Grab this Baptism flip chart to teach this great song to include as part of your New Testament Primary Songs list! It’s only on the 4-year Come Follow Me Primary Song Rotation that year, and it’s a sweet baptism song, so a wonderful one to include!
Baptism Song Lyrics
Baptism song can be found in the Children’s Songbook Page #100.
You can find the Baptism sheet music here.
Jesus came to John the Baptist,
In Judea long ago,
And was baptized by immersion
In the River Jordan’s flow.
“To fulfill the law,” said Jesus,
When the Baptist questioned why,
“And to enter with my Father
In the kingdom up on high.”
Now we know that we must also
Witness faith in Jesus’ word,
Be baptized to show obedience,
As was Jesus Christ our Lord.
We’ve shared a bunch of Singing Time Ideas for Baptism Song here that will help you get started in teaching and reviewing this fun Primary song with your kids!
Baptism Flip Chart
I’ve created a bunch of different styles of flip charts below that you’ll be able to use during Singing Time, with whatever style works best for your needs. You’ll be able to find several free printable flip charts at the bottom of this post!
The Baptism song comes up a lot in the Primary Song Rotations lists! It’s great to have a couple of baptism songs ready for your soon-to-be-baptized Primary children!
I try to include at least one Primary baptism song in each year’s singing time, when possible! It just helps those about to turn 8 feel extra special and really start to connect with the song and its meaning as they approach their baptism!
There are so many fun ideas like a Baptism Rebus and a darling Baptism Finger Drawing activity. Or, you can get the kids up and moving with the fun body rhythm pattern that’s easy to learn but fun to repeat!
Baptism Art Flip Chart
You’ll fall in love this beautiful aft flip chart option! It includes a ton of different formatting options to fit whatever style you need. With both portrait and landscape options and a fun colorful keywords, colored images with black keywords, and a black and white color-in option. I also have the graphics with word blanks so you can add just specific keywords or use them for a fun and unique activity!
Baptism Singing Time Flip Chart
My Baptism Flip Chart is just 3 pages – one page for each of the 3 verse. You can print all 3 and create a easy to flip booklet flip chart with this hack, or just print out the verse you’ll be teaching. Put them into a sheet protector to keep them clean and ready to reuse.
This song has a lot of tricky words the kids won’t be used to, so it’s really helpful to have the words available for them (and the teachers so they sing along).
