Jesus Once Was a Little Child Flip Chart & Lyrics

Grab this darling Jesus Once Was a Little Child flip chart to add this fun song to your opening exercises, Primary program, or use it as a reverence song to settle down the kids.

I like to pick out a couple of wiggle songs that I’ll use to welcome in the Primary kids while the different classes are coming in.

Jesus Once Was a Little Child Flip Chart

This chart is just one of the many Primary Flip Chart I’ve shared! Head over to see all the flip charts currently available. For this song, I decided to highlight a few of the words to help them stand out in the sea of black text so the song is easier to sing along with.

In the first half of the flip chart for Jesus Once Was a Little Child I highlighted his characteristics – pure, meek, and mild.

In the second half of the song, I highlighted the ending where “try” is repeated to help give it emphasis. We’re trying to do our best. While that doesn’t mean we’ll be perfect, it does mean we should put in a good effort at becoming more like Christ.

See how I use flip charts in Primary to help you make the most of your flip charts!

Verse 1:
Jesus once was a little child,
A little child like me
And he was pure and meek and mild,
As a little child should be.

Chorus:
So, little children, letโ€™s you and I
Try to be like him, try, try, try.

Verse 2:
He played as little children play
The pleasant games of youth;
But he never got vexed if the game went wrong,
And he always spoke the truth.

  1. Love your flip charts! What font is this? I want to make a flip chart for a song you don’t have, but I want it to match the rest of the charts I have printed.

    • Hi Heidi, the font is Bernard MT Condensed.

      If you let me know which ones you’re looking for, I can add them to my short list to do next. I do have the rest of the suggested songs for NT in the works. ๐Ÿ™‚
