Five Loaves and Two Fishes

Finally got my hands of a copy of "Beautiful Seed" today at CD-RAMA for $18.95 SGD. Yippee!
Perhaps I should wear one of my favourite T-shirt to remind myself of the lil’ weekend happiness.

Now playing on my blog site: Five Loaves and Two Fishes (Corrinne May)
A little boy of thirteen was on his way to school
He heard a crowd of people laughing and he went to take a look
Thousands were listening to the stories of one man
He spoke with such wisdom, even the kids could understand
The hours passed so quickly, the day turned into night

Everyone was hungry but there was no food in sight
The boy looked in his lunchbox, at the little that he had
He wasn't sure what good it'd do, there were thousands to be fed
But he saw the twinkling eyes of Jesus, the kindness in His smile

And the boy cried out with the trust of a child, he said:
"Take my five loaves and two fishes
Do with it as You will
I surrender
Take my fears, my inhibitions
All my burdens, my ambitions
You can use it all
To feed them all."

I often think about that boy when I'm feeling small
And I worry that the work I do means nothing at all
But every single tear I cry is a diamond in His hands
And every door that slams in my face, I will offer up in prayer
So I'll give You every breath that I have
Oh Lord, You can work miracles
All You need is my "Amen"

So, take my five loaves and two fishes
Do with it as You will
I surrender
Take my fears, my inhibitions
All my burdens, my ambitions
You can use it all
I hope it's not too small

I trust in You, I trust in You

So take my five loaves and two fishes
Do with it as You will
I surrender
Take my fears, my inhibitions
All my burdens, my ambitions
You can use it all
No gift is too small

Corrinne May has a very unique voice and a voice to die for. Thanks for sharing. I don't normally listen to Christian songs. But this one is nice :)

Good to hear about the 7th Sept release. I just checked amazon.com for her album, and it's like US$35 as a Singaporean import:p. I think I'll get it when it's released here:). Thanks for the great recommendation!
