Wii dance 3 Review –Christian Review — Warning: Inappropriate Language

Comments 2 Standard

You sing trivial songs to the sound of the harp
    and fancy yourselves to be great musicians like David.
 You drink wine by the bowlful
    and perfume yourselves with fragrant lotions. Amos 6:5 (in other words, God sees us sitting around singing worthless songs, chanting them over and over. We think we are something else, great musicians as we sing worthless songs. He must wonder..Why aren’t they thanking me? praying to me? singing to ME?)

     I don’t like to rain on anyone’s parade, but you need to know the filth being filtered into the hearts of your children. Above all- Guard your heart- for out of it flow the issues of life. The issues flowing out of the songs our youth are listening to are promiscuity, filth and demonic oppression!  We should be filling our hearts and mind with songs of praise, songs of thanksgiving, and songs of remembrance.Take some time and read the words our children are chanting to just a few of the songs in the dance 3 from Wii.
     I was at my child’s school event last month and they had a dj for the kids. All the songs from the Wii and radio were being played and blared throughout the school. I could not believe the hundreds and hundreds of kids who not only knew the words to the songs, but also every dance move to these songs. We are talking 5-9 year olds singing about sex, promiscuity, and evil- and dancing to it.
     We need to open our eyes. It’s not just the Wii and dance 3- it’s everything! The words in the songs, movies, tv shows, commercials, advertisements…it’s time to get serious about guarding our children and their hearts. 
      Wii dance 4 is bad too! I tried the country dance and had to return it because the animated dancer was half-naked with major cleavage. What is society trying to do to the next generation?  What are we teaching our sons and daughters? I hear my children singing these songs, their friends chanting them. and I …gasp! Even woke up singing some of this garbage in my heart.  The unedited versions of some of these songs are even worse. What I have written here is what you will hear on Dance 3.

   I’ve written some of the lyrics of the songs with a breakdown note below each one.  Wii Dance 3 has about 48 songs, this reviews only 10 of the 48.   Stop and take a listen……………………….

 Corrupting the next generation

1-Promiscuous Girl

You lookin’ for her in the day time with the light
You might be the type if I play my cards right
I’ll find out by the end of the night  
You expect me to just let you hit it
But will you still respect me if you get it
Promiscuous girl  Wherever you are
I’m all alone And it’s you that I want

and the girl sings: Promiscuous boy You already know that I’m all yours What you waiting for?
and he serenades:  Promiscuous girl You’re teasing me, you know what I want And I got what you need
[N:] Roses are red Some diamonds are blue, Chivalry is dead But you’re still kinda cute.

 


2-ET by Katy Perry 
 

You’re so hypnotizing  Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?
Your touch magnetizing

Feels like I am floating  
Leaves my body glowing
They say, be afraid  You’re not like the others Futuristic lover
Different DNA  They don’t understand you
You’re from a whole ‘nother world
A different dimension You open my eyes
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, kiss me Infect me with your love and Fill me with your poison
Wanna be a victim Ready for abduction
Boy, you’re an alien Your touch so foreign It’s supernatural Extraterrestrial
You’re so supersonic Wanna feel your powers Stun me with your lasers

Your kiss is cosmic Every move is magic
This is transcendental On another level Boy, you’re my lucky star
I wanna walk on your wave length And be there when you vibrate
For you I’ll risk it all

Break it down: I’m speechless. I feel sick. There is something really creepy going on here. There is nothing human about this song. …fill me with your poison, wanna feel your powers, are you a devil?.. Sounds like a serenade to a fallen angel. Trying to make this song okay will not work. She is messing with something that is dark & evil and sharing it with the world. “Hey kids! Now you can be gay, straight, or intergalactic!” When I sat to watch this on Wii, I got the weirdest feeling in my heart.  Just so wrong, and it looks like she is wearing ram horns.

