is beautiful.

Hi Carolyn, It’s also so easy to teach simple tunes, like this praise and worship music, to kids and grandkids. AND easier for older brains to remember the whole song. :) My grandkids chuckle when I go “da de da” when I can’t remember lyrics, which is often. This one I can still remember all the words even after so long. :)

We used to sing that song too. It’s funny how songs are really popular for awhile and then new ones come along and we don’t sing the old ones anymore. I always loved that song. Thank you for bringing back the memory.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Oh that brought back such memories of our Friday night Bible Studies back in California when oldest was just a little one. Those memories are rich with growth in the Lord and deep commitment among our body of believers. There was a unity there I have not seen anywhere else we have attended.
Maybe it was meant as a foretaste of heaven!
Thank you for the joy.
Blessings,
Janis
