Looking for a little inspiration for your daily Bible devotions? This full-length album contains 8 songs fully based in scriptures – perfect devotional music for your time alone with God. The Bible says that the word of God is living and active. It has the answer to every need in your life. Music is an incredible vehicle to help plant things in your heart, and singing scripture is a biblical principle. When the Jews meditate on the word of God they often sing portions of scripture.

These short devotions in song have been especially written to help you focus on God’s Word when faced with the daily trials of life. All the lyrics in these songs come directly from the Bible so when you sing these songs you are singing the scriptures. Listening to these songs makes for a great daily devotion or as an aid for meditating on the Word of God, or memorising scripture.

Let scripture become implanted in your heart as you allow these inspirational devotions to wash over you, refresh you, and offer you comfort and hope.

 

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!

Prelude

With All My Heart Psalm 119:33-37 (NASB)

You Are There Psalm 139:1-10 (NKJV)
O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me

I Would Have Lost Heart Psalm 27:13-14 (NKJV)
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

All That Is Within Me Psalm103:1, 11-12
Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me Bless His holy name!
For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

God Is The Strength Of My Heart Psalm 73:23-26 (NKJV)
Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart And my portion forever.

In The Shelter Psalm 61:1-4 (NKJV)
Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

In Him I Will Trust Psalm 91:1-5 (NKJV)
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.
Surely He shall deliver you…. He shall cover you… And under His wings you shall take refuge; … You shall not be afraid of the terror by night.

Praise The Lord Psalm 113:1-6 (NKJV)
“Praise the Lord! Praise O servants of the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name of the Lord From this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its going down The Lords name is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, Who dwells on high,
Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?

We Will Shout For Joy When You Are Victorious Psalm 20:4-7 (NIV 84)
May he give you the desire of your heart And make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious And will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; He answers him from his holy heaven With the saving power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we trust in the name of the Lord our God

You Are There (Demo Version) Psalm 139:1-10 (NKJV)
O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me

All Who Love Your Name Psalm 5:11-12 (NLT)
But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; Let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread Your protection over them, That all who love Your name may be filled with joy.
For You bless the godly, O LORD; You surround them with Your shield of love.

With All My Heart Psalm 119:33-37 (NASB)
Teach me, O LORD, the way of Thy statutes, And I shall observe it to the end. Give me understanding, that I may observe Thy law And keep it with all my heart.
Make me walk in the path of Thy commandments, For I delight in it. Incline my heart to Thy testimonies And not to dishonest gain.
Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, And revive me in Thy ways.
