Hillsong United – “King of All Days” Lyrics

The title says it all 🙂 Beautiful song of praise. The chorus is especially touching – “I’m found in the arms of Love!” … “I’ll run to Your arms of Love.” Oh God, I don’t ever want to be outside of your arms of Love! There is no other place for me!

“King of All Days”

In Your surrender
As You laid down Your life
You took up a sinner’s cross
And Your life rescued mine

In His redemption
Love and mercy displayed
You lifted my eyes to see
That your truth never fails

Lord of the Heavens
King of all days
Without You my world slips away
Redeemed by Your mercy
Consumed by Your grace
Now I live for You

I’m found in the arms of Love
For Your merely saved my soul
I’ll run to Your arms of Love
Your light’s gonna lead me Home

Glorious Savior
In Your light I am free
The things of this world will fade
Still You are all that I need


(chorus) – 2x

And at Your cross I lay my burdens
At Your feet, where Your love covers
All I’ve done
Now I’ll walk with You, Lord

Now I’ll walk with You, Lord
Now I’ll walk with You, Lord
Now I’ll walk with You, Lord!!!


Toy Story 3!

I am SO happy!!! Toy Story was my favorite movie as a child and I just learned that they’re making a 3rd one! Ah! I remember in the second one, they were moving, so I wonder if they’ll pick up from there, showing Andy and the Toy’s life in their new house. OR, if they’ll fast -forward (I mean… it has been a few years!) and show Andy all grown up. Maybe he’s past the age of playing with toys and the toys now belong to his sister, or are neglected altogether. I don’t know, I’m just excited! It comes out June 18, 2010. Here’s the teaser:

Aprann Kreyòl Ayisyen! (Learn Haitian Creole!)

Zanmi mwen, Sunnie, prale Ayiti lete sa a. Kounyeya, l’ ap aprann kreyòl ayisyen. Mwen konnen ki anpil moun yo vle aprann li, alò m’ vle separe kèk paj yo pou ede nepòt moun yo ki ta renmen aprann kreyòl ayisyen! (Ositou, mwen pè ki mwen pral bliye tout mo yo ke m’ te aprann nan lekòl. Sa a se bon pratike pou mwen.)

My friend, Sunnie, is going to go to Haiti this summer. Right now, she is learning Haitian Creole. I know that a lot of people want to learn it, so I want to share some pages to help any people that would like to learn Haitian Creole! (Also, I’m afraid that I will forget all the words that I learned in school! This is good practice for me.)

Hillsong United – “Oh You Bring” Lyrics

A beautiful pledge of our need for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is all-sufficient for anything we could ever desire or require! Be blessed!

“Oh You Bring”

God we fix our eyes on You tonight, Lord
On Your cross
On Your goodness
On Your salvation, Lord
There’s nothing greater, Father
That’s why we worship You, Lord
You, Lord

Oh You bring hope to the hopeless
And light to those in the darkness
And death to life
Now I’m alive

Oh You give peace to the restless
And joy to homes that are broken
I see You now
In You I’m found

And You opened the door for me
And You laid down Your life to set me free
All that I am will serve You, Lord

Oh You fill those who are empty
And rescue those in the valley
You do it all
You calm us all

Oh now You find me in my weakness
And heal the wounds of my heartache
I worship You
In spirit and truth

And You opened the door for me
And You laid down Your life to set me free
All that I am will serve You lord
And You opened my eyes to see
All Your wonder and all of Christ in me
Jesus, You’re everything I need

I need
It’s You I need
You’re all I need
You’re everything

All honor
All glory
All praise to You

And You opened the door for me
And You laid down Your life to set me free
All that I am will serve You, Lord
And You opened my eyes to see
All the wonder and all of Christ in me
Jesus, You’re everything I need

I need
It’s You I need
I need
It’s You I need


O.M.G. I just found out that the winner of the YouTube search for the Beatbox Battle World Championship Wildcard is Julia Dales!!! A FEMALE!!!! In my original post about the Wildcard battle on YouTube, I expressed disappointment that I couldn’t find any female competitors. And look at that. A woman won! Haha, that’s funny. Here’s her winning audition video:

I actually don’t think she was the best, though. I really liked Ammar and totally think he should have won. He has original beats, which is so much more creative than spitting beats from mainstream songs. If they wanted someone who replicates songs, then I think they should have picked Daichi. He was definitely better than Julia. But still, congrats, girl. It’s always nice to see women advancing in the world of hip hop.

Hillsong United – “Soon” Lyrics

Such a beautiful song of hope and anticipation of what we children of God have to look forward to experiencing. Come, Lord Jesus, come. And please come SOON!


Soon and very soon
My King is coming
Clothed in righteousness
And crowned with Love
When I see Him I shall be made light again
Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon,
I’ll be going
To the place He has
Prepared for me
Then I stand amazed
My sin forgotten
Soon and very soon

I will be
With the one I love
With unveiled face I’ll see Him
Then my soul
Will be satisfied
Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon
See the procession
The angels and the elders
‘Round the throne
At His feet I lay
My crimes, my worship
Soon and very soon


Though I have not seen Him
My heart knows Him well
Jesus Christ, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven


Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon
