about

Starting price at $5 + additional donations.

ALL proceeds will go towards the supporting of three chinese orphans for ten years through I Heart Justice, based in Davis, CA.


What is I Heart Justice?

I Heart Justice is a Christian organization that believes in CHANGE through PRAYER first and foremost, but also CHANGE through ACTION. Moreover, we believe that the biggest injustice in the world today is not the sex trafficking of thousands of young girls and boys in Thailand today nor is it the millions of orphans and homeless dying of hunger in Africa and the Philippines, but we believe the Biggest INJUSTICE is the trafficking of SOULS by Satan today. It is the daily robbing and deception of Satan from the joy, the real and intimate fellowship, the fullness of Life that is ours as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, our Lord and Savior, Our Heavenly Father. If you are at all interested in joining, supporting, or donating to I <3 Justice, please feel free to contact us at Choilaw@gmail.com. All proceeds to I <3 Justice will directly go towards the fundraising efforts for our main project this year which is to support 3 orphans for 10 years each through Compassion International.

Below, you will also find a link to our official I <3 Justice Garage Sale on Facebook, please check it out if interested.

Track Name: It's All About You (Ft. Christopher Hwang)
verse one (mickey)

this season is all about You
and i ain't got a reason to live without You
but the noise from the tv is really loud too
so busy going shopping it's already round two
and it's hard to remember when it's all around you
i try recollecting when i first found you
it's 'back to my first, back, back to my first love'
in a dilemma, what would charlie brown do, huh?
and i try to make it all about You, but
i want the new things, and the new stuff
and more than anything it's feeling like nuisance
when i see it all, gotta chuck the deuce up
spruce up, baby, cut it cleaner than a crew cut
gotta focus on what really moves us
giving honor to the King of all the people
so i kneel down, TEBOW.


chorus

i see the snowflakes falling
i hear the sleigh bells ringing
i see the presents wrapped all under the tree tonight
i smell the chestnuts roasting
i hear carolers singing
it's all so lovely but i call to mind
it's all about YOU, YOU, YOU
it's all about YOU, YOU, YOU
it's all about YOU, YOU, YOU
it's all about, it's all about, it's all about


verse two (christopher)

every year the hype gets bigger
see, don't get me wrong but i really wanna figure
why every 26th for many it don't last
and every other thing from the season gonna pass
i know that it's all about You
see, i don't understand why we make it untrue
for the three wise men definitely had You
in their hearts so they confidently followed Your truth
now remember back, back in the day
mary had a baby, little lamb in the hay
born in a place, from a lack of a space
didn't need a better room, still i wanna complain
i'm going back to my first love
it ain't Him? nothing ever gonna be enough
yesss, the joy isn't seasonal
bring it back every day could be beautiful


chorus


bridge

i'm blinded and veiled from the joy of Your glory
though i know it's all around me
i'll open my eyes to the vision of YOU, YOU, YOU


chorus
Track Name: Presence (A Merry Toast) (Ft. David Oh)
verse one (mickey)

if the past is a gift unwrapped
the future's a surprise gift
the present is a present
have you seen what is inside it?
how many of us are present but never present
living but not alive and living without His presence
see, the enemy will trap us in the past full of shame
and keep us from the future full of fear
and even though our God is so faithful
yesterday and tomorrow
His Spirit's living within us right here
throw some SHABA on it!


chorus

so can we raise a toast
to all the lovely folks
it may be cold this winter
but ya'll got me warm like toast
and can we raise a glass
to all the moments passed
we looking to the future
never looking back!

see the holidays are nice
i don't have to think twice
cause Your presence is enough
just to fill my heart up with JOY!


verse two (david)

His presence is the present i presently know and cherish
the parish declareth the joy of the Lord will never perish
His portion i inherit, His name the Holy Spirit
never gonna sell my joy and if you want it you can GET ITT
cause it's your's for free, a treasure to me
i keep it locked up and i lock the key
never give it away cause He payed the price
in the form of a man named Jesus Christ
so break out that christmas swag
knit sweaters and all that jazz
eggnogs go all around
just know i got this round


chorus


bridge

underneath it all i see the heart of it
we made it more, much more than what it truly was
to see His love extend to all the hearts of us
we love Your presence, we love Your presence
and through it all, i've learned to see the truth of it
to keep it pure and trust in Him, the Holy One
to keep in mind, He's come to make us new in Him
we love Your presence, we love Your presence


verse three (mickey)

so this one's for the hecka saved
no room for the hecka fake
how do you expect to take
His presence if His presence isn't moving in you now
let's celebrate the sound that's ringing
occupying wall street?
i'm finna occupy His Kingdom
i got the joy that the devil tries to rob and steal
but i know my God is real
so i just say no, monopoly deal
i got this shield that's made of the faith that i always carry
joy to the world and mozzletoff
gonna set it off right here
good cheer, stay merry!


