Everything Is Sound by Jason Mraz

 

“Everything Is Sound” (lyrics)

When there is love, I can’t wait to talk about it
When things get rough, I like to walk with you
Or when it’s night, I like to be the light that’s missing
And remind you every minute of the future isn’t written, not yet
When there is love, or when the heart feels heavy
We can lighten it up, if you’ve had enough
Well you can empty your glass and we can fill it back up
You know it’s up to us to make it all up
So what you making up? I can make it up back
You could be loved no matter what
And know the only time is right now, it’s right where… where you are
You don’t need a vacation when there’s nothing to escape fromSinging

La la la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound

Let’s sing to be happy, to feel things, to communicate, and be heard
Or sing out to protest, and to project, and to harmonize with birds
Whether it’s your birthday or your dying day
It’s a celebration too
Rejoice to use your voice and give wings to any of choice
Whatever you’re choosing right now, it’s right where… where you are
You don’t need a vacation when there’s nothing to escape from

Set your vibration and undulation to the highest it can go
And trust me, hear me
If it makes you wanna sing
Just sing it

La la la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound
La la la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah

It’s a song that I’ve forgotten often
It doesn’t make me wrong
Cause we all need the darkness, to see the light
In our own eyes, come on, and sing it

La la la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound
La la la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah
We’re connected now
La la la la
Let’s all sing
Hallelujah
Everything is sound
La la la
Let’s all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah
We’re connected now

Halina by Malay

 

“Halina” (lyrics)

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Ilang daang buwan na ba ang pinalipas mo?
Naghahanda ba o tuluyan ka nang sumusuko
Papayag ba na malimutan na ang alab ng puso
Akala mo may bukas pa
Oras ay tumatakbo, Papalayo sa iyo

Saglit lang ang buhay
Saglit lang

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Heto na, wala nang ibang panahon
Ang pagkakataon ay laging nasa ngayon
Limutin mo na ang lahat
Nandito na ang sa iyo

Minsan lang ang buhay
Minsan lang

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ang mga luha natin ay nagniningning mga bituin

Tell the World of His Love by Darren Espanto (Youth Encounter at UST)

“Tell the World of His Love” (lyrics)

For God so loved the world
He gave us His only Son
Jesus Christ our Savior
His most precious one
He has sent us His message of love
And sends those who hear
To bring the message to everyone
In a voice loud and clear

Let us tell the world of His love
The greatest love the world has known
Search the world for those who have walked
Astray and lead them home
Fill the world’s darkest corners
With His light from up above
Walk every step, Every mile, Every road
And tell the world, Tell the world of His love

(Tell the world of His love)
(Tell the world of His love)

Our Lord our savior our king
Emmanuelle prince of peace
Begotten of the Father’s love
Born to set us free
Let heaven and earth sing His praises
His righteousness proclaim
Let every heart rejoice in His love
And magnify His name

Let us tell the world of His love
The greatest love the world has known
Search the world for those who have walked
Astray and lead them home
Fill the world’s darkest corners
With His light from up above
Walk every step, Every mile, Every road
And tell the world, Tell the world of His love

(Tell the world of His love)

Let us tell the world of His love
The greatest love the world has known
Search the world for those who have walked
Astray and lead them home
Fill the world’s darkest corners
With His light from up above
Walk every step, Every mile, Every road
And tell the world, Tell the world of His love

(Tell the world of His love)
Tell the world of His love

Miracles by Coldplay

“Miracles” (lyrics)

From up above I heard
The angels sing to me these words.
And sometimes in your eyes
I see the beauty in the world.

Oh, now I’m floating so high.
I blossom and die.
Send your storm and your lightning to strike
Me between the eyes (eyes)

Sometimes the stars decide
To reflect in puddles in the dirt.
When I look in your eyes
I forget all about what hurts.

Oh, now I’m floating so high.
I blossom and die.
Send your storm and your lightning to strike
Me between the eyes
And cry.

Believe in miracles.

Oh hey, I’m floating above the world now!
Oh hey, I’m floating above the world now!

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah!

