I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me

The other song we would be singing in the retreat is “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me. It is also a moving song as it speaks of the mystery of being with the Lord finally. We do not know what would happen then, what we could be doing when it happens. Shall we talk to Jesus when we see Him face to face? Shall we kneel before His feet?

Indeed, it remains to be a mystery and can only imagine what would that day be. What is sure is that it would be a joyous and glorious day that is beyond description. I just can’t wait at all….

You’ll Come by Hillsong

One of our speakers in our forthcoming retreat requested the band to sing two songs. One is “You’ll Come” by Hillsong. I sought it out in You Tube to learn the song. I found the You Tube video version of it from the Hillsong chapel.

It speaks of a believer’s faith in Jesus, a faithful anticipation of His return and it is sure as the sun will shine and the dawn will appear. Jesus will break all chains, heal lives, open all eyes as He reveals Himself.

We will not be shaken because our Lord will come for us.

“I Receive” by Israel Houghton

I have been trying to look for a song that I can use for our praise and worship teams’ spiritual retreat this coming October 25-26, 2011 at out church main sanctuary. I have been tyring to find a song that would fit our theme- “Experiencing God’s Power through Music”.

I could not find a song with lyrics about experiencing God’s power in You Tube but I have told myself perhaps I could find a song that would help explain what the theme says.

After several clicks and views, I have come across this song “I Receive” by Israel Houghton. I have found a video that looks like a small worship gathering and I have watched it.

The song speaks of receiving God’s love by grace at the cross and it has redeemed us from sin and has transformed us from within. Indeed, if we understand this truth by heart we can experience the power from God that saves and transforms. In that way, we too can receive the power to share that power unto others that they too might experience the power of God’s love in their lives.

I have tried to look for a lyric and chord sheet of the song in the net but there’s none so I have decided to buy a music sheet notation of the song from Musicnotes.com. I cannot share the sheet here because it’s patented but I would like to share the song here from the You Tube video that I have watched. Hope you will be blessed as well.
