With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought some hearts and flowers would be in order. So in this week’s free “Scripture Sunday” coloring page, a grateful heart takes center stage.
The words come from the lyrics of a worship song written by Don Moen:
O, give thanks with a grateful heart.
Give thanks to the Holy One.
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son.
And now let the weak say, “I am strong.”
Let the poor say, “I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us.”
I suggest gathering your family to listen to this song while you color. Especially if you’ve never heard it:
Isn’t that beautiful?
You may not find these exact words all together in your Bible. But the lyrics are definitely drawn from Scripture. Check out these references:
- Psalm 100:4 – “Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
- Isaiah 29:19 – “Once more the humble will rejoice in the LORD; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.”
- 1 Corinthians 1:9 – “God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
- Joel 3:10 – “Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, ‘I am strong!'”
- 2 Corinthians 8:9 – “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.”
There’s a wealth of great theology packed into that song’s simple verses, right?

Ideas for using these coloring pages:
- Help your little ones stay quiet and still in church by letting them color Scripture during the Sunday sermon. (Older kids might prefer taking notes with this printable)
- My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils.)
- I give coloring pages to my younger kids/grandkids during school time and let them color at the table while I work with older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I sometimes assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color. That way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
- I do one of several things with these pages once they’ve finished coloring them. Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair. There’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!
