Blessed Be The Name of the Lord ~ hymn

Blessed Be The Name of the Lord

We started our worship this morning with this lovely hymn. The joy, the hope, the recognition that not everything will be easy

YET

I will choose to say “Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

It is a choice. Job is a great example of one who chose to praise the name of the Lord through it all. Paul is another; suffering all sorts of difficulties, Paul still chose to bless the name of the Lord. David wrote many psalms that praised the Lord through difficulties. What about Naomi? Or Mary? We can find many, many examples in the Bible of those who praised the name of the Lord through it all.

These sets of lines:

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.
I hope this song will bring you encouragement through the sunshine and the rain that will fall in your life. There is nothing that can provide comfort except Jesus.
Blessings,
At Home.
