Thread Name: Bible School songs
Subject: RE: Folklore: Bible School songs
I remeber most of those songs. In England they were all in a book of "choruses" published by CSSM (which held bible clubs on the beach at seaside resorts).
Most of them were the choruses from older hymns, Sankey & Moody etc. but sung alone.
I think our version was
"Jesus died for all the children"
and we sometimes fitted an extra word in
"Red, brown, yellow; black and white"

The joy song at the top of the thread was usually sung with a loud spoken "WHERE?" after the first "down in my heart"

We also sang
"Joy, joy, my heart is full of joy"
Since the Lord saved me
I'm as happy as can be
(was there another line?)

2nd verse had
since the Lord lives in me.
Can't remember if there was more
