Listening: Sing Like Never Before Album by Matt Redman

About

Matt Redman has put together a great album to listen and even sing-along to. There's several songs that are hymn-like and for the collective of people singing anthemically. Meaning, historical hymns tend to be rich with biblical truths and realities. There are also songs that reflect or mirror the inability sometimes to express in a breath of words and retain simplicity to repetition and summary like in Revelation 4:8, " ... Day and night they never cease to say, 'Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!'" The first three songs of Matt Rodman's album, Sing Like Never Before, are tremendous and reflect these truths: 1) 10,000 Reasons (Psalms; Bless the Lord); 2) Our God; and 3) Better is One Day. Regardless, let the cause of our song not be a song but the God who created us to sing

Lyrics - 10,000 Reasons

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

Bless the Lord
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

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

Bless the Lord, oh my soul

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

Sing my soul, sing my soul

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

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

Bless the Lord

Bless the Lord
Oh my soul, oh my soul
Worship His holy name (For all Your Goodness)
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name
