Michael Row the Boat Ashore
Traditional

Lyrics:

 

Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

Sister help to trim the sail, Hallelujah
Sister help to trim the sail, Hallelujah
Sister help to trim the sail, Hallelujah
Sister help to trim the sail, Hallelujah

The river is deep, the river is wide, Hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah
The river is deep, the river is wide, Hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, Hallelujah

 

 

 

Activities:   
 

Sing the Lullaby at Bedtime: Tuck your little one in and sing this song as a lullaby. Sing it a cappella so you can do it softer and slower than the track on the CD, which may be too upbeat for a lullaby.

Rhythm Sticks: Get your sticks out and “row” throughout the entire song as you listen to it on the CD track.

Personalize it!: Instead of “Michael row the boat ashore,” personalize the song with your own child’s name (“Robbie row the boat ashore”). Swap in Mommy, Daddy and other family members for additional verses.
