What are Jesus Jingles?
Just like advertising jingles use hooks and meaning to promote a product, Jesus Jingles use familiar songs and nursery rhyme tunes paired with biblical lyrics to hook you and your children on Jesus - the greatest "product" of all time. You know the tunes...Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the like. And if you don't know them - well that's what the internet is for! Singing well is not a prerequisite to using Jesus Jingles with your babies, children, and grandchildren. Have you heard me sing? It's the words and meanings that are of value. We are constantly filling the head's of our children with something. Why shouldn't we fill them up with the love of Jesus?
If you have the book, look for Jesus in each of the illustrations. And while you're at it, see if you can discover a nod to the the jingle's tune pictured there as well.
Finally, just for fun, here's one of the newest jingles just for you and yours...
(sing this to the tune "On Top of Old Smokey")
Jesus sure loves me, He's my helpful friend.
His love is forever; His love never ends.
I'm under construction; He's working on me.
To be more like Jesus, is what I can be.
He shows me great kindness; I'm wrapped in His love.
His blessings are with me; they're gifts from above.
Jesus will keep me, safe in His sight
During the daytime, and all through the night.
