Artist: Hillsong Worship
Words and Music: Brooke Fraser, Marty Sampson
Album: No Other Name
Tempo: 79 beats per minute
Details: Some people felt that God is not existing anymore. As He is deaf and He is not able to listen to our prayer. Actually is it not the God doesn’t listen but us. We like to talk and talk and we don’t have time in listening to His gentle voice.
Yes He speaks to us in the depth of our heart just like this song tells. From that depth we can listen to his voice and know what He wants for us and not what we want for him to do on our life. He know better than us and He will do better than we can ever imagine. Continue reading Depths (Hillsong)
Artist: Hillsong Young & Free
Words and Music:Karina Wykes & Ben Tan
Tempo: 125 beats per minute
Details: Please take a minute of listening on the chorus part to understand that timing. I want to say that the “I” lyrics there needs to play a complete chord bar written. Actually that’s the only confusing or critical part in this song. Overall Days Gone By is easy to play not to mention the chord progress of from E major.
Just like the Heart of God, this song tells about encouragement of not giving up because everything will pass away including the pain and our failures but not God and his Words for us. Continue reading Days Gone By (Hillsong)
Artist: Silent Sanctuary ft. Aya De Leon
Words and Music: Silent Sanctuary
Tempo: 115 beats per minute
Details: Kung si Moira ang hugot queen ng pinas, SS naman ang hugot king. Alam mo ung boses palang ng Sarkie nakaka iyak na. Kaya kahit mejo dapat masayang kanta to kasi pang wedding ang tema, parang drama parin. Siguro dahil may pagkakahawig ito ng Hiling o Sa Iyo.
Noong kinapa ko to, kakarelease lang nito. Hindi ko nga alam kung saan album nila ito isasama.
Kung pag uusapan naman ang colab nito kay Aya para sa akin mas OK kung hindi sya. Medyo aggressive kasi boses nya o dahil nakilala kasi sya taralets na groovy ang dating. Para sa akin maganda to kung si Moira ang na kasama ng SS. Anyway just to give a credit to Aya, original nya ung Sundo na ki-nover ni Moira na nag bigay ng hype sa kanya bago pa man ang Tagpuan o Malaya.
Tungkol naman sa kanta, madali lang tugtugin ito dahil nasa D tapos paulit-ulit lang din ang chords. Wala ring pag babago sa tempo kaya madaling sabayan. Iyon nga lang kung gaano ito kadaling tugtugin, ganun sya kahirap kantahin lalu na pag nag one step higher. Siguro mataas lang by nature range ni Sarkie pero para sa akin hirap talaga kantahin mga tugtugan ng Silent Sanctuary hindi lang itong Dambana. Continue reading Dambana (Silent Sanctuary)
Artist: Cory Asbury
Words and Music: Cory Asbury
Album: Reckless Love
Tempo: 79 beats per minute
Details: I remember one of elders in a local renewal movement I attended saying that we should celebrate more in Jesus’ resurrection than Christmas day contrary on our custom. It is because the resurrection day is a proof that everything in Jesus teachings are true and will come true.
Death is inevitable and admit it we are fear of it. Even most people who wants to go to heaven afraid of death. Jesus understand our fear of it so He shown the way and prove how this fearful thing can do nothing against him.
Corinthians 15:55-57, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
In this verse, death also signifies sin and sin has no power over God through Jesus Christ.
About the song, one of my favorite from Cory Asbury. It has a powerful chorus that is easy to remember both melody and lyrics. Continue reading Death Where Is Your Sting (Cory Asbury)
