Learn to Sing: The Lord Bless You and Keep You

As most of you know, this song is sung at all our farewells and I’m sure that like me, most of you just find yourselves trying to “figure out” the song while the older ones at our church sing it. When well sung, its beautiful but because a lot us dont know it, there have been times where ive been part of a really painful rendition of it.

Well everyone, here’s your chance to learn it! Each part has been posted below and just find your part and start singing away!

Lyrics:
The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious, and be gracious;
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.
Amen(8x)

    Most helpful. Thank you very much. Love it.

  1. Just did a Google to find the song and came upon your site.Almost made me cry to listen to each part. This was a song I learned in public high school chorus in Chicago and never forgot it. Hearing each part the way you have done it reminds me of those many days of practice. In the mid-60s, we could still sing this song at the end of an assembly. Thank you!

    Took me back to my medical college days in Christian medical College in Vellore to the mid 60s where this was sung at the end of every divine service in our chapel. It brought tears to my eyes. Just too good for words. Also so easy to learn it now.
