‘10,000 Reasons’ was written by Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin and the words tell us that we can never run out of reasons and ways to worship God. This popular Christian song has been covered by artists and congregations from all over the world.
The lyrics are from Psalms 103:1-5, ‘Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.‘ (NIV)

God is using the little children to bring forth praise unto His Holy name. Matthew 21:16, “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?”
