My Favorite Christmas Carol


Mendekati Perayaan Natal yang diperingati setiap tanggal 25 Desember, disinilah saya mempersembahkan 2 buah lagu natal kesukaan saya dari Mariah Carey. Yaitu “Joy To The World” dan “O Holy Night”. Saya rekam tanpa instrument/musical, hanya vokal saja hehehe.
Selamat menikmati, dan Selamat Natal 25 Desember 2014…!!  😀
Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the earth
The Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

He rules the world
With truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders of His love

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Oh, holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the Angels’ voices
Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’
Fall on your knees, oh, hear, hear the Angels’ voices
Oh, night divine, yeah, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine

Oh, night divine
Oh, night divine
Oh, night divine

You Rescued me…


bagaimana Anda tidak akan sembuh kalau telingamu dan hatimu disuguhi lirik lagu seperti ini? bagaimana Anda tidak akan bersyukur? bagaimana Anda tidak akan bangga? bagaimana iman tidak akan tumbuh dalam hatimu? Friends, iman itulah menjadi kemenangan yang mengalahkan dunia (1 Yoh. 5:4). Karena Firman yang menumbuhkan Iman dan Iman itulah yang mengubahkan hidup kita. Amin

 

 

Hillsong – You Rescued Me – People Just Like Us 1994

 

You rescued me and picked me up

A living hope of grace revealed

A life transformed in righteousness

O Lord You have rescued me

Forgiving me, You healed my heart

And set me free from sin and death

You brought me life You’ve made me whole

O Lord You have rescued me

And You loved me before I knew You

And You knew me for all time

I’ve been created in Your image O Lord

And You bought me, and You sought me

Your blood poured out for me

A new creation in Your image O Lord

You rescued me, You rescued me

You rescued me and picked me up

A living hope of grace revealed

A life transformed in righteousness

O Lord You have rescued me

Forgiving me, You healed my heart

And set me free from sin and death

You brought me life You’ve made me whole

O Lord You have rescued me

And You loved me before I knew You

And You knew me for all time

I’ve been created in Your image O Lord

And You bought me, and You sought me

Your blood poured out for me

A new creation in Your image O Lord

You rescued me (x6)

 

Tribute to Whitney Houston : I Will Always Love You (R.I.P)


 

 

If I should stay,

I would only be in your way.
So I’ll go, but I know
I’ll think of you ev’ry step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

You, my darling you. Hmm.


Bittersweet memories
that is all I’m taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don’t cry.
We both know I’m not what you, you need.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.
You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I’ll always, I’ll always love you.

This is one of my favorite songs, and quite often I sing. This song is so romantic and express how we are to love someone with a sincere heart and pure, always and forever. I really like Whitney Houston type of sound, a very melodious voice, but now no longer exists. Whitney Houston-bye, and thank God for the wonderful and has given voice to whitney houston exquisite grace.

REST  IN  PEACE  WHITNEY  HOUSTON

The world is in shock with the unexpected news of the death of Whitney Houston.

The talented singer was found dead in her room on the fourth floor at the Beverley Hilton Hotel – she was 48 years old.

The cause of her death is unknown but there is a lot of speculation regarding a drug overdose.

Apparently Whitney’s body was found by her bodyguard in her hotel room.

A spokesman for the local police department said that emergency services had been called to the hotel at 3.43pm on Saturday, arriving minutes later.

They attempted to revive Whitney using CPR and after 20 minutes of unsuccessful attempts, she was pronounced dead at 3.55pm

Houston died on the night of the Grammy Awards, a place where the singing sensation has shared her phenomenal talent with millions in the past.

Celebrities took to Twitter to express their sadness and to pay their respect.

Mariah Carey wrote, ‘Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston,’

‘My heartfelt condolences to Whitney’s family and to all her millions of fans throughout the world. She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth.’

Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon added, ‘Tell our loved ones how much we love them while they’re still here. I wish I could’ve told Whitney how great she was one last time.’

Singer Gloria Estefan also took to Twitter saying, ‘Shocked we’ve lost the immensely talented Whitney Houston!’

’Sending prayers of peace & solace 2 her family, friends & fans! Such a loss! Such an amazing talent!’

Dolly Parton, who wrote I Will Always Love You, said, ‘mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, “Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.’”

Singer Aretha Franklin said, ‘I just can’t talk about it now.  It’s so stunning and unbelievable. I couldn’t believe what I was reading coming across the TV screen. My heart goes out to Cissy (Houston’s mother), her daughter Bobbi Kris, her family and Bobby (Brown).’

Rihanna also expressed her sadness writing, ‘No words! Just tears #DearWhitney’

Quincy Jones also released a written statement saying, ‘I am absolutely heartbroken at the news of Whitney’s passing. I always regretted not having had the opportunity to work with her. She was a true original and a talent beyond compare. I will miss her terribly.’

But her passing has affected everyone and even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took to Twitter saying, ‘R.I.P. Whitney Houston. Thank you for the amazing music you brought into the world.’

Whitney’s ex-husband Bobby Brown was said to be ‘in and out of crying fits’ upon hearing the news  but he still appeared on stage on Saturday with his band New Edition.

During his concert in Mississippi, the 43-year-old tearfully shouted, ‘I love you, Whitney,’ as he blew kisses to the sky.

The couple has an 18-year-old daughter together, Bobbi Kristina.

Houston’s mother Cissie apparently spoke to her daughter just half an hour before her death, and did not think anything was wrong.

The world has surely lost a legend – Whitney won six Grammy awards, two Emmys, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards, among others.

Her album ‘Whitney’ was the first album by a woman to ever debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold more than 170million albums worldwide.

At her peak in the 1980′s and 90′s, Houston was the golden girl of the music industry and one of the world’s best-selling artists.

Her success carried her beyond music to movies like ‘The Bodyguard’.

But by the end of her career, drug use took its toll as her record sales plummeted and her voice became raspy and hoarse.

Whitney’s image became tarnished by her well-documented troubles, including her turbulent marriage to singer Bobby Brown.

By the end of her career, Houston became a stunning cautionary tale of the toll of drug use.

She confessed to abusing cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her once pristine voice became unable to hit the high notes as she had during her prime.

‘The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy,’ Houston told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an infamous 2002 interview with then-husband Brown by her side.

Houston was born into greatness. She was the daughter of gospel singer Cissy Houston, the cousin of 1960′s pop diva Dionne Warwick and the goddaughter of Aretha Franklin.
