THE MIRACLE - ALL THE WAY FROM MUMBAI, INDIA

I’ve seen many children’s groups sing “The Miracle” before (and I love them all) – but this one is special. This group is from Mumbai, India. And their video made me cry. 

If you’ve been on my website before, you’ll know that I wrote “The Miracle” in a car on my way to Chicago, and you’ll know that I wrote it for my primary (a children’s group in my local church congregation).

    Okay, to start with, I know what you're thinking. "How am I going to teach 3 verses?!" Which might be code for, "What in the world was she thinking?!" 

    Well, I was thinking that I just HAD to have that 3rd verse, because it's the most beautiful, and because the song kind of 'grows up,' just like a child does. And I'm also thinking about several easy ways to teach it. Yes. Easy. 

    Here are a few ideas for you, and then a detailed description of how to teach the song quickly -- with NO visual aids:
