Can’t Give Up Now


Sur mengikuti kebaktian di GIII di Tokyo jam 10.15 sampai 13.30 panjang juga karena ternyata ada 3 kesaksian dan dilayankan Perjamuan Kudus. Vera adalah salah satu yang memberikan kesaksian tentang 2 kegagalan yang ia alami dalam usahanya masuk universitas-universitas di Tokyo dan harus pulang ke Indonesia. Ketika ia tahu tentang kegagalan yang kedua, awalnya ia menangis seharian dan putus asa. Ia sangat kuatir dengan reaksi keluarganya, tetapi ternyata Tuhan sudah mengatur semuanya. Dalam kontak telpon dengan mamanya bilang ada Rancangan Tuhan (Yer 29:11) yang lebih baik telah tersedia di Indonesia (cuman ia tidak melanjutkan kesaksiannya karena keterbatasan waktu). Kemudian Vera bersama 3 teman pemudinya menyanyikan lagu Can’t Give Up Now.

Sungguh luar biasa teks lagunya, sangat menguatkan hati semua yang hadir. Sungguh penyertaan Tuhan itu senantiasa bersama kita (Yos 1:5) dan Ia tidak pernah terlambat dalam pertolonganNya. Saya meminta teks lagunya dari Vera untuk Sur bagikan di sini.

Can’t Give Up Now

There will be mountains that I will have to climb
And there will be battles that I will have to fight
But victory or defeat, it’s up to me to decide
But how can I expect to win If I never try.

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me

Never said there wouldn’t be trials
Never said I wouldn’t fall
Never said that everything would go the way I want it to go

But when my back is against the wall
And I feel all hope is gone,
I’ll just lift my head up to the sky
And say help me to be strong

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me

Hook:
No, You didn’t bring me out here to leave me lonely
Even when I can’t see clearly
I know that You are with me (so I can’t)

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me
