rubenromijn Thanks Frank en Marlou voor deze geweldige creatieve en diepgaande aanbiddingsmuziek. Het is heerlijk om Zijn aanwezigheid te zoeken en te groeien naar Zijn beeld, en jullie album helpt daar enorm bij. Fijn dat dit bestaat. Duizendmaal dank voor het delen van deze gift! Muzikaal fris, wat mij betreft zou dit geen "alternative" hoeven te heten, maar liever "common" ofzo! ;) Jullie stemmen zijn trouwens allebei schitterend. Hoop dat God jullie zegent en blijft inspireren! Blessings! Favorite track: Psalm.

There’s a reason that we worship There’s a reason that we sing There’s a reason that we bow down And give glory to our King For from Him comes our existence And in Him we find our life Paid the highest price to save us There’s no greater sacrifice Chorus: We belong to the Day We belong to the Light We belong to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, forever (2x) We were born for such a time as this There’s a calling on our lives To bring freedom to the captives Be victorious as we fight We’ll defend the cause of widows And for justice take a stand Help the orphans and the poor ones For the Kingdom is at hand (Chorus) You were born for such a time as this There’s a calling on your life To bring freedom to the captives Be victorious as you fight Will you defend the cause of widows And for justice take a stand Help the orphans and the poor ones For the Kingdom is at hand You Belong to the Day...
My heart is steadfast oh God I will sing and make music With all of my soul Awake harp and lyre Awake harp and lyre I will awaken the dawn Chorus: I will awaken the dawn With my praise to my God With my praise to my God (2x) I will praise you oh Lord I will sing of you among the nations For great is your love Higher than the heavens Your faithfulness reached to the skies (Chorus) Be exalted, oh God, above the heavens And let Your glory be over all the earth
All men are like grass And their glory is like The flowers in the field The grass withers and the flowers fall But the Word of the Lord stands forever If you have ears to hear Than hear the good news proclaimed to you He forgives your sins gives life in His Son For the Word of the Lord stands forever Jesus, You are Life Eternal 4x
Love 04:47
Love is patient, love is kind The greatest treasure one can find Never acts in selfish gain If I lack love I live in vain Love takes its delight in truth Not in wrongs that some may do Always hopes, always endures It is love my heart pursues Chorus: I may speak in tongues of man, even angels Have the faith to move the mountains I may know all things Understand all mysteries But if I lack love, what would I gain? I may give all that I have Die a sacrificial death It would be like blaring brass If without love my days would pass (Chorus) Love never ends Love never fails One day we'll see you Face to face Then we will know you Just as God knows us now
Now 05:27
Now I’m standing on the threshold Willing to lay down my life for you One and only, chosen by God The dream became reality, my wish came true (2x) Chorus: We will be sharing our lives together from this precious day Until the the coming of Jesus our saviour Or until the day that death do us part Now I found in you my equal But I gladly bow down my head So that you can take the right place According to Gods purpose as His Word has said (Chorus) Now we’re standing face to face I long to be held into your warm embrace Yours and Jesus, we will be one And walk our path together ‘till our days are done (Chorus)
How I long to see the beauty of your presence The fullness of Your grace To stay within Your dwelling place forever To know you face to face To know you face to face Come fire of God, purify me Open my eyes so I can see Amazing grace, sanctify me Make me holy unto you (Chorus) You are the joy of my desire You placed me like a seal on Your heart Your love it burns like a blazing fire Consuming all of me Bridge: I want the friendship and the fear The innocence and the intimacy Lord, won’t you meet me here Remove the veil so I can see You
Scarlet 06:51
Chorus: Even if your sins were red as scarlet I will wash them white as snow (2x) I will wash them white as snow Part 1: Come to me, my arms are open wide Come to me, I won’t condemn you Come to me, be honest in my sight Come to me, I’ll always love you Part 2: There’s nothing you could do I wouldn’t know of There’s nothing you could hide Nothing you could cover up Part 3: Because I know you And I love you I want to help you Help you change
Secret Place 05:41
Take me into the secret place Where I meet you face to face (2x) You are a shield around me You lift me up When darkness comes You light my way You are my strength and glory Whom shall I fear But you the only wise God Who covers me
Hey, little girl Don’t you know how beautiful Amazingly courageous you are? Hey, woman Ever since the world began You nurtured and gave birth to ev’ry soul Pre-chorus: By Him you were created Perfect and consecrated Pure and beloved you are In Him you’re called, appointed Chosen to be anointed vessels A blessing to the world Chorus: Because you’re daughters of Eve Daughters of Sarah, daughters of God (2x) Hey, little girl Through all ages you have been Oppresses, enslaved, abused and broken down Poor woman Raped and beaten, mutilated, killed Humiliated, rights denied (Pre-chorus, chorus, instrumental) Hey, little girl There’s someone who knows and cares about you And who’s love will never fail Hey, woman He’s your father, king and friend For you he’s even given up his life He will restore and heal you Comfort, deliver you From sin, pain and bondage in your life You are his princess bride Accept his embrace, don’t hide And be all you’re destined to be You’re a daughter of Eve...
I want to know you deeper Jesus I want to know you intimately I want to know you deeper Jesus I want to know you Reveal Yourself to me As I seek Your face Reveal Yourself to me As I seek your heart Reveal Yourself to me As I seek your ways Reveal yourself to me As I love You
Arise O God 04:35
Shout to God All nations of the earth and worship Him The awesome One who rides upon the clouds Bow down before the mighty King of Israël and sing: “Holy are You Lord!” Holy! So Holy! (4x) Let Yah arise, let His enemies be scattered He’s a mighty God, He’s a mighty God (2x) Sing to the Lord, exalt His name Speak of His never ending fame Give Him your joyous, thundrous, explosive Shout of Praise!
Beyond the distant shores I hear the silent cry Of people torn apart by wars Starving children left to die Destitute in darkening fear Fathers pray their desperate prayers For the gods to finally hear And send someone who really cares Who will go where I would go? Who will feed their hungry souls? Chorus: Be still and know that I am God When darkness comes in like a flood Be still and know; find rest in me The Light eternal Child of God and child of men Will you hear me when I call Or will you close your eyes again And let my words on deaf ears fall You are called to be like me To bring to life the barren lands Destined for eternity So be my hope, be my hands Will you be who I will be Will you set the captives free
Before the world began God foresaw the loss of many lives He reached out His hands Through time and Christ to save humankind He cries out for His own people Ev’ry beat speaks of His restless heart That will never, ever give up hope Until He finds the objects of His Love You and me Chorus: Our God is a consuming fire Our God’s love is a consuming fire So would you not hear His voice calling you every day Won’t you draw near through time and Christ For all eternity He wants to keep and to hold you Cleanse and heal you, fill you with His light He will never, ever give up hope Until He sees His son’s spotless bride You and Me (Chorus) He paid the price for us all For the great and the small He will not share, not at all His Love with anyone else (Chorus)
Psalm 06:03
Ik verhoog de Koning van 't heelal Ik eer Zijn naam mijn leven lang Hij die mijn ziel volmaakt behouden zal Ik vrees geen dood, ben niet meer bang Mijn leven is volledig in Zijn hand En niemand rooft mij daar vandaan Niets kan mij scheiden van Zijn liefde want In 't boek des levens staat mijn naam De Heer is trouw en vol bewogenheid Genadig, liefdevol en goed Ik kan niet zonder Zijn aanwezigheid Ik hunker naar Zijn liefdesgloed Hij geeft mij kracht om steeds weer door te gaan In stormen, twijfels en verdriet Zijn plan, Zijn weg voor mij, ik kan het aan Omdat Hij telkens uitkomst biedt Yeshua, Zoon van God, gezalfde Heer ik juich, ik roep El Elohim Kom Bruidegom, ja keer toch spoedig weer 'k verlang Uw aangezicht te zien Ik ben van mijn geliefde en Hij is van mij zoals geschreven staat Dat Hij mijn tranen in de Hemel wist Zijn liefde nimmer mij verlaat


