"Great is Thy faithfulness”
"Great is Thy faithfulness," O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
"Great is Thy faithfulness!" "Great is Thy faithfulness!" Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— "Great is Thy faithfulness," Lord, unto me!

"You Raise Me Up"
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.
El Shaddai
El Shaddai, el shaddai
El-elyon na adonia
Age to age you're still the same
By the power of the name
El shaddai, el shaddai
Erkamka na adonai
I will praise and lift you high
El shaddai

Our God(our God) is an awesome God
He reigns(He reigns) from heaven above
With wisdom(with wisdom) pow'r and love our God is an awesome God

And when the sky was starless in the void of the night
(our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness and created the light
(our God is an awesome God)
Judgment and wrath he poured out on Sodom
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that our God is an awesome God

Refrain x3

Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
(Our God is an awesome God)
(Our God is an awesome God)
Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we’ve projected
A child in a manger
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliness hero, wrapped in his mothers shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?
Cause how many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Laura Story » Mighty to Save Lyrics
Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
A kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
Zschech Darlene: Shout To The Lord Lyrics
My jesus, my savior,
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.

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 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.

You Are Highly Lifted Up You are highly lifted up
There Is no one like You
Halle- halle- halle – halleluiah
Thank you, thank you lord
Thank you lord for everything
You have done
Who is like unto thee?
Oh oh! Lord
Who is like unto thee?
Oh oh! Lord
Among the gods,
Who is like thee?
Glorious and holiness
Joyful and praises
Always doing wonders
Worthy, you are worthy!
King of kings,
Lord of lords
You are worthy!
Thou art worthy, Thou art worthy
Thou art worthy, O Lord
To receive glory, glory and honour
Glory and honor and power
For Thou hast created, hast all things created
Thou hast created all things
And for Thy pleasure they are created
Thou art worthy, O Lord

There is no one like you, Jehovah!
There is no one like you
Cause you’re beautiful, excellent
There is no one like you
O COME All YE Faithful
O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant,
O Come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, Born the King of angels;

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! The strife is o'er, the battle done; the victory of life is won; the song of triumph has begun: Alleluia! The powers of death have done their worst, but Christ their legions hath dispersed; let shouts of holy joy outburst: Alleluia!
Holy Ghost, do it again
Do it again in my life
Open my eyes to see JESUS, sited upon the throne

Essay on Vallye Song

...“ Oh yes. You’re strong. I think you’ve got what it takes…”(p.84). Veronica Yonker, a seventeen-year old girl, who dreams big in the post-apartheids era, may have just been the breakthrough for many young strong women of South Africa. These words, coming from a white man( the AUTHOR), was the last boost she needed to go get and live her biggest dream in Johannesburg, as a black girl coming from the Valley. Veronica was born and grew up in the Valley, in the shadows of her mother and grandfather, but in the light of her loving grandfather. Being the sweet, innocent, obedient and respectful child, as she was, pleasing her grandfather and growing up, in the same way her mother did, she was not stuck in her past. She had her own dreams- and dreaming big, she did- and plans for her own future. And reaching these dreams was her passion. Especially her dream of becoming a famous singer. Veronica, not being stuck in her past, strengthens her believes in reaching her dream. She wants to do things differently than in the past “… and all that talk that was going on about how things was going to change and be different from now on.”(p. ). And by this means, not ending up spending her future days, cleaning and scrubbing floors in a white man’s house “…you will never see me on my knees scrubbing a white man’s floor”(p.68). This, however, was the planned future for most of the young black women in that time, especially those living on a farm. But Veronica Yonker had this dream and......

