Olubukunola Tijani’s Playlist




I love music a lot and I believe it speaks to me in ways I can’t imagine. I enjoy music with deep lyrics that teach me and help me in different situations I find myself, I love music that help keep me in God’s presence and remind me of His never ending love for me and the essence of my purpose in life.
So many songs have touched my life but I’d love to share some that are currently on repeat for me and have also stayed with me for a long time now.

  • What a Beautiful name by Hillsong: This song reminds me always of the person who God is and what He means to me. Whenever I feel like worshiping God and remind myself of the things He has done for me I sing this in my head. God’s name is powerful, He’s been there even from the beginning of creation, The song says he’s the word made flesh, He’s name is powerful and will remain with me even till the end of time.
  • Letting Go by Steffany Gretzinger: I love Bethel music and Steffany Gretzinger is like a role model for me. The words of this song brings tears to my eyes always. Whenever I feel sad, scared or unsure of how my life is going or the things happening with me i listen to this. It reminds me to Let go and just Let God. Let go of everything bothering me or bringing me to tears and live it all to God to handle. The chorus says You remind me of things for forgotten, You unwind me till i’m totally undone and when your arms are around me, fear is no match for your love. Its a song of comfort, sometimes all we need is a hug from God telling us all will be well and indeed that’s all that matters.
  • Pieces by Amanda Cook: Its a tale of how God loves. His love is never ending, never fails, its not passive or insecure neither is it broken. It hangs on every word it says. Its pure and magical. Nothing compares to God’s love and always I’m delighted to be loved by God.
  • Heaven Knows by Hillsong: This is a soundtrack for a wonderful movie called The Shack. Its another comforting song of hope, faith, love and surrender to God in times of troubles cos we all go through that sometimes and all we need is a little faith.
  • The sun is Rising by Britt Nicole: An all time love for me. A wonderful song about belief in one’s self no matter the amount of failures you go through, Never giving up. A song about courage and hope. The’s nothing better than believing in yourself and what better song than this to help encourage you!

  • Jesus at the Center by Israel Houghton: When you have God at the center of your plans and you surrender all to Him, There is no way you’ll fail cos He knows our beginning and our end so every time I deviate and I don”t carry God along with my plans. I’m reminded by this song of the benefits of putting God first.
  • Perfect by Ed Sheeran: I absolutely adore Ed Sheeran and his talent for deep and reasonable lyrics. I love this song cos its an absolute definition of loving someone no matter how they are. Just accepting them for who they are and nothing more. A good song for two people truly in love Lol!
  • Maybe IDK by Jon Bellion: I’ve found a new love! His amazing voice and lyrics amazes me. This song just reminds me that we never have everything planned and its ok to not have everything planned but lets just take things one step at a time and leave the rest to God
  • Hand of God by Jon Bellion:  No matter what we go through, our lives are directed and guided by God.
  • We can Hurt Together by Sia:  No matter what you go through, always remember you are not alone. You have people who will always be there to smile with you, cry with you, laugh with you, Never judge you but always stick with you no matter what. You’re not alone. We were not created to walk alone. That’s what friends are for.

Ore’s Playlist May 2017

My playlist is long overdue, I couldn’t decide what songs to put on my list. I finally narrowed it down to these songs. I really love these songs I hope you enjoy them.

  • “I Told You” By Bemyoda: I have listened to this song on replay since Friday the 12th May. I really like the journey the lyrics take me on.  This is one of my best lines in the song. ‘’Don’t listen for strange hearts listen for mine, I will be the voice that tells you to fight for life, for freedom’’. This speaks to me in this season where I have a lot of decisions to make and so many opinions.


  • “Come As You Are” By Shane & Shane: I came across Shane & Shane; The Worship Initiative, Vol 12, by accident but if you are a believer in the fact that all things are connected, like I am, then I found it when I needed it the most. A line in the song sings ‘’Lay down your hurts, lay down your heart come as you are’’, this hit all the right spots with me, because of the hurt I carry around. I have sang it so many times and made it my prayer, to lay down my hurt and lay down my heart and just walk There are so many more lines of the song I love and I am sure they will bless you, so please take a few minutes to read though the lyrics below.

Come out of sadness
From wherever you’ve been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
There’s hope for the hopeless
And all those who’ve strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There’s rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t cure
So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
Lay down your hurt lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are
There’s joy for the morning
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are

       

  • “What a beautiful Name” by Hillsong: Hillsong released an EP of different versions of the song, which I listened to nonstop for a few days, each version is different from the last and each gives a new appreciation of the name of Jesus, how wonderful and powerful the name is. ‘’You didn’t want heaven without us, so father you brought heaven down’’ This line helps me shift focus from all my shortcoming, not beat myself up too much on days I forget to have my morning devotion and just focus on the fact that God wants me, that God wants all of us. I also love other lines in the songs, so please read though the lyrics below and let the name of Jesus come alive to you in a new way.
  • You were the Word at the beginning

    One With God the Lord Most High

    Your hidden glory in creation

    Now revealed in You our Christ

    What a beautiful Name it is

    What a beautiful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus Christ my King

    What a beautiful Name it is

    Nothing compares to this

    What a beautiful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    You didn’t want heaven without us

    So Jesus, You brought heaven down

    My sin was great, Your love was greater

    What could separate us now

    What a wonderful Name it is

    What a wonderful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus Christ my King

    What a wonderful Name it is

    Nothing compares to this

    What a wonderful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    What a wonderful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    How sweet is your name, Lord, how good You are

    Love to sing in the name of the Lord, love to sing for you all?

    Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You

    You silenced the boast, of sin and grave

    The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory

    For You are raised to life again

    You have no rival, You have no equal

    Now and forever, Our God reigns

    Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory

    Yours is the Name, above all names

    What a powerful Name it is

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus Christ my King

    What a powerful Name it is

    Nothing can stand against

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    You have no rival, You have no equal

    Now and forever, Our God reigns

    Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory

    Yours is the Name, above all names

    What a powerful Name it is

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus Christ my King

    What a powerful Name it is

    Nothing can stand against

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus

    What a powerful Name it is

    The Name of Jesus
