Do your kids love to sing the same songs over and over again? Yep, mine too. The great thing about repetition through song is that it makes for an easy way to commit words to memory–especially when those words are Scripture!

I really think putting Bible verses to music is the best way to learn them and help them stay in your heart and mind. Think about how many songs are stuck in your head from childhood (or from your teenage years) and how the repetition of phrases put to a catchy melody impresses the words into your mind for a very long time.

We’ve been enjoying Scripture music and using it to hide God’s Word in our hearts since my first-born was just a year old. Here are our five very favorite albums! (Plus some others we love and a few we have yet to listen to but come highly recommended!)

My Heart, Your Home: Scripture Songs for Children

This album was created by the Wissmann Family, who is famous for their traveling music program. They play their instruments beautifully and have delightful voices. The young men and women who sing on the CD range in ages from 4 to 18. Their voices aren’t annoying at ALL like some children’s song CDs, in fact they are beautifully tuned and harmonize well. (Check out my full review of this music!)

Price: $8.99-$17 depending on format

Hide Em in Your Heart Vol. 1 & 2

These classic Scripture music albums by Steve Green  have been a favorite since my 9 year old was still a toddler. The tunes and words really stick in your head and help your kids learn some unique verses of Scripture in a fun way.

Hidden in My Heart: A Lullaby Journey Through Scripture

I was first introduced to this music about three years ago and we have really enjoyed the soothing melodies put to the words of many different Bible verses. It’s great for nighttime but really it’s approriate to listen to at any time of day. I as an adult enjoy them as well, so you can listen to them with your kids or just on your own and you’ll enjoy them both ways! There are three different albums so far.

Seeds Worship Music

We love, love, love these Scripture music albums. They are incredibly upbeat and encouraging, with a mix of peppy and soft music to suit many listening styles. Seeds of Purpose and Seeds of Courage are two of our favorites! Each album is focused around a theme (courage, praise, character, etc). What I especially enjoy about this group is that they include the Bible verse reference as part of the song. They have a new Scripture Lullabies album that was just released!

Songs for Saplings

These catchy tunes are really great for younger children, but even my 7 and 9 year old will listen in at times. The melodies are repetitive and simple (but not annoying) and so the Bible verses shared are easily learned with this music.

  1. Hi Jenn ~ Love what you are doing here! Please feel free to add the CD/Songbook called “Scripture Songs for Children’s Church ~ 40 Kids’ Songs Straight From the Bible”. The songs are very family friendly and include chapter and very right in the lyrics!

  2. Thanks for this great list!!! I grew up with the Donut Man and Steve Green and am so excited to find more options for my kids!!! We love The Rizers (instant dance party!) and Slugs and Bugs.

    • So glad you find it helpful! :) A church friend just told me about Slugs and Bugs this weekend so it’s fun to come across your comment that you like them too. I will definitely have to look for those–thank you!

  3. you have to check out GT and the Halo Express!!! Verses word for word put to catchy songs and great stories for kids. My husband grew up listening to them and we got the 7 CD set for our kids, and they have memorized practically every verse on those CDs (and so have I!) Love it! Thanks for your other suggestions. :)
