The Song Story


There’s a great command in Psalm 150 that says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Some days it can be hard to find a reason to praise God, but we can simply start with this: “I’ve got breath in my lungs today. So that alone is reason enough for me to thank God — reason enough for me to praise Him.”

Our new song “Praise” is just that. It’s one reason after another reason to praise the Lord. We hope you enjoy it!

The Lyrics

Writers: Steven Furtick, Chandler Moore, Brandon Lake, Pat Barrett, Cody Carnes, Chris Brown
CCLI # 7213077

VAMP
Let everything that has breath
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord

VERSE
I’ll praise in the valley
Praise on the mountain
I’ll praise when I’m sure
Praise when I’m doubting
I’ll praise when outnumbered
Praise when surrounded
Cause praise is the waters
My enemies drown in

PRE-CHORUS
As long as I’m breathing
I’ve got a reason to

CHORUS
Praise the Lord
Oh my soul
Praise the Lord
Oh my soul

VERSE
I’ll praise when I feel it
I’ll praise when I don’t
I’ll praise cause I know
You’re still in control
My praise is a weapon
It’s more than a sound
My praise is the shout
That brings Jericho down

BRIDGE
I’ll praise cause You’re sovereign
Praise cause You reign
Praise cause You rose and defeated the grave
I’ll praise cause You’re faithful
Praise cause You’re true
Praise cause there’s nobody greater than You

VAMP
Let everything that has breath
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord

KLOVE First: “Praise” from Elevation Worship

“Praise” will have you clapping your hands from the very start, and as Elevation Worship’s Chris Brown says, “It’s a party.”

“It’s rooted in Psalm 150,” Brown says of the song. “I love the command that we find there that says, ‘Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.’ So, whether I feel like it or whether or not I’m having a hard time finding a reason to praise God, I can make it as simple as this – I just took another breath. I’ve got breath in my lungs today, and that is enough reason for me to give thanks and give praise to God.”

“Praise” will be playing at the top of every hour today, beginning at 6 a.m. CT with the K-LOVE Morning Show.
