Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,
who stand by night in the house of the Lord!
Lift up your hands to the holy place,
and bless the Lord.
May the Lord, maker of heaven and earth,
bless you from Zion.
Food For Thought:
One of my favorite songs about blessing the Lord comes from the Taize community in France. The lyrics to the song are simple but they are a wonderful way to bless God and let God’s blessing seep into your soul.
“Bless the Lord, my soul, and bless God’s holy name. Bless the Lord, my soul, who leads me into life.”
Think about the ways that God has blessed you. How have you been a blessing to others? I want you to think of a way to go bless someone today.
O God, living Lord, you are the author of faith. Engrave on our hearts the gospel revealed in Jesus Christ and brought near to us by your Holy Spirit, that we may attest to this faith in lives that are pleasing to you. In your holy name we pray, Amen.
