Bless the Lord {Mixed Media Art Journal}

Bless the Lord mixed media page

Having created a fun many-layered mixed media background from a tutorial by Terri Kahrs, I was inspired to use a praise silhouette with some of the words from a wonderful praise song as the focus on top of the background.

I have mentioned here before that one of my favorite songs is Matt Redman’s “10,000 Reasons.” I love the verses, and I love the chorus. I especially love the last verse, as it calls to mind my Mother’s last days, when she was so ready to go to heaven.

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I 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


Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I 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, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I 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, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name


Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name
I worship Your holy name

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