Father Abraham for Today’s Kids

I was just sent this simple yet well produced lyric video of the old kid’s worship song Father Abraham. Kids today love lots of movement, color, and energy. That’s what you get in this video. They put a unique twist on the lyrics about moving your limbs without losing complete resemblance to the original, which I like. Thanks to Andy Wilson at CrossKid Nation for sending it my way. Here is the link to the video: http://youtu.be/Nmx1DKeGbcY

If you pay close enough attention, you can hear the lyric “and daughters too!” after “had many sons,” which I think is a fun addition to the song. Kids love chiming in with special inserts when they sing songs, so I commend Andy and friends for making that addition.