This I Believe

...Raymond Correa This I Believe Essay I believe in the power of music. Ever since I was young, music always seemed to calm me down or simply make me feel better. Music is like a medicine to me, and my parents would laugh at how much I enjoyed music. Whenever a song would come on, my parents would sit and watch me, while giggling to each other, as i stop bouncing off walls and calm down to the sound of music. I listen to music every day because of how much I appreciate and love it. The reason why I love music so much is because music always tends to suck me in to what is being sung. Often when I listen to a song, no matter what the song is, I get sucked into the song. What I mean by this is that when I am listening to a song, I imagine the song was intended for me. I relate to the song whether it is from my past, present, or future. This is what causes me to relax whenever I’m listening to music. This is why I view music as a powerful thing. I remember when I was younger and didn’t really relate or pay as much time listening to music like the way I do now. Whenever I heard a song, I never gave it much thought that it actually had meaning behind the lyrics that the artist was trying to get across. I would just nod my head to the beat of the music instead of relating to it like I do now. It took me till freshman year of high school to start seeing and hearing the power in music. During that year, I bought a nice pair of headphones to go along with my IPod. Only then did......

Philosophy Essay

...September 13th, 2015 Weekly essay #1 What is the point of music? Why do people listen to music and often tend to not understand what the lyrics are? Why do we like to listen to something we don't understand or is not inspirational? There are people in this world that like some songs for no apparent reason either because the beat is catchy or just because everyone likes it. Philosophically it is not possible to like a song for no reason because there is always a reason for our actions. For something not to have a reason, it is an action without thought. But since liking something has an idea behind it, it is impossible to like something without reasons. When you like something, it is like an emotion because emotions are caused by reasons. Everyone has reasons for liking songs, some are fond of their likings and some are not. That is why some people admit to liking the songs they listen to and some just keep it to themselves. Therefore, liking something for no reason is impossible. From my experience, I tend to listen to the songs that sound catchy. I have many reasons why I like the songs that I listen to because they are either catchy, have significant lyrics that have meanings behind them or because the words that are being sung in the song connects with the situations that I might be dealing with. People use some songs to express their emotions when they can't explain it by using their own words. For example, the song "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap, many......

Why Eminem Is Important

...Critical Argument Analysis Essay “Why Eminem Is Important” Eng 215 Think about what would happen if there was no Eminem? One less rapper is more than likely what you are thinking right? Well it is not just one less rapper. It would also be one less role model for those who really care about him. Eminem is an influence to the young life and even the adults. His songs are stories based on his life and things that he would have wanted to change or make different. Most of them are based on subjects that actually happened to him first hand. Some of the children growing up in this time and some adults face some of the same problems he faced. Therefore, Eminem is an influence who expresses his self in his own different style or character. His music is an influence because of its rhythmical story behind it. Take the song “Mockingbird” for example; it is a song of how Eminem’s daughter Hailie was growing up with her mom always on the news and her dad (Eminem) was always on the move. If you think about it, not everyone gets to see their parents’ everyday of the week. Some of the children’s parents may work different shifts at their job which makes it unable for the children to see them a lot or as much as they want and this was being expressed during the song “Mockingbird”. Hailie barely got the chance to see her dad or her mom and stayed with her “Crazy Uncle Laney”. It is true that some of his music can be somewhat violent and......

Essay Lyric

...Lyric Essay “You are appreciated.” This is the main point that Tupac is projecting throughout his song to make sure that his listeners and his mother understand. This song, “Dear Mama”, was written to tell the mishaps and unfortunates he faced through his childhood up until his early adulthood. Also he tells the story about life growing up with a single mother as a parent and having siblings that he also shared the same pain with him. He begins the song by letting his mother know he is grateful for everything she has done for him. In life everybody will eventually need someone to lean on whether it’s just for comfort or for help. “Through the drama I can always depend on my mama.” (Tupac Dear Mama Verse 3). Most people lean on family members or close friends but very seldom do will they ask for help from anyone outside of that. In this song Tupac depends on his mother to help raise him because he is young and growing. He goes by saying that no matter if it was right or wrong his mother would always have his back. He explains how his family didn’t have anything but his mama always made something happen so that him and his sister could eat. Even though his mother did drugs she always provided for her family, “and even as a crack fiend mama, you always was a black queen mama” (Tupac Dear Mama Verse 1) In the song Dear Mama Tupac explains how he caused his mother so much stress and pain. “There’s no way I can pay you back, but my plan is to make you understand. You are......

