Sunday School Songs for Toddlers

Toddlers love to sing, and the sounds of their voices are heartwarming. At their age, it is also one of the best ways they can worship God.

These songs have been specially chosen for the toddler set. If it is a longer song, we may only use a chorus or the first verse to keep it short enough their little attention spans. Toddlers really enjoy songs with movements, so there is a special section of movement songs!

These songs could also be used as Children's worship songs or VBS songs.

Traditional Sunday School Songs

Familiar songs suited (or adapted) for toddlers.

Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me, this I know

For the Bible tells me so

Little ones to him belong

They are weak but He is strong

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

The Bible tells me so.

I remember a lot of these songs from my youth - thanks for bringing up fun memories. :)

Thanks for creating this lens it will help with preschool class prep. You have some of the favorites we remember. have you heard of I won't yeild to Satan (when he comes my way)? i posted a very quick version on you tube as I could not find it. hope to video it with kids in action soon..when we got to the "run" part, we let the kids run all the way across the room and back again (three times) What a fun age group to work with. Another favorite is love Him in the morning, Love Him in the evening ( we start by waking up and then act out going to sleep. Guess a video would be more descriptive than trying to explain it this way...:) thank you again for making this lens.

Brings back memories! Doing these songs and motions as a kid. We did them way past preschool, up to at least the 5th grade it seems. Love the old songs. And I am a fan of VeggieTales as well!
