Easter Sunday Night Meditation: It is Well [Song]

Uploaded by DecemberSnow1231 

IT IS WELL
Composed by Horatio G. Spafford (1873)
Performed by Sounds Like Reign

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

It is well [it is well]
With my soul [with my soul]
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, oh, my soul.

It is well [it is well]
With my soul [with my soul]
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Oh Lord, haste the day when my 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.

It is well [it is well]
With my soul [with my soul]
It is well, it is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul.

CHRIST HAS NO BODY NOW BUT YOURS
Featuring Josh Garrels

Christ has no body now but yours
No hands, no feet on earth but yours
Yours are the eyes with which He sees
Yours are the feet with which He walks
Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world
Yours are the hands.

Yours are the feet with which He walks
Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world
Yours are the hands.

Glorious Saturday Night Meditation: Silence [Song]

Uploaded by MaeCeleste


SILENCE

By Lizz Wright

Have you heard the silent night
The earth is always singing
Praises of the morning sun
Even before morning.
And the whole world is singing of
It’s beauty all day long
And even the quiet dark
That silence is a song.

Weep not for the day of gray
For the heavens are not weeping
The roses are still red and gay
They are even blooming
And the whole world is singing of
It’s beauty all day long
And even the quiet dark
That silence is a song
That silence is a song.

Glorious Saturday Meditation: Creation Song [Song]


CREATION SONG
By Josh Garrels

We can hear creation groan
It's crying out for God
Every night when stars come out, I hear creation's song
And it sings, "Oh, Lord!"
And we sing, "Oh, Lord!"
"You are light and You are love.
You are flesh and You are blood
."

Peace will come to those who love
Peace will come to those who love
Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah.

We can hear creation groan
It's crying out for God
Every night when stars come out, I hear creation's song
And it sings, "Oh, Lord!"
And we sing, "Oh, Lord!"
"You are light and You are love.
You are flesh and You are blood
."

Peace will come to those who love
Peace will come to those who love
Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah,
Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah.

Sunshine Forever [Song]


Uploaded by gmercado

SUNSHINE FOREVER
Performed by Marilyn Williams
Composed by Gregory Ballantyne (1991)
Album: About Time

Come. Come and enjoy my island twin
Where the sun shines from deep within
Sunshine. Come, come, come.
And let my warm Caribbean world
Welcome your heart, embrace your soul.

Sunshine, sunshine.
My sun will shine forever,
My spirit is the sun
A million lights together
Which make my people one.
Sunshine.
Come and cast your shadow in my sun.

Come see pink and yellow poui bloom
Canes fires paint a mask of gloom
Sunshine.
Come, come, come.
See Buccoo's beauties angel sweet
Tickle the ocean's nylon feet.

Sunshine, sunshine.
My sun will shine forever
My spirit is the sun
A million lights together
Which make my people one
Sunshine.
Come and cast your shadow in my sun.

Come and let my drums, my chandeliers
Sparkle with soul they pioneered
Sunshine.
Come, come, come
Calypso jewel in my crown
Will turn your blues into a song.

Sunshine.
My sun will shine forever and ever
My spirit is the shining sun
A million lights together
Which make my people one and only one.

Sunshine.
Come and cast your shadow in my sun
Come and cast your shadow in my sun
Come and cast your shadow in my sun
Come and cast your shadow in my sun.

World Care [Song]


Uploaded by CovahMuzak

WORLD CARE
Performed by Marilyn Williams
Composed by Gregory Ballantyne(1991)
Album: About Time

Mother Earth shedding tears
She's afloat in her cares
To her stewards and custodians, I say
For her survival we don't plan
We slash and we burn, destruction we condone
But all lifeforms have a link
We more integrated than we think
And we lose when a species extinct.

So make that move to conservation
It's no more than Mother Earth expects
It's time we take up a position
That we are guilty of neglect
Because the world around is our baby
To care and nurture her we must
Let's join that universal army
World care is up to all of us.

Acid chokes her to death
There is smoke on her breath
Delicate food chains in her belly
Broken down by lead and mercury
Her lungs are inflamed,
That's the forest by name
CFCs make her see red
There's a hole in the sky by her head
Disaster will drop through and spread - that dread.

So make that move to conservation
It's no more than Mother Earth expects
It's time we take up a position
That we are guility of neglect
Because the world around is our baby
To care and nurture her we must
Let's join that universal decree
World care is up to all of us.

As a country so small,
We ent doing well at all
Now we Scarlet Ibis hardly
Want to breed in we Caroni
All dem corals we tief that destroy Buccoo Reef
And leatherbacks that we kill
And clogging our waterways still
Pelting rubbish out we cars at will.

So make that move to conservation
It's no more than Mother Earth expects
It's time we take up a position
That we are guility of neglect
Because the world around you is your baby
To care and nurture her you must
Let's join that universal army
World care is up to all of us.

Perception has to change,
No nation's out of range
Of the fast ozone depletion
And the global implications
'Cause the greenhouse effect won't bypass or select
To cool it is up to we
It's our collective duty - requiem or recovery.

So make that move to conservation
It's no more than Mother Earth expects
It's time we take up a position
That we are guilty of neglect
Yes, the world around us is our baby
To care and nurture her we must
Let's join that universal decree
World care is up to all of us, all of us, all of us.

This is our world and she's crying.
We slash and we burn, she's dying.
It's your world and it's my world.
