➜Song: ‘My hands were made for love’ © Sharon Moughtin-Mumby

➜Tune: 'Hickory, dickory, dock' (traditional)

Invite the children to sit in a circle for a moment of quiet.

It’s time to remember all the things we’ve done this week.

It’s time to say ‘thank you’ to God

for when we’ve been part of showing God’s love.

Let’s wiggle our fingers!

I wonder when you’ve shown love

with your hands this week?

Wiggle fingers as you sing.

My hands were made for love!

My hands were made for love!

Thank you for the love they’ve shown.

My hands were made for love!

Let’s wiggle our feet!

I wonder when you’ve shown love

with your feet this week?

Wiggle feet as you sing.

My feet were made for love!

My feet were made for love!

Thank you for the love they’ve shown.

My feet were made for love!

Let’s put our hands gently on our neck.

Let’s sing ‘Ahhh!’

Ahhhhh!

Can you feel your throat vibrating and dancing?

I wonder when you’ve shown love

with your voice this week?

Hold neck and feel your voice ‘dancing’ as you sing.

My voice was made for love!

My voice was made for love!

Thank you for the love it’s shown.

My voice was made for love!

Thank You, God: Option 1

Hold hands up or wiggle fingers

thank you, God!

For the love we’ve shown with our feet,

Point to feet or wiggle feet

thank you, God!

When we love all those around us, Cross hands on chest

it’s the same as loving Jesus!

For the love we’ve shown with our voice,

Hands on neck or point to singing mouth

thank you, God!
