Youth Choirs
« on: January 13, 2006, 03:48:16 PM »
I need help. I am looking for songs that our church shoir can sing. Their ages range from 8-13. They need songs with minimum harmonies. If you can list the name and artist of the song that would be great.

Youth Choirs
« Reply #1 on: January 13, 2006, 04:11:20 PM »
These are a few:

This Is The Day, Joe Pace
Just Praise Him, Joe Pace
Come On Children Let's Sing, Mississippi Children's Choir
The King Of Glory, Shekinah Glory Ministry
I Just Want To Thank You, Youth For Christ

I use a lot of songs from Mississippi Children's Choir & Youth For Christ.  The songs are simple and easy to learn.

I repost this all the time for those looking for youth and especially youth choir songs to minister because I know it's hard to find songs to teach that are over their heads in the message and that relate to their ages. So here it goes...

You could choose to do a hymn and add your own flavor to it by adding a contemporary sound to it and making your own arrangement of it that suits your choir

*~ "This Is The Day" (traditional)
~ "This Little Light Of Mine"
*~ "Thank You Lord" by Mississippi Children's Choir
*~ "Praise Him" (praise Him when the sun goes down)
~ "Oh How I Love Jesus"
*~ "Lift The Savior Up" (Olanda Draper/Joe Pace)
~ "Higher Higher" (lift Jesus higher)

Here's a few simple songs that I think are appropriate for a children's/youth choir (most have very few words or harmony involved):

* Oh Lord We Praise You (Hezekiah Walker & The Love Fellowship Crusade Choir)

* Follower Of Christ (Florida A&M University Gospel Choir)

(click here to listen to clip:

* Victory Chant

* We Worship You Oh Lord (Youth For Christ)

* Throne Of Mercy (Mississippi Children's Choir)

* Lift The Savior Up (Joe Pace)

* Kumbaya (Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers)

* In The Sanctuary (Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers)

* I'm Holding On (National Youth N Praise Mass Choir)

* I Just Want To Praise You (Maurette Brown Clark)

* Let Go Let God (Love Fellowship Tabernacle Church Choir)

* Gotta Feeling (Olanda Draper & The Associates)

* I Give You Praise (Youth For Christ)


Also some other old youth or children's choir standard are

Shake The Devil Off (Dorothy Norwood)
Jesus Is Mine (Florida Mass Choir)


there are some midis on earnestandroline.com that you can use.

Psalm 34 (Youth For Christ)
Cry Holy (GMWA Youth Mass Choir)
Shabach (Walt Whitman & The Soul Children of Chicago)
Lord I Lift Your Name On High (Walt Whitman & The Soul Children of Chicago)

midis are located on that site.


The lyrics to many of these can be found at:

~ Black Gospel Lyrics Ministry


You can purchase sheet music to several children's / youth choir songs at





Many of these songs you can request from your local gospel radio station, purchase the albums, or download them from Kazaa, Ares, Warez, Limeware, or any other P2P site.


If you need songs for your youth choir (I don't know the ages that compose of your group ), check out albums by these artists:

Those are a few groups that I know of that have great music with messages that are geared towards children and youth choirs. You could also use songs by Hezekiah Walker, Joe Pace, John P. Kee, and soforth, but make sure that it's appropriate for those ages.
