In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

This song reminds us we are all unique.

Ask participants to stand and tell them you are going to teach them a song about being special. It is called "I'm Unique and Unrepeatable." Ask participants if they know the song "Ten Little Children" (one little, two little, three little children... ). Sing a portion of the song to remind them what the tune sounds like. Tell participants that the music is the same in this new song, but they will use new words.

Sing through the song once for them. Then invite participants to join you. Call out the first word of each verse to help them remember the song (e.g. "I'm," "You're," "We're").

Verse 1

I'm unique and unrepeatable, I'm unique and unrepeatable, I'm unique and unrepeatable, I'm glad to be me!

Verse 2

You're unique and unrepeatable, You're unique and unrepeatable, You're unique and unrepeatable, I'm glad that you're you!

Verse 3

We're unique and unrepeatable; we're unique and unrepeatable,

We're unique and unrepeatable, we're glad to be us!

Note: This song was introduced by Jan Evans-Tiller in the curriculum We Believe, 2nd ed. (Unitarian Universalist Association, 1998).

Including All Participants

If any children cannot stand and sing, include them in a seated circle.
