The Bible Song Crafts and Activities Post Preview: Fun activities and crafts to go along with the B-I-B-L-E Song for kids.
If you’re working on Bible songs with your kids, sometimes it’s nice to have crafts and activities for specific songs. There are so many fabulous Bible songs for kids! (Here is a list of 10 Bible Songs to Teach Your Children, as a starting point.)
Today we’ll start with “The Bible Song” (also known as “The B-I-B-L-E Song”). This is a fun one that is light and repetitive. After you work on the song, you’ll have a whole collection of crafts and activities to do to extend the fun and learning.

The Bible Song Crafts and Activities (The B-I-B-L-E Song)
In case you’re not familiar with The B-I-B-L-E Song, the lyrics are short and catchy.
Here are the lyrics to The Bible Song:
Yes, that’s the book for me.
I stand alone on the Word of God,
There are some versions that have more lyrics, but most versions just repeat these lines over and over. It’s super catchy!
Here is a super cute video of The B-I-B-L-E Song featuring a darling little robot (it made one of my teenagers say, “You go, little funky Jesus robot!”):
If you are Catholic and have issues with the lyrics:
While I think kids will just hear the line of “I stand alone on the Word of God” in a way of “Hey – God’s word is awesome and what I should follow” – I know that some Catholics are concerned about it sounding like Sola Scriptura. If that is a concern of yours, you could consider teaching it to your kids with a line like “I love to hear it read at Mass” instead of “I stand alone on the Word of God.” Easy peasy fix, if that’s a concern for you.
