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

If denied it, they sulk and pout and rage. Continue reading

A Word of Encouragment


No matter what the circumstances might look like when the days of evil come as this apostasy spreads like a spiritual wildfire, we who are in Christ will understand that the Bible is a supernatural Book. In this short devotion over at Apprising Ministries Ken Silva reminds us how comforting it is for us to know that no matter what happens in this sin-sick and cursed creation, the Word of God tells us that the life of the Christian is even now hidden with Christ in God.
