Scripture Melodies

Scripture Melodies is a website providing FREE scripture memory music: sheet music, audio MP3s, and scripture memory coloring pages.  Everything can be downloaded FREE to your computer so that you can make your own CDs for aid in memorization, or you can just listen and sing along as you click on the website.

Click here for a complete list of our scripture melodies.
Each song is word-for-word from the Bible in either King James Version (KJV), New King James Version (NKJV), New American Standard (NASB) or New International Version (NIV).

The scripture melodies aren’t just for children.  As we get older, we often find it more difficult to memorize, but we still find ourselves singing those advertising jingles we didn’t even realize we were hearing!  We do learn what we hear and especially what we sing!

We frequently add new sheet music and recordings to the website.  If you would like to know when something new is available, please contact us at  We promise not to send junk email and we will never share your email address with others.

The Story of Jesus' Birth

Christmas is coming!
For most of you, that means a time of celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Others recognize that He probably wasn’t born on December 25
and choose not to participate in the holiday.
Whatever your conviction about Christmas,
His coming is something to celebrate!
Whenever you choose to remember the birth of Jesus,
we would love to share our sheet music,
coloring pages and MP3s of "The Story of Jesus' Birth."
Luke 2:1-20 sheet music is available in KJV and NKJV.
MP3s are available for both KJV and NKJV.
Coloring pages are available for all 20 verses.
The coloring pages were drawn by our friend Allison Sowell.
She designed these pages to be combined to form a “Story of Jesus’ Birth” coloring book, featuring the words from the NKJV.
Let us know if you’d like to receive the entire set of 22 PDFs
to print a complete coloring book.

A Good Thing

 "He who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord."
Proverbs 18:22, NASB
This verse challenges me to be the kind of wife
that my husband considers to be a good thing!
And, even more importantly,
it encourages me to walk closely with the Lord,
yielding myself to Him,
allowing Him to make me into the woman,
the good thing, he wants me to be! 
This verse may not seem to be a good memory verse for children,
but it's good for them to have a healthy view of marriage. 
Our sons need to know that "he who finds a wife finds a good thing,"
and our daughters need to know that it is a good thing to be a wife. 
Here are some ways to remember these words...

Be joyful always!

Be joyful always!
That's the simple message of 1 Thessalonians 5:16.
Here's the verse in its context: 

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV

Joy is different from happiness.  Joy is not dependent on our circumstances.
It is possible to be full of joy ALWAYS--no matter how great or how awful
our circumstances seem to be.
We CAN be joyful, we CAN give thanks,
because our Father can be trusted to accomplish His will
in our lives--in all circumstances.   
Here are several ways to remember these words...

(Laura and Megan recorded this with me when they were 5 and 4.)

Are you full of joy today?  Emoji

Psalm 56:3-4

"When I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?" Psalm 56:3-4, NIV

I wrote this melody when my oldest girls were five and four.  You can hear four-year-old Megan in the MP3.  Megan is 17 now, and she's helping me with blog graphics.  She designed the "pin" above.  Thanks, Megan!

Psalm 1

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish."
Psalm 1:1-6, KJV

Proverbs 31:10-31

"Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
'Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.'
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates."
Proverbs 31:10-31, NKJV

Proverbs 30:32-33

"If you have been foolish in exalting yourself
Or if you have plotted evil, put your hand on your mouth.
For the churning of milk produces butter,
And pressing the nose brings forth blood;
So the churning of anger produces strife."
Proverbs 30:32-33, NASB

Tomorrow (Proverbs 27:1; James 4:13-15)

"Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth."
Proverbs 27:1, NASB
"Come now, you who say,
'Today or tomorrow,
We will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.'
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow.
You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
Instead, you ought to say,
'If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.''
James 4:13-15, NASB

Proverbs 26:20-21

"Where there is no wood, the fire goes out;
And where there is no talebearer, strife ceases.

And wood to fire,
So is a contentious man to kindle strife."
Proverbs 26:20-21, NKJV

Go to the ant...

The Sluggard Song
"Go to the ant, O sluggard,
Observe her ways and be wise,
Which, having no chief,
Officer or ruler,
Prepares her food in the summer
And gathers her provision in the harvest.
How long will you lie down, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
'A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest'—
Your poverty will come in like a vagabond
And your need like an armed man."
(Proverbs 6:6-11, NASB)

"I passed by the field of the sluggard
And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense,
And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles;
Its surface was covered with nettles,
And its stone wall was broken down.
When I saw, I reflected upon it;
I looked, and received instruction.
'A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest,'
Then your poverty will come as a robber
And your want like an armed man."
(Proverbs 24:30-34, NASB)
