Your Subwoofer Will Love Pop Scripture Memory Songs

better-than-life-slide

About 13 months ago, my wife suggested to me that I put some Scriptures to music, as a memorization tool for our four children. She told me she’d had trouble finding such a tool that was musically current. Having written “virtues” songs and Bible-story songs for Rethink’s 252 Basics curriculum, I had experience in crafting songs for students that sounded like radio pop/rock. But would this really work with Scripture? I was about to find out.

We spent the next year working on an album of 12 Scripture memory songs, which we titled Better Than Life: Pop Scripture Songs (from Psalm 63:3-4: “Because Your loving-kindness is better than life…).

I had a blast writing and producing the project, with help from producer Ricky Rodriguez. All four of my children participated by singing, playing instruments, and helping arrange vocal parts; one of them even helped write a couple of the songs.  Featured vocalists include friends like Chrystina Fincher (Northpoint, Catalyst, Bigstuf), Chris Coleman (Northpoint, Bigstuf, Chris Coleman Band), Mike and Jimmy Atkins (of Second Hand City), and new friends Jill Howard and BJ Tallant (whose rap is one of my favorite moments on the album).

The result was a full-length pop/rock album with sounds reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida, The Shins, and even Weezer.

We are partnering with ReThink/Amber Sky Records and Friendly City Records to release this album to the public. We’re also booking tour dates for the Better Than Life: Pop Scripture Songs Live experience.

June 11th: Community Concert, Fallston NC More info.

June 12th: Grace Fellowship, Snellville GA  Tickets/Info.

June 14th: Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Columbus GA – FREE!  More info.

June 30th: Mountain Grove Church, Granite Falls NC  More info.

August 25th: Mountain Grove Church, Granite Falls NC  More info.

Before we even headed into the studio, my kids had memorized these Scriptures by listening to my first, rough demo recordings of the songs. I found out early on that it works; these songs truly embed memory verses into kids’ hearts and minds. I hope you enjoy them as much as we have – and still are!

Guyana Missionaries The Runyons Offer Daily Scripture Songs In A Dozen Albums

ss runyons

The Runyons explain their heart’s desire is that people would be able to memorize the precious “Word Of God”… Scripture Songs has been a proven way to get this done. The tune literally locks the verses in your mind. They not only use the Old King James Bible… They believe it is 100% true and accurate. They never planned to try to “make money” with our music. They gave away 1,000s of poorly recorded cassette tapes in the early days of our ministry. Then CDs came along and we gave away 1,000s of those. Then they got the idea to put the songs into a series, and have then professionally done. Daily Scripture Songs was born… They now have SONG for everyday. The whole program was expensive to produce and now we have found a way for this program to be a blessing to a lot of people. They want a lot of people to get the CDs for the same reason they always did… “To Learn The Bible”…

To get acquainted with their songs they offer a free sampler album, which is their 3 favorite songs from each of the dozen monthly themed albums.

With Texas Sized Heart David Crain Sings Forever: The Word of the Lord

David Crain banner

David Crain’s album Forever: Word of the Lord is just simply perfect to listen to.   It flows smooth like a perfect date, your favorite pancake or a bible study on a hammock.  The pace is ideal for both families to hear in the van or wearing headphones on a walk.

You want smooth?  Just listen to the refreshing reminder that my redeemer lives in track titled Job 19:25 and then skip over to track Revelation 1:8 for more about how amazing Jesus is in scripture.

These songs are passionate and performed well.  The listener will not go wrong.  Its an album you can press song shuffle on and not be disappointed.

All in all if you are new to the paradigm of scripture songs, Forever: Word of the Lord is a great way to get acquainted with the concept of hearing bible verses as lyrics.  If you are a scripture song junkie here is your next favorite.  Its easy to get to know these tracks right away and your ears will crave more helpings.

The last track is the title track and is my favorite track derived from 1 Peter 1:25 in a project, that by the looks of the credits the whole family was involved with creating.  David resides in Grand Saline, Texas with his wife, Betty. They travel the country together. They have two grown sons, Josh and Caleb who are featured throughout the 15 songs.

When you’re not sure which artist or album to listen to on your smart phone a smart choice is David Crain.  Forever: Word of the Lord gains my high personal recommendation.

David has recorded ten studio albums and has written music recorded by Chris Tomlin, Michael Armstrong and the Continental Singers. His songs range from contemporary worship to ballads and he is well known for writing humorous songs with pointed messages.

Of the five albums featured on his website, three have a scripture song emphasis.  The other two scripture song albums are “Xperiencing the Word” and “Hidden Treasure”, though these project are currently a bit more difficult to get your hands on.

The 15 tracks from Forever: Word of the Lord album are titled as the following verses as the title…

Philippians 4:8
Hebrews 11:6
Matthew 25:40
Job 19:25
Leviticus 20:26
Hebrews 11:1
Luke 9:23
Proverbs 20:1
Psalm 139:14
Revelation 1:8
Philippians 1:27
2 Chronicles 7:14
Ephesians 6:10-11
