禱吿 (I Pray)

?? I PrayA mandarin worship song by 赞美之 (Stream Of Praise).  The lyrics speak of how we remind ourselves of why we pray - because we are totally helpless and should be dependent on a God who is far more dependable and who loves us more than we can ever imagine. We need to pray to God unceasingly, and Jesus Himself teaches us how to, in the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13.

So let us continue to worship God, and pray to Him because He is great and glorious, because He provides for all our needs and for our sustenance, because He has forgiven our sins through the blood and sacrifice of His only begotten Son Jesus, and because He sustains us and enables us with His Holy Spirit to resist power of sin in our lives.

Please translate it to English thanks from a fan and brother in Christ from the Philippines :)

Hey czachnoid, the English lyrics for I Pray by Streams Of Praise are:

I pray, for I am nothing.
I pray, for I clearly know i need to seek Your will as it's shown to me.
I pray, for I am searching.
I pray, for Your love is what I need.
On my knees, through the valleys You walk with me.

Chorus:
Some things I only wanna let You know because no one loves me like You, my Lord.
Though tears of pain may fall out, You're with me I have no doubt.
As day breaks Lord I wanna cry to You, because You so love me, You'll pull me through.
The strength that i need I receive every morning, Your grace is all I need.

Wow... I am blessed and moved by this song

HI Graham, thanks for posting this song. It is very encouraging. Would you be able to post the song with chinese characters and pinyin?

Graham Choo said...

Hey ray42,

You can find the lyrics in Chinese characters in the Lyrics & Chords sheet at the bottom of the post.

Putting in the hanyu pinyin would make the PDF too cluttered, so I'll leave that out.

Thanks!
