Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star

I had the opportunity to help in the Nursery today and learned two new Christmas songs that our nursery leader taught to the children. They both are darling and easy to learn.

(This song is song to the tune "Itsy Bitsy Spider")

The itsy bitsy shepherd went up to Bethlehem.
(walk two fingers up your arm)

Down came the starlight to lead him to the inn.
(start above head and wiggle fingers down)

Out came the sunshine to start a brand new day.
(join hands, with arms raised over head)

And the itsy bitsy shepherd saw Jesus on the hay.
(cradle arms as if rocking a baby)

This second song is sung to the tune "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Twinkle, twinkle, Christmas star,
How I wonder what you are.
Shining high up in the sky,
Showing all where Jesus lies.
Twinkle, twinkle, Christmas star,
How I wonder what you are.

Simple, but oh so sweet!

Kendell says, "That is silly, the shepherd was not an itsy bitsy spider!" she just giggles every time I try and get her to sing it. . . however she is very excited about the new version of twinkle twinkle, "I can play that on my violin she says!"
