You know what I've been groovin' to this weekend? Song #146, "You Did It For Me" -- we sang it at our last CLAM Meeting.

I've listened to it tons of times since it was released and mumbled along to the words in the car. But I never actually *read* the words 'til we sang it Thursday night.

Wow. Just... wow. It's a beautiful poem expressly for the Other Sheep. It's so moving and humbling to realize that Jesus actually recognizes a DEBT to be paid.... to US!!! 1f62e.png:o Such honor and respect shown to his human followers... because we support his brothers. 1f62e.png:o 2764.png<3

Phrases in this song touch me so unexpectedly. The second half of the second verse... the King actually addressing us! The second half of the third verse... "The King will then say to the sheep on his right, 'inherit the earth and perfection of life'"... 1f622.png:'( 1f603.png:D 2764.png<3

Wow. Just.... wow.... Just wanted to share my verklempt moments with you all... 1f642.png:)

So profound...thank you for sharing Uani! 

 

Actually, this would be a great topic of discussion if some are amenable to the idea.  If it's ok with our sister, I'd like to ask you all: Which of the new 19 songs that were released within the last year or so are your favorite (i.e. not just to listen to but which one(s) have "touched your heart" as you'll listening or have moved you to a certain point?

 

I have a favorite but I'll share mine after reading others. :detective:

Wonderful expressions Sister Uani, how our Father must have enjoyed seeing you write down just how you you were so moved by 1 of the songs written by "His Sons" in order to help us in appreciating the incredible generosity of our Jehovah and Jesus!  :)

This is a wonderful song. One of my favorite of this new group of songs. 

 

My favorite part it's this one: "The love that you showed me up I won't forget. I will recompense you with everlasting life." (one part of the chorus in Portuguese) My eyes shine in this verse!

 

Anyway, my "most favorite" is "Light in a Darkened World". The melody here is so epic!

I also really like song 146. When we sang it at the meeting, I really felt it was for us. Beautiful feeling.

But somehow I like the Dutch lyrics more than the English one.. ( most of the time it's the opposite haha..)
I have made a translation back to English, so you can also enjoy a little bit the Dutch lyrics haha

1. Jezus leidt een groot volk, and’re schapen genoemd,
Jesus leads a big nation, called other sheep

en zij dienen God samen met Jezus’ broers.
And they serve God together with Jesus' brothers

Al wat zij voor hen doen,of het klein is of groot,
All what they do for them, even though it's small or big,

zijn dingen waarvoor Jezus hen graag beloont
Are the things Jesus wants to reward them for

(REFREIN)
(Chorus)

‘Want je hield veel van hen, zo hield je van mij.
Because you loved them very much, you loved me

Al wat jij voor hen deed, dat deed je voor mij.
Everything you did for them, you did it for me.

Je zorgde voor hen, dus je zorgde voor mij!
You cared for them, so you cared for me!

Je hield veel van hen, je hield veel van mij.
You loved them very much, you loved me very much.

Ja, je deed het voor hen, je deed het voor mij.’
Yes, you did it for them, you did it for me.


2: Ik had honger en dorst, ja, het leven was zwaar,
I had hunger and thirst, yes the life was tough,

maar jij zorgde voor mij, je stond voor me klaar.
But you cared for me, you were there for me.

’‘Maar wanneer dan?’, vraag jij.‘Wat ik deed was gewoon.
"But when?", you ask. "What I did was normal"

’De Koning vertelt je op vriend’lijke toon:
The King tells you with a friendly voice:

(Chorus)

3: Je bent mij altijd trouw, wat je doet maakt me blij
You are always loyal to me, what you do makes me happy

en je predikt met hen die broers van me zijn.
and you preach with those who are brothers of me.

’Dan vertelt hij de schapen aan zijn rechterhand:
Then he tells to the sheep at his right hand:

‘Je krijgt eeuwig leven, ik geef je dit land.’
You get everlasting life, I give you this land.

(Chorus)
