FLYING

Lethbridge, AB, May 1984

Since the beginning of man, he has wanted to fly. Many of us have had sleep dreams of flying by faith, powered by believing we can be airborne.

And so it is! We CAN fly, or at least are meant to do so, in a way physical flying can’t compare. God gives us that power in our relationship with Him whereby our spirits soar.

While this song was written in 1984, it didn’t begin to be fulfilled until after the Great Fast our community had in 2014. Many people were taken away and the music production got going in earnest after Paul Cohen left in September 2017.

Music & Lyrics by Victor N. Hafichuk

Flying…
For the first time I am flying!
It’s what I’ve always dreamed of…

Freedom…
What I’ve always longed for!
Now I really have it…

Airborne…
A worm I am in blossom!
Mounting like a pretty
Flutterby, away up high

Up in the sky…
I am now an eagle
In the heights of Heaven
I can soar forever and ever and a day

Away, away…
Flying…
Finally I’m flying…
Yes, I am flying.

(Song repeats after a solo instrumental)

Voler

Paroles et musique par Victor N. Hafichuk

Voler…
Pour la première fois, je vole !
C’est ce dont j’ai toujours rêvé…

Liberté…
Ce que j’ai toujours désiré !
Maintenant je l’ai vraiment…

Suspendu dans les airs…
Un ver, je suis en fleur !
Montant comme un beau
Flutterby, au loin très haut

Haut dans le ciel…
Maintenant je suis un aigle
Sur les hauteurs des Cieux
Je peux survoler pour toujours et toujours et un jour

Au loin, au loin…
Voler…
Enfin je vole…
Oui, je vole…

(La chanson est répétée après un instrumental en solo)

Voando…
Pela primeira vez, estou voando!
É o que eu sempre sonhei…

Liberdade…
O que eu sempre desejei
Agora, eu realmente a tenho…

Em vôo…
Uma larva eu sou no florescer
Preparando-me para ser uma linda
Flutterby, e voar bem alto

Lá no céu…
Agora sou uma águia
No alto dos Céus
Posso voar para sempre e sempre e mais um dia

Longe, longe…
Voando…
Finalmente estou voando…
Sim, estou voando.

(Música repete depois de um solo instrumental)

Love this song Victor. Not equally as much as I Want You To Know but beautiful in its own way. The scenery with this video is great. The unique way God sends these words to you in song is something very special. I have never heard anything quite like it. You really do have a gift for expressing yourself. I know without a doubt IT comes from God.

Thank you for bringing to us yet another special song.
