James Likens is a song writer and singer from St. Louis, MO. He is also an ordained minister of The Lutheran
He is also known as “Grandpa Jim,” a delightful and somewhat whacky children’s entertainer that sings songs about some of the great
stories of the Bible.
He became a television photographer and reporter in Oklahoma City when he was sophomore in high school. The first story he covered was a house
fire. He has followed many fire trucks and ambulances to the scenes of fires and accidents.
His first hand knowledge of seeing firemen not only work, but also give their
lives in service, helped him to find the words to write this new sing.
