“The Blessing” | Elevation Worship
“The Blessing” is a live recording by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, and Elevation Worship. The lyrics of this song are extracted from Scripture, and according to Chris Brown of Elevation Worship, “this song comes along and is relentless in the encouragement and blessing it delivers from scripture over them, along with the assurance that God is with us and for us always.”
The song begins peacefully, with an ethereal feel, and moves into a passionate rejoicing in the blessings of God, performed with the spirituality and excellence that is typical of the worship leaders from Elevation.
