*Song of Response: 10,000 Reasons ~ Matt Redman & Jonas Myrin


                        Bless the Lord, O my soul,
                        O my soul, worship His holy Name.
                        Sing like never before, O my soul.
                        I’ll worship Your holy Name.

                        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. Chorus

                        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,
                        Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.


                        And on that day when my strength is failing,
                        The end draws near and my time has come;
                        Still my soul sings Your praise unending,
                        Ten thousand years and then forevermore. Chorus

“I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;* the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic** church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.” ** universal
