A chart-topping Christian worship song written in America has been reproduced to stunning effect by a host of worship leaders in this country.
Based on Moses’ blessing over Israel in Numbers 6, ‘The Lord bless you and keep you…’, this version of the song features dozens of UK musicians, choristers and worship leaders from over 65 churches, filmed separately and combined into a crescendo of praise.
Launched on YouTube on Sunday 3rd of May, it garnered around 800,000 views in the first 24 hours, and at time of writing, the count has surpassed 2.4 million views.

The UK Blessing team says:
“At this unique and challenging time in the United Kingdom over 65 churches and movements, representing hundreds of others, have come together online to sing a blessing over our land. Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you.
“But the church is not simply singing a blessing, each day we’re looking to practically be a blessing. Many of the churches included in this song have assisted with supplying over 400,000 meals to the most vulnerable and isolated in our nation since COVID-19 lockdown began. This alongside phone calls to the isolated, pharmacy delivery drops and hot meals to the NHS frontline hospital staff.
“Our buildings may be closed but the church is very much alive!”
