BIG OLD TREE
Hymn tunes shouldn’t only be for the older folks, right? Here’s a common meter tune that would work perfectly for a children’s song. The last phrase is repeated, so you can think of it as 126.96.36.199.8.6.
This is an orphan tune, waiting to be adopted by a text to call its own. If you write your own lyrics for this melody or pair it with an existing text, please let me know how you’ve used it.
