about

A selection of the songs sung at The Green Tent including I Am A Lamb and the GT16 theme song, Jesus Our Rock.

'Green Tent Sings!' has been made so that the kids and families who've been to the camp can enjoy the music all year long. Many of the GT songs are by Colin Buchanan or other artists whose material is already published but not all, so we recorded the various originals and timeless sunday school classics which don't have many (if any) formal recordings that you can play in your car.

The Green Tent camp is all about kids having fun while they learn about Jesus - this album is no different. Each song has a bible passage in the description which links to the song's content. Read that first to see what the song means and where the idea comes from in God's word - then you can boogey to the tunes knowing what you're dancing about!

Please download or stream to your heart's content. The pay-what-you-want option is only there to enable mobile streaming via the BandCamp app. We do not ask for or expect any payments but, if you feel so compelled, any funds given will be used in future musical endeavours by the Celebrating Jesus crew.

All the riches they store
Fortune fame, cash and gold
Living large but you’ve lost your soul
Don’t you need something more?

We build our faith on you
Jesus, our Rock!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Praise for Jesus our Rock
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Praise for Jesus our Rock

Humble birth in a manger
He is friend to the stranger
Walked obediently
He lived his life serving God
Died to give us a great reward
All for his Father’s glory

Jesus sacrificed everything
He will always be King

Rock stars come and rock stars go
Looks like fun but it’s all for show
God is constant, faithful, true
We build our faith on you
Jesus, our Rock!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Praise for Jesus our Rock

Jesus commands the wind and the waves
With that power he saves

Rock stars come and rock stars go
Looks like fun but it’s all for show

Jesus, our Rock!
