The Power to Unite (Lakas na Magbibigkis)

I happen to see this song as I was browing online and fell in love with it. Moreso, I even found the Tagalog version which I must say is a faithful translation. I even liked the vernacular better, perhaps being pinoy, and thinking in tagalog, my best description would be “Damang Dama”

I patiently tried to transcribed the lyrics (including the Filipino version) since I could not find any online.

There’s a desperation that exists in the world
A growing helplessness, we’re at a loss to solve
We yearn for peace, yet fight for selfish reasons
We search for meaning, but fooled by illusions
What went wrong?
Why does everyday seem to get worst
In the midst of doubt and temptation
God gives us the simple solution

Refrain:

Read the Bible
The Word of God will give you strength
To face the challenge of living
Read the Bible
Open it, feel it, understand it
It is the source of our hope
When life is too heavy to bear
When all seems lost and unclear
Read the Bible
and its message will wipe away your fear

Gather all the families of the world
and read with one voice
Let God’s words fill you with hope
and heal your divisions
Increase your faith
with the promise of salvation
Remove your doubts and heal the wounds

Repeat Refrain

Wake up, listen! See the world with new eyes
Walk in sunshine, wipe the sadness
Unite the colors of humankind
Peace is elusive
But with God we can achieve it
His words have the power
To unite the human race

Lakas na Magbibigkis

Kawalang pag-asa’y umiiral sa mundo
Sa paglala nito, tayo’y litung-lito
Kapayapaan, mithing pinaglalaban
HInanap natin, sa mali palang daan

Sa’n nagkamali
Ang ating hirap ay sumisidhi
Sa gitna ng pag aalinlangan
Binigay sa atin ng Diyos ang kasagutan

Refrain:

Nasa Bibliya
Ang Wika Nya’y mayrong lakas
Gabay sa hamon ng buhay
Basahin ang Biblya
Buksan mo, damhin, at unawain
Taglay nito’y pag-asa
Sa tuwing kaybigat ng dalhin
At di mo kayang sagutin
Nasa Biblya, ang mga papawi ng takot natin

Halina mga lipi ng mundo
Isang Tinig tayo
Hayaan ang Wika ng Diyos ang lunas sa hidwaan
Manalig ka sa pangakong kaligtasan
Huwag mangamba, pawiin na

Ulitin ang Refrain

Bangon, Gising! Masdan ang ganda ng buhay
Sa liwanag, bagong bukas
Buong mundo’y sa isang landas
Bawa’t pangarap, Sa Diyos may katuparan
Salita Niya’y lakas na magbibigkis sa’tin

Ulitin ang Refrain
