Mukhang wala pang thread na ganito. Well, do you have any favourite songs in your church? I have quite a lot. Fr. Manoling Francisco, SJ, made a lot of songs that simply inspire. One of them is "The Prayer of Rupert Mayer":

Lord, what You will, let it be so
Where You will, there we will go
What is Your will, help us to know

Lord, when You will, the time is right
In You there's joy in strife
For Your will I'll give my life!

To ease Your burden brings no pain
To forego all for You is gain
As long as I in You remain

Because You will it, it is best
Because You will it, we are blessed
Til in Your hands our hearts find rest
Our hearts find rest
Til in Your hands our hearts find rest

Nice thread, man. Here's my contribution. :)

You Are Near
Music and Lyrics by Dan Schutte S.J.

Yahweh I know You are near
Standing always by my side
You guard me from the foe
And you lead me in ways everlasting

Lord you have searched my heart
And You know when I sit and when I stand
Your hand is upon me
Protecting me from death
Keeping me from harm

Where can I run from Your love
It I climb to the heavens You are there
If I fly to the sunrise
Or sail beyond the sea
You would still be there

You know my heart and its ways
You who formed me before I was born
In the secret of darkness
Before I saw the sun
In my motherís womb

Marvelous to me are Your works
How profound are Your thoughts my Lord
Even if I could count them
They number as the stars
You would still be there

i second the motion warhammer's note... a nice thread! :)

the first post i am sharing is something close to my heart.
this came as a message to me from someone i truly love.
now he's our special angel in heaven.

=====================================


I WILL BE HERE


Tomorrow mornin' if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I...I will be here.

If in the dark we lose sight of love
Hold my hand and have no fear
'Cause I...I will be here.

I will be here
When you feel like bein' quiet
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen

And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin'
Through the winnin' and losin' and tryin'
We'll be together
'Cause I will be here

Tomorrow mornin' if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I...I'll be here

Just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
I...I will be here

I will be here
You can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we're older
I will hold you

And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here

I will be true
To the promise I have made
To you and to the
One who gave you to me

I...I will be here

And just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
'Cause I...
I will be here....
We'll be together, forever

'Cause I will be here
I will be here.

WARRIOR IS A CHILD
Gary Valenciano


Lately Iíve been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that Iím amazing
Iím strong beyond my years
But they donít see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

[CHORUS]
They donít know
That I come running home when I fall down
They donít know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
Cuz deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because his armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that Iím amazing
I never face retreat
But they donít see the enemies
That lay me at his feet

[CHORUS]
They donít know
That I come running home when I fall down
They donít know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
Cuz deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

They donít know
That I come running home when I fall down
They donít know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
Cuz deep inside this armor (deep inside)
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

LEAD ME LORD
Gary Valenciano

Lead me Lord
Lead me by the hand and help me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain that life may bring
Thereís no other hope that I can lean on
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life

Walk by me
Walk by me across the lonely roads that I may face
Take my arms and let your hand show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
All my days, all my life

You are my light
Youíre the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord I need You there
You are my light
I cannot live alone
Let me stay by Your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord

Lead me Lord
Even though at times Iíd rather go alone my way
Hear me take the right direction
Take your road
Lead me Lord and never leave my sight
All my days, all my life

You are my light
Youíre the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord I need You there
You are my light
I cannot live alone
Let me stay by Your guiding love
All through my life
All through my days
Lead me Lord

WE ARE THE REASON
Gary Valenciano

As little children
We would dream of Christmas morn
Of all the gifts and toys
We knew we'd find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

We were the reason
That He gave His life
We were the reason
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

As the years went by
We learned more about gifts
The giving of ourselves
And what that means
On a dark and cloudy day
A man hung crying in the rain
All because of love, all because of love

I've finally found the reason for living
It's in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do every word that I say
I'll be giving my all just for Him, for Him

He is my reason to live

don moen is one christian artist that never fails to touch my spirituality.
hope the song lyrics here can inspire some of you....

