Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
And 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
And 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
And blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

Hey K,

My thoughts and prayers have included you often this last little bit. I hope you're well - body and soul. Pastor Ken used the lyrics of this song to begin Grandpa Hans' Memorial Service on Thursday. What truth.

Love you!

I'm so amazed at how the Lord can put a song in our hearts even as we face so much sorrow and see that old enemy slashing away at those we love. The Lord is a blessing and deserves our blessing. Thank you for choosing to say it!

hugs, Elsie
