Kids Scripture Memory Song: Psalm 1:1-2

This week’s song to help your kids memorize scripture is to Psalm 1 verses 1-2:

There are actually 6 verses in Psalm 1, so I’ll go over the next 4 in the coming weeks. Remember, the best times to work on this are first thing in the morning while making/eating breakfast (or anytime in the kitchen!), in the car, or right before bed.

Here is the text:

Psalm 1 (New International Version)

1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.

5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

*And as Britton says, “Perish means the wicked will DIE!” …just in case you needed clarification from a four year old 😉


  1. I love the concept of using songs to teach Bible verses. We used songs to teach the books of the Bible when my children (now grown) were little. They can still sing the songs!
