Ina Thei is about celebrating life because it is the gift of God.
Maker says that people often have the tendency to think that life with/in God is one that is restrictive and stunted and devoid of fun. But God loves us so much that he sent his son to die for our sin(s) and so that we may have abundant life through him. We are meant for so much more. This passion week is a great opportunity for us to remember and to celebrate this gift of life.
For this song, Maker teamed up with Reisang and he has done a wonderful job. It’s a genre that is not really explored yet by the Tangkhul musicians, especially in gospel music.
Ina Thei has a bit of the 90’s disco vibe, and a little bit of modern electro pop.
In a way, it hugely represents one side of my musical taste other than the typical church music we have come to know.
Maker – I hope you like the song. Enjoy life, but do it with God. Blessed passion week to you all.

I Know (Ina Thei)
You sought after my lost soul
And made it wholly new
(And) I know
All things work together for good
For those who love you
As I wait on you, hope in you,
By your strength, I will run and soar
I will not grow weary
Like on eagle’s wings
I will go on, soar higher
For nothing can separate me from your love
This I know.
It’s your word
That instructs me, makes me wise
It’s a lamp unto my feet.
Tell me who can put to shame
Or stand against the chosen?
You took away my burden
In you I have a victorious life.
Pillar of cloud by day
Pillar of fire by night to lead the way
You never leave me
My loving shepherd
