The Worship Song...

This is something I wrote to use in our local Infant school. After our last SIAS (Statuatory Inspection of Anglican Schools) it was found that though our collective worship was good, the kids weren't able to articulate what we were actually doing when we worship. So I wrote this, sung to the tune of Sing Hosanna

We gather and greet one another,
say hello to the God who cares,
say hello to our sisters and brothers
when we join to share our songs and prayers
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
praise and worship knowing God is near.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
happy we are gathered here.

We will listen to stories God‘s given
Saying thank you for God’s good word
Open hearts, open minds, sharing vision
We will think about what we have heard
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
praise and worship knowing God is near.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
happy we are gathered here.

We will pray for our world and our lives here
Saying thank you for the all that’s good
We will ask for God’s help with the hard things
God will help us live the way we should.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
praise and worship knowing God is near.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
happy we are gathered here.

We go on with our teaching and learning
thinking always of God met here,
ekep God’s love light inside always burning
in this season and throughout the year.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
praise and worship knowing God is near.
Praise and worship, praise and worship,
happy we are gathered here.
