Yesu Namamஇயேசு நாமம்
இருளின் மழையாய் உலகில் பிறந்தார், இருளில் ஒளியாய் உலகில் மலர்ந்தார்
"Yesu Namam" was composed by Shyamalangan in 1994 for a "Youth Service" at CSI Church, Sri Lanka. With the almightly's blessings, the song became an instant hit amongst the youth and started to reach other church in Sri Lanka.
A Christian album was in the making following the success of the Yesu Namam, but due to insufficient funds the album was never launched. Most of the songs were redone in the commercial space.
Wesley Rajamanie, Choir Master at the Christ Church (Galle Face - Sri Lanka); reached out to me one day seeking permission to sing 'Yesu Naamam' for his carols service. During the conversation he understood that I needed funds for my music-album recording.
He on his own loaned me the initial amount for the recording which I later paid back. I was able to do the recording, but for further production I didn't have enough funds and didn't get any sponsors. Wesley coming out and helping me out is something that I cannot forget.
Making of Kiri Kodu
In 2004, 'Yesu Namam' was redone as Kiri Kodu for a commercial album and featuring Sri Lankan pop idol Nirosha Virajini with Bathiya and Santhush. The song became an instant hit and celebrated around world for the blend of music flavors.
- කිරි කෝඩු හිතට ආල නුඹේ දෑස යාවුනා
මගේ කෝල කමට ලෝල හැඟුම නුඹට පේවුනා
- உயிராய் மொழியாய் உணர்வில் நிறைந்தாய்
இதயம் முழுதும் இசையாய் இணைந்தாய்
- සුපෙම් නුවන් විමසාවි රෑ දිවා
ඔබ රූ අඳුන් දසුනින් දුරයි කියා
- ஓராயிரம் விண்மீன்கள் கோர்த்து
ஒரு முத்தமாய் உன் கன்னம் சேர்ப்பேன்
- මතු මා පැතූ කිසිවක් නොවේ
සැනසීම වේ ආදරේ
- உன் புன்னகை என் ஸ்வாசமாகும்
உன் பார்வையால் பெண்ணாகினேனே
- ඔබ මේ පිදූ සේවනේම රැඳිලා
මගේ ජීවිතේ නවතීවි පාසිනා
- கண்ணாளனே உன்னோடு நான்
