10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman - Chord and Lyric

History & Awards for the Song

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) is a song written by English Christian worship leader and songwriter, Matt Redman and his Swedish friend, Jonas Myrin. During his interview with Worship Leader Magazine, Redman said that Jonas was playing some of the chorus melody and it immediately inspired Matt to write this song.

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) is written based on the opening of Psalm 103. He also added that the song came together really quickly, even pretty much part of the song was actually a spontaneous moment.

Together with Israel Houghton's Your Presence is Heaven to Me, 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) also won Best Contemporary Christian Music Song back at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Moreover, Redman also won Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance for his rendition of the tune at the same ceremony.
