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 . . .

It was a blessing to celebrate Easter together!  (And praise the Lord for the coming of warm, snow-less weather!)

As always, please feel welcome to ask any Worship Team member about mp3s, lyrics, guitar-tabs, etc.

What a blessing to usher in the new year praising & worshiping together … at the start of 2011, we are especially thankful for Christina H., who is always willing and able to step in at any moment to support the Worship Team on computer-projection, helping our church community enjoy ease of worship.

As always, please feel welcome to speak with any member of the Worship Team for information about the songs that we sing, including mp3 links, lyrics and guitar tabs / chords.

Isn’t it funny how years — even decades — after our last day of formal education, we still tend to mark the passing of time according to the school calendar?  Well, if that’s the case, then may the start of this “new year” also mark a new season of worship at New Hope Fellowship.  May these songs of praise be sung not for our own satisfaction, comfort and pleasure, but for the joy of bringing others into the Kingdom, and for the ultimate glory of God our Father, Christ our Lord.

As always, please feel welcome to speak with any member of the Worship Team for information & details about these songs — guitar-tabs, lyrics, mp3s, etc.

August “Name That Tune”

September 4, 2010

August was a full month of blessing.  Our annual Summer Retreat at the start of the month marked a significant transition for our church family, as we saw Pastor Edward close his tenure at New Hope Fellowship, and officially welcomed Pastor Jeremey as our new senior pastor.  The worship we lifted up to the Lord reflects all that we carried in our hearts this month.

As always, please feel free to contact any Worship Team member for song sheets, recommendations, guitar tabs and/or recordings.
