Andrew who?, you might say. Do you know a song "Complete" by Parachute Band some years ago? This song touched hearts of many Christians and brought Parachute Band on the main stage. I remember attending a local concert by Parachute Band and heard this song live sung by Andrew Ulugia and very much impressed by his music and electric guitar playing. 2 weeks ago, I led this song in our congregation and a couple of people approached me with their story for this song and shared their memories. I sensed that seeing "beyond my Calvery" has many different meaning for different people.
So I was thinking where is Andrew Ulugia now? My research did not go much further but only left with this song. I am very curious to see if he is still writing and singing. Andrew, if you are reading this, I thank you for the song and please let me know what you up to. I would love to hear any of your new songs.
Complete by Andrew Ulugia
Here I am oh God, I bring this sacrifice My open heart I offer up my life I look to You, Lord, Your love that never ends Restores me again
So I lift my eyes to You, Lord, In Your strength will I break through, Lord, Touch me now, let Your love fall down on me, I know Your love dispels all my fears, Through the storm I will hold on, Lord, And by faith I will walk on,Lord, Then I'll see beyond my Calvary one day, And I will be complete in You.
I look to You, Lord, Your love that never ends Restores me again
So I lift my eyes to You, Lord In Your strength will I break through, Lord, Touch me now, let Your love fall down on me, I know Your love dispels all my fears, Through the storm I will hold on, Lord, And by faith I will walk on,Lord, Then I'll see beyond my Calvary one day, And I will be complete in, I will be complete in I will be complete in You.
I want to introduce a song that has been working in my heart. Ben Cantelon is a worship leader for Soul Survivor in England. Love Came Down is easy to sing and people loves to sing because it builds up very nicely to the chorus with meaningful lyrics.
My favorite part is the chorus.
I've found a love greater than life itself I've found a hope stronger and nothing compares I once was lost, now I'm alive in You

Love Came Down Ben Cantelon
When I call on Your name, You answer When I fall, You are there by my side You delivered me out of darkness Now I stand in the hope of new life (x2)
[Pre-Chorus] By grace I'm free, You've rescued me All I am is Yours
[Chorus] I've found a love greater than life itself I've found a hope stronger and nothing compares I once was lost, now I'm alive in You
[Verse 2] You're my God and my firm foundation It is You whom I'll trust at all times I give glory and praise, adoration To my Saviour who's seated on high
[Bridge] Love came down and rescued me I thank You, I thank You I once was blind, but now I see I see You, I see You

Jesus You are mercy Jesus You are justice Jesus You are worthy That is what You are You died alone to save me You rose so You could raise me You did all this to make me A chosen child of God
Worthy is the Lamb that once was slain To receive all glory, power and praise For with Your blood You purchased us for God Jesus, You are worthy, that is what You are
[Bridge] Perfect sacrifice, crushed by God for for us Bearing in Your hurt all that I deserve Misjudged for my misdeeds, You suffered silently The only guiltless man in all of history
[Bridge 2] Justice and mercy Justice and mercy Justice and mercy Meet on the cross (x2)
In the latest Hillsong Live album, "This Is Our God", Mike Guglielmucci, originally from Planetshakers sings "Healer". He is a cancer patient and sings the song with an oxygen tank right next to him. It is very powerful song that God can heal and restore every area of our lives.
You hold my every moment You calm my raging seas You walk with me through fire And heal all my disease
I trust in You I trust in You
I believe You’re my Healer I believe You are all I need I believe You’re my Portion I believe You’re more than enough for me Jesus You’re all I need
My Healer, You’re my Healer
Nothing is impossible for You Nothing is impossible for You Nothing is impossible for You You hold my world in Your hands
