Memory Verse Psalm 63:1
We are back to the Psalms for this week’s verse. Psalm 63:1 states:
“Oh God, you are my God. Earnestly I seek you.
My soul thirsts for you.
My body longs for you.
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.”
Meaning of Psalm 63:1
The very nature of the Psalms fit so well with songs. The majority of Psalms are a collection of King David expressing his worship of God in written form. I am surprised when I am reading the Psalms and I come across a Bible verse that I know by heart only because word-for-word it has been turned into a worship song.
Song for Psalm 63:1
Psalm 63:1 has been turned into a worship song as well. Seeds Family Worship calls this song “Better Than Life” and it actually Psalm 63:1-4. I felt like that was too much for our children to learn, especially since we trying to learn 26 verses. Verses 1-4 are repeated throughout the song, you can easily use this song and just concentrate on verse one.

Bible Memorization Review
We are on verse “O” – that’s 15 verses already! If you need to take a week’s break for review, that’s totally fine! At least once per week use your memorization time simply for review. As we move along and have more verses to keep in our memory bank, this exercise will take longer. We do not want to forget any of these. The whole point of this exercise is to keep them hidden in our children’s hearts (and ours!) for whenever they may need them!
