It’s that time of year again! We’ve been busy redoing our annual meal plan, updating our chore charts, and picking new memory hymns!
For the past three years, we’ve been picking a hymn to memorize each month. We use the categories from our hymnals to guide our selection.
By this coming fall, we’ll have memorized a song from each section of the hymnal! Just two sections remain. Then, our selection method will change. My husband and I picked hymns that we think are important to learn the words to.
To not just sing aimlessly, but to actually study and learn the words of. I’m really looking forward to this year’s selection!
Here’s a post detailing how some of the tips I’ve learned over the years about memorizing hymns with such a wide range of kids.
Alright, without further ado, here are the songs Bryan and I have selected for this year.
Memory Hymns for 2016-2017
From the Choruses Section of the hymnal
From the Medley Section of the hymnal
Following Christ Medley
Which contains a verse from each of the following hymns:
*I Have Decided to Follow Jesus
*I’ll Live for Jesus
*I Just Keep Trusting in MY Lord
Standing on the Promises
We always pick a Christmas song for December! This year it’ll be
Ring the Bells
Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
I Love to Tell the Story
Since Easter is in April in 2017, we’ll be learning a song about the cross in March.
Glory to His Name
We celebrate the resurrection of our Lord this month! The perfect month to learn:
Christ the Lord Is Risen Today
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
Faith Is the Victory
Redeemed, How I Love to Proclaim It
If you’re interested, here are the other hymns we’ve memorized over the years. I’ll have to go back through some of the early ones again now that some of the kids are getting older!
