Glory to God--Hymns and Songs for Children and Families was created to help people share songs of the Christian faith with children. The variety of music, lyrics, prayers and poems form a soundtrack for children to know themselves as God's children. These 19 songs and 4 prayers were taken from the Glory to God hymnal and adapted for children by professional musicians, creating a high-quality complement to the hymnal.

This recording was created for families to share songs of the Christian faith in a natural, every-day kind of way. The variety of music, lyrics, prayers, and poems weave a soundtrack to live by - "All Day Long"! Parents and grandparents, enjoy these songs with your child as you honor your role as faith mentor.

These songs and prayers were chosen because:

    • Children appreciate the beautiful, simple, common, and sacred.
    • Songs of faith and hymns children learn in childhood lead them to lives of service and discipleship.
    • Children remember particularly what they learn through music and poetry.
    • The songs can be enjoyed by all generations together.
    • Young children love to listen to and sing with their special adults.


Here are some ways to use this recording:

    • Sing along or listen to them at home, in the car, with family and friends.
    • Play the recordings at the four parts of the day: morning, mid-day, evening/suppertime, and night/bedtime.
    • As you and your child get to know the pieces, sing or say them as they occur to you during the day.
    • Create your own prayers and songs with your child.
    • Include the calming-down pieces in your child's (or your) bedtime routine.
    • Encourage the use of these recordings at events in your congregation: church school classes, children's choirs, all-church events.
