I am leading a mission team to Haiti (this will be our 3rd trip). I would love for the team to try to learn a Christian song in Creole. I have tried to find a song with both English and Creole Lyrics AND with something to listen to in Creole with no luck. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you. Melissa

Youtube is the best place to look for that.  I guess knowing the title of these songs in Creole would help too :).  Here is a link to a few of them.  Some of them may have the Creole lyrics (written on the screen) too.  I hope that helps.

  1. Mandaly, I was looking through these youtube videos of the praise and worship songs you posted. I am trying to learn "Here I am to Worship", but I can't seem to figure out the lyrics that are on the bezalel video. You posted lyrics to the same song in a different post, but they don't match the youtube video. Would you be able to tell me the lyrics that go with the youtube that you posted?
    Thanks so much!

    1. Yes. Those lyrics do not match the youtube video that the people from the bezalel movement are singing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1kl7rQWQ64

    2. Yes, There is a little difference in the lyrics.
      The first word, fourth line, he seems to say "Ou te", but that wouldn't make sense.
      Anyway, there it is :)

      Limyè mond lan
      Ki te vini nan fènwa
      Ouvri zye mwen pou m ka wè
      Otè ki fè kè m adore ou
      Espwa lavi’m bò kote w

      Mwen vin adore ou
      Mwen vin met ajenou
      Mwen vin di w ke se ou ki Bondye
      Ou merite tout lanmou
      Ou merite tout glwa
      Ou vrèman mèveye nan lavi m

      Wa pou tout tan, m’ap leve non ou byen wo
      Glwa ou ranpli tout tè a
      Ou te vini sou latè
      Ou te kreye
      M ba’w tout bagay ak lanmou

      M p’ap janm konnen konbyen l koute
      Lè’m wè peche m yo sou lakwa
