Songs About Blessings: Top 12 Christian Songs
Christian radio stations for years have been playing gospel centered songs with different themes. A popular theme that comes up are songs about blessings. According to dictionary.com a “blessing ”is “a favor or gift bestowed by God, thereby bringing happiness.” However, among Christians we know that sometimes God blesses by giving and taking away from us, which seems paradoxical but will ultimately bring joy–which trumps happiness any day.

We are blessed when we avoid sinful habits and follow God. By the gift of the Holy Spirit we assurance that we are given supernatural strength to walk away from sin when tempted and follow Christ.

God does give us many blessings and although He does not necessarily need anything from us we should be bestowing blessings and honor upon Him as one day we will sing with the creatures of heaven.
Scripture: “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!’”(Revelation 5:13 ESV)

Only then can we know the embrace of the one. Who’s carried us along”
When we finally cast our burdens unto Jesus, we will finally understand the blessings He has given by dying on the cross for our sins.

Favorite Lyric: “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God hath done!”
When we count and name our blessings one by one we have a visible representation of all the blessings that God has given us.

Thankfully our God is“slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love”. Without his steadfast love our lives would be much more difficult to endure. Praise God for His everlasting love!

4. As Long As You Are Glorified
Sovereign Grace Music
Favorite Lyric: “Shall I take from Your hand Your blessings. Yet not welcome any pain? Shall I thank You for days of sunshine, yet grumble in days of rain? Shall I love You in times of plenty
Then leave You in days of drought? Shall I trust when I reap a harvest, but when winter winds blow, then doubt?”
It’s important to realize that God is faithful to bless through delightful times of our lives and those that hurt. In our pain we must hold on to Him and follow His ways.

God is the one whom deserves praise for our blessings. When we praise Him we give Him the glory due His name.
2. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Performed by Chris Rice

I am prone to wander away from the straight and narrow, but I know God is faithful to find me in my lost, lonely and rebellious moments.
A Parable of Jesus: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?”(Luke 15:4 ESV)
1. Blessed Be Your Name
Favorite Lyric: “You give and take away. You give and take away. My heart will choose to say. Lord, blessed be Your name.”
It’s “easy”to choose following The Lord when we are being given so much, salvation, new life, peace, and security. However, it is really difficult to trust when we are being burdened by hate, hurt, and trials. We must be prepared to praise and bless God when he both blesses us and when he blesses by removing something or someone from our life.
Scripture: “I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”(Psalm 34:1 ESV)
