Yes, that is where God's message comes from! This song gives a fresh perspective for Sunday School kids, with lyrics that express that simple truth.

The Extra-Terrestrial origin song is perhaps one of the weirdest Sunday School songs you will ever see or hear.
Okay, so it IS the weirdest. Certainly there aren't any happy-clappy parts in it. But I'm betting that some of your kids who enjoy video game music will like it!
Here is a video (just an audio file made by my iPhone) to allow you hear what this music sounds like:
A closeup look at page one:
However, the truth of the lyrics cannot be denied. The message contained in the 66 books of the Bible, written over a period of about 2,000 years, by some 40 different authors who spoke with their own voices - where did it come from?
Here is the bottom of page one, which offers the thought "From the realm beyond time, God has sent us word..."
Page two continues, "Of a plan to rescue us! Tell me if you've heard."
At that point, the song returns to the beginning, repeating page one, and going into verse two:
"When the time was ready, God sent forth His Son. Jesus came to die for us, then His work was done!"
A very simple gospel message. See in this closeup of page two:
On the sheet music page itself, I have placed one of the many, many Bible verses where the reality of another dimension, outside of Earth's boundaries, becomes evident.
Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, was SENT to speak to Zachariah. Sent from WHERE, should be our question.
As far as singing this unusual melody goes, the parallel line which is placed five notes higher the second time through "We are in possession..." doesn't HAVE to be sung.
It's meant to be two parts, but if it seems too hard for your kids, then just let them sing the initial line over again, with the piano performing the parallel fifths.
The low left hand "D" notes may look odd, with "8vb" under individual D's as well as under the entire line. However, they just represent octave D's over and over, first low, and then LOWER.
I apologize that the title text on the PDF does not match the font on the graphics. It is an effect of my PDF-making program, and I will try to sort it out and fix it.

Seek the Lord and his strength is a quiet song about seeking God's presence. In times of sorrow, and of fear... seek Him when the soul needs peace.
All of Us Like Sheep Have Gone Astray - these are the words of Isaiah 53:6, describing how God laid the sins of us all on the Messiah. A musical setting.
The "Kinsman Redeemer" song describes the Messiah who came not just as the Son of God, but as man, our "kinsman," like Boaz in the story of Ruth.
