Ten Commandments Song for Kids from One to Ninety-two


Several months ago in our Sabbath School class, the teacher gave us a 'pop-quiz'. He asked us to all see how many of the Ten Commandments we could name, and if we could name them in order.

Embarrassing.

So, thanks to my friend Kim, here's a catchy little song that I'm teaching my kids. It's helping me remember the Ten Commandments, in order, even!

To the tune of 'Ten Little Indians'

I'm your only God, it's true

Never worship idols, ewww


Respect my name and don't be rude


Keep the Sabbath holy


Please obey your mom and dad


Don't kill people, oh how bad!


Stay true in marriage, you'll be glad


Don't steal things from others.


Never ever tell a lie


Don't wish for things your neighbors buy


When you follow God's rules

You'll be safe and happy!

There are several cool 10 Commandment songs that I've learned w/ my kids. And you know what? I can't name all the commandments now without singing them! :)

You know, I really have to thank you for posting this! My daughter just learned this song and was encouraged to teach it to our neighbor girl (who JUST started attending Sunday School and Church with us.) The only problem was, she could not remember how the song started. So we did a search and came upon your wonderful blog. I just love the way the Lord works! So now we know. Keep up the great blogging! We enjoyed reading several of your posts, and you have a lovely family!

I've been looking for a vernon that would work with my pre-K/K Sunday school class and this looks perfect! Thank you for sharing!
