The Blessing

At the Life Project we love to sing and especially when we get together at our Springs fellowship group when we gather to worship God. One of our favourite songs is “The Blessing” which written by Steven Furtick, Chris Brown, Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes. The Blessing became especially well known during the covid pandemic when different people and groups around the world sang this song over the nations. We learned the words and Makaton thanks to the wonderful Becky George who produced this video (see if you can spot any familiar faces).

As we have been thinking about the theme of Blessing this term we decided to record our own version and we hope that you enjoy the song as much as we do, and that you may know God’s blessing in your own lives.



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




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


In the morning

In the evening

In your coming

And your going

In your weeping

And rejoicing

He is for you

He is for you


He is for you
