exchange

“Exchange” by Parousia

Every so often I complain
About how life’s been unfair to me
And how I deserve so much more
Than what I possess currently

It’s a sentiment that makes no sense
When I look at what I have at Your expense

It’s an unfair exchange
And I can’t fathom why
You’re so willing to accept my sorrow
In an unequal trade
For Your inexplicable joy
You give me riches for my poverty

Now I understand that I am blessed
I see that my demands are absurd
There’s ample reason to celebrate
Your grace, more than I deserve

It’s a sentiment that makes no sense
When I look at what I have at Your expense

It’s an unfair exchange
And I can’t fathom why
You’re so willing to accept my sorrow
In an unequal trade
For Your inexplicable joy
You give me riches for my poverty

You, the Creator of the universe
Have laid down Your everything for me
How could I ask for more?
How could I ask for more?

Woh-ho..Woh-ho…Woh-hoooh

This songs talks about how we demand so much, yet actually Jesus has already laid down his life for our lives, willing to accept our sorrow in an unfair and unequal exchange, giving us and blessing us richly. How can we ask for more?

aiy havn’t posted for a week, wonder what’s keeping me from posting as regularly as i did…

yesterday nite went to parousia’s album launch gig @ the third place…a nice little cafe-church, small but with a superb loud sound system that deaf-ed my right ear…lol. start at 8pm and there were 3 other guest bands performing…aiyo waste my time sia, cos parousia only came at 10pm. I should have just came later and not rushed here so fast! cos the 3 bands were really er cmi though I must admit they are good to a certain extent but they don’t suite my taste…2 of them are very heavy-metal punk rock kind, at least skive was more decent.

i went there alone cos no one I knew wanted to go. but i met some vj people there, like SC pres alvin lim, jasmine, david, both from SC, and vincent. had a little chat with david and the rest on the ride home. at least I had some company =p

parousia was good, though they seemed to perform less than the other bands. whenn they sang their album title song, which they also sang an acoustic version at musicfest, I didn’t know “exchange” was so rock! hah. it was very cool, lloyd has a great voice and jeff plays and sings very very well. it ended slightly before 11pm. there was some autograph session. I bought their CD and let them sign…hee.

today had auditions for YM’s youth glamour nite…hmm sang “till I see you” and “love song for a saviour” with louis haha then steph said to do the latter one only. did a band with jere and the rest. hmm…later jon and biondi also wanted to join us with love song.
