Hard Pressed

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

– Lyrics –


We are hard pressed on every side
But not crushed

Perplexed, but not in despair

Persecuted but not abandoned
Struck down, but not destroyed
Persecuted but not abandoned
Struck down

Repeat All

We are hard pressed on every side
But not crushed

Perplexed, but not in despair

Listen to Him

7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My beloved Son: hear Him.

– Mark 9:7

– Lyrics –


Peter went with James and John
Jesus led them to a mountain
A voice from heaven said
A voice from heaven said to them
“Listen to Him”

You gotta listen to Him
Listen to Him

His shining face like the sun
His shining face shone to everyone
His clothes became as white
His clothes became as white as light
Listen to Him

You gotta listen to Him (listen to Him)
You gotta listen to Him (listen to Him)

Moses and Elijah talking there with Jesus
A cloud enveloped them
Terrified, the disciples face down to the ground
Looked up and the only one they found was Jesus
Glorified, Glorified

This is My Son whom I love
This is My Son whom I love
With Him I am well pleased
With Him I am well pleased
Listen to Him

You better listen to Him (listen to Him)
Wo listen to Him (listen to Him)
Listen, listen, listen because:

This is My Son whom I love
This is My Son whom I love
With Him I am well pleased
With Him I am well pleased
Listen to Him

Listen to Him

Everything We Need

According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

– 2 Peter 1:3

His divine power has given us
Everything, everything we need
His divine power has given us
Everything, everything we need

By His own glory and goodness
He has given everything for
Life and godliness
Through our knowledge of Him
Who called us
By His own glory and goodness

Everything, everything we need
His divine power has given us
Everything, everything we need

Angels Long to Look Into These Things

12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. (1 Peter 1:12)

– Lyrics –


Angels long to look into these things, (repeat 3x)
The glory of Jesus!

He has given us new birth into a living hope
Through His resurrection from the dead.
He has given us new birth into inheritance
That can never perish, spoil or fade.
In this we greatly rejoice even though we suffer
Grief and trials, we have genuine faith.
We are filled with joy, we love Him, we believe in Him
Even though we have not seen His face.

Joy inexpressible and glorious
We are receiving the goal of our faith!

Chorus
Angels long to look into these things, (repeat 3x)
The glory of Jesus!

The prophets intently searched, searched with the greatest care
To find the time when Christ would come.
It was not revealed to those who were searching.
But now we know the glory of the Son
Concerning this salvation the grace that has come to us
Praise God the mystery’s been revealed!
We are filled with joy, we love Him ,we believe in Him!
And angels long to look in these things.

Chorus
Angels long to look into these things, (repeat 3x)
The glory of Jesus!

Joy inexpressible and glorious
We are receiving the goal of our faith

– Acappella

O Wretched Man That I Am!

“O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 7:24-25a (King James Version)

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23 (King James Version)

What Do You Think?

~ What Do You Think – by Acappella ~

Luke 15:3~7

“3 And He [Jesus Christ] spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing, 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in Heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him [the Lord Jesus Christ] the iniquity of us all.”

John 10:11

“[Jesus said,] I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.”

(Scripture quotations from the KJV Bible)

 

By Request, ‘Angels Long to Look into These Things’

I requested this on Lee Duigon’s blog a couple of months ago. “Angels Long To Look Into These Things”, my favorite a capella song, sung by Acappella.

Lee Duigon

Requested by Joshua: Angels Long to Look into These Things, by Acappella. Taken from the Scriptures, 1 Peter 1:12. “Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.”

The Christmas Concerts

My brother, Jeremy, and I played Christmas songs for some people. Our first day of Christmas concerts was on Thursday, December 13th. Jay played the ukulele and I played the guitar.

We played five songs for each concert.

{ Christmas medley – 3 songs }

Song No. 1 – “Silent Night

The first song in the medley was “Silent Night”. Here’s one by Il Divo.

Song No. 2 – “Joy to the World”

The second song was “Joy to the World”.  Here’s one by Acappella.

Song No. 3 – “El Santa Pasa” (“El Condor Pasa”)

And the third song of our medley was “El Santa Pasa”. We changed the title of “El Condor Pasa”, a South American song, to make it into a “Christmas song”. 🙂 “The Santa Passes”… get it? Here’s one performed with saxophones by the Christmas Band!

{ Sing-alongs }

Song No 4. – “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

We also played some easy songs that the people can sing along with. We sang “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” together! Here’s Mr. Munson playing the song on the guitar (with lyrics).

And the last song we played and sang was “Jingle Bells“! This is a ukulele performance by Hoang Luu.
