"Unos" means storm . Its translation cannot be sugar-coated. It stands for what it means. How does this sound to somebody who suffered devastation from the calamity it brings? It’s a natural phenomenon but the pain it causes may be difficult to measure. It may be as difficult as knowing how to comfort and identify the deeper needs of those who have felt its rage. Its terror even lingers in its aftermath. Seeing a dark cloudy sky or a single raindrop may provoke a trauma. A child’s sniveling might mean more than hunger pangs. Many may have seemed betrayed by the sunny days’ promise of a bright tomorrow. Now it’s life after a deathly blow.

We are still trying to find ways to aid typhoon Haiyan survivors on top of what’s tangible. Join us in this endeavor as our relief operations continue and rebuilding process may take long. Your prayers and kindness are a worthwhile cause. And may these songs somehow give us a glimpse of hope.

Proceeds will go to Jesus Reigns Ministries relief and medical operations for typhoon Haiyan. See more stories and footage at

Track Name: Metaphors of a Restless Heart
I’m a ship lost at sea/ Blown by the wind aimlessly/ By the racing waves and tides/ I’m worn and wry /
No shore in sight/ No place to hide
I’m a house broken down/ My cracks are deep / From roof to ground/ I’m wishing for a chance/
To fix my messy leaks/ I’m hurting much/ And yet I’m getting numb

I need Jesus, I need Jesus/ I need Jesus, oh Jesus

I’m a forgotten truck / Stuck in a rut/ None alive but stains and dust/
Stifled by these grimes and stubborn rust/ On busted wheels/ Oh, I’m crippled still
I’m a paper plane in a hurricane/ Flew too high/ In my last flight out/
In the haste came down crashing in disdain/ And ended up melting in the rain

All this time, my world relied on fleeting wealth and alibis/ And all just now my reveries subside
And all the fragments of my shattered heart is all that’s left I’m pricked picking up
Who can make me well? Who can make well?
In those days gone by/ Even then and now
Track Name: Strong
When the daylight breaks/ Reach for the sun/ And when the darkness wraps/ Set fire your heart
Wake those tired eyes/ Faith be your sight/ Let loose the strength of your soul tonight
Even when tomorrow seems so far/ Even when tomorrow seems so far

Hmmm, we must be strong/ Ummm, life must go on/ Ummm, I’m hanging on
Ummm, life must go on

Come now come/ Let’s come alive/ Who you are is all you need/ And what you have is just enough
‘Cause I can see a little spark in your eyes/ I can see a little spark in your eyes
Track Name: Unos
Sa mga gabi na may pasakit/ May hikbi ng panalangin/ Mga luha lang ang kapiling/
Sa mga gabing may pagkasawi/ Hangad pa rin ay magwagi/ Sa laban ay hindi magkukubli/
Sa pagbuhos ng ulan/ Sa bawat pighati

Sa unos ng buhay/ May matibay na sandigan/ Gumuho man ang paligid/
Ako’y Kanyang iaahon/ Sa haplos ng Kanyang palad/May lakas na mahahanap/
Lakip ay Kanyang pag-ibig/ Ito’y sapat sa habang panahon

Hangad ko ay kapayapaan/ Hangad ko ay makatawid/ Mula sa pait ng pagsubok
Hangad ko matagpuan/ Sapat na kalakasan/ Dito sa aking paghihintay

Lakip ay Kanyang pag-ibig/ Siya’y si Hesus sa habang panahon
Track Name: Everything's Changing
Everything’s Changing

Why do you have to take my breath away
When my breathing seems so helpless
So lifeless
Why stir my heart when it’s shaken by this mixed emotion
Got so many questions
But you made me well

You made me well
Burning now inside of me
Is something
Something I’ve found
Somewhere else
And somewhere I’ve found you
And everything’s changing

Slithering went the questions to my head
And you came along into my lonely world
Is this for real or is it just another thing I have to bear
But you look like what I’ve waited for
You look like what I’ve waited for

You made me well
Burning now inside of me
Is something
Something I’ve found
Somewhere here
And right here I’ve found you
And everything’s changing