Christian Review

...Job Principal: A Christian leader must never question his faith in God or God’s decisions. Key Verse: Job 42: 5-6 "My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes." Explanation: The book of Job describes a man who had his faith in God put through numerous test. In the story of Job Satan questions Job’s faith in God . He believes that Job’s faith in God is only strong because God protected him from evils in life. Satan wanted to be allowed to test Job’s faith. God did allow for Satan to test Job’s faith but only within reason. When Job began to lose the things that he had once cherished so much in his life he began to question his faith in God. One of Job’s friends tells Job that he needed to remain strong in his faith especially at this time in his life. Job’s story provides a great lesson to Christian leaders about remaining strong in their faith. God may allow Satan to put his people through certain test in life but staying strong and remaining faithful to God is the key to surviving them. Christian leaders may encounter many obstacles during their leadership but they must never stray from God’s faith. Isaiah Principal: Key Verse: Isaiah 6:8Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Explanation: The book of Isaiah is also referred to as The Book of Salvation. Isaiah served as a powerful prophet sent by God to warn his...

Bible 104 Db 1

...When people approach the Bible without any concern for the historical-cultural context, their interpretation of what is written can be seriously misunderstood and lead them to form opinions and ideas other than what was originally intended. There is the danger of interpreting passages far too literally and missing the meaning that it holds for us today. Slavery is an excellent example of this. There are numerous references to slavery being acceptable in the bible. This was, unfortunately, a way of life then. However, that doesn’t mean that we should employ slavery, in any form, today, just because it was acceptable back then. In the Song of Solomon 4:1-4, Solomon proceeds to compliment his love with the following words: 1Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from Mount Gilead. 2 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone. He was, stating that her hair was as beautiful as that of the long, flowing black hair of the goats as the sun shines off of their coats. At a time when dental hygiene wasn’t really a concern, this was quite a compliment, as he was commenting on how white and straight her teeth were. If someone were to comment on the state of our teeth today or refer to your hair as being that of a goat’s, it would be considered quite rude! From a modern aspect, his “compliments” don’t seem to get much better: 3 Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon; your mouth is lovely. Your......

American Idiot

...1. This essay suggests that an "American Idiot" is a perosn that relies on the media and gives into emotional tactics. For example, someone who pledges allegiance before they understand much of anything about America. It is somebody who just does what everybody else is doing. 2. An example of contextual analysis is when you were describing the cover of the album and how the music within inspired your emotions. "Widely considered one of the best anti-war protests of 2004, the album came complete with the picture of a hand gripping a bloody heart-shaped grenade. While the cover gave me an idea for one of the shoot's best photos, it was the music within that gave voice to my anger and consoled my relentlessness, assuring me that I wasn't the only one that believed so passionately that our country was on the wrong track." (page 1, paragraph 4) An example of textual analysis is when you analyzed the term "Redneck Agenda" that had been previously mentioned in the essay. "The 'Redneck Agenda' might also be referring to another favorite punching bag that Armstrong hits in many other songs on the album (most notibly 'Jesus of Suburbia'), the religious right wing of the conservative party." (page 4, paragraph 1) An example of word analysis is when you analyzed the word, "faggot". "while the word 'faggot' is a slang, derogatory term for a homosexual, it has also been used to define anyone who refuses to fight or be 'manly'".

How I Wrote Jubilee

...An Analysis of “How I Wrote Jubilee” Margaret Walker’s essay “How I Wrote Jubilee” is an essay that summarizes the author’s vast research for the Novel Jubilee. Based on stories her great-grandmother portrayed as bedtime stories in her childhood, the novel itself depicts the life and times of a character named Vyry that went through slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction. This responsive essay gives way to an establishment of educated and factual data through timing, oral history of the stories of those who were in slavery, and primary research of the subject matter, thereby providing ample documentation of the credibility of her novel. When gauging whether an author’s writing is credible, one must first inquire what their educational background is. Keeping this in mind, there are several references of the educational background of Walker in the essay “How I Wrote Jubilee.” Graduating from Northwestern University in Iowa at the young age of 19, Walker went on to obtain her master’s in English from the University of Iowa in 1939, graduating in just a year in 1940. Here she studied at the Writer’s Workshop and began writing her thesis on the Civil War, compiling and reading a laundry list of books about the South, the Negro during slavery, and the slave codes in Georgia. Although Walker’s poem “For My People” was published in 1942 her father heeded warning by stating, “I would have to eat if I wanted to live, and writing poetry would not feed me (Walker 52).” It is......

