Christmas Nativity Lip Sync

I have been swooning over this song this year. Because I have completely enjoyed listening to it I thought of this idea. This song would provide such a great opportunity for a live nativity lip sync!

So the kids are dressing the parts and re-enacting the scenes while singing along to the music. It's short and sweet, thus easier to get teens to participate! Plus it brings the spirit of Christmas just talking about what part they each want to play. Then gathering sheets to make the outfits, pulling out belts and ornate boxes and other props such as stuffed animals helps to get kids thinking about the details and reality of the first Christmas story.

Here's to shedding light on the reason behind this season! I hope it brings warmth into your homes. Merry Christmas.

I am a shepherd
Humbled by heaven's bright star
I've nothing to offer
But the peace I hold in my heart
The night I saw the Heaven's open
As angels filled the sky
Nothings ever touched my soul
Like a virgin's lullaby

Sleep tonight
Close your eyes
Oh child of mine
You bring the world love
Glory divine

We are the kings
Traveled so far from the east
Bearing gifts
To lay before the Prince of Peace
We've seen the world and all its wonder
But here before our eyes
Humbled by the miracle
Of a virgin's lullaby

Sleep tonight
Close your eyes
Oh child of mine
You bring the world love
Glory divine

We are the angels
Sent from the throne of high
To join in this lullaby
His praises we sing

Sleep tonight
Close your eyes
Oh child of mine
You bring the world love
Glory divine

Let your light shine
Bring the world love
Glory divine
