I thought it would be good to share this song - "The Blessing" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUtll3mNj5U) which has been put together by over 65 churches and movements (representing hundreds of others), who have come together online to sing.
Technically accomplished, it is also a beautiful piece of worship music. In the words of the publishers:
"Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you. But the church is not simply singing a blessing, each day we're looking to practically be a blessing. Many of the churches included in this song have assisted with supplying over 400,000 meals to the most vulnerable and isolated in our nation since COVID-19 lockdown began. This alongside phone calls to the isolated, pharmacy delivery drops and hot meals to the NHS frontline hospital staff.
Our buildings may be closed but the church is very much alive!"
The Lord bless you
And keep you
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord turn His Face toward you
And give you peace
As we receive, we agree, amen
Chorus — Amen, amen, amen
May His favour be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children
May His presence go before you
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you
