The UK Blessing
Churches around the UK have come together at this time to sing a blessing over the Nation.
We used this video at the end of our Sanctuary Service on 10 May and several asked that we make it available on our website. It's not surprising as the video on YouTube has now acheived over 2 million views!
The Blessing UK — At this unique and challenging time in the United Kingdom over 65 churches and movements, representing hundreds of others, have come together online to sing a blessing over our land.
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!

Verse — 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
Bridge — May His favor 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
