Hope of the Dawn (WYD Rio2013 Official Hymn)

“Hope of the Dawn” (lyrics)

Under the shadow, marked forever
With the sign of The Redeemer
On the hilltop, Corcovado
The whole world is filled with His love.

(Chorus)

Christ invites us:
Come to me, be my friends
Christ, He sends us
โ€œBe missionaries!โ€

Can you see it, it is springtime
We have the hope of a dawn
Can you hear Him, He is calling
Receive His gift of faith

Can you imagine, if every nation
Every tribe and tongue, this generation
Saying no to war, no to hatred
Love, peace and goodness reigns.

From the East to the West
Our house is open, has no door
our land has no fences,
There are no limits to our love

We are scattered through the world
But we all keep the very same zeal
Itโ€™s your grace that sustains us
And keeps us faithful to you

We hear you, as you say
“Go make disciples, of all nations,
A new people, in unity
Bring their hearts to meโ€
Proclaiming your gospel
Lives are changed, weโ€™re not the same
A new creation, the old has gone
We know a new world will come.

Esta es la juventud del Papa!

Esta es la juventud del Papa!

World Youth Day is a great blessing to young people in every generation. It recaptures that sense of friendship and community. Sharing the faith, love and hope to brothers and sisters in Christ all over the World.

We are the Church! And I am part of this New Evangelization.

Esta es la juventud del Papa!

Lord, I Need You by Matt Maher

“Lord, I Need You” (lyrics)

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You’re my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Awestruck

Awestruck

You’ll never know where the Lord will take you, it really is an exciting life in Christ. There are just too many beautiful surprises when you follow His will. It is good to dream, but let us always do it with God. ๐Ÿ™‚

Behind me is the “Christ the Redeemer” statue in Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro. What a beautiful sight which leaves me in awe and affirmed me of God’s great love for me.

THANK YOU LORD FOR LOVING ME THIS MUCH! RIO DE JANEIRO ROCKS!!!
