Songs for Kids to Grow On!

Kids Music Online to Help Kids Choose Good Friends

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future,” one of my daughters told me.

“Where’d you hear that?,” I asked.
“Pastor Eric,” she replied.
“That’s good stuff,” I said as I handed her a granola bar.
“Yep!” She ran up the stairs.

Our daughter was just entering Junior High and the idea of choosing friends wisely began to take on a whole new meaning…for her AND for the parents.

Part of me wanted to isolate her from any potential “bad” influences while the other side of me said that they must learn to grow wisely even in adverse circumstances.

One thing I did discover is that music goes a long way in shaping a child’s heart and mind. Here are some songs that will help your children think about the kinds of friends they choose.


Many Good Friends


“…Find a hand and shake it! Find a back and pat it!
Find a pal and hug ‘em real big. God gives us many good friends.
God gives us many good friends. God gives us many good friends…”


Friends are a Gift

“Friends are a gift from God who loves us.
Friends are a gift from God who cares.
Friends help us when we’re down; they turn our frowns around.
Friends are a gift from the Lord.”


A Good Friend

“Jesus is my best friend. I love Him, and He loves me.
Jesus is my best friend. I love Him, and He loves me.
God gives us friends to love us and help us. 
A good friend loves all the time.”


Hey — Watch Your Company

“Everybody wants to hang with friends_to be cool. 
But it ain’t always hip to keep the golden rule. 
So, be aware be alert_don’t be no fool. 

Bad company will make you break every rule. 
And leave you walkin’ down a fool’s road…”


A Friend like Barnabas

“What kind of friend do you want to be? What is it others will say?
Do you give more than what you expect in return or does it always have to be your way?
Make me a friend like Barnabas, encouraging, faithful and true.
Give me a heart of compassion, showing love in all I do.”
