10,000 Reasons... Or, Even More!

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be heading to worship with my church family.  After all, this is SONday!

Like normal, I'll attend our Bible study (Adult Sunday school) class. 

Afterwards, we'll go to the sanctuary and worship.  In spirit.  In truth.  And, through music.

Some music that has been on my heart for a long time, is sung by Matt Redman, and is entitled, 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord o my soul).  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSxocnIaN0A.  The lyrics are below.

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord o my soul)

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His
Holy Name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship
Your Holy Name

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
 
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His
Holy Name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship
Your Holy Name

You're rich in love
And you're slow to anger
You're name is great
And your heart is kind
For all your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His
Holy Name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship
Your Holy Name

And on that day
When my strength is failing
The end draws near
And my time has come
Still my soul will sing
Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
And then forevermore

Forevermore...

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His
Holy Name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship
Your Holy Name

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His
Holy Name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship
Your Holy Name

Yes, I'll worship You're Holy Name...

As the lyrics tell us, we need to bless the Lord. 

We need to worship His Holy Name.

And, we need to sing.

Just as we read, in Psalm 100:2, "Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing."

I know I'll enjoy praising Him.

I'll enjoy worshipping Him... in every way.

After all, He has given us so very many reasons to do this.  10,000 Reasons, as the song title tells us.  Or, even more.

My friend, I pray that you will do the same thing. 

Have a blessed Lord's Day!


Until next time...