3-Pump It-

wanna hate on us  (thank you for leaving out the N word, wii)
be envious
And I know why they hating on usJust confess, your girl admits that we da shhhhhhhhhhh When we play you shake your ………
(Shake it shake it) shake it girl
Make sure you don’t break it, girl
But chick backstage when we in town (ha)
She like man on drunk (fool)
She wanna hit n’ run (errr)
Yeah, that’s the speed
That’s what we do
That’s who we be
That’s what we do
That’s who we be
B-L-A-C-K -E -Y-E-D-P to the E, then the A to the S
When we play you shake your (…………silence)

Break it down:  so my kids can fill in the blanks they left here “ When we play, you shake your….”. Sure it could be anything. But really, How many things are left to shake?  And “girl admit that we da shhhhhhh”. Uhhh, anything could start with sh, I wonder what your kids sing to that?  The unedited version of this song uses the N word! Then we have the drinking, the hit and run…..

4-I don’t feel like dancing

Wake up in the morning with a head like ‘What ya done?’
This used to be the life but I don’t need another one
Good luck cuttin’ nothin’, carryin’ on, you wear them gowns
So how come I feel so lonely when you’re up gettin’ down?
But I don’t feel like dancin’ when the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance but my two feet can’t find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft shoe gentle sway
But I don’t feel like dancin’, no sir, no dancin’ today
Rather be home with the one in bed till dawn with you
So I’ll just pretend that I know which way to bend
And I’m gonna tell the whole world that you’re mine
Just please understand when I see you clapped your hands
If you stick around I’m sure that you’ll be fine
Why’d you break it down when I’m not in the mood?
Don’t feel like dancin’, dancin’
Rather be home with no one if I can’t get down with you
Just lay me down As you float away into the shimmer light

Break it down: Somebody pass the Prozac! seriously! Someone down in the dumps – a deep dark hole-put this song and dance together. It totally spooks me out. Something very dark and sinister is in this video and music. “In bed with you till dawn…which way to bend”. Those are just some of the words chanted over and over.  I can’t figure out what is dancing. It’s not a girl, or a man…it’s an iceberg drag queen. I can, however, tell you that this dance threw my shoulder out and tore a ligament. Let’s check out the lyrics. “Rather be in bed till dawn with you, so I’ll pretend that I know which way to bend” ? What in the world…I don’t even want to go there…moving on….. “rather be home with no one if I can’t get down with you” Promiscuity at it best. Our teenagers and our children should not be singing this. despicable! 

5-Katy Perry: Teenage Dream

Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever
You make me feel Like I’m livin’ a
Teenage dream The way you turn me on
My heart stops When you look at me
Just one touch Now baby I believe
This is real
got drunk on the beach Got a motel
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever
I’m a get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
The way you turn me on

Break it down: Katy at it again, don’t know who this is with- a man, woman, an animal, or extraterrestrial. Background setting is a high school prom dance as she sings: runaway with me, just one touch, lets go all the way, got a motel, let me be your teenage dream tonight, ill let you put your hands on me tonight, no regrets.  I don’t think I can elaborate any more than the words of the song….  I hope your children aren’t putting this in their heart. You have been warned. It will affect them, it will become part of their life. Fair warning. You heard it.


6-Boom!

   It’s in Spanish and  translations vary- but let’s just say it’s promiscuous.

Break it down:  This is a perfect instructional for innapropriate dancing – not the dance you want to do at the family picnic, reunion, or Christmas party- nor the dance you want to see your 10 year old daughter dance to- and heaven forbid! No boys should ever ever dance this.  I couldn’t locate real lyrics, but the dancing is ungodly, that is putting it mildly. A few of the songs on the wii are in a different language,  finding the correct translation has been difficult (especially for the Bollywood rainbow hindu song) Try to figure out the lyrics, I give up. Super weird, but again, if you are looking for an instructional dance video on dancing inappropriately, this would be the one.


7- Lollipop
I said, sucking too hard on your lollipop,
or love’s gonna get you down,I said,
sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down.
Sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down,
sucking too hard on your lollipop, or love’s gonna get you down.
Say love, say love,
or love’s gonna get you down love’s gonna get you down.
Take a look at the girl next door,
she’s a player and a down right whore,
Jesus slows up, she wants more,
oh bad girls get you down.
Too much candy will rot your soul.

