photo taken on a morning hike in Southern California on the Summer Solstice

You have to travel some distance and hike to greater heights if you want to see the sunrise on the coast of Southern California. However, it is worth the effort to be able to rise above the dark clouds and fog to see the beauty of a new day dawning.  

Below are some of the lyrics to this song by Matt Redman called Ten Thousand Reasons:

Bless the Lord, O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

You're rich in love, and You're slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Sing like never before O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
I'll worship Your holy name
