All the Areas of Life (Todas As Áreas Da Vida)

I just have to post this marvellous performance of a song written by Marcello Oliveira Ferreira. He sang this after the conclusion of an online course on Abraham Kuyper's thought in Brazil, and it is worth passing along.


Here is my rough translation from Portuguese:


EVERY AREA OF LIFE

All art is for your glory,
Aesthetics and beauty,
Colours, forms, and poetry,
Everything is for you.
Science is for your glory
Knowledge and research
Because in nature we see your face.

Every area of life honours you.
You are Lord, and I will surrender myself to give you praise.
You are Lord, and I will surrender myself to give you praise.

There is no place in the domain of the universe
In which Christ does not say: "This is all mine!"
To live is for your glory,
In rest and routine,
In what we eat and what we drink
And in family.

Every area of life honours you.
You are Lord, and I will surrender myself to give you praise.
You are Lord, and I will surrender myself to give you praise,
to give you praise, to give you praise.

Marcelo Oliveira Ferreira
