Scripture Memory Songs–and a giveaway!
If you’ve read any of my posts about our Bible lessons, you know how much I value music for helping us memorize Scripture. When possible I love to find a CD with our verse on it so I can include it in our iPod playlist. If I can’t find one, I’ll try to set the verse to a familiar tune. Here are the CDs we have in our personal library right now:
- Hide ’em in Your Heart Vols. 1 and 2 by Steve Green
- Sing the Word: A New Commandment and Sing the Word from A to Z by the Harrow Family
- Scripture Rock (Vol. 1), Vol. 2 and Vol. 3
- Hidden In My Heart: a Lullaby Journey Through Scripture CD (These songs are beautiful, but they’re not really for memorization. I’m not sure what translation they’re based on, but they don’t seem to be word for word, and it seems like they sometimes combine several separate verses for a song. I still love it for background music and getting Scripture into my little ones’ hearts, if not necessarily their heads. It’s very soothing for Elijah, and I plan on playing it a lot once Arianna arrives.)
And I’m always looking for new ones. I’ve had my eye on the “Seeds Family Worship” CDs for a while, and today I found out about a giveaway of a couple other CDs that sound wonderful! So I thought I’d write about it, both so I can enter the giveaway and to share with you! Here’s a quick glimpse at what’s being offered:
“God’s Word From A to Z”
“Ascending”, “Pure Words” and “Songs From the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s”
Jamie Soles has produced three albums of Psalms set to music. Nearly all of the Psalms on these albums are word for word taken from the English Standard Version and each song is a full Psalm (Psalm 46 is divided into two songs).
Ascending – Psalms 120-134, The Psalms of Ascent
Pure Words – Psalms 1-16
Songs From the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s – A collection of Psalms from Psalm 42-69
