Bible Songs Benefits That Can Bless Your Life

As a young Christian we sang Bible songs such as “I am the Resurrection and the Life,” “Behold, Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock, Knock, Knock,” and “I Know Whom I have Believed.” For many of them I didn’t even know I was singing Scripture. But when once I read the verses in the Bible, I found I already knew them.

This is but one use of Bible Songs – they aid in memorizing Scripture. Music locks the words into a rhythm so that this rhythm dictates the next word. This is why songs on commercials are easy for children to remember. I can still sing commercials I heard 50 years ago!

Of course, Scripture was not written as metric rhyming poetry and this makes it more difficult to match the words to a melody. How to do that is the subject of another article. But when it is done well, the words flow with the tune and each note demands the correct word.

Bible Songs not only help us memorize verses, they also help us remember the verses. Many times when I am speaking, I think of a verse and then recite it accurately. However, mentally I am actually singing it in my mind quickly. The rhythm of the song helps me retain the Bible verse words.

I started writing Bible verses to music when I first taught third grade in a Christian school. Some of the students were very slow at learning their memory verse and I wanted to help them. Music was the answer. When I sang the memory verse to them, they could pick it up and remember it much more quickly.

This has also been, for me, a means of meditating on the Bible. As the song runs over and over in my mind, so do the words. The Spirit has thus used this to apply the Bible verse to my life in numerous situations.

A good song will, in fact, bring out the meaning of a verse. For example, when I was writing a song for 2 Corinthians 5:21, I wanted to correct the misplaced modifier in the KJV translation. It says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.” Obviously, the last phrase refers to Christ, not us. The meaning is clear; the song helped to clarify it for instruction.

Bible songs can present the Gospel in a way that is not offensive to unbelievers. One year for a parent meeting in our Christian school, I taught my class the entire Roman’s Road of verses and they sang them as their part of the program. The plan of salvation was presented to the audience in a way that was hard for any unsaved relatives to ignore.

Finally, Bible verse songs are a means of retaining Scripture as I get older. It is much more difficult for me to memorize Bible verses and remember them now, than it was when I was younger. But I can still remember a song and thus, music, for me, helps me learn and retain what I am learning.
