Now Playing: Power of Your Love

Sometimes an old song given a new twist delivers a fresh message. 
Power of Your Love
Hillsong United
Performed by Sr. Susay Valdez, rc
"Stand by Me Still"


Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I found in You.
And Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love.
 
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side.
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love.
 
Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me.
Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
by the power of Your love.

 
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side.
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love.


And I will soar with You

Your Spirit leads me on

In the power of Your love.

I had tired of listening to this song already because it tended to be a bit sappy; and also because it was too "feminine"--the images and the tone that Darlene Z uses when she sings this. But when I heard this version by Sr. Susay, I was not only hooked but the words became quite real again to me.

I will never listen to The Power of Your Love the same way again after hearing Susay sing this her way.

You said it! Lingkod staff even attended a Rick Warren conference wherein his dance ministry (straight from Hawaii, with a Filipino on centerstage) did an interpretative dance of the song, and elicited snickers from us instead of encouraged us to worship. Thanks for the CD. The other cuts are great, too.
