Jesus Died for Me

Every time I remember Jesus died,
Tears come down to my eyes.
Sometimes I try not to cry,
So I just take a big, deep sigh.
Jesus did not do anything wrong,
When He was young, maybe He sang songs.
Jesus preached to all men
All the time—again and again.
When Jesus went to Gethsemane,
He prayed, knowing He would die for me.
Because Jesus died for me,
I should be as faithful as I can be.

My Family

Families are fun when they play catch with me!
Alphabet bingo is what I play with my family.
Mealtimes are when I like to talk and joke.
Ice cream I like to eat with them in the summer.
Laughing together is fun for me.
I like playing in the pool with them in the hot, hot weather.
Everything I do with my family is fun.
Sunday is the Sabbath day, and we go to church together.
