Matt Redman – 10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) lyrics

Bless the Lord - Matt Redman

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name

[Verse 1]
The sun comes up; it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

[Verse 2]
You're rich in love and You're slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness, I will keep on singing
10,000 reasons for my heart to find

[Verse 3]
And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
10,000 years and then forever more

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name

[Outro]
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name

    AsherP is right on the money: These lyrics were written carelessly. In the chorus, Redman begins by addressing his own soul, exhorting it to bless the Lord and "worship His holy name". So far, so good, but at the end of the chorus he suddenly says, "I worship YOUR holy name" without any indication that he is now addressing the Lord. I know what he means, but in the song as written, Redman is saying he worships the holy name of his own soul. Had he merely repeated the line above and said "I worship His holy name", there would be no problem. Likewise, he could have said "Lord, I worship your holy name," and thus made the change in the sentence's object explicit. I'm really not one to quibble over minor grammatical errors, but once you notice this one, it is extremely jarring. If Matt Redmon had put more than two seconds of thought into what he was really writing, he would have written this song differently, and if Christians put any thought at all into the words they are singing to God, they won't sing this song as written.

    Asher p, you don't know your bible, I've met people like you before, someone once told me that you should not use I, my or me, in a song because it only talks of ones self so I wrote a song with the words from the 23rd psalm, it starts with the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want, he leads me beside the still waters He restarted My soul, there are more i's and my's and me in there than The Lord, that does not mean that the psalmist has any disrespect in any way for the sovereignty of God, get a life and stop messing up the church with your pharisee's mentality. Its in the bible Bless the Lord oh my soul, and forget not all his benefits. And grow up while your at it.

    This song is heresy. "Oh my soul, I'll worship Your Holy name."

    Seriously. You are worshiping your own soul?!?!?!

    That is evil. You should worship God, not your own soul.

    This is not a Christian song. Christian songs praise God, not ourselves. This is a mindless, grammatically incorrect and evil song.
