We’ve assembled this list of the top 30 Sunday School songs sung by kids around the world. They may be sung in different languages, but these songs have stood the test of time. You are blessed if you have a worship leader on your Sunday School team that can write your own material, but for the rest of us, sticking with these tried and true songs provides great value in addition to the Sunday School lessons for kids that we teach.
Top 30 Sunday School Songs for Kids
Your winning songs will be those that are demonstrative in nature. What kid doesn’t like acting goofy while singing a song? Imagine the mass hysteria when all 20 kids crack up laughing while doing crazy neck, hand, and feet movements, twirling around singing Father Abraham Had Many Sons.
Sunday School Songs for kids are not just about entertainment. Their purpose should be to edify and plant that small seed of familiarity with God, the Bible, and characters in Scripture so that many years from now, that seed has fully grown into a deep-rooted anchor of faith. Something so simple as Jesus Loves Me, has a profound theological impact, not just on a 6-year old kid, but also on an adult.
Have fun picking your Sunday School songs and enjoy this list of the Top 30 Sunday School Songs for Kids. As you go through the list, you’ll quickly remember and sing along.