Breaking it down: I did my research on this song. The singer claims it’s an innocent song to his niece about love. That is a load of bull crap right there. Come on! The tune is catchy and awesome, the dance is super fun, but when I hear my girls singing “sucking hard on my lollipop”…something just doesn’t sit right with that. If my son was singing that I’d chase him out of the house. If you think it’s innocent, listen to your kid sing it as they dance- your insides will cringe. Makes calling the girl in the song a whore look like child’s play. Who would notice Whore and Jesus in the same sentence here… as we are trying to figure out why a dude would sing a song about sucking too hard on a lollipop as a way to teach his niece about love. PUHLEASE. How stupid do they think we are? If he is talking to his niece about love why does he say the neighbor is a whore. Hello! Can I get a witness out there? The dance is super fun but the lyrics weird me out. I’m not sure about the candyland background on this one, the “sock puppets” …I have no comment there. Maybe my mind is just in the gutter after reading all these lyrics. I need some holy oil over here.


8- LMFAO- Party Rock anthem

Party rock is in the house tonight Everybody just have a good time And we gonna make you lose your mind Everybody just have a good time
Party rock is in the house tonight Everybody just have a good time And we gonna make you lose your mind We just wanna see ya shake that
In the club party rock, lookin’ for your girl? She on my jock Nonstop when we in the spot, booty movin’ weight like she on the block Where the drank? I gots to know, tight jeans, tattoo ’cause I’m rock ‘n’ roll Half black, half white, domino, game the money, op-a-doe
Yo, I’m runnin’ through these ho’s like Drano I got that devilish flow, rock ‘n’ roll, no halo We party rock, yeah, that’s the crew that I’m reppin’ On the rise to the top, no lead in our zeppelin, hey We just wanna see you shake it now Now you wanna be, you’re naked now

Breaking it down: First off… the name LMFAO should be a warning sign. If you don’t know what it means, don’t look it up. “I’m running through these ho’s like drano” that should be a second warning. Again, I don’t know what gender it is that is dancing..I’m so confused? It’s a man? No..a woman? No.. a nephilim? I couldn’t tell you. Have no idear. We are told to “shake that” with drinks and a devilish flow. Just lose your mind and have a good time. Obvious message it to lose your mind. To be honest, the first thought that popped in my head when I heard these lyrics was the drugs and “date drugs” people drop in drinks in clubs. What else would make someone lose their mind while out dancing? 

9-Jump for my love

Hold me, I’ll give you all that you need Wrap your love around me You’re so excited, I can feel you getting hotter Oh baby, I’ll take you down, I’ll take you down Where no one’s ever gone before And if you want more, if you want more, more, more feel my touch Jump if you want to taste my kisses In the night then, jump, jump for my love Jump, you know these arms can feel you up Your love burns inside
Oh it feels so right  Come to me if you want me tonight, jump  I know my heart can Make you happy
Jump, you know these arms can feel you up  Jump in, you want to taste my kisses

Sure, this could be innocent. I’m sure she is talking about Hershey kisses in the night…..and she probably has a fever or some kind of infection. It’s just not a song I want my children singing.  We are all so programmed to these songs that we don’t recognize the impact they have on us.
 


10- Gwen Stephani- What are you waiting for?
( You stupid!!!- chanted in this song 4x to listener)

Born to perish, life is shortake a chance you stupid
Take a chance you stupid Take a chance you stupid
Take a chance you stupid
You’re still a super hot female
You got your million-dollar contract
I can’t wait to go back into Japan
Get me lots of brand new fans
Damn you’ve got some wicked style

Stop and image your child dancing to those lyrics. I’m sure Gwen was singing to herself, but I’m not quite sure ,hmmm. She couldn’t have gotten this far with that stinking thinking. I think she is calling everyone else stupid (hoes)- wording in the original version. Money, fame, materials, the normal american dream. Radio version says take a chance you stupid hoe. Nice, real nice.

