Saying Sorry to God


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

Jesus loves us with a wonderful love!

But we don’t always share that love with each other.

Let’s say sorry for the times we haven’t loved like Jesus loves.

Let’s sing our Sorry Song together.

Saying Sorry to God: Option 1

Spoken: Let’s put our hands on our head.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve thought this week

that we wish we hadn’t thought? 


Lead the children in placing your hands on head, singing.

With my hands on my head,

I remember the things I’ve thought today,

I remember the things I wish I’d thought a different way.


I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry,'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign

Spoken: Let’s put our hands by our mouths.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve said this week

that we wish we hadn’t said? 


With hands by mouth, singing. . .

With my hands on my mouth,

I remember the things I’ve said today,

I remember the things I wish I’d said a different way.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry,'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign

Spoken: Let’s cross our hands on our chest.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve done this week

that we wish we hadn’t done. 


With hands crossed on chest, singing. . .

With my hands on my chest,

I remember the things I’ve done today,

I remember the things I wish I’d done a different way.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry,'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign
