Children's Worship Song - "Jesus Is My Friend" (Free Download)

My wife and I have had the privilege of being blessed with three wonderful children. Our three boys have been the joy of our lives, bringing some amazing truth, life and experience to us and giving us an opportunity to learn how it is possible to love as a parent.

Ever since our first son, Jordan, was born we included and encouraged our children to join us as we praised and worshiped God with our songs and lives. And while all of our children loved to join with us in "our songs", we also wanted to give them songs for them. When Jordan was just 3 years old, Carol and I wrote a song to help give language for his young heart and mind in which he could genuinely worship God. The song "Jesus Is My Friend" was born.

My hope is that in providing this song and resources here for you and your local churches, you may find it a helpful resource for pre-school aged children. What I found was that there were plenty of children's songs written to help kids jump, smile, sing and shout. But there were few songs written to help give language for a child to declare their love for God, except perhaps for Jesus Loves Me. "Jesus Is My Friend" is just one song that can be used for pre-schoolers to have a simple and memorable song of love to Jesus. I hope you find it helpful.

Below, you will find a free download for an mp3, chord chart, lyric sheet, lead sheet, Piano/Vocal score and MIDI file. These resources should help you in whatever kind of local church or home worship situation you are working with.

These resources are offered for free to anyone in need of them. You are welcome to use them in church or home.

I do ask that if you use the song in your local church, that you report their use in your CCLI reporting normally done through your worship department.