Writing and Me

...fuck! I have to finish this essay tonight and what do I have? Zero inspiration to write something that’s all about me. It seems really easy but damn, my writer’s block is really kicking in. The heat is killing me. I’m sitting in my my room with a refreshing glass of water with two ice cubes, not crushed ice, I hate that shit. I mean why would you want crushed? The pieces are so small you’ll just start to swallow ice. I also have some bad for you poisonous shit chips to my left, but they taste soooo good. I’m listening and singing to some of Coldplay’s great hits on my small little amp. The most notable songs that catch my attention at the moment are: Viva La Vida, Lovers In Japan and Strawberry Swing. Sometimes I try to imagine that there is a strawberry swing on a rolling green hill with the markings of a strawberry on the wood seat of the swing. I love to put myself in the image of what the singer is describing. The lyrics are paint on the canvas of my mind. Thinking about being in someone’s song comforts me. Songs help me get through writing this difficult essay that I wish I weren’t doing at the moment. Wow! I’m almost at two pages. Don’t quit now. Damn. Game of Thrones is on my television.

Reaction - Salvation

...Reaction – “Salvation” The nonfiction short essay “Salvation” written by Langston Hughes in 1940, presents a theme on the literal and often manipulated perception of children. Hughes narrates the essay as he recounts his disappointing attempt at salvation. Hughes aunt told him that when she was saved by Jesus she saw a light, and felt something happen within herself. As children will do, Hughes took her story literally and was heartbroken as he sat in front of the church and watched other children “saved” while he was not. He believed that Jesus must not want him because he did not see or feel anything. In the end, Hughes is forced to lie about accepting Jesus and in turn rejects the Christian faith all together. I related to Hughes story on many accounts. I am a mother of three young children who perceive everything in life literally, and as a young girl I was raised in a very religious environment. I could visualize and almost feel Hughes devastation as he sat at the front of the church crushed by the thoughts of God not wanting him. “Still I kept waiting to see Jesus” (Barnet, Cain, & Burto, 2011, pp. 351). One of the churches that my family attended for a short time during my childhood practiced speaking in tongs. I specifically remember feeling just like Hughes during a service when other children were speaking in unnatural languages perceived to be sent from God himself. I could not understand why I was not chosen to talk for God and intern was hurt and...

Descriptive vs Narrative Essaya

...Descriptive vs. Narrative Essays Camille Hall English 121 Instructor James Welch March 17, 2013 Descriptive vs. Narrative Essays Descriptive essays are much more detailed and expressive than narrative essays and are more apt to hold the reader’s attention by ejecting more emotion. The narrative essay uses detail to advance the story, while the descriptive uses to detail to describe an unfamiliar subject. The ability to describe something convincingly is always important to both the writer and their audience. Both descriptive and narrative essays use detail but for different purposes. In this essay I will compare and contrast two essays; “I Want A Wife” and “Caged Bird” in order to give insight into each type of essay. The aim of a narrative essay is to describe a course of events from a subjective point, is usually told in chronological order, and is usually written in first person. Narrative essays are used to tell a story in a way so that the reader learns a lesson or gains insight, much of this is done through lots of detail about the subject that is being written about. The best narrative essays are those inducing images in the reader’s minds about what's happening by using concrete, specific verbs and nouns rather than a lot of adverbs and adjectives. To write a narrative essay you will need to tell a story (usually about something that has happened to you) or it could be fiction. The purpose is for your reader to learn a lesson or gain insight......

Essay On Tupac

...butt off in other classes and what really helped me was the feedback I got from Professor Pam the things I did wrong or I have to do right. I learned how to do an Outline which is something I truly struggled with, I learned how to take notes it sounds silly but I use to take some horrible notes I’m the type of person I will highlight the whole page because I couldn’t determine if this was important or not.
