I hope your week has been full of blessings so far! It's hard to believe that it's already Thursday! :o)
I have another Hymn and Scripture page to share with you today. Tell Me the Stories of Jesus is such a sweet song. It has become popular as a worship song for children. The first verse says:
"Tell me the stories of Jesus I love to hear;
Things I would ask Him to tell me if He were here;
Scenes by the wayside, tales of the sea;
Stories of Jesus, tell them to me."
Children are very important to Jesus! In Luke 18 it says:
But Jesus called the children to him and said,
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
As believers, we have a responsibility to share Jesus with our children, and our children's children! The Scripture verse I used on my page is found in Deuteronomy 6:7. Regarding God's commandments, it says:
"Impress them on your children.
Talk about them when you sit at home
and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up."
In other words, we should tell our children about them ALWAYS, whatever we are doing!
My page is very simple but fitting for the hymn. I stamped some sweet children silhouettes onto the sheet music. I added an assortment of books that I cut out on my Cricut. Then I added an open book diecut.
There are many wonderful books available to help us share Jesus with our children, but everything we need to tell them can be found in the Bible! It's the most wonderful book of all! :o)

Since this has become such a popular song for kids,
I thought it would be fitting to share a video of a young girl singing it.
