Thank you, Lord
The bird's song
The children's band
The little drummer boy

There's great big world out there
There's a rainbow in the sky
There was one, there was two
The voice from the bush
The wise man
The world is full of smelly feet
This little light of mine

Water of life
We will praise
When is he coming
When the Spirit of the Lord
When your Father made the world
