Bible Memorization - Psalm 63 v 3 & 4

What do you think?

Could you do it?

Memorize a chapter of one of the Books of the Bible!

Yeah that's not so easy,  


you can learn a verse of the Bible.

Let's actually learn 2 short verses from one of the longest books of the Bible, one of the best known from the Old Testament.

The Book of Psalms. 

Most people would consider this a rather daunting challenge especially if they have never learned any scripture before.

Well today we are not going to tackle all of Psalm 63 but we will take on the third and fourth verses. 

"Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. 
Thus will I bless You while I live:  I will lift up my hands in Your name."


In memorizing this verse let's look at 3 things:

  • Memorising Tips
  • A Music Video of Psalm 63 v 3&4
  • Some Freebies to help you.

Memorising Tips
If you read the Top 10 Ways to Learn Scripture you will see that I give 10 tips to help in this process but we don't have to use all 10 of them on each verse - just the ones that suit best with the verse.

For Psalm 63 v 3 & 4 I'm going to advise using tips 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10

1.  Read the verses often, every day, multiple times in the day.

Leave a bookmark in your bible and every time you go past it grab the bible and open at the verse etc.  (you will pick up other ideas later in this post).

Reading and repeating somethings over and over is the natural way to get it into your head.

With these 2 verses it is obvious to think of it in two parts verse 3 and verse 4 but also to think of each verse in 2 halves.

"Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. 
Thus will I bless You while I live:  I will lift up my hands in Your name."

2.  Write out the verse several times.

Why?  Because he action of  WRITING  helps us learn anything.

Because in each of these 2 verses it seems like there are two parts, those two parts can be written on a line each    

So you are writing each verse in two halves just as reading it in the two halves as in no.1 above.

Up to date to HERE!

4.  Personal testimony - Action from you and more action from you.

These two verses are a great testimony to show praise and honour and obedience to God

Verse 3 talks of God's great care for us and then the right response to this is for us to thank Him and Praise him.   

Then Verse 4 continues with more response from us in that we will Bless God all our days and lift our hands in surrender to Him.

This is an example of a verse followed by a natural continuation in the following verse.

So always think of the testimony and recognition of God's lovingkindness and our natural reaction to that to help you get the two verses flowing into one complete thought.

8.  Make it easy to see the verse clearly and regularly each day.

In no.1 above I mentioned your bible and a bookmark


we cannot have our Bible at hand every moment of the day so if you feel you need frequent readings of the verse like pop-up reminders then do the following:

Get a post-it pad and write the verse out clearly on it then tear off the post-it and stick it on
  • the mirror you will use first thing each morning and last thing each night
  • the front cover of your Bible
  • the front cover of the book you are currently reading
  • the door of the fridge
  • the inside of the door of the cupboard where you go to get your favourite mug for that cup of coffee

9.  Make or use Bible Verse Graphics 

The 2 pictures of these 2 verses Psalm 63 v 3 & 4 near the start of this post are examples of Bible Verse Graphics.

A picture with the words written on it clearly.
By making these yourself you will learn as you create them.


you can use ones made for you that you keep close to hand
(like the ones included in   My Resource Library)

I post a Bible Verse Graphic every morning on my
so if you want to be encouraged by a verse each day or have a graphic you can Share to your timeline or Save in Facebook then click through to my Facebook Page and be sure to like and follow the page to see those graphics in your feed each day.

or Colouring Pages

While colouring in a Bible Verse Page you will be spending time around the words and this also helps to learn the verse.

or Word Search Puzzles of the verses

(like this one below included in   My Resource Library)

or Phone Screensavers / Wallpaper

What better use of your phone - to keep that verse in front of you each time you go to check your messages.

For this you will need it to be a suitable portrait shape and size so most of the normal verse graphics you see will not suit.

I have a few verses made out for screen savers & you can download them from

and finally 
my favourite way 
but it is not always possible to use this method

10.  Sing it.

It is well known that in singing a song you can easily learn the words of the song.

Many years ago a pastor in our denomination of churches wrote a chorus from the words of these two verses - almost word by word from the Bible and because of this song I have always found it so easy to quote these verses

Fred & I have made several short videos of songs/choruses to help you memorize certain verses and you can watch the one for Psalm 63 v 3 & 4 below 

I've also prepared a playlist of Short Songs to memorize Scripture on YouTube:

Some Freebies to help you.

Don't forget that many of my posts on the blog have bible verse graphics and I have some of these available as free downloads in my

Including this one containing the two verses we are memorising in this post

that's also where you will find the phone screen savers for some verses.
