There are children singing all around the world,

Happy voices ringing out the joyful word,

We are children glowing with the gospel light,

 Standing tall, walking strong, choosing right.
 There are children leading out in every land,

 Who believe in keeping all the Lord's commands.
Like the stripling warriors, we go forth in faith,
 For we know that the Lord is our strength.

We are children holding hands around the world,
(Yes, you may use this image for home, church, school and non-profit)

 Like an army with the gospel flag unfurled.
 We are led by His light, and we love truth and right.

 
 We are building the kingdom of God.



You may wish to introduce the song using the attention activity found here.

    1. I made the pictures. I'm working on a solution to the laptop situation and verse 2 is on my priority list if I do get it fixed, but I really don't know that I'll be able to get to it until August at the soonest.

    1. Not sure why that deleted --- This is one of my favorite songs... we sing it a lot in our home... but we decided to sing it with our primary this year and the kiddos are loving it. By any chance were you able to complete the 2nd verse? Would love for the flip charts to match. Thank you for all you do!

  9. Thank you so much. The music leader started teaching this to the children today and I remember the song from long ago. I was so happy to find your site to help my grandaughter (5 yr old) and I practice.

  13. Am I able to print out the picture of the children holding hands around the world for a parade float we are doing? Completely non for profit, just to teach multiculturalism to our primary school children. Thanks in advance :)

  14. I see here there are many people that you have done a second verse for Holding Hands Around the World. I am also one of them. Your pictures are so great and my Primary loves them. If you do (or have done) the other verse, would you send it to me, please? kearnsj@gci.net I love your work so much and am very grateful that you so freely share your talents.
