10,000 Reasons

September 19, 2011

A lot has happened at NHF since April of this year . . . babies, funerals, retreats . . . the rhythms of a life lived together continue to roll on.

As we’ve been continuing in the sermon series on I Corinthians with Pastor Jeremey, we’ve also learned a new worship song, “10,000 Reasons” (Matt Redman).  The lyrics resound of Scriptural references to the Psalms (among other portions of the Bible), and are anchored around the reminder to preach to ourselves, for us to instruct our own hearts to bless the Lord at all times.

If you’d like to meditate on the lyrics this week, here they are.  (But for the fullest meditation on the Lord, please take some time to read through the Scriptures, especially Psalm 103.)

Bless the Lord, oh my soul, oh my soul!
Worship His holy Name!
Sing like never before, oh my soul!
I will worship Your holy Name!

Verse 1
The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
It’s time to sing Your song again;
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes . . .

Verse 2
You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger,
Your Name is great and Your heart is kind;
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing;
10,000 reasons for my heart to find . . .

Verse 3
And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come;
Soon my soul will sing Your praise unending;
10,000 years and there forever more . . .
