Songs of Scripture
Welcome to Songs of Scripture, where we link Scripture with the lyrics of Christian songs, worship choruses, and hymns.
To go along with our study about what the Bible has to say about children, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight a kids song this week. Kids songs are great for finding songs that are based directly on Scripture. I’ve already highlighted the Cares Chorus (based on 1 Peter 5:7) from a Psalty the Singing Songbook album in the study about overcoming anxiety. AWANA programs also frequently use music to help memorize Scripture, which is often effective for lifelong memorization.
