On the same day, a dedication program for the new world headquarters in Warwick and for the Wallkill expansion" was also held. It was attended by thousands of brothers and sisters including those in the live streaming and delayed broadcast.

Now many of us are wondering about those new things that has been discussed. Remember our list of speculations? Some of them doesn't get even close. :P

But here are some of the new and exciting things announced from the program:
  • 2018 Yeartext: “Those hoping in Jehovah will regain power.” —Isaiah 40:31
  • Starting in January 2018, there will be only three (3) public edition of The Watchtower and three (3) Awake! magazine per year. Each edition will focus on one main subject.

  • Yearbook printing will be discontinued. All reports will be dispensed using the JW.org and JW Broadcasting website.
  • Emphasis should be on bringing in those righteously disposed and not on just placing literature.
  • Clearer understanding of the "Spiritual Temple" and "Spiritual Paradise."

Look at Me Lyrics - JW Broadcasting October 2017

During the beautiful and touching October 2017 broadcast of JW Broadcasting, brother Harold Corkern, (a helper to the Governing Body) introduced a new song. Brother Corkern did not state the exact title of the song before it was played. But after listening to it, you can conclude that if it's not "Put Down the Phone and Look at Me" then it's just "Look at Me." Let's just wait for the official title on TV.JW.org website. However, below is the lyrics to the song:


Look at Me Lyrics
JW Broadcasting - October 2017

Think—think outside the box.
Be someone who talks.
Don't waste away behind that tiny screen
'Cause you know that there's much more to life
Than friend requests and likes.
Think of all the things we haven't seen.

Well, you—
You'll never see them if you're focused on the superficial.
You need real friends, if you know what I mean.

Look at me,
Can you see
What I see?
Around the world, this happy family.
Look at me.
Do you know
What I know?
That you belong.
Put down the phone, and look at me.

Take—take the time to see.
See what others see.
Don't trade that plastic box for all your friends.
You can make friends you know are true,
Who love Jehovah too,
Who'll stand right by your side until the end.

But you—
You'll never meet them if you're focused on the superficial.
You need real friends, if you know what I mean.

Look at me,
Can you see
What I see?
Around the world, this happy family.
Look at me.
Do you know
What I know?
That you belong.
Put down the phone, and look at me.

Put down the phone, and look at me.

Don't let it play you for a fool.
What you're getting could be fact or could be fiction.
Life in the cloud can be so cruel.
Why don't you come back down to earth,
converse, and reverse the addiction?

Put—put down your device
'Cause if you don't think twice,
The best in life will surely pass you by.
Look, listen, taste, and touch—
The things we love so much
Have been here all along.
All you need to do is
Realize what's in your hand is only superficial.
You've got real friends, if you know what I mean.

Look at me,
Can you see
What I see?
Around the world, this happy family.
Look at me.
Do you know
What I know?
That you belong.
Put down the phone, and look at me.

Can you see
What I see?
Around the world, this happy family.
Look at me.
Do you know
What I know?
That you belong.
Put down the phone, and look at me.

A Place That Will Bring You Praise Music Lyrics - 2017 JW Annual Meeting Original Song

As stated before on this post, the 2017 Annual Meeting of Jehovah's Witnesses will be held on October 2017. On that day, the dedication of the new World Headquarters in Warwick, New York will be dedicated. It was announced that a new song will be used in the event. It was entitled A Place That Will Bring You Praise. Below is the lyrics to the song:

A Place That Will Bring You Praise Lyrics
JW Broadcasting - September 2017

Jehovah, the Maker of heaven,
By heaven you can’t be contained,
Even less an earthly dwelling place.
But your spirit can here remain.
Adorning this center of worship
Are people who walk in your light.
We rejoice to serve in unity;
Our devotion is your delight.

There is nothing we have
That you haven’t provided.
From your own have, we’ve given
All that we offer you.

For all you have done, we are grateful;
Our voices in song we now raise.
For you’ve made our hope reality
With this place that will bring you praise.

Jehovah, you knew that we wanted
A place that will bring to you praise
And will serve the needs of worshippers,
Helping others to walk your ways.

And now may this place serve your purpose.
There’s work needing yet to be done,
To pick up the pace and carry on
In the work given by your Son.

So we offer the best
Of our time and possessions.
You alone are deserving–
Giver of all good things.

For all you have done, we are grateful;
Our voices in song we now raise.
For you’ve made our hope reality
With this place that will bring you praise.

To help you became familiar with this song, two videos will be released on JW.org and JW Broadcasting website. Visit these sites to download a copy of those videos.

Kumilos Na (Let's Take the Leap) Tagalog Lyrics - JW Broadcasting September 2017

"Kumilos Na!" is "Let's Take the Leap" in Tagalog. But the Tagalog phrase "kumilos na" can also be translated as "move now!". That's the title of the music video at the JW Broadcasting broadcast of September 2017. It's about increasing our trust in Jehovah by serving full-time. Below is the lyrics to the song:

Kumilos Na Tagalog Lyrics - JW Broadcasting September 2017

Kumilos Na! Lyrics
JW Broadcasting September 2017

B'ong panahon na maglingkod.
Tunguhin natin 'to sa 'ting puso.
Kung di ngayon o kailan pa?
'Wag nating sayangin ang panahon.

Kumilos na, 'wag mangamba.
'Wag mag-alinlangan, 'wag magduda.
Manalig lang, 'wag lumingon, sumulong.
Laging tingnan, pagpapala.

Alam lahat ni Jehova.
Kanyang ilalaan ang kailangan.
Tingin mo ba'y di mo kaya?
Magtiwala sa Diyos, kumilos na.

Kumilos na, 'wag mangamba.
'Wag mag-alinlangan, 'wag magduda.
Manalig lang, 'wag lumingon, sumulong.
Laging tingnan, pagpapala.

Pumasok na sa pintuan,
Ibubuhos ng Diyos pagpapala.
Di lang ngayon tayo ay may pag-asa
Ang buhay na walang hanggan.

Kumilos na, 'wag mangamba.
'Wag mag-alinlangan, 'wag magduda.
Manalig lang, 'wag lumingon, sumulong na.
Laging tignan, pagpapala.

Kumilos na, 'wag mangamba.
'Wag mag-alinlangan, 'wag magduda.
Manalig lang, 'wag lumingon, sumulong na.
Laging tingnan, pagpapala.

Kumilos na.
