MILITARY MEN: “Bless The LORD Oh My Soul!”


We usually bring you a Gospel Message from our friend Pastor Robb each Sunday, but I am sad to announce he is still sick and in great need of your prayers.

Those details here:

EMERGENCY PRAYER CALL FOR PASTOR ROBB

So in lieu of Pastor Robb, I bring you this instead.

This is so good!

A lot of top people in our Government and Military are corrupt, but the literal boots on the ground are GOOD people.

You already know that, but this video will send it over the edge.

This just makes you want to stand up and sing with them.

Watch as these soldiers band together and sing Matt Redman's 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord).

Backup and difference angle here on Rumble:

Full lyrics:

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 1]
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]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
So 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
Bless you, Lord

[Verse 3]
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
Ten thousand years and then forevermore
Forevermore

[Chorus]
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
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
Yes, I will worship Your holy name
Lord, I'll worship Your holy name

[Outro]
Sing like never before, O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I will worship Your holy name
Worship Your holy name

U.S. Marines Sing "Days of Elijah" At Camp Pendleton

Happy Resurrection Sunday everyone!

This is an oldie but it seemed like such a perfect day to post this and remind you of it.

Somehow this just feels like an older, simpler time.

And I think it's going to absolutely lift your spirits!

I love this video, and judging by all the likes and comments, I know you do too.

So as we head into an incredible moment in our nation's history, I thought it was a great time to post this again.

Please enjoy this from Rumble:

Full Lyrics:

"Days Of Elijah"

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the word of the Lord, yeah
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, (it's) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of Your servant, David
Rebuilding the temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are all white in the world
And we are the laborers that are in Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the Lord

Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, (it's) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, (it's) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!
There's no God like Jehovah!

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, (it's) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, (it's) the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

And if you've ever wondered the backstory of how this video came to take place, I have it for you!

Courtesy of CountryThangDaily, here is the history:

“Days of Elijah” is a worship song based on Psalm 91. When I came across it being sung by a group of American Marines, I knew we had to feature it. It involves marines based at Camp Pendleton in California.

These incredible marines have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. And these guys know to turn the Lord of all during the toughest times.

The men, who wave their hands in unison sporadically and shout, “Oorah!” as they sing the praise and worship song, were apparently gathered over the weekend for a Christian service at the California military installation. So, seeing these Marines come together to praise the Lord in a song with ‘Days Of Elijah’ was truly inspirational!

The video was posted by Merrie Pardee Baldwin to her Facebook page. Merrie attends Arbor Christian Fellowship in Lake Forest, California. She and her husband Jim volunteer every second Sunday for worship services at Camp Pendleton. The video was taken during the service held on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Days of Elijah
In the mid-90s Robin Mark wrote and recorded a song that would make him as well-known in the churches of the United States as he already was in the U.K. The Belfast, Northern Ireland native believes that the Old Testament stories are as relevant today in what they can teach us as they were when they were experienced and, subsequently, first told.
“Days of Elijah” have become a favorite for many churches. It is also a song of hope and courage.

When we understand the meaning of the song, “Days of Elijah,” we are encouraged as Christians to celebrate. The song shows us that prophecies about Christ and God’s people have been fulfilled across hundreds of years. The Christ — who was born in Bethlehem is coming again – – this time “riding on the clouds at the trumpet’s sound.” Christians above all other groups of people have a reason to celebrate.
