Bless the Lord

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before, oh my soul
Worship His holy name

When interviewed about one of his newest songs Matt Redman described the difference between God blessing us and us blessing the Lord by restating John Piper's summation that,

"when God ‘blesses’ us we are in a sense being added to, and having our lives enriched. But of course when we say we “bless the Lord,” it’s different; we’re not adding to God or enriching Him in any way, we are simply recognizing his richness and bounty, and expressing our thanks and praise for it."

This particular song is based on Psalm 103 as it attempts to list the many reasons we have to thank and bless the Lord for all His mercies and the grace He shows us.

Psalm 103:1
Bless the Lord, O my soul
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!


I hope you are prepared to come worship in numbers tonight.
I hope you are unprepared to come worship tonight but that you do and God does something incredible in your heart anyway.
