A little singing at Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is a must. Ask the children to stand when it is time for the Gospel Acclamation so they can be ready to sing this simple tune with gusto. All adults, even those who are uncomfortable with their singing skills, can manage to lead this example and my other easy example of Halle Halle Hallelujah. The children quickly catch on to the hand actions of this Children’s Liturgy song.
“Alleluia Praise to God” Children’s Liturgy Song:
Lyrics: (Tune: “Mary Had a Little Lamb”)
Alleluia, Praise to God, Praise to God, Praise to God
Alleluia, Praise to God, Alleluia!
- every time Alleluia is sung, move hands in a big circle
- every time Praise to God is sung, clap your hands
