Dawn to Shine

Once upon a February 17, 2015, I woke up very early and went for a jog with my Sony Camcorder and decided to take pictures on my way back home somewhere in Shomolu Bariga, Lagos. The road was in repair at the time.

I got on camera how the day broke with Lagosians waking up to their daily activity.

I began clicking the camera from 6:35am. But i had to filter these first set to see some of the details.

I caught the first set of people already bathed and set out for the day before sunrise, at 6:59am. This is how Lagos life is, a daily hustle and bustle. It’s no place for a lazy person.

Below, a lot of the people were good sports posing for the camera, some wanted to be caught in it, and one man washing meat for a buka [local restaurant] didn’t. See the story in the pictures.

Let Me Be A Little More Music Video

Lyrics:

Glen Campbell, 1968

Let me be a little kinder
close my eyes a little more
to the fault of those around me – by 3 friends to sad girl
Let me praise a little more [2ce]
Let me be, when I am weary
Less concerned about myself,
Let me serve a little better – by sad girl attending to the poor
All my brothers in the Lord.
Let me praise a little more
Let me be a little meeker
With all those who are weaker,
Let me think more of my neighbour –    by the 4 as they attend to the poor. Boys sing
And a little less of me unison and girls sing descant
Let me praise a little more.
Orchestra interlude
Let me toil without complaining
Never close my eyes to needs,
Let me face the summons calmly, – classic rendering with repeat of verse 1
Let me praise a little more [2ce].

Soldiers of Christ Music Video

Lyrics:

Soldiers of Christ, arise – Charles Wesley (1749)

  1. Soldiers of Christ, arise
    And put your armor on,
    Strong in the strength which God supplies
    Thro’ His eternal Son;
    Strong in the Lord of hosts
    And in His mighty power.
    Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
    Is more than conqueror.
  2. Stand then in His great might,
    With all His strength endued.
    And take, to arm you for the fight,
    The panoply of God.
    From strength to strength go on
    And wrestle, fight and pray;
    Tread all the powers of darkness down
    And win the well-fought day.
  3. Leave no unguarded place,
    No weakness of the soul;
    Take ev’ry virtue, ev’ry grace.
    And fortify the whole;
    That having all things done,
    And all your conflicts past,
    Ye may overcome thro’ Christ alone
    And stand complete at last.

St Dominic’s Orchestra’s Christmas of Love

We covered this event on the 3rd of December 2017. St. Dominic’s Catholic Church Orchestra had a concert tagged – Christmas of Love. It’s a young orchestra still trying to smoothen its rough edges. They’ve come a long way and not giving up. They are determined to get better. Please, enjoy the music.

Sons of God Music Video

This is a musical of a short film the kids and I shot sometime in 2015/16. The kids are bigger and bolder now, I must say.

The film is titled YOUNG MINISTERS and the episode from which this song is extracted is SONS OF GOD.

It is based on simple Christian teachings and the mission is to obey the great commission – to PROCLAIM THE GOOD NEWS of CHRIST.

I hope you enjoy it.

Please leave a comment.

Lyrics:

Sons Of God Lyrics // by James Thiem

Sons of God: Hear His Holy word,
Gather around the table of the Lord
Eat His Body, drink His Blood – by 3 of children to the one who asks question
And we’ll sing a song of love
Allelu, allelu, allelu, alleluia.

1- Brothers, sister we are one,
And our life has just begun,
In the spirit we are young, – by 1st Girl
We can live forever.

2- Shout together to the Lord [eh!]
Who has promised our reward,
Happiness a hundred fold – by 2nd Boy
And we’ll live forever.

Chorus – by the 4 children and a response of ‘eh!’ and all sing in unison

3- Jesus gave a new command:
That we love our fellow man,
Till we reach the promised land – by Girls
Where we’ll live forever.

4- If we want to live with Him,
We must also die with Him,
Die to selfishness and sin – by Boys
And we’ll live forever.

Chorus – joined by more children and all sing in harmony

5- Make the world a unity,
Make all men one family,
Till we meet The Trinity – by all in harmony
And we’ll live forever.

6- With the church we celebrate,
Jesus coming we await,
So we’ll make a holiday, – by all in unison
So we’ll live forever.

Chorus – by all in unison with ‘eh!’ and again in harmony till fade.

Come Holy Spirit Music Video

Lyrics:

COME HOLY SPIRIT

⦁ The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost,
He came to mighty fullness then;
His witness thru believers won the lost,
And multitudes were born again.
The early Christians scattered o’er the world,
They preached the Gospel fearlessly;
Tho’ some were martyred and to lions hurled,
They marched along in victory!

Chorus

Come, Holy Spirit,
Dark is the hour,
We need your filling,
Your love and your mighty pow’r
Move now among us,
Stir us, we pray.
Come, Holy Spirit,
Revive the church today!

⦁ Then in an age when darkness gripped the earth,
“The just shall live by faith” was learned;
The Holy Spirit gave the Church new birth
As reformation fires burned.
In later years the great revivals came,
When saints would seek the Lord and pray;
O, once again we need that holy flame
To meet the challenge of today!

Chorus

Guests In A Wedding

Milipadarose Pictures covered a wedding on November 24, 2018 and selected this interesting pictures:

First are the pretty decorations

Followed by some of the guests

Then some interesting poses we caught

But we particularly love this lady and her friends

We love these young souls. They bring fun and pump to the party – and to the camera.
