One of Garry’s birthday presents was the new live album from Matt Redman called ‘10,000 Reasons’. The title track is a song that looks at all the reasons we have to bless the Lord. With echoes of hymns such as Amazing Grace and language directly from Psalm 103, the song is fast becoming a favourite in our household!

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

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
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

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
