  • "The gifts we present to Jehovah God" and many others.
  • We also met 1911-born sister Lilian Barnes, an old witness from whom we can learn a lot from her loyalty and endurance.
  • This broadcast also showed us some of the works done at Wallkill, New York on how the organization produces Braille Bible for the blind.

All I Can Give Music Lyrics - JW Broadcasting April 2019

The April broadcast is a beautiful and encouraging. The host of the program introduced a new music video song entitled "All I Can Give". The song is Indian-inspired. You can hear the Indian melody using their traditional instruments.

This song is very catchy and well arranged. You can also try listening to this song's Tamil and Hindi version for complete Indian music experience. Below is the All I Can Give music lyrics:

All I Can Give Music Lyrics
JW Broadcasting April 2019


O heavenly Father, I want to give all I can give.
My desire is to please you and love you as long as I live.
I'll help those who listen to find in your Word what they need.
To preach and to teach is the way I can really succeed.

(PRE-CHORUS)
As I praise you, Jehovah, my faith's getting stronger each day.
I'll reflect on my dedication.
I'll walk in your way.

(CHORUS)
O heavenly Father, to you I give praise,
Determined to serve you in so many ways.
My heart is wide open as long as I live.
Jehovah, I'll love you and give you all I can give.

Whole-souled devotion and love for my brothers I'll show.
Volunteering to lay my part is the best way I know.
I'm happier when I am giving than when I receive,
When I'm taking the time to help others who may be in need.

(PRE-CHORUS)
As I praise you, Jehovah, my faith's getting stronger each day.
I'll reflect on my dedication.
I'll walk in your way.

(CHORUS)
O heavenly Father, to you I give praise,
Determined to serve you in so many ways.
My heart is wide open as long as I live.
Jehovah, I'll love you and give you all I can give.

(CHORUS)
O heavenly Father, to you I give praise,
Determined to serve you in so many ways.
My heart is wide open as long as I live.
Jehovah, I'll love you and give you all I can give.

With Jehovah, We Are One Music Lyrics - JW Broadcasting March 2019

With Jehovah, We Are One is an African-inspired music. The song was originally written in Lingala language, a major language in the African country Congo. The music is created using the local musical instrument. You can also hear at the background some voice that is common on some African tribe. For a great musical experience, listen to the song in the Lingala language. It is available at the JW Broadcasting website. Below is the With Jehovah, We Are One lyrics:

With Jehovah, We Are One Music Lyrics
JW Broadcasting March 2019


There’s trouble in the world, disunity.
No matter where we live, no harmony.
There are people suffering, fighting for change.
But among God’s people, we trust in his name.

(PRE-CHORUS)
So we must stick close to his Word
And remain no part of this world

(CHORUS)
With love in ev’ry little thing we do.
Show love as we spread the good news,
And feel the love of the brotherhood.
Though we stand out as diff’rent,
With Jehovah, we are one.

No matter where we go from sea to sea,
With God’s people, we find true family.
Yes, there are anxieties, but hope is real—⁠
A paradise to come. True peace is near.

(PRE-CHORUS)
So we keep trusting in his Word
And remain no part of this world

(CHORUS)
With love in ev’ry little thing we do.
Show love as we spread the good news,
And feel the love of the brotherhood.
Though we stand out as diff’rent,
With Jehovah, we are one.
We are one.

(PRE-CHORUS)
So let’s stay faithful and endure
And remain no part of this world

(CHORUS)
With love in ev’ry little thing we do.
Show love as we spread the good news,
And feel the love of the brotherhood.
Though we stand out as diff’rent,
With Jehovah,

(CHORUS)
We love in ev’ry little thing we do.
Show love as we spread the good news,
And feel the love of the brotherhood.
Though we stand out as diff’rent,
With Jehovah, we are one.

You Can Count on Me Music Lyrics - JW Broadcasting February 2019

During the February 2019 broadcast, the host of the program released a very touching new song entitled "You Can Count on Me". The music video tells the story of a family crossing country as a refugee. The family is warmly welcomed by a local family who helped them cope with their new situations. Later, the local family who helped them experienced a fire incident. The family also helped them cope the problem.

Let's all remember that Jehovah is always here for us. He can use our brotherhood to encourage us and to provide us with strength during times of distress. Below is the You Can Count on Me lyrics.

You Can Count on Me Music Lyrics
JW Broadcasting February 2019


(Verse 1)
Time and circumstance
Don't always work in our favor.
What might have been if we just had the chance
Is something we may never know.
But God looks down and sees;
He knows us better than we do.
He sees what we are and what more we could be.
It's all in the way that we go.

(Pre-Chorus)
He values all of us,
No matter what talent or gift we possess.
He wants each one of us
To be as caring as he is.

(Chorus)
So you're my friend 'cause you're always there
Through our ups and downs and through all we've shared.
And I'm there
When you need someone, when things are hard to bear.
I'll be the friend you need.
You can count on me.

