Ideas for use
This song works well when sung unaccompanied, or with a simple drum beat. Try establishing a rhythm for the children to clap or bang out as the words are sung (e.g. with an improvised instrument such as plastic tubing) – but you will need someone who can teach a repeated rhythm first (see Let the children sing).
“Come all you people” works well as a sung reponse to prayers – and a memorable one when children are engaged with it as well.
