Music

Take me out of the dark / Letting go

Two poems, two prayers, two heartfelt songs
Trust and faith in Jesus
Inspirational

Merry Christmas!

Artist: Gary Valenciano
Gary V, according to Google

From Ateneo de Manila High School (last week’s When I Met You music post; all Apo Hiking Society members went to AMHS), we move to La Salle Green Hills, where Gary V attended primary and secondary school. (On tertiary level, these 2 schools/universities have been huge rivals forever. I’m a forever-green-blooded Lasallian.)

For this week, please allow me to do 2 songs, both inspirational (Christian). And this isn’t only because we’re both Lasallians. These songs comfort me. They calm me.

Take Me Out of the Dark

Just what is it in me?
Sometimes I just don’t know
What keeps me in Your love,
Why you never let me go

And though you’re in me now,
I fall and hurt you still
My Lord, please show me how
To know just how you feel

You have forgiven me
Too many times it seems
I feel I’m not what you might call
A worthy Christian after all

And though I love You so
Temptation finds it’s way to me

Teach me to trust in You
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won’t give me what I can’t bear

Take me out of the dark, my Lord
I don’t wanna be there

You’ve never left my side
You gave Your hand to me to hold
Oh Jesus, I’m no longer in the cold

And yet, I leave You there
When I feel satisfied
I’d like to thank You every day
Not only when I feel that way

I’ve never known a Man
Who’d give His life for sinners like me
And yet, because He loves us so
He’s promised us eternity
And we can have that promise
And be His if we have faith
And just believe

Teach us to trust in you
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
We just forget
You won’t give us what we can’t bear

Take us out of the dark, My Lord
‘Cause we don’t want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
We don’t wanna be there, My Lord

Trust in You with all my heart
Lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won’t give me what I can’t bear

Take me out of the dark, My Lord
Cause we don’t want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
I don’t want to be there

Letting Go

I used to feel the emptiness inside me
I was not supposed to feel that way
I had everything I needed
But nothing ever made me
What I longed to be
The wealth, the name
The lights, the fame
Were everything to me
And then one night
Out of the blue
I heard His name (Jesus)
And so I took that step of faith
And walked into His domain
I believe that’s what He wants
Every heart to do
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you

Letting go to know the truth
Is not so hard to do
It’s the heart that’s got the will
To open up for Him to fill
And trusting and believing Him
Is all we’ve got to do
It’s just the heart that’s got to move
For Him to show His love that’s been there
Even when we never cared
Take hold of His hand
Let go and you’ll understand

Why be afraid
For God knows what you’re feeling
But even He can’t do a thing
If He sees the heart’s not willing
And so we ask what’s going on
We want what’s right and still do wrong
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you

I guess by now you’d realize
You can’t be on your own
And all your cares
And all your burdens
Should be cast upon His throne
Letting go, just let go, letting go
Let go and you’ll understand
Just let go and you’ll understand
