The Idan Raichel Project Mi’kol Ha’A’havot ~ Thinking and Praying for our friends in Israel tonight.

**LYRICS TRANSLATION**
Every moment that have been saved (cherish) — old memory,
and everything, that have been forgotten over the years,
everything that all ready past
will you remember them?
will you know? , you are in all of them.

Every letter that never been written
all, everything, that been said
in every sign that revealed to me, and saying –you
the morning dawn that rises up, a leaf that falls down,
the moon in the window (the reflection of the moon through the window).

From all the loves, that there is to dream for, I asked you for me
will you hear my voice, calling you? Will you know?
Will you remember those beautiful silent moments, the whispers of your voice, the touch of your hand?.
from all the loves, that there is to dream for, I asked you for me
you are far away from me, and my heart misses you
and I never asked for\to me anything, but to be yours (apart from being yours)
but to be yours (apart from being yours).

In the midst of the storm I have found shelter in You – yet I am filled with sorrow – From where I hide I can still see the view – of all my crushed dreams for tomorrow – I will pour out my heart… I will surrender my will – and quietly cry for my loss – I will rest in Your strength and surrender until – I find all of my hope in Your cross – Oh, where can I go that You won’t be with me – You’ll never leave me alone – Through tear filled eyes I cannot see clearly – but You are my Cornerstone – You are acquainted with all of my ways – knowing each thought that I think – You will be with me all of my days – no matter how deep my heart sinks – O,h how can I fear with You as my Lord – there is no power You cannot defeat – I will fight with Your Word as my sword – and my enemy will have to retreat – Jesus Christ… Most Powerful One – thank You for being my friend – I need not fear… for the victory’s been won – and I know I will stand in the end.

No Alone – by Jamie Grace

My dearest Pap-Pap, I know you have been with Jesus for a long time now, but I still want to tell you something. I see it now! I really see it now!! I wish I could hug you and kiss you and tell you how thankful I am. I love you and miss you terribly… but so much of what you lived for still lives on. And I know we will be together again someday. I can’t wait! I miss you! This one’s for you!!! Love, your A-Joy

One upon a time… the “dead come to life” story and official music video by jonathan thulin (feat. chamaine) has all the appeal of a storybook, but will quake your bones with the truth of reality. Has a C.S. Lewis feel to it. I’m drawn to the artistic creativity and power delivered in the message. I won’t write a whole commentary. Listen and decide for yourselves. Have a Blessed day!! Love, Amie Joy

JONATHAN THULIN – DEAD COME TO LIFE

Lyrics:

I am the living dead, you are the opposite,
We’re like fire and ice, only one can survive,
My will’s departed.

Life is in your eyes, reach into mine,
I am

A valley of bones covered in stone, nothing more than human,
Do you know, body and soul, you’re calling me good,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the…

I am a foreigner, caught in the cross fire
I am paralyzed by the battle cries, can you hear it?

Life is in your eyes, reach into mine,
I am

A valley of bones covered in stone, nothing more than human,
Do you know, body and soul, you’re calling me good,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the…

We are the trying, thirst, they seem,
Upon this dry and thirsty land.

Will you spread life into the flesh?
Breathe again into the dead, dead.

A valley of bones covered in stone, nothing more than human,
Do you know, body and soul, you’re calling me good,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the dead come to life, dead come to life,
Only with you the dead come to life.
