Dan Damon : NJALO (Always) : Mixed 5-8 Parts : 01 Songbook & 1 CD : 9780687498079

Dan Damon : NJALO (Always)

"Njalo" is a 16 song glimpse into the world of Christianity as it presently exists in the African tradition. The production of this book was a cross-cultural collaboration between Patrick Matsikenyiri, a Zimbabwan missionary and Dan Damon, who provided very singable, English translations of these songs. Together, they created a volume with a variety of worship expressions, including songs of praise ("Baningyeti Bayawe"), thanksgiving ("Wonai"), invocation ("Mweya Mutsvene Uyai Pano"), and commitment ("Ndai Wona Hama Yakanaka"). These songs also bear the brokeness of Zimbabwean society where so many people live under the burdens of political oppression, economical turmoil, family brokeness, and the scourge of HIV/AIDS. See especially "Zviro Zvacho Zvanyanya." Includes CD.

Songlist: Always, God, We Thank You, If The Lord Would Appear Before Me, He Is There Forever, Let Us Praise The Lord Our God, There's No One In The World Like Jesus, If I'm Without Love, This Is Not Our Homeland, Holy Spirit Come By Here, Shepard God To You We Pray, I Have A Good Friend, It's Jesus, The Light Of God Comes, Those Who Wait Upon The Lord, Behold, Life Is Broken At It's Core
