There is this great song by Matt Redman, called, “10,000 Reasons”. we worship at Church with this song, and it’s pretty dang good. normally, i don’t post just about good songs, but this one is good i’d like to just go over the chorus with you:
“Bless the Lord, oh my soul, oh my soul, worship His holy Name, Sing like never before, oh my soul, i’ll worship Your holy Name”
how awesome is that? it’s so simple, and to the point. it’s also good because it’s simply praising God. and that’s what a worship song should just be about right? not about us at all, just blessing Him. let’s compare it to a psalm of David:
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
