Nani gi

This week’s song of the week is also an old one. For the longest time I knew just the first line of the song and hummed the rest. Last week though, as I was searching for the lyrics of last week’s song of the week, I diverted to Nathaniel Bassey songs (I love Him so much), and then this song popped up. I was like why not? Let me kuku learn the lyrics then I downloaded the song cos singing along is better than singing alone and the song has been on repeat since then. The song is by Mairo Ese. Lyrics you ask? Here they are 

Here we’ve come
To worship you
And praise your holy name
There is no one like you Lord
You deserving all our praise
Here we’ve come
To worship you
And praise your holy name
There is no one like you Lord
You deserving all our praise

Chorus:
I bu chimoooooooo
I bu chim
I bu chimoooooooo
Onye nji eme onu
Nani gi bu chimoooo
Onye nwe mooo
Nani gi bu chimoooo
Onye nwe mooo

Creator of it all
Creator of all things
Every knee shall bow
At your feet
And worship and declear
Nani gi bu chim
And you alone are God
Onye nwe mooo
Oh we worship
No other God
No other God but you
In heaven on earth and forever
You alone are God
Oh we worship, from our heart
Jesus, oh how we love you
Oh onye nwem

You can download the song here

In Christ Alone

This song has been on repeat on my phone all week. It’s the song I talked about here that led me to tears (I’m usually hardcore ooo). These are the lyrics to the song and I’ll add a download link because I think the version of the song I have is amazing. It inserted the chorus of that “My Hope is built on nothing less” hymn in it and I just think its really amazing. Okay to the lyrics:

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain,
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand:
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

You can download the song (or hymn, I’m not really sure) here. I hope you like it as much as I do.
