Social media has been awash these last few weeks with wonderful renditions of ‘The Blessing’. The original version on YouTube has been watched and listened to over 16 million times since its release in March. These beautiful words from Numbers 6:24-26, have brought so much comfort to God’s people over the centuries. Hearing them sung as worship has an added depth of joy.
I’m sharing this stunning Celtic version with you today, led by Scottish worship leader and songwriter Steph Macleod. It beautifully blends the Gaelic language with the music and the English words, and captures our culture in the various accompanying instruments.
Whether you watch this in Scotland, the UK, or from other Nations, we at ESPS Ministries pray this Blessing upon you and yours today.
Numbers 6:24-26 New International Version (NIV)
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
