Lord’s Tracks

Live by Faith

2020.10.08

My life was in vain, and I lost my way.
He came into my life. He is Jesus.
He gave me hope to arise from a fallen seat.
The king of love, It’s You, Jesus.

 

Although I struggled to change my darkened life.
But, I’m still nothing without my Lord, Jesus.
He opened my eyes to see the light, the light of the world.
The friend of mine, It’s You, Jesus.

 

I pray for peace in Him not comfort.
Let me thrive from the Spirit not success.
Just want to live with love and joy Jesus brought.
May I boast in Jesus Christ alone through all my life.

 

I will hear Your words clear and loud.
Let me walk through my life in faith.
Just want to dwell in salvation of the cross.
May I be a vessel of blessing wherever I am.
But, my heart is always pure within Your ways.
Let me live by faith.
Let me live by faith.

 

Although I struggled to change my darkened life.
But, I’m still nothing without my Lord, Jesus.
He opened my eyes to see the light, the light of the world.
The friend of mine, It’s You, Jesus.

 

I pray for peace in Him not comfort.
Let me thrive from the Spirit not success.
Just want to live with love and joy Jesus brought.
May I boast in Jesus Christ alone through all my life.

 

I will hear Your words clear and loud.
Let me walk through my life in faith.
Just want to dwell in salvation of the cross.
Though I might be foolish in the eyes of the world.
Let me live by faith.
But, my heart is always pure within Your ways.
Let me live by faith.
Let me live by faith.
Let me live by faith.

“Lord’s Tracks” is a praise project led by singer-songwriter Joohn and pianist Wonil Gwak.

 

“He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.”

 

As the words of this bible phrase explains (Psalms 40:3), their music is reflecting the current era.
Through the voices of praise ministers of the next generation, we hope the new gospel to be spread throughout the world.
The lyrics are poetic, touching melodies and harmonies itself have musical value.
It will be an art of enlightenment and empathy not only for Christians but also for those who do not believe in God.

 

“Heeeun”, who participated as a singer, has majored in jazz piano and music education at the University of British Columbia and Capilano University in Canada.
In Canada and the U.S., She participated as a concert session for many artists including Bumsoo Kim and The One, and won prizes at various vocal competitions.
In 2018, after winning the Top 10 of the Gospelstar C, one of the most famous Christian music festivals in Korea, she has continued her praise work in Korea.
Recently, the female duo “Joy Avenue” was formed to praise and convey the love of God.

 

Co-lyricist “Jack Yang”

 

He is a person who wants to be called as a believer of Jesus, not just someone assigned a position in Church.

 

Also, he is a man who has sincere faith in loving God, following Jesus and living with Holy Spirit in daily life.

 

He tries to have a meaningful every day life with a mission he was given through his spiritual gift.
He loves music and playing the drums. He also plays the guitar and leads worship.

 

Studying in theology at Whitley College in Australia, he planted a church, named “Good-Church” in Melbourne, to take care of the young adult and counsel some students came from Korea.

 

After he came back to Korea, he settled in “Good Teacher English Institution” in Pohang.
He continues teaching English to young people and help them with their future paths. In addition, he is still working in church as a minister for high school students.

 

He shares his thoughts and bible sharing through his YouTube “The Bible-noon of Jack”.
He can take part in Joohn’s work through that.

 

‘주님의 흔적’은 싱어송라이터 ‘주흔’과 피아니스트 ‘곽원일’이 이끄는 찬양 프로젝트이다.
‘새 노래 곧 우리 하나님께 올릴 찬송을 내 입에 두셨으니 많은 사람이 보고 두려워하여 여호와를 의지하리로다’
이들이 받은 약속의 말씀(시편 40장 3절)대로 이들의 음악들은 하나같이 이 시대를 관찰하고 있다.
차세대 찬양사역자들의 목소리와 함께 새로운 가스펠의 흐름을 이어가고자 한다.
기독교 세계관으로 만들어진 노랫말들은 시가 되고 감동적인 멜로디와 화성은 그 자체로도 음악적 가치를 가지며
크리스천들에게뿐만 아니라 믿지 않는 자들에게도 깨달음과 공감을 주는 예술이 될 것이다.

 

노래로 참여한 김희은은 캐나다 University of British Columbia 와 Capilano University에서 재즈피아노와 음악교육을 전공하였다.
캐나다와 미국에서 다양한 찬양사역 및 김범수, 더원 등 많은 아티스트의 콘서트 세션으로 활동했으며 여러 보컬 대회를 통해 입상하였다.
2018년에는 가스펠스타C 탑10으로 입상한 것을 계기로 한국에서도 찬양 사역을 이어갔으며
최근엔 여성듀오 ‘Joy Avenue(조이애비뉴)’를 결성하여 하나님의 사랑을 찬양하며 전하고 있다.

 

공동작사자 소개
양종길 (Jack Yang)

 

하나님을 사랑하고, 예수를 닮아가며, 성령과 동행하는 삶이 중요하다고 믿으며,
교회의 직함이 아니라 예수 믿는 사람으로 불리고 싶은 사람..

 

‘색깔 있는 성령의 사람’이라는 목회 철학을 가지고 일상에서의 사역과 영성을 강조하며 오늘을 산다.

 

음악을 좋아하지만, 악보를 보지 못해서 선택한 악기가 드럼과 기타이다.
교회 찬양단에서 드러머로 사역했고 기타 연주와 함께 예배를 인도하는 찬양사역자이기도 하다.

 

호주 멜번의 ‘Divinity of Uinversity’의 ‘Whitley College’에서 신학을 전공하고
‘좋은교회(Good-Church)’를 개척하여 목회와 기독교 대안학교 사역을 병행했다.

 

한국에 귀국 후, 세상 속에서 또 다른 ‘교회’의 형태를 고민하며
현재 포항에서 ‘굿티쳐 어학원’을 설립하여 ‘영어 살리기’를 위해 가르치며,
10대들의 삶에 관심을 갖고 젊은이들을 세우기 위한 만남을 위해 강의하고 상담하고 있다.

 

주일에는 ‘포항성결교회’ 고등부 전도사로 말씀 사역과, 캄보디아 이주민 예배를 인도하고 있다.

 

유튜브 ‘짹도사의 바이블눈’이란 채널을 통해 일상에서의 은혜를 나누고 있으며,
그로 인해 연결된 주흔의 작업에 동참하게 되었다.
