Finger Play: Jesus Is The Light

Print Friendly

To remind children that Jesus is our light, teach preschoolers this fun finger play and song. (Sung to the tune The Farmer in the Dell)

For an added twist, instead of doing the motions, give each child a flashlight or a light stick to wave in the air as they sing the song. Turn out the room lights for added effect.

Jesus is the light. (Point up.)

Jesus is the light. (Point up.)

Jesus is the light that lives inside my heart. (Point up and then fold hands over heart.)
Every day I see, (Form circles with hands around eyes.)

The light that reminds me, (Point to self.)
That Jesus is the light that lives inside my heart. (Point up and then fold hands over heart.)
