Thread Name: Bible School songs
Subject: RE: Bible School songs / Singspiration
My mother used to sing "Brighten the Corner Where You Are" to me in Spanish - although she doesn't know Spanish from Swahili. *g*

It went something like:
"Brilla encelia (sp?) donde ust' e (x2)
Puedes con (something) ....
Brilla encilia (sp?) donde ust' e."

Maybe someone here knows it.

We also did a lot of songs that were in that little song booklet that I think was titled "Singspiration."   They included:

I've Got The Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy Down In My Heart
This Little Light
Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam
Jesus Loves The Little Children
Jesus Loves Me
Jacob's Ladder
Give Me Oil In My Lamp

My favorite verse of "Give Me Oil ..." is the one that goes:

"Give me umption in my gumption, let me function ..."
