We have done this once in Church, but we have talked about this interesting Asian (Chinese) sounding worship song, especially at the bridge.

Check it out where Israel Houghton teaches the song at Hillsong Conference this year. Its a powerful song declaring JESUS being the CENTRE of our lives!

Enjoy this worship song :)

christine says:

The first time i heard Jesus be the center was at my church conference (Jabula Ministries) where Israel sang it to us for the first time in Zimbabwe this year in August.I was overwhelmed, just having to allow God to be the center of my life and everything.I felt the Lord’s presence as everyone in the auditorium submitted and allowed God to be in his place.This is a very powerful song.I thank God for giving us instruments of blessings like Israel who writes such powerful songs that brings us so much closer to him.Keep it up Israel.

Praise you in this song.

That’s amazing! tks for sharing with us Irene!

This is a Powerful song and when we sing it wholeheartedly …. the revelation that GOD is in the CENTRE of everything we are in, CENTRE of our family, CENTRE of our job … GOD just holds everything together!

Irene says:

I was brought to tears (not unusual for me) listening to this simple but beautiful Song of Praise, especially loved Sidney’s version. I would love to be able to sing these songs without crying!!!! but I can’t. Just stay quiet, listening, trying to control my emotions …….since a small girl songs of praise, hymns, psalms etc etc have always made me cry. Even talking about it I become teary. You would think that by now, age 64, I would have been able to master my emotions – unfortunately I have not. Thank you for bringing Church, worship to me through the net, as I travel a lot, it is often the only way I get to participate in group worship. I constantly thank God every day, for my life, but alone, in normal conversation between God and me. I must admit, although I Love Jesus, for he sacrificed his life for me, I tend to pray to God, my creator. Whether Jesus was the son or the messenger of God, is by the by, I really don’t know for sure, but he did give his life for us, so without a doubt, he deserves worship as much as God does.
