‘Gratitude’ by Brandon Lake

‘Gratitude’ by Brandon Lake

Common courtesy would dictate acknowledging an act of kindness by responding with “thank you” or another phrase or gesture to indicate appreciation for the deed. Knowing and understanding this, how much more should Christians praise the Lord for what He has done? What should Christians do to acknowledge the sacrifice and the love that God showers upon us daily?

Brandon Lake’s song “Gratitude” is a beautiful tune with pointed lyrics about the need to be thankful and praise God for all He has done in our lives. The song also points out that no matter the amount of praise heaped upon the Lord, it will never be enough. 

The song wastes no time in getting to its central message. The need and requirement to praise the Lord are found in verses one and two. However, both verses also add that we can never adequately repay and thank Him for what He has done. He deserves unending praise and worship, the lyrics point out. 

The track draws attention to the idea that even songs of praise are not enough because they all eventually conclude but that God has no endpoint.

Instead, the chorus mentions that the only thing Christians can do in this case is to praise Him once again.

“So, I throw up my hands
And praise You again and again
‘Cause all that I have is a hallelujah, hallelujah”

As Christians, we are instructed to praise the Lord. Throughout God’s Word, believers are called on to praise God for his good works and never-ending love and grace. 

No amount of giving or praise will ever be enough to repay the price He paid for you and me. The only thing we can do is, much like the song states, praise Him once again!

What a wonderful song with an eye-opening and truth-filled message. 

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
