“Let us sing the books of Moses, of Moses, of Moses.
Let us sing the books of Moses, for he wrote the Law.”
Believe it or not, these are the opening lines to a song I learned in College. The professor of Old Testament Survey passed out lyrics set to the tune, “Did you ever see a Lassie,” to help us remember the Old Testament books and classifications.
It gave us a good laugh, but it also worked. Whether you’re a 9 year old at Sunday school or a 19 year old at college, setting the books to song is still the best way to remember them—and the song selection keeps getting better!
In a recent You Tube search I found three that I just had to pass along.
The first, from The Bigsby Show, has a tune that’s radio worthy.
The Books of the Bible Rap by Marsh Point Productions includes an Echo that makes it easy to use with kids.
Finally, a version from Go Fish—always a favorite with kids!
