"10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)"

(by Matt Redman) 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) - 10,000 Reasons



Y'all may recall when my family had dinner at the home of an older couple from church last Fall. Since that time, Norm was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, and yesterday he got his long-standing wish: to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I have never known anyone who so looked forward to going home, as you can see in the video below:



Though Norm would probably prefer that I post an old hymn, I keep thinking of the following lines from today's song. This was his heart:

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 forevermore

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." (Psalm 116:15)

I am always encouraged by stories like his and that song is so perfect (plus it has an old hymn feel).
