DO  YOU  REMEMBER  HOW  VBS  USED  TO  BE???

My family & I have been working out an idea for Vacation Bible School.  We don’t have a good name for it yet, but we’re thinking along the lines of  “Your mama’s VBS”.  We want to do a flashback VBS where the kids actually memorize whole verses of scripture.  They come for about 4 hours during the day & have it for 5 days.  Then Friday night, there is a big cookout and program where the children sing songs & recite verses.

ANYWAY…  Here is a song that I remember from VBS.  I think it was called “The Blast Off Song.”

Somewhere in outer space,

God has prepared a place

For those who trust Him and obey

Jesus will come again

and though we don’t know when

The countdown’s getting lower every day.

10 and 9, 8 and 7, 6 and 5 and4

Call upon the Savior while you may.

3 and 2, coming through the clouds in bright array.

The countdown’s getting lower every day.

Jesus was crucified, suffered, and bled he died.

But on the cross, he did not stay

He made this promise true, He will come back for you

The countdown’s getting lower every day

10 and 9, 8 and 7, 6 & 5 &4

Call upon the Savior while you may.

3 & 2, coming through the clouds in bright array.

The countdown’s getting lower every day.

Soon will the trumpet sound, and we’ll rise off the ground

With Christ forever will we be

Children where will you be, throughout eternity?

The countdown’s getting closer every day.
