Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko (guitar Cover)

Guitar cover of Noel Cabangon’s “Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko”. Enjoy!
Please like and comment if you like this song. =)
Lyrics:
Kung tayo ay matanda na
Sana’y di tayo magbago
Kailan man nasaan ma’y
Ito ang pangarap ko
Makuha mo pa kayang
Ako’y hagkan at yakapin ooooooh
Hanggang sa pagtanda natin
Nagtatanong lang sa ‘yo
Ako pa kaya’y ibigin mo
Kung maputi na ang buhok ko

Pagdating ng araw
Ang ‘yong buhok
Ay puputi na rin
Sabay tayong mangangarap
Nang nakaraan sa ‘tin

Ang nakalipas ay ibabalik natin ooooooh
Ipapaalala ko sa ‘yo
Ang aking pangako
Na ang pag-ibig ko’y laging sa ‘yo
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko

Ang nakalipas ay ibabalik natin hmmmmmm
Ipapaalala ko sa ‘yo
Ang aking pangako
Na ang pag-ibig ko’y laging sa ‘yo
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko

Hallelujah for the Blood (alternate tune)

Alternate tune for the Lelia Morris’ hymn “Hallelujah for the Blood”. Please enjoy listening! =)

Words:

1. Hallelujah for the blood, for the sin-cleansing fountain,
For the Lamb has been slain, and the ransom price paid;
Fully cancelled was the debt, when on Calvary’s mountain
All the sins of this world upon Jesus were laid.

Refrain:
There was no arm to save, there was no eye to pity,
Until Jesus our Savior from glory came down;
He was mighty to save, He was strong to deliver,
He has brought us salvation, a robe and a crown;
Hallelujah, hallelujah, sing the triumphant strain;
Hallelujah, for the blood and the Lamb that was slain.

2. Hallelujah for the blood; sing for joy, all ye nations,
And rejoice that the work of redemption is done;
Here is pardon free for all, and a perfect salvation
Through the sin-cleansing blood of the Crucified One.

3. Hallelujah for the blood, hallelujah forever!
We shall sing it anew in the kingdom of God,
Where the anthems of delight shall be silent, no, never;
Evermore hallelujah for Christ and the blood.

Each Step I Take – Guitar Cover

I hope you will be blessed by this new rendition of “Each Step I Take”. Thanks and God bless! Don’t forget to leave a comment, share, or download this song if you really enjoyed it. =)

Hymn Lyrics:
Each step I take my Saviour goes before me,
And with His loving hand He leads the way,
And with each breath I whisper “I adore Thee;”
Oh, what joy to walk with Him each day.

Refrain:
Each step I take I know that He will guide me;
To higher ground He ever leads me on.
Until some day the last step will be taken.
Each step I take just leads me closer home.

At times I feel my faith begin to waver,
When up ahead I see a chasm wide.
It’s then I turn and look up to my Saviour,
I am strong when He is by my side.

I trust in God, no matter come what may,
For life eternal in His hand,
He holds the key that opens up the way,
That will lead me to the promised land.

LYRICS:
All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through life has been my Guide?
Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well,
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living bread.
Though my weary steps may falter,
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! a spring of joy I see,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! a spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me;
Oh, the fullness of His grace!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s blest embrace.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way,
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way.

Worthy is the Lamb – Guitar Cover

Classical guitar rendition of the worship song, “Worthy is the Lamb”. Enjoy and don’t forget to follow if you like this tune!

May we always remember that Christ is worthy “to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”

To God be the Glory!
Lyrics:
Thank you for the cross Lord
Thank you for the price You paid
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love You came and gave amazing grace

Thank you for this love Lord
Thank you for the nail pierced hands
Washed me in Your cleansing flow
Now all I know Your forgiveness and embrace

Chorus:
Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious
High and lifted up
Jesus, Son of God
The Darling of Heaven crucified
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

Blessings – Laura Story (guitar cover)

Instrumental Cover of Laura Story’s “Blessings”. Check it out – I hope you will be blessed by the words and music of this song.
Recorded December of 2013.

LYRICS:
We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not,
This is not our home
It’s not our home

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise


This World Is Not My Home

Playing the well known hymn “This World is Not my Home” on classical guitar. Enjoy!

LYRICS:
I. This world is not my home I’m just passing through
my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Chorus: O Lord you know I have no friend like you
if Heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

II. They’re all expecting me and that’s one thing I know
my savior pardoned me and now I onward go
I know he’ll take me through though I am weak and poor
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

III. Just up in Glory Land we’ll live eternally
the saints on every hand are shouting victory
their song of sweetest praise drifts back from Heaven’s shore
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore
