about

To Be Like Jesus contains twelve worship songs that teach the fruit of the Spirit in a creative and memorable way.Through these songs kids will learn that Jesus is our perfect example of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,and self-control. More than that, they’ll discover that we can’t be like Jesus unless we trust in the power of his cross to forgive us and the power of his Spirit to change us.

Did you know that God says your life is supposed to be like a fruit tree?

He’s talking about something much more important than apples, oranges, or bananas. The fruit God wants in our lives is the kind the Holy Spirit produces in us when we know and follow Jesus. It’s the fruit that comes when we turn from our sins and trust that Christ died in our place so we could be forgiven and become like him.

These songs will help you remember what that fruit looks like and how growing in Jesus is the only way to see more of it in your life!

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

Track Name: To Be Like Jesus
VERSE 1
Love, joy, peace, and patience too
Grow in those who trust in You
All who put their hope in Christ
Kindness, goodness, faithfulness
Self-control and gentleness
Live in those who have new life

CHORUS
I want to be like Jesus
To walk and talk like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him
I want to love like Jesus
To give my all like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him

VERSE 2
I don’t always do what’s right
Jesus lived a perfect life
And for sins like mine He died
Teach me to obey Your Word
Help me to put others first
Holy Spirit, change my life

Track Name: Because You First Loved Me
VERSE 1
Love is patient, love is kind
Everywhere and every time
It gives its place in line
To serve another
But my heart it struggles so
I need Your grace to grow
Lord, help me give and show
This love to others
Jesus, set me free to love unselfishly

CHORUS
Because You first loved me
I can love You
With all my heart
Because You first loved me
I’ll love others too
The way You do
I’ll love them too

VERSE 2
When I love, it looks like this:
It always gives and gives
To God and then it lives
To help my neighbor
That’s a love I haven’t got
It’s me I love a lot
Stuck here I’m tied in knots
I need a Savior
Jesus, set me free to love You more than me

Track Name: Joy
VERSE 1
When I am lonely or feeling bad
When things don’t go my way
When my heart’s broken and I am sad
And tears won’t go away
That’s when I turn my eyes to You, Jesus

CHORUS
Joy, You fill me with
Joy, You fill me with
Joy, Jesus
Joy, You fill me with
Joy, You fill me with
Joy, Jesus
You are always with me
You alone can give me
Joy

VERSE 2
When my heart’s happy, my face is too
And I have joy to share
It comes from knowing Your words are true
And I am in Your care
And when I turn my eyes to You, Jesus

TAG
You are always with me
You alone can give me
No one else can save me
That’s the way You made me
You alone can give me joy!

Track Name: Peace
CHORUS
Peace, You give me peace
When the storms come and I’m afraid
Peace, You give me peace
When I trust in the words You say
You give me peace

VERSE 1
If You can calm the sea
Then You can comfort me
If winds obey Your voice
Why should I fear their noise
And though my eyes can’t see
I know You’re with me

VERSE 2
When someone starts to fight
And does things I don’t like
I hear Your gentle voice
Saying I have a choice
To make an enemy
Or to spread Your peace

Track Name: Gotta Wait
VERSE 1
When I don’t get what I want (whoa)
And things take longer than they ought (whoa)
Waiting’s hard for me to do
But I know one thing that’s true

CHORUS
Jesus, You will always be
Patient, gently teaching me
I see in You what I want to be

VERSE 2
When my sister isn’t kind (whoa)
And when my brother takes what’s mine (whoa)
Loving’s harder than it seems
Show me, Lord, what patience means

BRIDGE
Wait, wait, gotta wait, wait, gotta wait
When it’s hard to, but You say to
Wait, wait, gotta wait, wait, gotta wait
For the right time, Your time, not mine
Wait, wait, gotta wait, wait, gotta wait
For my brothers, sisters, and others
Wait, wait, gotta wait, wait, gotta wait
‘Cause I want to be more like You

You show me kindness
In oh-oh-oh so many ways
Kindness
E-e-every single day
Kindness, kindness
Help me to be like You today

Even when You see me doing wrong
Help me to be sharing
What I receive from You

Track Name: Nothing Better Than Jesus
CHORUS
There’s nothing better than Jesus
How happy are the ones who belong to You
There’s nothing better than Jesus
The One who is the life and the only truth
And when You come, You fill our lives with fruit
There’s nothing better than You

VERSE 1
What a beautiful world You’ve made for us
Filled with wonderful gifts that show Your love
The mountains and the valleys
The planets and the stars
But none of these can compare with who You are

VERSE 2
What a beautiful thing You’ve done for us
Came to die for our sins upon the cross
You love the weak and humble
Who run to You for help
You have the power to save like no one else

BRIDGE
Planets and oceans, towering trees
Jesus is greater than all of these
Armies and airplanes, princes and kings
Jesus is stronger than everything
Presents and birthdays, Jesus is better
Forever and always, Jesus is better
Better than anything that you can imagine
Jesus is better than all

Track Name: Jesus, You're My Hope
VERSE 1
Jesus, You were tempted
In every way like I am
But You never gave in –No!
You looked to Your Father
And the Spirit’s power
For Your strength and self-control

CHORUS
Jesus, You’re my hope
You will help me grow
I don’t want to sin
I don’t want to give in –No!
Jesus, give me self-control

VERSE 2
Right at the beginning
When I feel like sinning
Help me look to You alone
Help me to obey, Lord
Follow in Your way, Lord
Jesus, give me self-control

In everything You do

Father, You are powerful and mighty
You rule over everything our eyes see
You provide the air that we breathe
Sun and rain and food that we eat
You’re so good to always take care of me

He’s the greatest gift You ever gave us
When the Spirit opens our eyes
We can see the goodness of Christ
Then we find we want to do good like You

Track Name: Make Me Faithful
VERSE 1

To do Your Father’s will
Through Satan’s worst temptations
You were obedient still
You are the Rock of Ages
You are so faithful
Though I grow weak and weary
You will make me stand

CHORUS
I want to be like You are
I want to be faithful
Help me to be like You are
Oh make me faithful

VERSE 2
I too must be a servant
Today and all my days
To use the gifts You’ve given
To bring You joy and praise
Though I am sure to fail You
You are so faithful
And though I stumble
You will pick me up again

BRIDGE
Jesus, You’re my faithful friend
You will help me till the end

Track Name: Give Me Self-Control
VERSE 1
Your Word tells me I have a need
To watch out for my soul
And every day it’s clear to me
I need Your self-control
My hands and feet are quick to move
Before I even know
So Jesus make me more like You
And give me self-control

CHORUS
Lord, I’m needy
So I’m pleading
Come and fill me
Help me to be self-controlled
Help me to be self-controlled

VERSE 2
When I say words I shouldn’t speak
And hurt the ones I know
On mornings when I’d rather sleep
I need Your self-control
When I am told to sit for hours
And time goes by so slow
I need the Holy Spirit’s power
To give me self-control

Help me be

Help me follow You my God
Teach me how to be
