Jeremiah was a Prophet

August 20, 2008

We’ve been studying prophets in our kindergarten Bible class. The other day at lunch I was trying to think of a song for the lesson and a girl at work came up with the song, “Jeremiah was a prophet” to the tune of the bullfrog song. I thought it was cute so that night I taught my kids the song, however, I couldn’t remember all the lines that she had come up (and hers ryhmed) so I made up my own. It went like this:

Jeremiah was a prophet.
He was a good friend of mine.
He taught the people to do what God said
Cause that’s what God said to do.

When I got to the end, the room was silent. Then one little girl made a face and said, “Oh,Mrs. Paula, that was really awful!”

So, readers here’s your mission if you chose to accept it. Help me rhyme….

Jeremiah was a prophet

    The best would be:

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    Was a good friend of mine.
    The people never liked a single word he said,
    And the Recabites wouldn’t drink wine.

    However, that might be a bit obscure. How ’bout:

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    Tried to keep God’s people in line.
    They never listened to a single word he said
    And really gave him a hard time.

    Grace and peace,

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    Was a good friend of mine,
    The people wouldn’t listen to the things he said,
    And that’s why he would weep and cry.

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    and a good friend of mine.
    he said if we do what God said,
    everything will turn out fine.

    Paula, maybe you can take all the verses you get and make a song

    Here’s my attempt:

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    God called him when he was young,
    Go and tell the kings of Israel,
    That their troubles have just begun.

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    He was always a good man of the Lord,
    The people didn’t always want to listen to him,
    But He always told them God’s Word.

    I don’t know the bullfrog song. What’s the meter?

    Our family likes this one that we made up:

    Jeremiah was a prophet,
    Was a weeping prophet too.
    No one ever heard a word he said,
    But he did what God said do!

    The last line always changes depending on our mood, but we sing the top three often when we talk about Jeremiah around the house. 😉

    Hope that helps. 😉
