You Protect Me: Christian Poems for Preschoolers


Christian poems for preschoolers are great! Here is one called “You Protect Me.”

I have always loved Psalm 32:7, which says: “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”  All of us want to feel safe and protected.  It’s one of our most basic needs.  Preschoolers especially need to know that they are being well taken care of.  Just knowing that they are in safe surroundings with safe people can calm much of their anxiety.

Christian poems for preschoolers are fun and this one will help your little ones learn about the different kinds of people who are always ready and willing to protect them such as the fireman, policeman and doctor.  You may want to find some pictures of each person to show while saying the poem.

You Protect Me

I’m glad, dear God, you always keep me safe

You hold me and protect me

Your Word says you watch over me

This makes me very happy

I’m also glad you’ve given friends

That care about me too

Like the fireman, policeman

And the lifeguard at the pool

Each of these special friends of mine

Help me be safe and have some fun

They work around my neighborhood

Let me tell you about each one

The fireman wears a suit of red

He must be fast and strong

He’s always ready to stop a fire

And would help if things went wrong

The policeman drives a car with a siren

He often wears black or blue

He wears an shiny badge on his chest

And protects me from dangers too

The doctor is God’s special helper

I go to him when I feel ill

He’s gentle and kind and cares for me

And could help me if I fell down a hill

A friend who helps me cross the street

Is the patient crossing guard

He makes sure all the cars stand still

So crossing the street is never hard

One of my favorite friends is my teacher

I learn new thing each day

Like being careful and sharing my toys

I’ve learned to be safe when I play

My family also cares for me

For me they try to do what’s best

Like keep me safe and warm and dry

They want me to be blessed

My favorite friend of all is God

With Him I share my heart

I’m always safe within His arms

From me He’ll never part

  • Hi Joyce,
    Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Giving “extra ideas” is kind of what I’m all about. Every curriculum usually needs a little help now and then.


  • Kathy. The Bible lesson book my church is using is full of lessons on Christmas from here on out. Since I don’t want my kids to think they’re getting the same lesson every week, your suggestions will help me give them a little extra. My kids are a little older, but I can still use some things such as this poem. Thanks.
