Song for Psalm 97:8

The letter Z was a challenge to even find a verse that began with that letter so finding a song for Psalm 97:8 was even more challenging.

What follows is a song for all of Psalm 97. You can skip ahead to minute 1:35 in the song to hear our verse for the letter Z. It’s a short verse so hopefully, your child won’t need too much.

Or as suggested previously, let your child make up their own tune. This may be the perfect way to end the activity for them.

Ending the Children’s ABC Bible Lesson

After you have successfully learned all 26 ABC Bible verses with your child, you may wonder, “now, what?”

The key is to not stop reviewing the verses. Although it no longer needs to become a deep study, it now needs to become more of a habit to keep all the verses fresh. You can probably recall right now which verses were more difficult to memorize than others. Those will be the first to leave the memory bank.

Ideas to keep it fun for your kids:

  • Sing a different verse before bedtime each night.
  • Purchase the ABC Memory Workbook and work through a different verse at your child’s pace. Playing games and discussing the verses as you go. This workbook can be used again and again. Bonus: This whole workbook is printer-friendly.
  • At the end of each month have a “contest” and see who can still recite the most verses from the ABC Bible memory verses. For each one they get right, they get a quarter or a piece of candy. Purchase the ABC Games to help you keep this fresh and exciting each time.
  • If you printed a copy of the Bible verse for each letter, rotate a different verse in a frame each week or so and keep it hanging up where everyone can see it.
