AS the second quarter opened and the second year of the pandemic begins, Gary Valenciano springs a refreshing surprise with a brand new song expected to inspire and encourage his millions of fans.

Entitled “Make Us Whole Again,” the evolution of the creation of the song makes for an interesting narrative.

Watching sadly the passing of his friends and many front liners and families of classmates and colleagues in the industry, Gary started writing a song in the summer of 2020.

He witnessed the mourning of so many including good friends who lost their parents and siblings to the disease, production staff, front liners, and industry leaders.

Gary watched videos, listened to songs and podcasts, produced videos and participated in various online concerts and fundraisers that raised millions in funds for the various COVID-19 causes.

One special video “Shout For Joy” produced by his Genesis team for his TV show, received a special citation during an international meeting of one of the top 5 global social media platforms and one of the top 3 best lockdown music videos globally and he hit the number three slot after Taylor Swift and John Mayer.

And as the months passed, the crisis only worsened so when his wife Angeli and his team members were diagnosed as being Covid19 Positive, coincidentally he was able to finish the creation and the production of the song with the following lyrics:

Make Us Whole Again
(Gary Valenciano)

Here we are…many are mending their broken hearts
Many are grieving and deeply wounded defeated
From those who’ve gone with no goodbyes
We’ve tried to laugh and we cheered we cried
For the selfless warriors who held the line
For you and I for families like yours and mine
We’ve been through the best and worst of times season after season
When the winds blew hard and the sun refused to shine above us
But we will sing in the storm
And we will dance in the rain
Through we can’t come close
And touch all those who now seem so far away
We’re not alone in this storm
And we will pray in the rain
No our hearts won’t tire
Our faith’s on fire
We know our cries are heard from deep within
Can You heal us and make us whole again
Here we stand
Forgive when we don’t understand
Take our hands and help us through it to endure it
All that’s uncertain and unknown
We’ve been through the best and worst of times You’ve seen us through each season
When the days grew dark You were there to shine the light to guide us
So we will sing in the storm
And we will dance in the rain
Through we can’t come close
And touch all those who now seem so far away
We’re not alone in this storm
And we will pray in the rain
No our hearts won’t tire
Our faith’s on fire
And all our fears are heard from deep within
And we believe that You won’t leave us
Cause it’s a promise You have made

Even when our hearts get so discouraged there’s not one You will forsake
And when the waves leave us battered on the broken roads we’ve got to take
May we walk the way that leads to You
May it be the choice we make
As we sing in the rain
Maybe then someday we’ll have them close
All who seem so far away
We’re not alone in this storm
And we will pray in Your name
No our hearts won’t tire
Our faith’s on fire
We know our tears are in the hands of the one
Who can heal us and make us whole again
Who can make us whole again.
