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
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 ..."