What other people say about this album:

"Haute Cuisine for ears and spirit!"

"Your music makes my spirit soar!!!"

"I have a pre-release album and WOW!! It is like a breath of fresh air! Beautiful lyrics, vocals and an amazing assortment of musical styles. The music and the way it is put together is layers upon layers of dazzling sound. Frank's song LOVE was startling to me...the more I listened the more layers of intriguing sound I heard. I love Marlous's song We Belong to the Day...it will lift you right up. As you can tell, I heartily recommend this album to worshipers looking for a change of pace from standard Contemporary Christian pop/rock sound."

"It’s the ultimate kind of happines to know that we belong to the day, we belong to the Light, we belong to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever .... Thank you for putting this ultimate emotion into music, it goes straight into my heart ...! Thank you God for giving Frank and Marlou this talent!"

"We Belong to the Day is THE most amazing CD I have heard in a LONG TIME! And it grows, and g-r-o-w-s and G-R-O-W-S in its power, beauty, intimacy, and ability to bring one to tears with each listen! Will be ordering more copies as gifts soon!"
The disc that is in your hands now is a result of years of writing, rewriting and recording. It is very much a testament of our journey of faith, in worship, through difficult times and glorious ones. Most of the songs were born out of times of worship, where we spontaneously started to sing out our hearts to God.

Our music is as colourful and diverse as is the nature of God Himself, although it cannot even begin to match His greatness. It is our celebration of the freedom that He gives through the finished work of the cross, through Jesus Christ. A freedom that allows us to really live in and through Him, set free from the cages of our old nature and man-made religion.

It is our greatest desire that, while you are listening to our music, you will experience a deeper freedom in Christ and be able to draw closer to Him. We no longer let darkness rule over us, because we belong to the Day, we belong to the Light!
