Thankfulness Through Song ~ “Blessed Be Your Name” {Day 10}

T

his song below has special meaning.  After our 16 year old son died, nearly 8 years ago, the healing outlet for his next younger brother was taking up the guitar.  He spent many hours, late at night until early in the morning learning how to play.   The following Mother’s Day he played and sang this song in church.  So, it always puts a lump in my throat, yet the words, still, very meaningful.

I am thankful for His abundance, even when it seems ends never meet, we have so much more than many.  And I am thankful for the the difficult times as it’s made us more aware of other’s pains.   Yes, God gives and takes away, and I will continue to bless His name!

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