Sidenote on a few more:
Baby one more time– another lovely song to dance to about hitting it one more time because their loneliness is killing them sung by cheerleaders.
Mamasita– spanish song with two dancers, one a women and the other being is beyond questionable. At one point I thought maybe it was michael Jackson? Skirt is so short, I’m pretty sure I saw some digital underwear.
Chemical Brothers Hey boy, Hey girl. If you are looking for an acid trip minus the acid, here’s your portal. Some twisting circular mayan looking background with what looks like a marijuana leaf as it’s center. Dancing indian chief is totally cracked out. Seems very occultic and if you turn the music down and just watch the dancing,  it looks like he is possessed. Reminds me of a 6th grade teacher I had who would beat our desks with a ruler. Demonic acid trip dancing. Totally weird.
Pata Pata– African? Cool dance, but we have no idea what words the tribal indian ladies are dancing to.
Giddy on up– super cool dance, but having my children sing along about her loser boyfriend who dumped her for another chick who wears bath and body works… not what I want to hear. Plus she is dressed like a call girl from the old westerns. Another depressing love gone bad story.
Beautiful liar: open up with two girls gyrating –not a family time move….another song about a love story gone wrong. Blah blah blah
Anja – “Dance All Nite”: a  few lyrics, you decide:  I drink Cristal champagne it’s only the best I sit in V.I.P, I’m above the rest, Give me more… Give me more… Give me more… I’m just a sexy girl With men around the world, Champagne and caviar Hotels and fancy cars
Bollywood Rainbow – “Kurio ko uddah le jana” It’s a Hindu dance song.. NO TRANSLATION FOUND! Can you believe this? Why can’t they make a Christian dance song?

Guard your heart above all else,
    for it determines the course of your life.
 Avoid all perverse talk;
    stay away from corrupt speech.
 Look straight ahead,
    and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet;
    stay on the safe path.
Don’t get sidetracked;
    keep your feet from following evil.Proverbs 4:23

There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. Revelation 8:1

Comments 28 Standard

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. Revelation 8:1

Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. Zech 2:13
Be still before the Lord, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling (niv)

 

And there was silence in heaven…………………..

           I’ve always wondered about this. What was going on in heaven during this silence? Was it fear? Was it trembling? Was it a stillness? And what about the time frame we are given? It always sends my mind and imagination off into every scenario. I’ve decided to search the scripture for some clues to this mystery.

What has sparked this study?…I sense a stillness and silence when I go to the Lord, I don’t know if it’s just me… or if something is going on. I just sense this silence and I’ve sensed it for about two weeks.  Its got me wondering- what is going on? It’s not that the Lord isn’t working or speaking, it’s different… it’s like a stillness…as if I was watching a race and I could see disaster ahead, like a cliff that the race car driver couldn’t see and there would be no way to warn him ….. and a silent gasp – stillness in awe/terror- of what is coming. Maybe it’s me? I don’t know, but it has sparked my curiosity further…..so off I go.

 

If you want to know more, read Zephaniah 1 and Isaiah 24 (see below) I believe both of these chapters have within them the keys to this time and to this mystery of Revelation 8:1. I’m focusing on the “silent” part, haven’t really dove into the time frame study.

      It seems, according to scripture, there is a silence before destruction. We see silence as reverence, a silencing of our enemies,  a way to act when we are angry, yet over and over again we see a silence both before destruction and a silence after the desolation. I imagine all the host of heavens still –gasping to breath- silence as they watch the Lord God Almighty rise up from His throne. What a terrifying moment.

