I'll be introducing a new song to the children, ages 2-6 this Sunday. It's not new on the internet since Seeds Family Worship have many CDs available but it will be our first time doing it together. A fun upbeat song with some tricky rhythm and a fun one at that! Take a look at the easy chord chart with modulation.

Hand Gestures 

I'm just using a few hand gestures because I want the emphasis to be on the word crushed.

The Lord = point to the sky
Brokenhearted = heart shape with hands and then open it 
Crushed = shout out the word and jump
18 =  jump

The Lord hears good people cry out to Him! Are you missing someone? Relinquish your sadness to God. He is near!
Crushed (Psalm 34:18)
