4. Days of Creation written and contributed by Sharon Broome

Lyrics:
On day one God made light
Made the difference in day and night
God just spoke the words and it came true
Wonder what else God will do?
On day two Split in two
Skies above the water blue
God just spoke the words and it came to be
What will happen on day three?
On day three God made land
Then he put plants in the sand
God made herbs and grass and fruit on the tree
This was all done on day three
On day four God made lights
Some for days and some for nights
Stars are dim, but the sun and the moon are bright
Aren’t you glad that God made lights
On day five God made alive
Fish for the waters and birds for the skies
All the things that swim and birds to fly
These were made on day five
On day six God did fix
Animals, mankind and even ticks
God made lizards, cats, and other things that lick
Animals were created on day six
On day seven God in heaven
Rested from all the work he’d done
He’d made the earth, the stars, the moon, and sun
It was good what God had done

Join to sing the Savior’s praise.

Loud hosannas, loud hosannas,

All unite to swell the song;
Higher and yet higher rise,

12. The Old Rugged Cross – United Methodist Hymnal

Lyrics:
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.
O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.
In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
a wondrous beauty I see,
for ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me.
To that old rugged cross I will ever be true,
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
then he’ll call me some day to my home far away,
where his glory forever I’ll share.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet

Five little loaves and two little fishes
Jesus fed five thousand.
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Took the food, prayed, and broke it
Then passed it to the apostles.
Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
Each one ate until he was full
And there were still leftovers.
Twelve basketfuls were left over
Twelve basketfuls were left over
Twelve basketfuls were left over
After each had eaten.

Lyrics:
There was a little squirrel,
Playing in the trees;
Watching all the pretty leaves,
Swaying in the breeze.
When suddenly a man,
Gave the little squirrel a glance.
He was riding on a donkey,
So the squirrel had to dance.
He went up and down,

Twisted, jumped and twirled;
He leaned to the left,
And leaned to the right.
“Hosanna! Joy to the world!”

Cleansed me from sin,

Lyrics:
We are happy Christian soldiers, marching for the cause of right,
The Savior is our Captain and we’re bound to win the fight;
Come and join us, and we’ll tell you how He wins by truth and love,
As we’re marching to that home above.
We are marching onward
For the cause of right,
The royal banner
Gleaming in the light;
By the cross of Christ we’ll ever take our stand,
As we’re marching to that heav’nly land.
When the bugle sounds for battle, we will never know a fear,
Our armor is the Word of God, its truth our mighty spear;
If we rally ‘round our Leader we will capture Satan’s band,
As we’re marching to the heav’nly land.
Tho’ the way at times seems dreary, and our burdens hard to bear,
If we but trust in Jesus He will lighten ev’ry care,
So that when the battle’s over, and we never more shall roam,
He will lead us to that heav’nly home.

26. Jehovah Notice improvised by Kim Dailey

Achan took a wedge of gold,
Silver and a robe we’re told
Buried them inside his tent
About his business then he went.

Lie or fight or fail to pray,
Someone knows just what we do,
where we are, and why, too.
Jehovah noticed
Jehovah noticed
Jehovah noticed
He sees all that we do.

And went to Rome for Jesus’ sake.
