This is absolutely funny Hokkien stuff!!!!

 

Hokkien Lyrics

English Translation

(without the eloquence)

Hokkien Part One:

Hwa cia lee si gway soh
Si zai ho qit toe

U lang ai speeding
U lang de ban ban soh

U lang jit chiew hwa cia
Jit chiew de girlfriend poh

U lang kwa cha bor
Di long tio lao ah poh

Hokkien Part Two:

Ang teng ci teng kua buay cheng cho
Xiong gway tio chut cia hor

Lim jew hwa cia de long tio lang
See lee yee sheng a tua cho

Pager nah hiang tio ai lun
Ah handphone tio san ban

Ai jit CBD tio buay twa
Bus-stand lee tio zai siam

Hokkien Part Three:

Hwa cia lee si gway soh
Mm si hor qit toe

Na lee boh suay lee
Liam mi tio u lang toe

Hwa cia si gway soh
Cen ban mai qit toe

Na li ai ti kee (heh heh)
Licence tio ga lee koh

Chinese (hanyu pin yin) Last Part:

Ren shuo ma lu ru hu kou ah
Jiao tong gui ze ni yao zun shou
Hong deng ting lai lu deng zou ah
Huang deng yi liang jiu bie cai you
Ning ke chi dao ji fen zhong ah
Ye bu yao ji zhe ba ming song

English Part One:

Driving your car aimlessly around the streets
Is really fun

Some like speeding
Some will crawl slowly

Some one hand drive
Another hand hold girlfriend

Some watch girls
And knock down old man

English Part Two:

Red Light Green Light don’t see properly
Car accident easiet to happen

Drink and drive and knock down somebody
That is the biggest mistake of your life

If pager go off must restrain
Handphone will get summon

Enter CBD must buy ticket
Bus-stands must know to avoid

English Part Three:

Driving your car aimlessly around the streets
Is not fun

If you are not careful
Anyhow also will have people fall

Driving your car aimlessly around the streets
Do not anyhow play

If you are still stubborn (iron teeth) heh heh
Licence will be detained

English Last Part:

People Say Road Is Like Tiger Mouth
Traffic rules you must obey
Red light stop Green Light go
Amber light don’t step on accelerator
Rather be late for few minutes
And Don’t rush to give away your life

All other ground is sinking sand…

THE SOLID ROCK

Keith W. Ward
Scientist
Coatesville, PA

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

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

—Edward Mote (1797-1874)

Heard Michael W Smith sing a short part of this song in the new movie watched in church called ‘The Second Chance”. The full version is below. You can also download the simple mp3 to hear how the hymn sounds like.

 

A little background on the hymn :

(http://www.faithalone.org/journal/1998i/Ward.html)

The name of Edward Mote does not often rest on the lips of the Church today in the same fashion as Fanny J. Crosby, B. B. McKinney, Ira Sankey, or other greats in hymnody. However, the testimony of his life is one that should inspire all Christians. Mote was not brought up in a godly home and did not have the advantage of early exposure to Scripture. In fact, his parents managed a pub in London and often neglected young Edward, who spent most of his Sundays playing in the city streets. Of his theological upbringing, he said “So ignorant was I that I did not know that there was a God.”

Eventually Mote became exposed to the Word of God, and was baptized at the age of 18. This event, however, did not send Mote immediately into the ministry. He was apprenticed to become a cabinetmaker, a career which he successfully conducted for another 37 years. Eventually, at the age of 55, he became pastor of a Baptist church in Horsham, Sussex, where he did not miss a Sunday in the pulpit for the next 21 years. He resigned from this pastorate in 1873 due to ill health, and died the following year at the age of 77.

It was with this background that Mote wrote the hymn we have today, “The Solid Rock.” It was during his career as a cabinetmaker that the hymn came into being. One morning in 1834 as he was walking to work, it entered his mind to write a hymn. By the time he got to work, he had the chorus. He wrote four more verses over the course of that day and two additional verses before he was finished.

Awesome album which i had the privilege of listening to. Never really knew where some of these songs that I’ve sung in church came from till now. All thanks to Alicia for bringing it to my attention.

Songs 5 & 8 especially….

Lyrics for Song 8:

It’s a song of spiritual abandonment to God. Can I really abandon myself to Jesus the way the songs represents? Really powerful words to go with a very musically well-arranged song. Listen to the original song from the album and you’ll know what I mean. It’s draws out all of our senses in worship when we focus upon it.


Have Your Way

Lead me each day Lord closer to You
I give all I am to You
Hold me each day Lord close to Your heart
I lay down my plans to follow You
I wanna take up my cross
I wanna lay down my dreams to follow after You

Have Your way in my life
Holy Spirit have Your way
Do what You need to
Day by day walk with You
Father let Your will be done, in my heart

You said my steps would be ordered if I walk in Your way
Lead me, Lead me
So lead me on the path to righteous
Come and have Your way in my life
