Final Call before the camps

As I mentioned in my previous posts that the camps season is near and now it is even nearer. Today we did our final rehearsal for the first camp (that is YPE camp at Bhilai). We had all type of programs like elocution, songs, stories, instrumental music for all groups. Our job was to fine tune it before the final show. Here are some pics

For one of the main event (that is Group song) we initially selected “Sing for joy to God our strength” by Don Moen.

Sing for joy to God our strength
Sing for joy to God our strength, our strength

If we call to Him, He will answer us
If we run to Him, He will run to us
If we lift our hands, He will lift us up
Come now praise his name, all you saints of God.

Draw near to Him, he is here with us
Give Him your love, Hes in love with us
He will heal our hearts,
He will cleanse our hands
If we rend our hearts He will heal our land.

After few practices we decided to move to another song. We choosed few Hindi songs like “Hatho me Hath”. Finally we decided on another Don Moen Song, “thank you Lord”

Video samples of the orginal song RM format or WMA format or MP3 format

Lyrics goes like this

I come before you today
And there’s just one thing that I want to say
Thank you Lord,Thank you Lord

For all you’ve given to me
For all the blessings I can not see
Thank you Lord,Thank you Lord

With a greatful heart, with a song of praise
with an outstreched arm, I will bless your name

Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord

For all you’ve done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me your light
Thank you Lord,Thank you Lord

You took my sin and my shame,
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank you Lord,Thank you Lord

With a greatful heart, with a song of praise
with an outstreched arm, I will bless your name

Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord

Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord

KEY CHANGE
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord

Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord,I just want to thank you Lord
Thank you Lord

It is great fun and learning. There are other pics and I will be uploading it tommorow. Keep watching.

  1. Hoping it to be in some remote place. At Vizag we had it in a little remote place 🙂 but at Rourkela we had in a hotel :(. Sleeping in railway station at night to catch train and sometimes sleeping within limited space, 10s of people in our room without a pillow. Lining up for the morning call in front of the only available one room. Away for work but not away from competition :), waiting for Sunday 2 pm when we will board the train from Howrah (some 30 to 40 of us). Have fun

  2. I wish every one of you all the best. Hope you people are successful with your objectives. Keep trying; success is never too far away. The harder you try for it, you get the results quicker. It just seems to be at an arm length away for those who want to achieve their goals.

  3. We are back with the trophy, I will upload the pics on sunday. 4 times in a row, this time it was very close 66 points for our church and 62 points for runners up (host, Bhelai). It was good experience again.

  4. Yesterday night i & my dad saw the practice pictures that you posted on your blog .Really very happy to see the pictures as they are of very good quality too. And i hope you have you have no problems if i share your blog address to my friends & close relatives
