Happy New Year!


Blessed Be Your Name
by Matt Redman
- - -
Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name
************
I pray that you all will know those beautiful moments of the sun shining down on you and having streams of abundance in this new year. And that you will grow closer then ever to the Lord when there are hard times of suffering and pain in the offering. Knowing this that He will give us the strength to say BLESSED BE HIS NAME!

i love you so much, sister, and i look forward to our day together today. i am so thankful that God included the story of Job in the Bible- particularly the verses that inspired this song. what a powerful reminder to us "whether in plenty or in want"... thanks for posting these lyrics this morning. see you soon.
