Good Friday Song For Little Children

Why do we call Good Friday good,
(Use fingers to push mouth into smile)
Good Friday good, good Friday good?
When it seems so sad?
(Use fingers to pull mouth down into frown)
Isn’t dying bad?
Shouldn’t we feel sad?
Why do we call Good Friday good.
(Use fingers to push up mouth into smile)
When it seems so sad?
(Use fingers to pull mouth down into frown)

Jesus died. Oh yes, that is true.
(Hold arms to the sides, shoulder height)
Yes, that is true, yes, that is true.
Jesus died. Oh yes, that is true,
But it isn’t bad.
(Use fingers to push up mouth into smile)
Even though it’s sad
(Use fingers to pull mouth down into frown)
Jesus’ death’s not bad

Jesus died. Oh yes, that is true.
(Hold arms to the sides, shoulder height)
But it isn’t bad.
(Use fingers to push up mouth into smile)
By Christ’s death we can be set free.
(Sweep arms upward)
Can be set free, can be set free.
By Christ’s death we can be set free,
Free from Satan’s power.

(Fold arms tightly across chest)
In that sad, dark hour
Jesus broke sin’s power
(Thrust arms downward)
By Christ’s death we can be set free.
(Sweep arms upward)
Free from Satan’s power

Do you see why Good Friday’s good,
(Use fingers to push up mouth into smile)
Good Friday good, good Friday good?
Do you see why Good Friday’s good?
When it seems so sad?
(Use fingers to pull mouth down into frown)
Things that seem so sad
Are not always bad.
When Christ died, He rose from the grave.
We’re no longer sad.
(Use fingers to pull mouth into smile)
