More than 100 virtual choirs from nations and cities around the world have produced a phenomenon known as “The Blessing.” In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic has produced a faith response in two similar productions — “50 Countries Affected by Covid-19 Sing Amazing Grace” and “The Irish Blessing.”
The Citizen will post these multi-national and multi-lingual versions on a regular basis, many of them based on Numbers 6:24–26:
THE LORD BLESS YOU
AND KEEP YOU;
THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE ON YOU
AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;
THE LORD TURN HIS FACE TOWARD YOU
AND GIVE YOU PEACE.
For the story behind “The Blessing,” read the article in Christianity Today.
From the YouTube description:
This is a beautiful worship song written by Written by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Steven Furtick, Chris Brown. During this time of lockdown, a lot of us have been treading on difficult and uncertain paths, we pray that this song will renew your dependence on God and that you will know that Yahweh God is there to bless you. Stay strong dear friends. It’s just beautiful to get a taste of heaven listening to the different languages singing the same truth to ONE GOD. Especially I want to thank my dear friend Enoch Joshua who stood by my side for this project and who mixed the audio.
