Bible Songs
Verses & Stories

Bible songs here at "Sing the Bible Story" are both verses from scripture itself, and also accounts or stories from the Bible - all set to music!


From Isaiah 53, a song about how God laid the sins of all of us onto One Man, the Messiah.

All of Us Like Sheep

The words of Isaiah 53:6, speaking of how God laid our sins on the Christ, His Son.

The melody and the repetition built into this Bible verse song help to memorize this important verse.

As I Called, and They Would Not Hear Bible teaching songs

A sad song in a minor key that tells how God scattered the Jews among the other nations. 

Piano arrangement and lead sheet.

This melody also works as a VOCAL ROUND.

As Moses Lifted Up the Serpent in the Wilderness, the Bronze Serpent

What was the meaning of the bronze serpent?  Jesus Himself tells us.

Don't Be Afraid of the Enemy

The words of Nehemiah, who was sent back to the land of Israel to oversee the reconstruction of the walls of Jerusalem.

"Fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!"

The Jews faced heavy opposition as they strove to resettle the land.

The story of Queen Esther in the Bible, told in song.  Piano and voice.

Esther, For Such a Time as This

This is the story of Queen Esther, told in fifty-one pages!

Drama and poetry help to learn the story.

John 3 sixteen set to music for piano and voice

For God So Loved the World

This most comforting of Bible verses with its promise for all now has a beautiful melody for its setting.

Beloved by children and musicians, this is an old Irish tune.

Have I Not Commanded You

A song built from the Lord's encouraging words to Joshua:

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous!"

We all could do with this reminder frequently!

He Has Delivered Us

...from the domain of darkness.

This song is from one of my favorite Bible verses, Colossians 1:13.

We were once trapped in the realm of death, but Christ delivered us.

I Will Both Lay Me Down in Peace and Sleep, Psalm lyrics from Psalm 4:8

This Bible verse song will grow on you.

A very simple melody, with a simple message of trust in the Lord.

I Will Save My People, a Zion Song

From the book of Zechariah come these verses about the Lord gathering His people from the east and from the west.

At that time, when the Lord returns to Zion, children will play in the streets, and old men and women will sit with their staffs in the streets of Jerusalem, for it will be safe for all ages!

The Kinsman Redeemer

The entire gospel story - the fall of the human race, the expulsion from Paradise, God's promise of a Redeemer.

Then, the coming of the Redeemer, both God and man - and the great Work He accomplished.

The Lord is Not Slow to Fulfill His Promise

The coming of the Lord will be at the right time... for He is calling all who will repent - all who will change their mind about Him.

Not One of His Bones Will Be Broken, Passover Music

This song mentions prophecies about the Messiah, who would become the Passover Lamb and then be resurrected, the reason we celebrate Easter.

Rejoice Not Over Me

This Bible verse song has very much the feeling of an American cowboy or western song, because of the "boogie" sound of the left hand.

Your Sunday School kids are likely to find this song easy to sing!

Secret of the Names - the Genealogy of Jesus Christ

There is a message of salvation, a prophecy, hidden in the meaning of the names of Jesus's first ten grandfathers.

From Adam to Noah, read what they signify!

This song is part of "The Scarlet Thread", part of the weaving of the tapestry of God's plan.

Seek the Lord and His Strength

A song for those in fear or sorrow... needing comfort, assurance, or peace.

Sometimes, if there has been a death, there are no words but the words of this Bible verse song: "Seek the Lord..."

There is Neither Jew Nor Gentile

From Galatians 3:28, a song which reminds us that in God's eyes we are all equal, whether Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female.

There is One God

And energetic song to learn this short verse by.

Thou, Bethlehem Ephrathah, a Christmas memory verse

Micah 5:2 - This is the prophecy that the priests and scribes quoted to wicked King Herod when he demanded to know where the Christ was to be born.

This is a stirring song, highlighting the exciting description of the Messiah as one who is "from old, from everlasting!"

Trust in the Lord

The beautiful words of Proverbs 3 verse 5:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding."

Sheet music for piano, about Deuteronomy 6:6 -

You Shall Love the Lord Your God With All Your Heart

This Bible verse song has a very simple melody, and the message is simple too!

It is the famous verse about teaching God's words to our children, when we walk along the way, when we lie down, when we rise up!

You Will Not Abandon My Soul 

This comforting psalm speaks about the Christ not being left in the grave.

It also speaks of us, God's human children, not being abandoned.

God gives us to know that the grave is not the end.
