Girls Chamber Choir Sings Original Hymn ‘Dear Lord We Thank You For This Day’

Several young ladies displayed their musical talents when they sang about the Lord’s love, guidance and protection.

No one enjoys someone constantly asking for things, never appreciative of what they have been given in life. Instead, a simple “thank you” is usually the right move in most situations. Most people, especially in the United States, are blessed beyond measure. However, a lot of people want more, more and more. 

In a clip posted to YouTube, the St. Bede’s Catholic High School Ormskirk Chamber Choir performed “Dear Lord We Thank You for This Day.” 

Throughout the song, the young women exhibit an attitude of gratefulness as they continually thank the Lord. They praise and thank Him for His guidance, love and the many blessings they enjoy. Also, as the song title indicates, they praise God for giving them another day on Earth. 

“Dear Lord we thank you for this day
Be by our side now with us we pray
Where this is darkness may Your light shine forever”

While the girls praise and thank the Lord for the many ways in which He has touched their lives, they also make requests that they bring to Him. They ask Him for strength, to continually be teaching and refining them and that He never leaves their side.

The Lord blesses greatly all who ask. In Matthew, Jesus instructs the crowd and the disciples to “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find.” But it’s also good to stop and think about the ways in which the Lord has already freely given. More praise and gratitude for those blessings will never be out of order. In fact, we will never be able to adequately thank Him.

This performance is an excellent reminder of all the Lord’s many blessings in our lives. 

Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always to God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
