Scripture Memory Songs from Galatians and Philippians

A few years ago my church was teaching through the books of Galatians and Philippians and we wanted to help people memorize a number of the verses. We invited the members of the church to contribute original songs and ended up setting about 1/3 of each book to music. They were low-budget projects, but even to this day when I read those verses I hear melodies running through my mind.

You can download a few samples here.

Finally Brothers (Phil. 4:8-9)

Christ Redeemed Us (Gal. 3:13-14)

The rest of the songs can be downloaded from the Covenant Life website.

Another great resource for Scripture memory songs are the Hide the Word albums produced and written by my good friend, Mark Altrogge. You can check them out over at his site, Forever Grateful Music.

    Can’t wait to listen to these – anything to help get more of God’s word stuck in head is always a good thing. Another great Scripture Memory album was released a few years ago by Rick Altizer – if you’re a fan of Beatlesque pop you should check it out.

    That’s a fantastic idea! It’s a great way to use music’s ability to embed words into our memory. I also know of an Australian band called the Sons of Korah (www.sonsofkorah.com) that have over 12 years put most of the Psalms to music. I find that I can hear their melodies as I read through the Psalms. Thanks for sharing!

    Bob, I see the MP3s…are there lead sheets available?

      Aaron, lead sheets aren’t available yet, but we hope to have them done at some point in the not too distant future.

    This is excellent! Wow. Pure Scripture to tunes. What better can there be? ;-) Thanks for that link.

    I have used Mark Altrogee’s Hide the Word tunes in my kids program at church and we have learned a few dozen verses and the kids do not easily forget them – thanks for these new ones from Covenant Life!

    I bought the CD’s and was not happpy with the product. I am looking to return the item for an exchange but cannot find any return information. For the most part I did not find the music condusive to learning at all. Rather I found the music loud and very distracting. The heavy metal, rock metaphor is awful. For the price paid one would expect a professional work but what I have found thus far is not worth it. Scripture is there but is drowned out with loud instruments, especially guitar strumming that sounds like a someone taking a lesson. You almost feel like you are being attacked. I do not see how anyone can learn scripture using these CD’s. Sorry, but my honest opinion–I’m sure it appeals to some, but it wasn’t my taste. I’m looking for scripture to music that is more quiet and peaceful. Anyone know where I can get a refund.

      Brenda, thanks for letting us know. Sorry you were disappointed with the CDs. I’m having someone follow up with you to find out which CDs you bought, since the ones we were offering were free…

    “Brandon Gross” where do you find Mark Altrogee’s Hide the Word tunes??? Can’t find it anywhere and would like to use it for my children and the children at church. Thank you!

    We are so fond of these songs – we’re singing them in our bible talk and now also started to sing them in the church service.

    Do you have chords for these?

    There’s an Aussie artist, Mark Peterson, who has done lots of stuff with Emu Music, who has done a whole album of songs based on Philippians. My favourite is one called “Highest Place” based on Philippians 2:1-10.

    See http://www.markpeterson.com.au/albums/whatever-happens/
