    In primary school we sung "jesus' hands were kind hands, doing good to all'

    and then during middle school we had songs like Autumn Days (where the grass is jewelled and the silk inside a chesnut shell. Jet planes meeting in the air to be refueled and the things I love so I mustn't forgeeeeet, no I mustn't forgeeeet, to say a great big thankyou I mustn't forget!) and then we had the 'I am the lord of the dance said he' and our teacher also made us sing 'the holly and the ivy' which she'd so kindly re-arranged it in her own special way so it sounded like a hymn rather than a carole. lol.

    Oh, and "This Little Light of Mine", that one was fun, probably cause it's a gospel song.

    not really.
    you werent forced to worship god.
    I was encouraged to but I never have and never will. I just get angry at why schools like my primary school forced children in to taking part in these kind of things. If my parents had chosen to send me to a Catholic or CofE school then fair enough but they didn't.

    Well, now instead of being a song about rape, it's a song about stalking and rape?

    'I will make you FISHERS of men' biiiig emphasis on fishers everytime

    There was one that was basically singing the books of the bible.

    Praise thee the lord! Hallelujah! (split between sides of assembly-one side did the first the other the hallelujah and you had to stand up then sit down for it)

    A lot of the posted above I know too.

    Did anyone else do the 'walking and leaping and praising god' one? there were actions for that too

    "Allelu, allelu, allelu, alleluia
    Praise ye the Lord
    Allelu, allelu, allelu, alleluia
    Praise ye the Lord

    Praise ye the Lord
    Alleluia
    Praise ye the Lord
    Alleluia
    Praise ye the Lord
    Alleluia
    Praise ye the Lord"

    This one was great, because one side of the hall did the "Allelu"s and one side did the "Praise ye the Lord"s, and you had to stand up when you were singing, and sit down when you weren't. It was such fun!
    Haahaa we done exactly this!
    we also done a song that was like...

    "Walka, walka, walka, walka in the light/line! Walka, walka, walka, walka in the light/line!"

    ...and you used to hold onto the shoulders of the person next to you and walk in a line... how assemblies were fun!

    Shalom Shalom,
    May peace be with you,
    Throughout your day.

    In all that you do,
    May peace be with you,
    Shalom...Shalom.

    Again, not sure about the exact wording. :ninja:
    my teacher was so excited everytime we sang this song, she would put so much effort into getting us to say it at the right tone

    Okay so i didn't memorise this i was sad enough to google my favourite school memory of all time!:

    Cauliflowers Fluffy and cabbages green
    Strawberries are sweeter than any I've seen
    Beetroots purple and onions white
    All grow steadily day and night

    The apples are ripe and the plums are red
    The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed

    Blackberries are juicy and rhubards sour
    Marrows fattening hour by hour
    Gooseberries hairy and lettuces fat
    Radishes round and runner beans flat

    The apples are ripe and the plums are red
    The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed

    Orangey carrots and turnips cream
    Reddening tomatoes that used to be green
    Brown potatoes in little heaps
    Down in the darkness where the celery sleeps

    The apples are ripe and the plums are red
    The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed, Yea!

    haha same on the religion thing, but some are just so catchy lol...

    and it depends on the hymn...some of them are just "yes come on, let's finish and get on with our lives before I kill the person next to me who's actually bothering to SING" and then there are others (like Jerusalem) where my entire school just belts it out like they'll never be able to sing ever again after that :lolz:

    "Sunday, Monday, Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday too,
    A-one, two, three, four, five, six, seven days,
    Each day different and everyday new"

    I think that was one of the first songs I ever sang at school.
