Do All the Good You Can (and sing right out loud)

I stumbled on this:

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as you ever can.
(John Wesley)

A credo by John Wesley (1703-1791).

Singing is doing good.  Singing with others builds community, common bonds of experience, and makes people happy.

I was walking down the hall at Tuckahoe Elementary and happened to notice this on the wall:

Addendum, September 2019

When the great American John McCain died in late August 2018, I was greatly moved.

No. I did not agree with him politically. But I respected John McCain. The quote on this poster I made (attached) rocks my world and exemplifies why I admire and respect him so much.

From the bottom of my heart, I am compelled to Sing Books with Emily because of what John MCain says in this quote. I was not cut out to be in the military. I was not called to be a teacher. But I am compelled to sing songs and Sing Books with Emily was the best way I could think of to put my singing to use, hopefully, for the greater good.

The image on this poster was one I made for singing the song Do All the Good You Can. I made a book for that song that begins with the first lines of lyrics and one red circle. As the song progresses, colors are added to the inside of the circle, building a rainbow, culminating with the heart in the bulls-eye.

Do All the Good You Can is a credo written by John Wesley for the Methodist Church. I read the credo, however, not religiously, but as a humanist. And, on accident, I discovered that the credo can be sung to the same tune as My Country Tis of Thee. I figured out ukulele chords, made that book, and started singing the song with kids in their classrooms. They caught on quickly. I hope you can hear someday the beautiful sound of a room full of young voices singing the words.

Until then, we can all strive to live up to John McCain’s suggestion in this quote.  Please feel free to print this poster and put it up as a reminder.

SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 2/18/2019 THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS, an Illustrated Song https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/06/12/the-gettysburg-address-a-great-speech-and-a-singable-picture-book/ BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2GvEReH On this President’s Day, Sing Books with Emily celebrates with THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS, one of the United States most treasured speeches, given by Abraham Lincoln on November 19, 1863. Smithsonian Folkways recorded a 6th grade classes’ musical rendition of the great speech in 1964. I asked the wonderful Paul Raiman to transcribe it and create a piano sing-along. You will find this Sing Along embedded in the links above. Singing the speech is a terrific way to learn and connect to the words. It is especially enriching to sing the musical rendition along with Sam Fink’s epic illustration of the text.
