In the silence — Jason Upton [I do NOT own this video]

In me…

Tired of telling you, you have me

When I know you really don’t

Tired of telling you, I’ll follow

When I know I really won’t

‘Cause I’d rather stand here speechless

With no great words to say

If my silence is more truthful

And my ears can hear how to walk in your way

In the silence

You are speaking

In the quiet, I can feel the fire

And it’s burning, burning deeply

Burning all is that you desire

To be silent in me.

Oh Jesus, can you hear me?

My soul is screaming out

And my broken will cries

Teach me what Your Kingdom’s all about

Unite my heart to fear You

To fear Your holy Name

And create a life of worship

In the spirit and truth of your loving ways

In the silence

You are speaking

In the quiet, I can feel the fire

And it’s burning, burning deeply

Burning all is that you desire

To be silent in me.

“You Found Me” (Big Daddy Weave)

Another song from Big Daddy Weave! People have been telling me that they like “Every time I breathe” sang by Big Daddy Weave; so I’ve been looking for his songs ;)

“You Found Me” is a very uplifting song, and it contains one beautiful paradox:

“…To be held so tight
I’ve never felt so free…”

…don’t u think? ;)

Anyway…here’s the lyrics:

“You Found Me” (Big Daddy Weave)

I saw three AM come and go again
Another sleepless night, thanks to living my own way
All my great ideas, I’ve regretted most of them
But that was back long before the day


When I saw a flash of light and I heard the sound
Of a voice like thunder shake the ground
It was the first time I remember ever feeling my heartbeat
And the arms that gripped me felt like grace
And I realized in their embrace
To be held so tight
I’ve never felt so free
Also know as the day that you found me


My whole life has changed ever since the day You came
The way I see, the things I want, it’s everything
Some may call it strange, I don’t care what people say
I knew You were the only way

I’ve never known a love like this
You’ve captured my heart and You brought the sweetest
Peace to my life, brought me into the light
Now I’m all Yours, Jesus, draw me into You

I don’t think that I could ever be the same
Who would want to be anyway

“In the Silence” (Jason Upton)

Jason Upton

“In the Silence” is an enthralling song; it is one of those songs that make you stopped when walking, and dropped everything you’re doing just to listen…

Ahhaaa xD It really does!

This song is like a masterpiece. If you haven’t listened to this, you gotta give it a try ;)

Lyrics: “In the Silence”

In me…

Tired of telling you, you have me

When I know you really don’t

Tired of telling you, I’ll follow

When I know I really won’t

‘Cause I’d rather stand here speechless

With no great words to say

If my silence is more truthful

And my ears can hear how to walk in your way

In the silence

You are speaking

In the quiet, I can feel the fire

And it’s burning, burning deeply

Burning all is that you desire

To be silent in me.

Oh Jesus, can you hear me?

My soul is screaming out

And my broken will cries

Teach me what Your Kingdom’s all about

Unite my heart to fear You

To fear Your holy Name

And create a life of worship

In the spirit and truth of your loving ways

In the silence

In the quiet, I can feel the fire

And it’s burning, burning deeply

Burning all is that you desire

To be silent in me.

“In Christ Alone” (Brian Littrell)

Let me introduce you to one of my favorite singers:

«Brian Littrell»

If any of you felt that you’ve seen him before…you got it right! ;)

He’s best known as the member of the famous boy band, Backstreet Boys. He is an American song writer, and also a contemporary Christian recording artist.

“In Christ Alone” is his solo single that went up to #1 on the Christian Charts on July 4, 2005.

So actually, this song has been around for pretty long; if you haven’t heard of it, today is gonna be your first day, then ;)

“In Christ Alone” lyrics

In Christ alone will I glory
Though I could pride myself in battles won
For I’ve been blessed beyond measure
And by His strength alone I’ll overcome
Oh, I could stop and count successes like diamonds in my hands
But those trophies could not equal to the grace by which I stand


In Christ alone

I place my trust
And find my glory in the power of the cross
In every victory
Let it be said of me
My source of strength
My source of hope
Is Christ alone


In Christ alone will I glory

For only by His grace I am redeemed
For only His tender mercy
Could reach beyond my weakness to my need
And now I seek no greater honor in just to know Him more
And to count my gains but losses to the glory of my Lord


In Christ alone

I place my trust
And find my glory in the power of the cross
In every victory
Let it be said of me
My source of strength
My source of hope
Is Christ alone

“He Never Sleeps” [Don Moen]

Have you ever listen to this? This song has been around for pretty long — one of my favorites — loving both the lyrics and song! I find it very comforting and reassuring :) What do you think?

Lyrics:

When you’ve prayed every prayer that you know how to pray.
Just remember the Lord will hear and the answer is on it’s way.

Our God is able.
He is mighty.
He is faithful.

And He never sleeps, He never slumbers.
He never tires of hearing our prayer.
When we are weak He becomes stronger.
So rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him.

