Dmitri’s Song

I’m foregoing my schedule for this post because I haven’t cried that hard listening to music in a long while. It’s a powerful song of a man with a huge heart for his Jesus.  If you’re struggling,  and your coming up against persecution, you’re not alone.  Take comfort that there is victory in Jesus.  Keeping singing, because Jesus is alive. ❤

Music that Speaks

Dmetri’s Song (Jesus is alive)

 

My name is Dmitri, I was born a Russian man
And I was a factory worker, until 1960 and
Started teaching the Bible, to my two little boys
And that’s where the journey began

Well our house became a church
And the Sunday School grew
Had a 150 before we knew it
But the KGB didn’t want God around
17 years they locked me up, a 1000 miles away

 

This is my heart song, and I will stand and sing

For I am a son of the living King

So when the fire comes I’ll be rejoicing

Even when I suffer I’ll be singing

OOOhh Jesus is alive

OOOhh Jesus is alive

 

Despite 1500 Prisoners, criminal to the core

Who’d laugh and curse and bang their cups
And try to drownd me out

Like clockwork every morning with the rising of the sun

I’d stand and raise my hands and sing my heart song up to God

 

This is my heart song, and I will stand and sing

For I am a son of the living King

So when the fire comes I’ll be rejoicing

Yeah, even when I suffer I’ll be singing

OOOhh Jesus is alive

OOOhh Jesus is alive

 

Believers Stand for what you believe

Faint not in adversity

If you are cursed for Jesus name

Don’t give up, no don’t give up

 

Well they tried to break me, but I wouldn’t give in

And as they came to drag me out for my execution

I heard a choir of angels, yeah murderers and thieves

Those 1,500 criminals had risen up for me

They raised their hands and sang the song my father taught me

The sweetest sound I ever heard, yeah I heard freedom ring.
