about

We are passionate about everyday worship! Here is a collection of
simple songs written and recorded among laughter and tears, sunshine and sorrow, celebration and solitude in the space we share together called home - if you listen carefully you might be able to hear our daily soundtrack of the dishwasher, children playing, buses and birdsong in the background!

These songs reflect both the holiness and homeliness of God, of us being welcomed into God's house among a holy community and of God's company touching us here on earth. We hope these simple songs can be used as prayers to accompany the highs and lows of everyday life and sung in the home with friends as extended family together.

Track Name: Gather Round
Gather round, all you sons and daughters
Gather round, children of the King
Gather round, all you sons and daughters
Gather here with Him
Gather here with Him

Come and rest, all who feel weary
Come and rest, I’ll pick you up again
Come and rest, your head upon my shoulder
Lay your burdens down
Lay your burdens down

Lay your burdens
Come and lay your burdens down
Lay your burdens down
I will carry You

Track Name: Communion
Drawn into the Shepherd’s fold
Inside the warmth, outside the cold
A table laid, so fill me up
Break the bread now, pass the cup

An outstretched hand, an unveiled place
I’m met with mercy, clothed with grace
The Spirit’s breath, the Saviour’s smile
The Fathers voice, “Come stay awhile”

This is a place where lives are shared
Of stories told, both young and old
This is a place where dreams are made
Of unwrapped hearts, and unpacked souls

Of holy communion, holy communion
Where I commune with You, I commune with You

Written by Simon Shaw © 2014
Track Name: Above Me
Above me hangs the silent sky;
Around this city sleeps;
These streets are all at rest, and I
Am, Lord, alone with Thee.

Go where I may, from all remote,
Thou, Lord, art ever near:
No secret thought,that You can’t know;
No word, that You can’t hear.

When all around are deep in sleep,
Thy presence here I find;
Through darkest night my soul you keep,
And watch my troubled mind.

In winds, through rain, and stormy sky;
I see Thee present here;
And, looking at myself, I cry,
Am I still in Thy care?

The sense of all I’ve been and done
Would fill me with despair
But to my Saviour’s arms I run,
And find my refuge there.

Lord, arm my soul with faith in Thee,
And fill my heart again,
And grant me here communion sweet
With Thee, the sinner’s friend.
And grant me here communion sweet
With Thee, the sinner’s friend

Original Hymn by Henry F Lyte (1793-1847)
Rewritten by Rachel Meissner and Simon Shaw ©2014
Track Name: Holy Spirit Breathe
Holy Spirit, light divine
Shine upon this life of mine
Chase the shade of night away
Turn my darkness into day

Holy Spirit, all divine
Dwell within this heart of mine
A pure temple, would I be
I dedicate my all to thee

Holy Spirit breathe
Fill my life anew
I’m longing to receive, more of You

Let me see my Saviour’s face
Oh to me his beauties trace
Show those glorious truths to me
Which are only known to thee

Holy Spirit, Love divine
“Abba, Father”, be my cry
Heaven’s child I have become
Welcomed to my Father’s home

Original Hymn by Andrew Reed (1787-1862)
Re-written by Simon Shaw ©2014
Track Name: Hear The Angels
Hear the angels sing
Crown Him Lord and King
Lift your voice to Him
Worthy, Worthy

See the Holy throne
Christ the Living One
Worship Him alone
Holy, Holy

Joining with the angels song
Gathered from each tribe and tongue
Bow before Your ancient throne
We cry Holy, Holy, Holy

And we cast our crowns down
Singing worthy is the Lamb, Worthy is the Lamb
And we lay our lives down
Singing worthy is the Lamb, Worthy is the Lamb

Written by Simon Shaw, Andy and Wendy Green ©2014
Track Name: Home
Jesus, You are welcome here
Welcome in this heart of mine
Jesus, I am drawing near
Asking Your Spirit to find
A place in my heart for Your throne
A life that will serve You alone

Make Your home in me
Dwell in me anew
I lay ambition down
And set my sights on You
To see Your kingdom come
And Your will be done
On earth as in heaven
As you make Your home in me

Written by Simon and Gaynor Shaw ©2014
Track Name: Holy
I desire
You my King
To be here
In Your Majesty
To fall at Your feet and worship
To be here in Your glory

You are Holy
Holy
You are Holy
Holy

Here I am
At Your feet
I once was broken
And now complete
You know me more than I ever could
You have put me together again

I’m made Holy
Holy
I’m made Holy
Holy

Written by Rachel Meissner ©2014
Track Name: Sing Your Praise (Hallelujah)
Your eyes are on the sparrow
And I know You’re watching over me
Even in the darkest night
Your mighty hands, they cradle me

So, I’ll sing Your praise
I’ll sing Your praise
I’ll sing Your praise
All of my days

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Written by Rachel Meissner and Ben May ©2014
Track Name: Stones Will Sing (Sovereign)
In the heat of the desert
You’re refining my heart
In the valley of dry bones
I am coming alive
I am coming alive

In the midst of the rubble
You’re reviving my soul
From the ruins of burnt stones
This temple will rise
This temple will rise

You are, God Sovereign
Through it all, You are, Sovereign
You are, our God, Sovereign
Over all, You are Sovereign

Whoah
Whoah, these bones will live again
Whoah, these stones will sing again

Written by Simon Shaw, Rachel Meissner and Lydia Squires ©2014
Track Name: First Love (Let Your Passion Burn)
Jesus, the Father’s glory
The One the only Son of God
Jesus, Your Spirit draws me
I hear You calling at my door
Far from Your fire, I grow cold
Lord, I am here to buy gold

Here I pause, turn,
Fix my eyes on the King
I return, to You, my first love

Let Your passion burn in me
For all the world to see
We'll see your glory in the ordinary world
Of our lives

Written by Simon and Gaynor Shaw ©2014
Track Name: Take My Life (All Of Me)
Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee

Take my will, and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

I give You all of me
I give You all of me
For I am yours, I am Yours

Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Original Hymn by Frances R Havergal (1836-1879)