GOD WILL MAKE A WAY
Don Moen

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way

By a roadway in the wilderness
He'll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today

SHOUT TO THE LORD
Don Moen

Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing
Power and majesty praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your Name
I'll sing for joy at the work of Your hands
Forever I'll love You
Forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

My Jesus my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love
My comfort my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath all that I am
Never cease to worship You

here's one of my personal anthem when it comes to life's ups and downs.
never fails to make me see and go beyond the present situation.


HEALING
deniece williams


Now that we have gotten through
One more fall
I can just admit I've got it all
Cause I do
Cause I've got you
We've crossed these battle lines to many times
It passes throught the heart
But it never leaves a mark

Cause Your love just keeps on healing me
No matter how I bruise
If I just trust You
Your love just keeps on healing me
One more clue
One more chance that wasnt there before
In your arms
no pain can harm the way im feeling
Lord I know that Your love is healing

I've kicked around those lines in my head
But I've never listened to the words that You said
See where its lead
Well I know I have it now
Cause You showed me how
And all I had to do
Was just to keep my eyes on You

Cause Your love just keeps on healing me
No matter how I bruise
If I just trust You
Your love just keeps on healing me
One more clue
One more chance that wasnt there before
In your arms
no pain can harm the way im feeling
Lord I know that Your love is healing

(break)

Cause Your love just keeps on healing me
No matter how I bruise
If I just trust You
Your love just keeps on healing me
One more clue
One more chance that wasnt there before
In your arms
no pain can harm the way im feeling

Lord I know that Your love is healing

Thanks for the compliments! I hope more would share their songs here. Another favourite of mine is "In Him Alone", also by Fr. Francisco:

Refrain:
In Him alone is our hope
In Him alone is our strength
In Him alone are we justified
In Him alone are we saved

What have we to offer
That does not fade or wither?
Can the world ever satisfy the emptiness in our hearts
In vain we deny
(Refrain)

When will you cease running
In search of hollow meaning
Let His love fill the hunger in your soul
Til it overflows with joy you yearn to know
(refrain with descant)

Descant:
In Him alone is our hope
Unto Him I pour out my heart
He alone will save me with His love and mercy

WARRIOR IS A CHILD
Gary Valenciano

That song is so painfully familiar... :cry:

===========================

I Love You Lord
Nitropraise

I love you Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship you
All my soul rejoice
Take joy my King
In what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound
In your ear

Open our eyes Lord
We want to see Jesus
Open our eyes Lord
We want to see Jesus

I love you Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship you
All my soul rejoice
Take joy my King
In what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound
In your ear


I think it's high time I heard mass again... :(

A lot of people find inspiration in that song, especially those who always need to be strong for everyone else. :)

I'll go look for some more songs to post here. I really like this thread. :)

Here's one of my favorites... I forgot who wrote it though... This song always sends shivers to my body and lifts my spirits up every time I hear it. Truly inspiring. :)


LEAD ME LORD

Lead me Lord
Lead me by the hand and help me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain that life may bring
There's no other hope that I can lean on
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life

Walk by me
Walk by me across the lonely roads that I may face
Take my arms and let your hand show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
All my days, all my life

You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord I need You there
You are my light
I cannot live alone
Let me stay by Your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord

Lead me Lord
Even though at times I'd rather go alone my way
Hear me take the right direction
Take your road
Lead me Lord and never leave my sight
All my days, all my life

You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord I need You there
You are my light
I cannot live alone
Let me stay by Your guiding love
All through my life
All through my days
Lead me Lord

Here's another song, I think it's by Don Moen: "I Just Want To Be Where You Are":

I just want to be where You are
Dwelling daily in Your Presence
I don't want to worship from afar
Draw me near to where You are

I just want to be where You are
Dwelling daily in Your Presence
Take me to the place where You are
I just want to be with You

I want to be where You are
Dwelling in Your Presence
Feasting at Your table
And surrounded by Your glory

In Your Presence
That's where I always want to be
I just want to be
I just want to be with You

I just want to be where You are
Dwelling daily in Your Presence
Take me to the place where You are
I just want to be with You

Oh my God, You are my strength
And my song
And when I'm in Your Presence
Though I'm weak You're always strong

I just want to be where You are
Dwelling daily in Your Presence
Take me to the place where You are
I just want to be with You

Hhmm...well, that's how I remember the song. Will have to listen to it again.
