I am always searching for scripture in songs since Bear and J-jo memorize so readily when something is put to a tune. Mega Verses is just that. Tommy and Jo Hendricks of Mega Verse Ministries strive to help families memorize scripture and do so with the help of all their children! The Hendricks are in their fourth year of Classical Conversations and have even put Exodus 20:1-17 (the lengthy Cycle 1 Bible memory work) to music and included it on their latest album, Mega Verses Volume 3: All Scripture. I’m so thankful they have done that as it’s made it so much easier to remember these verses!
Bible verse memorization is not something with which I grew up, but it is something my husband and I are focusing on with our children. Living the Word starts with knowing the Word so we want lots of verses hidden in their hearts (and in the process, ours as well!). There are many great resources out there for that and I’m glad to have Mega Verses to add to our arsenal.
Here are the songs in Volume 3:
- Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-26
- Follow Me – Luke 9:23-24
- Rejoice – Matthew 5:3-12
- Be With You – Philippians 4:4-9
- All Scripture – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
- Unless the Lord – Psalm 127
- Eternal Life – John 3:16-18
- Living Sacrifice – Romans 12:1-2
- Saved – Romans 10:9-13
- Iniquity of Us All – Isaiah 53:4-6
- How Beautiful – Romans 10:14-15
- Treasures – Matthew 6:19-21
- Exodus 20:1-17 (King James Version)
Here is the Exodus song and actions to go with it on YouTube. It can be purchased as well, for those times when you don’t have internet access yet you want to review the song and motions.
Some other resources they provide for us are some printable posters of memory verses that apply to each CC Cycle (scroll down a bit) and downloadable lyric videos that can be used for worship at churches and in your own home.
The Hendricks also travel, doing Mega Verse concerts at churches or family events. Please contact them at Tommy@MegaVerses.com if you are interested.
