Footsteps of Angels

Com um passo lento e silencioso aproxima-se aquela mensageira divina,

Senta-se na cadeira ao meu lado, coloca a sua gentil mão na minha.

E ela olha-me e sorri-me com aquele olhar carinhoso e profundo,

Como as estrelas, tão imóveis e santas, que do Céu observam o mundo.

Deixa a luz cair em ti, iluminar-te a alma e mostrar-te de novo o encanto, ofuscando os males guardados e escondidos como se fossem apenas parte de um passado – passado esse que não volta mais, que se distancia pelos dias que passam e pelos novos marcos que a vida te acaba de presentear. Deixa a chuva molhar-te, refrescar-te a alma. Deixa-a apagar a brasa quente que te consome o coração, causada por um rastilho que não se apagou no devido momento. Deixa o ar encher-te de novos aromas que levemente pairam no ar e libertar-te do ar já consumido, que se mistura com as poeiras passadas que não caíram por terra na altura devida. Deixa o sorriso estampar-se de novo no teu rosto como algo que se ausentou por demasiado tempo. Deixa a esperança invadir o teu espírito e tomar conta do leme do teu barco. Deixa a vida dar-te vida de novo. E não desistas de esquecer que, um dia, foste capaz de te lembrar que não querias viver

Do you think about
Everything you've been through?
You never thought you'd be so depressed...
Are you wondering,
Is it life or death?
Do you think that there's no one like you?

We are.
We are.
We are.

We are the ones.
We get knocked down;
We get back up and stand above the crowd.
We are one.

"The life I think about
Is so much better than this.
I never thought I'd be stuck in this mess...
I'm sick of wondering
Is it life or death?
I need to figure out who's behind me..."

We are.
We are.
We are.

We are the ones.
We get knocked down;
We get back up and stand above the crowd.
We are one.


Talking to God,
Hearing what he wants.
He moves in violence;
I stand in silence...

Who can question You, who can fathom You?
In your presence, who can stand?
Worlds spin around and kings crumble down.
There's no escaping what You­'ve planned...

Winds approaching, clouds are forming;
God, in his power,
Is swirling around me,
Calling me, and you know my name.
So jump in or be taken, I can't
Run long enough, or go far enough,
To escape the screaming rain.

My world's at stake,
I want to break,
Stop the striving,
Start the dying.
I'm thrown into it;
It's so imminent...
There's no arguing what You say.
I keep fanning the fire to flames...

Master and Savior, Sustainer and Creator;
You move in power,
And winds and thunder...

It's alright.

It's alright.
Jump in the whirlwind;
Letting go.
Letting go.
I'm letting go.

I'm here again,
A thousand miles away from you.
A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am.
I tried so hard,
Thought I could do this on my own.
I've lost so much along the way...
I've come undone,
But you make sense of who I am,
Like puzzle pieces in your hand...

Then I see your face,
I know I'm finally yours.
I find everything I thought I'd lost before...
You call my name,
I come to you in pieces,
So you can make me whole.

The Man Who Wasn't There

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there.
He wasn’t there again today;
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

When I came home last night at three,

The man was there, waiting for me.
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn’t see him there at all.
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more.
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door...

Last night, upon the stair,
I saw a man who wasn’t there.
He wasn’t there again today;
Oh, how I wish he’d go away...

Jesus Reigns

Times are hard, times have changed.
Don't you say?
But I keep holding on to you.
It's hard to keep the faith alive day after day.
Leaning on the strength I've found in you;
You're the hope of all the Earth.

Far beyond what I can see or comprehend,

Etching your eternity in me.
Nations stream and angels sing, "Jesus reigns";
And every knee bows down.

You're the hope of all the Earth.

You are my hope, you are my strength.

You're everything, everything I need.

Carry on and I sing of how
You love us, and I love you now.
All the times that I start to sink,
You come and you rescue me.

Footprints In The Sand

One night, a girl had a dream. She dreamed she was walking along the beach with God.
Scenes from her life flashed across the sky. In each scene, she noticed two sets of footprints in the sand : one belonging to her, and the other to God.

When the last scene of her life flashed before her, she looked back at the footprints in the sand. She noticed that, many times along the path of her life, there was only one set of footprints. She also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in her life, when she was suffering from anguish, sorrow and defeat.

"Father, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. Why have you not been there for me when I needed you most...?"

"My precious child; I love you, and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you..."

You Were Always There, Even When I Rejected You...

Because You picked me up, when I struggled to get through.
Because You healed my heart, when it was thrown and shattered.
Because You gave me hope, when it seemed so out of reach.
Because You filled me with peace, when chaos flowed through my veins.
Because You showed me the light, when there was only darkness.
Because You gave me comfort, when my voice cried out in pain.
Because You reassured me, when the doubts screamed in my head.
Because You kept me going, when there seemed nowhere to go.
Because You sustained me with strength, when weakness became all I knew.
Because You came and stayed, when everyone else turned around and left.
Because You gave me a purpose, when life seemed so pointless.
Because You restored my happiness, when life seemed to snatch it away.
Because You filled this emptiness, when the void echoed with loneliness.
Because You helped me let it all go, when I gripped the tightest to hold on.
Because You showed me the beauty of life, when the world showed me nothing but hate and corruption.
Because You gave me a better life, when the old one fought to come back.
Because I am nothing without You, nothing but a hopeless being.
Because only You could tear down my wall of pride, and instead build it back up with love and humbleness.
Because of all this, I give You my life.
I will put all my fears and failures in Your hands, my worries that consume me, my pain that destroys me.
You were always there, even when I rejected You.
Because of all You are… my life, dear God, is yours.

The Cross

Nothing's ever changed, you still turn away.
You've washed your hands, you've made that all too clear;
You just keep on living this lie...

You refuse to see, you're denying me,
The cross I bear, but you don't seem to care;
Even Judas knew he had lied...

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears...

Why are you waiting to embrace me, my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real.
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name, my dear...

I'm sorry if you can't stand the naked truth.
All you see is how you want it to be;
So you keep on living your life...

Release me from this cross after all these years.
Oh, call my name, and help me with this weight,
Even though it comes far too late.

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears...

In my heart I still hope you will open the door,
You can purify it all, answer my call...

Why? Why...?

You can purify it all, answer my call...