Here are some verses that have stirred the Fear of the Lord within me as I went about this study:

      And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance or seek my blessings. I will destroy my own people, because they refuse to change their evil ways. The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions,violated his laws, and broken his everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse consumes the earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin.They are destroyed by fire, and only a few are left alive. The grapevines waste away, and there is no new wine. All the merrymakers sigh and mourn. The cheerful sound of tambourines is stilled; the happy cries of celebration are heard no more.  The melodious chords of the harp are silent. Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign LORD, for the awesome day of the LORD’s judgment is near. The LORD has prepared his people for a great slaughter and has chosen their executioners.” Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign Lord, for the awesome day of the Lord’s judgment is near.“I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” says the Lord. “I will sweep away people and animals alike. I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish in the sea.I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, and I will wipe humanity from the face of the earth,” says the Lord. Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations
Our God approaches, and he is not silent. Fire devours everything in his way, and a great storm rages around himPsalm 65:7 Psalm 50:3 Zech 2;13 Zephaniah 1:6 Jer 15:7 Is 24,Zephaniah 1:7

    Could the Lord be about to rise up? I heard these words a few months ago- Weep O Ye People, fall down before Him in Reverent Fear- I am silent now in a frozen state, almost wondering what is ahead.

    servants and masters,
    maids and mistresses,
    buyers and sellers,
    lenders and borrowers,
    bankers and debtors—none will be spared.
The earth will be completely emptied and looted.
    The Lord has spoken!
The earth mourns and dries up,
    and the crops waste away and wither.
    Even the greatest people on earth waste away.
The earth suffers for the sins of its people,
    for they have twisted God’s instructions,
violated his laws,
    and broken his everlasting covenant.
Therefore, a curse consumes the earth.
    Its people must pay the price for their sin.
They are destroyed by fire,
    and only a few are left alive.
The grapevines waste away,
    and there is no new wine.
    All the merrymakers sigh and mourn.
The cheerful sound of tambourines is stilled;
    the happy cries of celebration are heard no more.
    The melodious chords of the harp are silent.
Gone are the joys of wine and song;
    alcoholic drink turns bitter in the mouth.
10 The city writhes in chaos;
    every home is locked to keep out intruders.
11 Mobs gather in the streets, crying out for wine.
    Joy has turned to gloom.
    Gladness has been banished from the land.
12 The city is left in ruins,
    its gates battered down.
13 Throughout the earth the story is the same—
    only a remnant is left,
like the stray olives left on the tree
    or the few grapes left on the vine after harvest.
14 But all who are left shout and sing for joy.
    Those in the west praise the Lord’s majesty.
15 In eastern lands, give glory to the Lord.
    In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
16 We hear songs of praise from the ends of the earth,
    songs that give glory to the Righteous One!

But my heart is heavy with grief.
    Weep for me, for I wither away.
Deceit still prevails,
    and treachery is everywhere.
17 Terror and traps and snares will be your lot,
    you people of the earth.
18 Those who flee in terror will fall into a trap,
    and those who escape the trap will be caught in a snare.

Destruction falls like rain from the heavens;
    the foundations of the earth shake.
19 The earth has broken up.
    It has utterly collapsed;
    it is violently shaken.
20 The earth staggers like a drunk.
    It trembles like a tent in a storm.
It falls and will not rise again,
    for the guilt of its rebellion is very heavy.

21 In that day the Lord will punish the gods in the heavens
    and the proud rulers of the nations on earth.
22 They will be rounded up and put in prison.
    They will be shut up in prison
    and will finally be punished.
23 Then the glory of the moon will wane,
    and the brightness of the sun will fade,
for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will rule on Mount Zion.
    He will rule in great glory in Jerusalem,
    in the sight of all the leaders of his people.

Zephaniah 1

1 The Lord gave this message to Zephaniah when Josiah son of Amon was king of Judah. Zephaniah was the son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah.

 “I will sweep away everything
    from the face of the earth,” says the Lord.
“I will sweep away people and animals alike.
    I will sweep away the birds of the sky and the fish in the sea.
I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble,[a]
    and I will wipe humanity from the face of the earth,” says the Lord.
“I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist
    and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship.
I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests,
    so that even the memory of them will disappear.
For they go up to their roofs
    and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars.
They claim to follow the Lord,
    but then they worship Molech, too.
And I will destroy those who used to worship me
    but now no longer do.
They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance
    or seek my blessings.”

Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign Lord,
    for the awesome day of the Lord’s judgment is near.
The Lord has prepared his people for a great slaughter
    and has chosen their executioners.[c]
“On that day of judgment,”
    says the Lord,
“I will punish the leaders and princes of Judah
    and all those following pagan customs.
Yes, I will punish those who participate in pagan worship ceremonies,
    and those who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.

10 “On that day,” says the Lord,
    “a cry of alarm will come from the Fish Gate
and echo throughout the New Quarter of the city.[d]
    And a great crash will sound from the hills.
11 Wail in sorrow, all you who live in the market area,
    for all the merchants and traders will be destroyed.

12 “I will search with lanterns in Jerusalem’s darkest corners
    to punish those who sit complacent in their sins.
They think the Lord will do nothing to them,
    either good or bad.
13 So their property will be plundered,
    their homes will be ransacked.
They will build new homes
    but never live in them.
They will plant vineyards
    but never drink wine from them.

14 “That terrible day of the Lord is near.
    Swiftly it comes—
a day of bitter tears,
    a day when even strong men will cry out.
15 It will be a day when the Lord’s anger is poured out—
    a day of terrible distress and anguish,
a day of ruin and desolation,
    a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and blackness,
16     a day of trumpet calls and battle cries.
Down go the walled cities
    and the strongest battlements!

17 “Because you have sinned against the Lord,
    I will make you grope around like the blind.
Your blood will be poured into the dust,
    and your bodies will lie rotting on the ground.”

18 Your silver and gold will not save you
    on that day of the Lord’s anger.
For the whole land will be devoured
    by the fire of his jealousy.
He will make a terrifying end
    of all the people on earth.

             May His Words be sent out and not return void.  May the Lord fill you with all wisdom and understanding , as you walk in obedience and in reverent Awe of our Lord God and His Holy Son Jesus Christ. Grace and Peace of the Lord God and His Son Jesus be with you all.

A Great Shaking

Comment 1 Standard

 

        I heard these words while I was praying. I did not add to them, I did not take away from them -except for some things directed at me specifically and answers to questions I had asked. Let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart as you read.

07-23-11

The Earth and all that are in it are mine, saith the Lord
Their ways are perverted and they refuse to listen.
I am the Holy and Powerful God
There is none like me
None before me
for I AM

For My people are rebellious and refuse to listen
and I said
 “Lord, won’t you soften their hearts?
   Will you open their eyes?
    Will you let them see?”
And I heard:
 They see, but do not
They hear but won’t listen
I call, but they turn

There will be a great upshaking
For the Lord is a consuming Fire
A great Blaze is HE.

Look! The Lord comes!
Weep you people!
Cry out quickly!
before your time has run out.

September 2010

The heavens are His Mighty Throne
and the Earth is his footstool.
He will slam the nations with His feet (I saw wrath poured out)
for the whole world has started to turn from Him.
They have turned their back on Him
   —and to the churches- How are you reaching the How are you  lost?
Are you bringing them in?

You come to my house and raise your hands
but you must gather as many as you can.

2012
Though the winds come
You shall not fall
For I am with you
I am your God
I am Holy
Come with trembling fear and reverence before Me
for no one understands
No one is wise
Do they know who I am?
I am the all powerful God
My lightning flashes throught the sky
and my breath breaks the mountains
I am furious with my people
Who in all is wise?
Who knows Me – The Lord God Almighty
For I am about to do something new in your day
that you would not believe if I had told you.

Are you angry Lord?
My wrath is boiling over
Lord, I’m sorry, I stand silent

Lord, why does your wrath boil over?
For My People have rejected Me

What shall I tell
them?
Tell them I love them

2012
My people are lost sheep
There is no void to the sinning
Tell my people I love them

Listen, Obey the Sabbath
I still love you
You shall walk across the waters and you shall not be afraid
Don’t you know how much I love you?
Tell me Lord so I understand
Among all the earth I see you and listen to you
I hear your cry and see your tears
All the earth and Heavens are Mine
I can make the Earth Quake with a blast of my breath
Yet I am genle witht my hand reaching out to you
Powers of the enemy are coming down
Strong because they know there is little time left
The children, the children, the children
My children need to know me
