I often mention singing together as a family because it’s one of my favorite memories of when our kids were all home. We sang with them from the time they were very little, all the way through their teen years.
Also, we also played good Christian music when we were in the car when they were playing, or even at nap time. We taught them lots of worship songs for children. They learned scripture songs, kids’ choruses, and hymns. Here are 5 easy hymns to teach children to help you get started!
Today I want to share a list of 25 hymns that I think our kids should know because they are foundational to our faith.
I was brought up in a home where hymns for kids played a big part. We sang them at church, my mom listened to them on Christian radio and often sang hymns throughout the day as she worked.
I learned to love hymns and the message of them. Today they still speak to my heart. I want to pass that on to my kids! Music does something for your spirit, and it can also bring comfort during times of hurt. Singing together is a great way to bond with your kids, and spend time together in a profitable, enjoyable way.
If you start when the kids are young, they will develop a love for music, and as they get older the music will minister to them.
I have noticed that music continues to be important to my kids, even though they are older. It is comforting and encouraging to them. I’ve seen a couple of the kids, as teens, take their Bible and a hymn book to a quiet place to worship and spend time with God. They use the hymns to worship and prepare their heart for what God has to say to them from His word.
We sing hymns about our salvation, the power of God’s Word, what Christ suffered for us, and His greatness; we sing some hymns to bring comfort when we have heartaches.
Children’s Hymns are powerful. Teaching our kids great hymns of our faith should be part of their education, as these hymns reinforce the Biblical beliefs we teach them daily.
I have chosen 25 foundational hymns that I think our kids should learn.
There are many, many others that are good, but this list will get you started.