Nothing Is Wasted by Elevation Worship

 

“Nothing Is Wasted” (lyrics)

You know my every need
You see my poverty
You are enough for me, Jesus
You gave the blind man sight
You raised the dead to life
You’ve done the same for me, Jesus

You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing in my life You cannot revive
You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing too hard for our God

Your word inside of me
My strength, my everything
My hope will always be Jesus
Your breath inside my lungs
You’re worthy of my trust
You will forever be Jesus

You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing in my life You cannot revive
You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing too hard for our God

Nothing is wasted
You work all things for good
Nothing is wasted
Your promise remains
Forever You reign
(Repeat 2x)

Your promise remains
Forever You reign

You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing in my life You cannot revive
You are loving, You are wise
There is nothing too hard for our God

Nothing is wasted
You work all things for good
Nothing is wasted
Your promise remains
Forever You reign

Your promise remains
Forever You reign
Your promise remains
Forever You reign

The Fault is Not in Our Stars

The Fault is Not in Our Stars

Even before watching “The Fault in Our Stars” I already knew what’s gonna happen. Yes, John Green is a predictable writer and it’s a teenage love story that’s often compared to “A Walk to Remember” but these things didn’t prevent me from seeing the actual motion picture.

For me, The Fault in Our Stars is all about ‘Hope’. I have this thing with sick character story lines well maybe because my dad had lung cancer and so I always become motivated after encountering these type of characters. Anyways, what I like about this movie are the bits of inspiration you get when you least expect it. And by the way, I didn’t cry after seeing the film but it made me ponder on some important things in my life. Now, let me share them to you:

1. I strongly believe that everyday God is doing a new thing for all of us. (Isaiah 43:19) And if that’s the case, then you need to look forward in living your life every single day. To do that, you always need to HOPE. It will never be easy to face the difficulties on earth but you just got to have hope because it can propel you towards positivity and it’s the only thing that is stronger than fear. Hoping in the Lord teaches us to trust His plans and get on the crazy roller coaster that only goes up.

2. “That’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.”

Nobody wants to be in pain but in this lifetime, we will experience a lot of good and bad stuff and we all know that it takes courage to face an ugly truth or to overcome a heartbreaking situation. You don’t want to feel the pain but by doing so you are actually giving yourself an opportunity to experience the feeling of what it is to live. It is okay to feel vulnerable and weak sometimes. The important thing is how you deal with the pain. Remember that whatever situation you are in, God is by your side. He will never leave you on your own. He is the courage within you. Yes, He is. Seek His help whenever you need Him, because He is just there. Pain will always lead you closer to Christ.

3. Love is why we are here. It’s a big world out there and billions of people need you. Better stop thinking of your own welfare so much and give yourself away to serve and love other people. Hey, not everyone was as blessed with so much as you. So why not spend a little time worrying and helping others to live their lives in full. You are here on earth because of Love and only because of Love. We are created to love other people that is why we need to get involved. And I tell you now, nothing can compare to the awesome feeling of serving your brothers and sisters. Loving them even if it hurts sometimes gives meaning to our so called life. Do not be afraid to love because it is our purpose. God designed us to be this way. The cool thing about Him is that He knows what He is doing. You got to love Him for being magnificent. Oh, yes He is.

4. “You gave me a forever within a numbered days.”

Go see the world with your eyes wide open. Learn to appreciate life more. Be perfectly aware of the days you’ve spent with the people you love. Express your deep love for your family, friends and for the rest of the population in this world. Fall in love with moments, that is the key. We will never know when our time is up and we can only do so much with this one life given to us. Live the best life today. Take out the regrets and surrender that unforgiving heart. Fill your vessel of hope with the love of God. Let it overflow and reach others. Be conscious of how you live your life today because one moment you are alive and the next thing you know you are already a legacy. Every single moment counts and people will remember you for what you are today.

5. Every heart has a story to tell. Even you have a story to tell, right? Well you need to share it. Tell everyone how chaotic and exciting your life is. It doesn’t matter how bad you’ve gone through, the important thing are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. Be a living testimony of how great God is in your life and how He gave you one good reason to live.

Sometimes we’re unsatisfied with our lives. Well, do not blame it on God or on other people because the truth is the fault is not in our stars, it’s how you see, live and breathe your life. It is a journey and everyday you should be able to embrace the exciting adventure you are in. Learn to take risks and be amazed on its ups and downs. If you don’t live your life now, then when? If you don’t love much today, well tomorrow is full of uncertainties. You only got one life to love so better make the most of it, right? It’s a beautiful life and there are countless reasons to be happy. Henri Nouwen said that, “We have to choose joy and keep choosing it.” We can only find and experience true joy by choosing God everyday. You cannot just depend on what’s written in the stars, better ask and be in a relationship with the one who made them. He’s got a lot to say to you and me, that’s why we tend to gravitate towards the sky.

Well, it’s really up to us. Are we going to gaze forever in this vast universe? Or are we going to accept who we really are and reflect God’s light so other people can also find hope. So the next time you go out during the night, just don’t forget to twinkle. Okay? Okay.

For many people need to witness His goodness in you.
