Music Monday: Que Tu Corazón vuelva a latir

Last year I shared a song sung by Danny Gokey, Tell your heart to beat again, as well as its background story. This morning YouTube let me know that a Spanish version of the song has been recorded:

Destrozado como nunca antes
Y tu vida está rota en mil pedazos, que dolor
Y las palabras no importan ya
Cuando este mundo te trata mal
Y piensas que nunca serás
El mismo de antes otra ves

Dile a tu corazón que hoy vuelva a latir
Y la oscuridad se irá, con su gracia y su verdad
El ayer quedo atrás, ya no vives ahí más
Deja atrás todo el dolor y hoy vuelve a vivir

Comienza desde el principio otra vez
Todo está bien, la sanidad del amor llego
Levántate a caminar y que el sol brille sobre ti
Porque tú historia no ha acabado
Un viaje nuevo va a empezar

Que toda herida y desamor
Sean una memoria viva
De aquel que te ayudo
Pues el amor todo lo ve
Y el cielo está obrando todo para ti bien

Music Monday: O Little While

A couple of weeks ago I attended a concert performed by Joe Zambon. I’ve been driving around listening to his new CD ever since. I’m sure I’ll be posting some more of his songs over the coming weeks, but here’s one with my favourite video, “O Little While”:

This song was inspired by the words of St. Bernard of Clairvaux:

“O little while, little while! How long a little while! Dear Lord, you say it is for a little while that we do not see you. The word of my Lord may not be doubted, but it is a long while, far too long. Yet both are true; it is a little while compared to what we deserve, but a long while to what we desire. You have each meaning expressed by the prophet Habakuk: ‘If he delays, wait for him, for he will come, and will not delay’ (Hab. 2:3) How is it that he will not delay if he does delay, unless it is that he comes sooner than we deserve but not as soon as we desire?”

Music Monday: This is my story

Last week I posted a song by Sarah Kroger. Today’s song is another one by the same artist, “This is my story”:

There’s a song that You sing in the morning light
O wondrous love, O wondrous love
There’s a song that You sing in my longest night

O wondrous love x 2

High on the mountain, tossed to the seas
I am remembered, You are for me
Your voice is freedom, Your word is peace
I am remembered, You are for me

This is my story, this is my song x 2

Every wound is a kiss, every thorn a grace
O wondrous love, O wondrous love
Every beat of my heart is Your highest praise
O wondrous love, O wondrous love

On wings of eagles, in valleys deep
I am remembered, You are for me
Your voice is freedom, Your word is peace
I am remembered, You are for me

This is my story, this is my song x 4

Jesus, You are my song x 6

You are my story, You are my song x 2

Music Monday: I choose you

I’ve been meaning to post something by Sarah Kroger for a while now, so since yesterday was my sister’s wedding anniversary, I thought it was appropriate to post her rather adorable song, “I choose you”…

From the first it was a storm but we stood and braved the heavy skies, you and I
And we waited out the clouds, sought the sun until it met our eyes, you and I
We had a choice and so we made it
The vow is love, let nothing break it

Oh when love is a dream
And it’s all as it should be I will choose you
And when love is a storm
Through the fire or the flood
Still I choose you, I choose you…

So if stones and arrows fly love will be the shield that gets us by, you and I
For our dwelling will be light and our daily bread, He will provide for you and I
We lay our hearts upon the cornerstone
And hand in hand we walk till we get home

I will choose to love
I will choose to serve you
I will choose to follow when I do not know the way
I will choose your heart
I will choose to open mine
I will let you choose to love me every day

Music Monday: You Love Me Anyway

Today’s song is from Sidewalk Prophets, “You love me anyway”:

The question was raised as my conscience fell, a silly little lie.
It didn’t mean much but it lingers still in the corners of my mind

Still you call me to walk on the edge of this world to spread my dreams and fly
But the future’s so far, my heart is so frail, I think I’d rather stay inside

But You love me anyway, it’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known
Yes You love me anyway, oh Lord, how You love me, how you love me

It took more than my strength to simply be still, to seek but never find
The reasons we change, the reasons I doubt and why do loved ones have to die?

I am the thorn in your crown, but You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow, but You love me anyway
I am the nail in Your wrist, but You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss, but You love me anyway

See now I am the man who yelled out from the crowd
For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
Yes and I turned away with a smile on my face
With this sin in my heart, tried to bury Your grace
And then alone in the night I still call out for You
So ashamed of my life, my life, my life

Music Monday: It is well with my soul

Let’s kick off the week with a little bit of acapella…

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Shouting Grounds

Okay, it’s time to return to regular blogging. To kick things off, let’s begin with some heart-thumping music from Crowder’s “Shouting Grounds”:

Take me to the shouting grounds
A prodigal lost was found
I should be dead right now
But I am alive

I just want to see your face
You’re calling me from my grave
Take me to the shouting grounds
It’s gonna get loud

Dead man come walkin’ out
When you hear the sound of mercy
Dead man come shouting out
Get out the ground you’re breathing
All who were once asleep are waking up to sing

No grave gonna hold me down
Can you hear the sound of saving?
No grave gonna hold me down
Can you feel the ground it’s shaking?
All who were once asleep are waking up to sing
