Okay, so Q and Z are about the only 2 letters in the alphabet that I couldn’t find an astronomy related memory verse for. In fact, I couldn’t find one for any of our creation themes the past few years so I just keep recycling this one over and over. It’s a verse worth knowing well!
This Week’s Memory Verse: Q is for…
“Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.” Psalm 119:88
Hymn of the Week: “The Love of God” (Lehman/Mays)
The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell,
It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled and pardoned from his sin.
Oh love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure, the saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, tho stretched from sky to sky.
This Week’s Memory Verse: P is for…
“Praise him, sun and moon, praise Him all you shining stars!” -Psalm 148:3
(Last year, we memorized this whole chapter as a family and included portions in Hawaiian. This particular verse reads “E halelelu aku ia ia, e ka la, a me ka mahina, E halelu aku ia ia, e na hoku malamalama a pau.”)
Hymn of the Week: “Beneath the Cross of Jesus” (Clephane/Maker)
Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand
The shadow of a mighty Rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noon-tide heat, and the burden of the day.
Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of One who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears two wonders I confess-
The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.
I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain nor loss,
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.
(E halelu aku oukou ia Lehova!)
This Week’s Memory Verse: O is for…
“Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.” -Psalm 102:25,26
Hymn of the week: Fairest Lord Jesus (Seiss/Willis)
Fairest Lord Jesus! Ruler of all nature, O thou of God and man the Son!
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown!
Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the woodlands, Robed in the blooming garb of spring: Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, Who makes the woeful heart to sing.
Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight,
and all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shined purer, Than all the angels heaven can boast.
Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations! Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, Praise adoration, Now and forever more be Thine!
