Blessed Be Your Name

Verse 1

Blessed be Your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Verse 2

Blessed be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be Your name


Ev'ry 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

Verse 3

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

Verse 4

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

Grace Like Rain

Verse 1

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see so clearly


Hallelujah grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah all my stains are washed away
(They're washed away)

Verse 2

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed



Verse 3

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Your praise
Than when we'd first begun


Hallelujah yeah
Hallelujah yeah
Hallelujah yeah oh yeah
Hallelujah all my stains are washed away
They're washed away

Great Are You Lord


You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore ev'ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord


It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only


And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord
