Sing “I’m in the Lord’s Army
March to a Military Chant
Tell the children that they are in the Lord’s Army and they are going to practice marching. Start by counting one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, etc. until all the children are marching at the same pace. Act like a drill sergeant. Tell them to stand tall, face forward, lift their feet up high, and look proud to be in the Lord’s army. Then tell them to repeat after you the following lines. Once they get the rhythm and words, you can have them march in a circle.
We are Christians passing by, (We are Christians passing by)
We will hold our heads up high. (We will hold our heads up high)
We don’t steal and we don’t lie. (We don’t steal and we don’t lie)
“Stand for the truth” is our cry. (Stand for truth is our cry.)
God is God of earth and sky. (God is God of earth and sky.)
On God’s words, we can rely. (On God’s words we can rely.)
For our sins, we know he died. (For our sins, we know he died.)
We’ll stick with him by and by. (We’ll stick with him by and by.)
