Song Story: “Give Thanks”

“Give thanks to the Lord. All the earth, join the song.”

Often the songs that have staying power in churches, as well as hearts, are simple and concise; there is profundity in forthright communication (think about trying to explain grace to a young child). Whether it is a repeated lyric, an especially singable melody, or a well-arranged song, something in the unsophistication causes our people’s hearts to feel welcome and lean in a little more. This song, Give Thanks, is a great example of using few words, and not a lot of time, to inspire gratitude and evoke awe.
