05. Ancient Words

The Blessing
by John Waller



 

I am at Your feet
Iím on bended knee
Youíre my Father
Iíve become Your child
I receive Your worth
By my right of birth

For Jesus, my brother, has broken
The curses of all generations

By His blood, I can enter in
To the blessing of Abraham
So place Your right hand upon my head
And speak the ancient words
Speak the ancient words

Make our future, Lord
Ever fruitful, Lord
And our sorrows
May we soon forget
Make Your countenance
Now shine down on us

For Jesus, our brother, was wounded
For every curse thatís been spoken

By His blood, we can enter in
To the blessing of Abraham
So place Your right hand upon our heads
And speak the ancient words over us, Lord
Speak the ancient words

So cover us with ancient words
Words that bless and break the curses of our fathers
So cover us with ancient words
Heal the wounds that have
Lasted generations

Speak ancient words, over us
Ancient words, over us
Ancient words, over us

Behind the Song:
"This song is inspired by the book, ďThe Forgotten Blessing: Ancient Words That Heal Generational Wounds.Ē The author painted a beautiful picture of how we are to bless our children. Iíve learned to bless as the Jewish patriarchs did, with my right hand on my childrenís head, speaking the ancient blessings. As I bless others, God fulfills His promise to Abraham, ďin blessing, I will bless you.Ē - John Waller