(Verse 2)
We weep with those who weep,
Sharing the things that we're feeling.
But sometimes our tears may be all that can speak,
Expressing what words cannot say.

(Pre-Chorus)
Troubles can bring us down.
Jehovah can lift us and carry us through.
We all can do the same
And help each other as friends do.

(Chorus)
And you're my friend 'cause you're always there
Through our ups and downs and through all we've shared.
And I'm there
When you need someone, when things are hard to bear.
I'll be the friend you need.
You can count on me.

(Chorus)
And you're my friend 'cause you're always there
Through our ups and downs and through all we've shared.
And I'm there
When you need someone, when things are hard to bear.
I'll be the friend you need.
You can count on me.

JW Broadcasting - February 2019 Updates

Good day brothers and sisters! Welcome again to an update regarding our monthly broadcast on JW Broadcasting. Well this time, it's for the February 2019.

JW Broadcasting - February 2019

You may remember that we did not get a regular program for two consecutive months. December 2018 and January 2019 was 145th Gilead Graduation and Annual Meeting 2018, respectively. However, we saw encouraging talks, experiences and beautiful videos during those events. We just missed those encouraging original songs...

OK, just like our past posts, we will highlight things that happened (and released on JW.org) for the past month. Here are those:
  • Ten of our brothers' homes were destroyed during a devastating fire in Manaus City, Brazil. It's good to hear that there are no fatalities and our branch is caring for the needs of our brothers and sisters.
  • Our deaf brothers and sisters in Rwanda will now enjoy watching sign language videos in their own Rwandan Sign Language. The branch in Rwanda established a translation office that will translate spoken language to local sign language. These videos will also help publishers in preaching the good news to over 30,000 deaf and hard-of-hearing people in Rwanda.
  • We also got some updates on how a tropical depression named Usman wreck havoc on eastern part of the Philippines. No brothers and sisters were killed by it but 3 of our brothers' home and a Kingdom Hall was damaged. The branch provided temporary housing to our affected brothers.
  • In South Korea, the court fully acquits conscientious objectors for the first time in their history. This "not-guilty" verdicts will set as a pattern to have the same positive verdict to over 900 brothers who are still in prison due to their faith.
  • Our brothers and sisters in the Philippines were also very happy recently after receiving their revised version of the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures! The new Bible is now available in Pangasinan, Hiligaynon, Cebuano, Iloko, Waray-Waray and Tagalog.
Now back to the topic. What do you expect for the JW Broadcasting - February 2019? Who do you think will host the program? Is it a Governing Body member or a helper to them? What experiences will be featured? What will the music video (original song) be about? If there's one, we will post the song lyrics as soon as possible. How about the postcard (greetings), which congregation/country will we see? Let's see when it became available. 🤣

Lyrics Update: You Can Count on Me Music Lyrics - JW Broadcasting February 2019

To give you an insight, here are some images from the February 2019 broadcast:

JW Broadcasting - January 2019

Good day brothers and sisters! Welcome to our update regarding the 52th episode of JW Broadcasting. Can you imagine that? We will have 52 broadcasts of JW Broadcasting on January 2019. It means if you watch a program per week, it will take one year to complete them!

JW Broadcasting - January 2019 Updates

Before proceeding to update, let's talk about some things that happened in the past days:
  • For example, some of us may have attended one of our circuit assemblies for 2018-2019 (Be Bold! and Be Strong!); or maybe, some of you have attended both already. Did you enjoy the music prelude? On our assembly, we were surprised to hear these new music presentations. Friends are quietly sitting, feeling and enjoying the music. We all hope that they will make the music available for download in the near future.
  • Another thing, a new video featuring Caleb (Become Jehovah's Friend) entitled "Be Good in the Ministry" was released on JW.org. It teaches us 3 things. We need to prepare, choose the right clothing and act in a modest way whenever we are in the ministry.
  • Another video, entitled "Does God Accept All Forms of Worship?" was made available for all. The 4-minute video will answer questions like why are there so many conflicting beliefs, and how can we tell if our worship is acceptable to God?
  • There is also a news item about the sale of our last Brooklyn property - One York Street. A total of 37 Brooklyn proerties were sold since 2004. Since 2016, our new world headquarters is in Warwick, New York. [Read the full article.]
  • A dedicated page inside JW.org was also setup to help everyone in the downloading, installation and updating of Watchtower Library - a Bible research tool.
  • And many others. Be sure to visit JW.org and hit the blue See What's New link to see all recent updates.





Now, what can we expect from the JW Broadcasting - January 2019? Who do think will be the host? What encouraging experiences will we see? What countries will be featured? Do you think we will get a new song-music video?

Well, for this month, we may not see experiences and music video. The title might be "JW Broadcasting—January 2019: Annual Meeting 2018". Yes brothers and sisters, it will be the Annual Meeting 2018. Last time, it was announced that these spiritual events will be part of the JW Broadcasting. (January 2018's broadcast featured the Annual Meeting 2017.)

On the other hand, here are some images from the January 2019 broadcast:
