about

Every task is the combustion of the flame of God. He greets us in the kitchen. He gazes intently upon us at the well-curb. In the bustle and hustle of the factory or when we are hanging on the strap in the crowded car we breathe God.

- Toyohito Kagawa

The idea of liturgy is one that can’t be separated from the works of the public; it’s the description of a faith that is all-encompassing. This God we sing to; He’s not distant from us. He’s not confined within the walls of a Sabbath service. He’s a blue-collar deity; evident in the steel and the mortar and the recurring cycle of creation outside your door. He’s in death and life and everything in between.

Our sacred songs then, become anthems of the ordinary. Tributes to the God of our working week; the one who greets us in the bustle and hustle.

Songs of the common good.

Track Name: Amen
I want to hear Your voice
But the head makes war with the heart
I want to live in holy forfeit
Bound by the words You said

I want to know what You meant
When You said love would beat the sword
I want to see the kingdom
In the eyes of my fellow man

Amen, amen
Let it be as You said

I want to learn to pray
With my hands before my words
I want to see earth from heaven
And see heaven in the dirt of earth

I want to live for more
No longer I, but Thine
No longer mine, but Yours

Amen, amen
Let it be as You said
Track Name: Let There Be Light
If the horizon becomes a line with no end
I will follow Your voice with each little step
I will set my compass by a higher course
Show a prodigal heart the direction ahead
 
Word, most divine
Make Your way inside

Let there be light
My heart is an open sky

And if it be Your will, set me to my knees
Send me close to the earth, bring me closer to Thee
I am learning the art of surrendering
I am hearing Your voice in the absence of me
Track Name: Arms of Love
If hope is lost
To wreck and debris
If comfort fails
And ground falls to the sea

An afterlight
Still burns in me

If I should falter
Feet don’t fail me
Set wings above
And ever-watchful eyes on me

These arms of love
These guards of mercy

I’ll never boast
Of my own empires
When I am held in hands that hold the stars*
For I have found
Kingdoms in Your embrace

The arms of love
This signal song
The arms of love
Will cover me

In the arms everlasting
God above and God beside me
Track Name: Come to the Water
There’s a place for the thirsty
There’s a house for the wayward soul
Grace, uncontained like an over-run well
There’s a saviour with answers for me

There’s a quiet exchange 
There’s a peace that will not be explained 
Frayed at the edges but seeking Your face
I am emptied upon bended knee

Come to the water
That runs to the sea
You will wait
For me

There’s a place where I find You
Where the borders of faith and doubt meet
Pilgrim, petitioner, vagrant and thief
All in Your sight made complete

There’s a road to Emmaus
Where Heavenly company’s kept
Traced in the dust of an ever-worn path
Step by accompanied step
Track Name: Abide
Over aching seas
Reach for open skies
I’m here alone but You are with me
Feet heavy from the climb
I breathe Your endless life
And in Your stillness I abide

My shelter is a cave
I climb towards Your whisper
Beyond the wind or thunder storming
When darkness finds me hiding
I lie in comfort’s arms
And in Your kindness I abide

And I could stay here a little while
Or I could run for cover
I found an anchor in the depths of Your heart
You remain and I abide

Your goodness like a flame
A light of constant guidance
And all my shadow fears are failing
I bend my will to Thee
And all ghosts run for cover
And in Your safe sight I abide

Under starry hosts
I dare not count them all
As is above, below shall be
While strangers on the road
Find company from heaven
In this assurance I abide
Track Name: The Round
Morning wakes the light
Sweeping through the tree shutters
And the sky sings her hymn
Bringing out the full colour
You appear
 
And You still talk
In this You talk
If I go up to the mountain
I’ll still find You
Track Name: At the Cross
When the world is quiet
I will lean upon the cross
In the company of thieves
I am too, a prince to Thee

I will leave this
At the cross

I will fall down to my knees
I will kiss beloved feet
All my pains are shattered fast
In the company of Thee
Track Name: Will Not Forget
I will remember this
I’m safe, I’m held, I’m open
Every edge of the world insists
Unwavering devotion

I will remember You
I’m home, I’m held, I’m broken
Every time Your mercy arrives
I feel Your strength divine

The pillar of light
The end of the night
We will not forget it
No, we will not forget

The rescue, the rise
This hope in our eyes
We will not forget it
No, we will not forget
Track Name: Oh God
Oh God, I bring to You the doubt in my head
Oh God, I bring to You the stuff I don't get
Oh God, I bring to You the things that I said
Oh God, I bring to You my disconnect

And I stand with my hands
As open as the land
And you see every crease
And every grain of sand

Oh God, I bring to You all of my pride
Oh God, I bring to You the hunger I hide
Oh God, I bring to You the tears that I shed
Oh God, I bring to You whatever is left

The rain knows my name
And all of those along the barren plain
The thorn knows the rose
And protects it as it grows

Oh God, I bring to You the habits I hate
Oh God, I bring to You my plan of escape
Oh God, I bring to You my place on the road
Oh God, I bring to You the little I know

And I stand with my hands
As open as the land
You see every crease
And every grain of sand
Track Name: Peace
When you lay down your head
Peace be with you He said
When you fear what’s ahead
Peace be with you He said
When you’re filled with regret
Peace be with you He said
I’ll be holding your hand
Peace be with you He said

When they throw the first stone
Peace be with you He said
When you’re pining for home
Peace be with you He said
When the magic is gone
Peace be with you He said
I’ll be there all along
Peace be with you He said

Lay down your cares
At Jerusalem’s walls
The ragged, the torn
Will be troubled no more

Carve out a path
To the rugged old cross
All is not lost
All is not lost 

When the melody fades
Peace be with you He said
When all else has failed
Peace be with you He said
When you’re lost in the war
Peace be with you He said
And your scars scream for more
Peace be with you He said

When the wolf’s at the door
Peace be with you He said
There’s a light up ahead
Peace be with you He said
When your heart’s on your sleeve
When you’re all out of fight
You’ll be safe in My sight
Peace be with you He said