chorus
Track Name: Joy Is In This Place
i could hear that music play
as it carries that sound of christmas
louder than the sound of the reindeer's sleigh
taken back in time to a place so different
sitting in class, waiting for the school bell
just a kid there doing what i do well
looking at the wall, images of kids
too poor to afford any gifts and i'm thinking...
am i way too comfortable?
sitting here eating my lunchables
santa, are you thinking of the homeless too?
cause if you aren't i'm finna blow a hole in you
just playing, but i'm glad that we drove to the shelter
giving to the kids who were just my age
and even though the moment didn't last forever
i felt...

joy is in this place
joy is in this place
joy is in this place
joy is in this place
cause in your presence i will, i will remain
in your presence i will, i will remain

i still remember those holidays
a dark, cold night during college days
and even though my mom was a call away
i remember feeling joy just fall away
loneliness crept in like the grinch does
it didn't feel like a very white christmas
just me and this tiny television
in a cold room doing dishes
and i pictured how it's supposed to be
lights hung around that christmas tree
santa climbing down that chimney
charlie brown teaching me what christmas mean
and i pondered what christmas is
a christmas list full of expensive gifts?
or maybe it's a time God calls to mind
that ours hearts are where the presence of His Spirit lives
and where the Spirit is no depression lives
no loneliness, only His perfect gifts
full of holiness, full of joy and peace
full of righteousness, full of all i need
from mourning to dancing, sorrow to joy
if tomorrow is void i'll remain in Your plans
i'm raising my hands
i rejoice and i dance cause...

joy is in this place
joy is in this place
joy is in this place
joy is in this place
cause in your presence i will, i will remain
in your presence i will, i will remain

in your presence, oh God
there is fullness of joy
at your right hand, oh God
there are pleasures evermore
Track Name: Celebrate
i got a reason to celebrate
i elevate my praise, let it resonate
around the world, let His name levitate
above the stars, on His words, meditate
day and night, come like a wind to me
the holy ghost, the one He's put into me
i believe, He's every single thing to me
so i sing unto Him, cue the symphony
violins and strings and instruments of worship
living for the things i now find to be worthless
mad is the world, my life looks like a circus
but you freed me through love you labeled perfect
tell me what i could've done to deserve this
feeling like... dang, is He really that great?
feeling like... man, could i meet another lover
who covers me with this love
who could ever take His place?

everything i have is from You for me so i
celebrate the one
celebrate the one
celebrate Him, who's loved me endlessly
i love You for who You are not for what you give me
celebrate the one
celebrate the one
celebrate Him, who's loved me endlessly

if you know you got the joy
then make some noise, get it popping!
make some noise, get it popping!
make some noise, get it popping!

i got a reason to groove and dance
to move and laugh, i never wanna lose my chance
to show the world what i'm really all about
to share the one for whom i wanna sing about
celebrate, come and let the good times roll
think of everything He's done for me
singing straight from the depths of my own soul
think of everything He's won for me
my victory's secure and achieved by Him
that's the reason why i trust and believe in Him
that's the reason why i'll never think of leaving Him
His love came to me, not from me to Him
it's Him to me, when He spoke deep within
breathed life to this heart, moving me to sing
now i'm elevated high in a seat with Him
and there's never been a moment of defeat within

everything i have is from You for me so i
celebrate the one
celebrate the one
celebrate Him, who's loved me endlessly
i love You for who You are not for what you give me
celebrate the one
celebrate the one
celebrate Him, who's loved me endlessly

if you know you got the joy
then make some noise, get it popping!
make some noise, get it popping!
make some noise, get it popping!
Track Name: Wait On Me (Hope Rendition)
so wait, wait on me
wait, wait on me

i, i've been broken in
but i sure ain't been broken down

so wait, wait on me
wait, wait on me

cause there is power in the name of Jesus
there is power in the name of Jesus
there is power in the name of Jesus
to break every chain
fill every heart

i stand on Your word
i stand on Your truth
that's why i'm here waiting
i wait here for You
and i will trust in Your promise for me
i live in Your promise and Your victory!
