Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

Blessed To Be A Blessing

 

Background

We have been richly blessed by our gracious God.  Most significantly, He has granted us forgiveness and new life in Christ.  Having been so blessed, we are called to be a blessing to others, shining forth His life in our lives.

This song was written for St. John's Lutheran School in Napa, California as the school's theme song for the 2001-2002 school year.  It was used in chapel services throughout the year to reinforce the theme for the children.

On the recording, this song is sung by students of St. John's Lutheran School.

Lyrics

Chorus
Blessed to be a blessing
Blessed to live your love
Blessed to share with others every blessing from above
Blessed to walk in mercy
Blessed to light the way
Oh, Blessed to be a blessing every day
 

Verse 1
Oh my Jesus, you have blessed me
You died for me to take my sin away
Now you live your life in me
And the love received is love I give away
 

Verse 2
Oh my Jesus, make me a blessing
In my work and play, in everything I do
Oh let your blessing flow through me
That in seeing me, may others see you
 

Bridge
Blessed for living this new day
A gift from you to give away
Blessed for sharing
Blessed for caring
Blessed for growing
Blessed for sowing
Blessed to be a blessing today