Do you feel that the Lord has forgotten your need.
Just remember that God is always working in ways you cannot see.

Our God is able.
He is mighty.
He is faithful.

“East to West” (Casting Crowns)

Lyrics: (http://artists.letssingit.com/casting-crowns-lyrics-east-to-west-xngr6x5)


Here I am Lord and I’m drowning

In your sea of forgetfulness

The chains of yesterday surround me

I yearn for peace and rest

I don’t want to end up where you found me

And it echoes in my mind

Keeps me awake tonight


I know you’ve cast my sins as far

As the East is from the West

And I stand before you now

As though I’ve never sinned but today

I feel like I’m just one mistake away

From you leaving me this way


Jesus can you show me

Just how far the East is from the West

Cause I can’t bear to see the man I’ve been

Come rising up in me again

In the arms of your mercy I find rest

Cause you know just how far the East is from the West

From one scar[r]ed hand to the other


I start the day the war begins

Endless reminding of my sin

Time and time again

Your [T]ruth is drowned out by the storm I’m in

Today I feel like I’m just one mistake away

From you leaving me this way


Jesus can you show me

Just how far the East is from the West

Cause I can’t bear to see the man I’ve been

Come rising up in me again

In the arms of your mercy I find rest

Cause you know just how far the East is from the West

From one scar[r]ed hand to the other


I know you’ve washed me white

Turned my darkness into light

I need your peace to get me through

To get me through this night

I can’t live by what I feel

But by the truth your word reveals

I’m not holding on to you

But your holding on to me

Your holding on to me


Jesus, you know just how far

The East is from the West

I don’t have to see the man I’ve been

Come rising up in me again

In the arms of your mercy I find rest

(The arms of your mercy I find rest)

Cause you know just how far the East is from the West

From one scar[r]ed hand to the other(x2)


(Just how far, the East is from the West) (x3)


From one scarred hand to the other

“I’m Still Yours” (Kutless)

Another song from Kutless!

Here’s the lyrics:

“I’m Still Yours”

If You washed away my vanity
If You took away my words
If all my world was swept away
Would You be enough for me?
Would my beating heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives and takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart will sing to You

When my life is not what I expected
The plans I made have failed
When there’s nothing left to steal me away
Will You be enough for me?
Will my broken heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart
Will sing to You

Even if You take it all away
You’ll never let me go
Take it all away
But I still know

That I’m Yours
I’m still Yours

Oh, I’m Yours
I’m still Yours
I’m still Yours

Kutless – What Faith Can Do

Guys, if you haven’t listened to this, you should! Highly recommended :D It’s a really cool song with powerful message. Give it a try!

Here’s the full lyrics:

“What Faith Can Do” – Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don’t have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That’s what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Easter 2010

Happy Easter! May Jesus bless you all :)

Holy Week 2010

“Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.”
1 Corinthians 13: 4

“I will run to You” by Hillsongs

This song is written by Darlene Zschech, the writer of Shout to the Lord and the lead vocal of many Hillsong’s album songs. If you guys want to find this song, you can find it in God is in the House and Simply Worship album.

I found this song on Youtube and I liked it from the very first time I heard it. The first thing that attracts me is actually the lyrics: people can easily relate to the lyrics, and the lyrics is simple and meaningful –  it is a beautiful song :)

So here’s the full lyrics:

“I Will Run to You” by Hillsongs

Your eye is on the sparrow
And Your hand, it comforts me
From the ends of the Earth to the depth of my heart
Let Your mercy and strength be seen

You call me to Your purpose
As angels understand
For Your glory, may You draw all men
As Your love and grace demand

And I will run to You
To Your words of truth
Not by might, not by power
But by the spirit of God
Yes I will run the race
‘Till I see Your face
Oh let me live in the glory of Your grace

This video has been around pretty long – but in case you haven’t watched it….go watch it! ^^

(I do NOT own this video):

None but Jesus

REVIEW:

Although this song has a soft melody; the word itself contains such firm resolve: “there is no one else for me
none but Jesus”.

Some lines from the lyrics: “I know that You are God” and “in the secret of Your presence/I know there I am restored” depicts the right heart of a real believer that has a complete trust in God – having faith without doubts.

Beautiful lyrics, don’t you think? :)

So here is the complete lyrics:

None but Jesus – Hillsong United (more…)

At the Cross: “…I know you love me.”

This is another all-time favorite song!

It is sang by Hillsong.

The way I feel this, it gives a sense of being loved and protected: an inseparable and  intimate relationship with Jesus.

It reveals His might in overcoming the grave; as well as His unconditional love for all the people.

It sure gives a sense of security: being protected and loved by God :)

At the Cross – Hillsong (more…)

Who Am I

This is my all-time favourite!

I love all the words and the song itself.

The way I feel it, it gives a sense of belonging and security – a sense of being loved.

Check it out! :)
