Songs to sing!

Well I listen daily to the local christian radio station, gaining wonderful insights via programs like "focus on the family"http://www.family.org/, "insight for living"http://www.insight.org/, "family life today"http://www.familylife.org.au/, and there are many others too...
But I often are moved by the lyrics of the many songs that are played over the airways...
When I first returned to following Jesus, september 2002, I listened to the radio whenever i was able, as I wasnt able to attend church. There was a song that must've been in the top of the charts at the time, that really got me hooked, it was called - "HE REIGNS" by the NewsBoyshttp://newsboys.com/default.asp.
I could just visualise people all over the world singing out the anthem... and it was cool!!! Nevermind the "DOOF DOOF DOOF" noise eminating from cool cars doing mainies... I had my radio cranked everytime it came on! Even my boys liked the song :)
Here I thought Id share the lyrics with you...

He Reigns
It’s the song of the redeemed
Rising from the African plain
It’s the song of the forgiven
Drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers
Filled with God’s holy fire
It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation
A love song born of a grateful choir
It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
Let it rise about the four winds
Caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals
To the faithful gathered underground
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation
Some were meant to persist
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples
None rings truer than this
And all the powers of darkness
Tremble at what they’ve just heard
‘Cause all the powers of darkness
Can’t drown out a single word
When all God’s children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns
All God’s people singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, He reigns

Infact the whole album is brilliant!

Here's the second song on the album Adoration...

You Are My King (Amazing Love)
I’m forgiven because You were forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
I’m alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again
Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true
It’s my joy to honor You In all I do, to honor
You You are my King
You are my King
Jesus, You are my King
You are my King

I just found the lyrics (and music) inspirational and anted to share it with u :)


Night, Night, sleep tight, dont let the bed bugs bite!
