That wonderful name,
He saved me from shame,
Now I’m not the same,
There is no other name that saves.
Lord of all the earth,
who gives hope and health,
The source of my strength,
There is no other name heals.
My great companion,
Who gives dominion,
There is no other name that wins.
The most glorious King,
To His cross I cling,
greatest song to sing,
There is no any other name that reigns.
Come let us adore
humbly bow before
He reigns evermore,
There is no other name I praise.

O whirlwind, you steal our dearest dreams
and plunge them into surging streams…
I wonder why you give sweet-scary screams
when you are a thief with blurred beams.
O whirlwind, I hear your echoes or errors…
raging and ravaging, caressing threshing floors…
your wings of woes ring a bell on all doors.
I thought you would spare my rich neighbours.
O whirlwind, bring back the dazzling dawn…
give us at twilight the strength to yawn.
Restore the racy radiance of our luxury lawn..
You need not bury this broken brawn.
O whirlwind, why hide your wing of woes
and keep serene cities on their toes?
You turn the soil, skies and seas to our foes
whenever you wed the boisterous billows.
O whirlwind, we will not be tamed by your tide
we will preen in the pomp of passion and never hide…
we will stir up the stream of strength from inside
and fulfill our days with pleasure and pride…
I can’t promise to never leave you.
If I will ever have to leave, I will
leave handprints of happiness
on the helms of your heart
and footprints of true love
on the sands of your soul.
I will always love you.
