Alexandre Malaquais

I'm not quite sure I can even remember how I stumbled across this gentleman. He's portugese-speaking, from Brazil. But I heard this song once and I was hooked.

He was a guest performer on this song with Paulo Cesar Baruk, another Brazilian Christian artist. Watch this video of Alexandre here. Sense his passion for the Lord as he plays. I'm putting the lyrics of the song (Portugese) with a "rough translation" from Google translate, so you can appreciate the song and what it is the worshippers are so taken up with.

Also, see more info below the song lyrics. It's pretty popular and a lot of sax players find this so moving.

The Song.... "Dependo De Ti"

Paulo César Baruk

Louvar-Te é bem mais do que eu mereço
Adorar-Te é mais profundo do que eu pensei
Servir-Te é tudo o que eu espero
O que mais quero, é estar mais junto a Ti

Derramar perante Ti os meus anseios
A minha oferta nesta hora... é a verdade, sinceridade
E Te mostrar os meus pequenos sonhos
Ah Senhor, como eu dependo de Ti

Para me curar
Para me ensinar
O caminho que devo seguir
Podes me usar Senhor
Como Tu bem queres
Abro o meu coração

Ouh

Louvar-Te é bem mais do que eu mereço
Adorar-Te é mais profundo, do que eu pensei
Servir-Te é tudo o que eu espero
O que mais quero, é estar mais junto a Ti

The Song.... Lyrics in English

Dependo De Ti

Contagious

Lord I am nothing without you
Nothing matters in this life if you are not your lord jesus
I will try it my way and found that it was not so
If you are not your lord jesus I lose myself

I depend on you
Like the air I breathe your love is where I live
I depend on you
Like the sun in the morning is your light I rose
My livelihood and my hope is you
/ Lord Jesus /

Call me your voice and your presence is lighted to guide the
I walk
Mr jesus
I give you what I feel
My heart is beating
Just for you Lord Jesus is desert

I depend on you
Like the air I breathe your love is where I live
I depend on you
Like the sun in the morning is your light I rose
My livelihood and my hope is you
Lord Jesus is desert

I depend on you
Like the air I breathe your love is where I live
I depend on you
Like the sun in the morning is your light I rose
My livelihood and my hope is you
/ Lord Jesus /
Yeah!

There are LOTS of good recordings of this solo by others who find Alexandre equally motivating.

Check out this recording of this solo by Victor Aguiar Boquilha. Like I said, there are a lot of worship musicians who have found this solo as moving as I did.

Victor has a Youtube channel you might want to check out. God bless you Victor. Keep up the good work. Stay faithful! God will use your talents as you seek HIM.

Another instrumental version of this beautiful worship song.
