about

Much has been written about worship in recent years and Christians often use phrases such as 'times of worship' and 'sacrifices of praise', but what is worship and how do songs relate to it?

I have come to understand 'worship' as everything we do which consciously honours God; everything from washing the dishes and playing with my kids, to taking minutes of meetings and trying to tell people about Jesus.

It seems there is a growing desire among many for the songs we sing in church to relate, not only to the greatness of the God we worship, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and the power of the Spirit, but to what worship looks like in everyday living. The songs we sing should help us to connect with the grandeur of God and the big story of eternal salvation whilst being grounded in temporal reality; engaging not only our hearts and spirits, but our minds too.

This album is my first attempt at doing that. Like most albums, some songs are better than others, but my hope is that some will help you connect with God and remind you of the bigger story you live in every day.

If you would like to contact me, email me at: theepeacocks@hotmail.com

May we all still be singing this time tomorrow, out on the frontlines and battlefields of God's mission.

Track Name: When Monday Comes
When Monday Comes

Verse 1:
We gather here today, to fellowship and pray
To gaze upon our king, to focus on your ways
We meditate on truth, encouraged once again
To sing with all our hearts, To give you thanks and praise
Bridge:
May worship flow in all we say, think and do

Chorus:
When Monday comes will we still be singing?
As we awake to face the day
In every moment, every place
Declare your beauty, love and grace
When Monday comes

Verse 2:
In fields and factories, school and nursery
In cafes, clubs and bars, council, care and police
At home, at work or play, in sickness and in health
In towns and villages, and on the city streets

Bridge:
May worship flow in all we say, think and do

Chorus:
When Monday comes will we still be singing?
As we awake to face the day
In every moment, every place
Declare your beauty, love and grace
When Monday comes

Middle 8:
Every day as sacred as the Sabbath and the feast
Everyone as precious as the pastor and the priest
Every space as holy, whether church or home or street
Every soul invited from the greatest to the least
Track Name: Living For Your Mission
Living For Your Mission

V1
You have called us out of darkness, from the shadows into glorious light
You have saved us from distraction, and have called us into action

Once we lived without a purpose, worked for money, thought about number one
Now we’re following the Saviour, love for God and for our neighbour

CHORUS
We are living for a mission, We are living for the mission of God
We have made a firm decision, We are living for your mission

V2
Jesus open doors and windows, opportunities to share the good news
For your great plan of salvation is for reconciliation

Sin has caused a separation in the hearts of disobedient souls
Death has reigned supreme since Adam and you long to bridge the chasm

MIDDLE 8
Why God would choose to use us, we'll never know
A motley crew, His truth to share
As Christ's ambassadors we are called to go and make disciples everywhere

ALT CHORUS
Are you living for a mission?
Are you living for the mission of God?
Will you make a firm decision?
Are you living for the mission?
Track Name: Be Our Strength (Shout to God)
Be Our Strength (Shout To God)

Verse 1
There’s a time for weeping and there’s a time to mourn
But now is not that day, now is not that day
There’s a time for grieving and there’s a time to cry
But now is not that day, now is not that day

Bridge
Today I’ll decide to firmly fix these eyes upon the author of our faith
And today I’ll give thanks, whatever the circumstance
And offer the Lord heartfelt praise

Chorus
Shout to God, all the people sing, let the sound of praises ring
For the Lord has done great things and may we rejoice in him always
Everyday may an anthem rise, spread the gospel of Jesus Christ
In the valleys and through the trials
Come let the joy of the Lord now be our strength

Verse 2
There’s a joy for sinners that we can’t explain
It stands in spite of pain, like sunshine through the rain
There’s a hope within us that we can’t contain
Assist us to proclaim the glories of your name

Middle 8
I will sing of your love in the morning, your faithfulness in the night
You have filled this poor soul with gladness and the strength to fight
Track Name: Outrageous Grace
Outrageous Grace

Verse 1
You caused a stir when you healed on the Sabbath,
You went for dinner with sinners and blaggers
You welcomed women to sit with the men and learn
You told it straight to the proud and the pious,
showing mercy to the wayward adultress
You put a ring on the finger of a wreckless son

Chorus:
Outrageous grace, outrageous grace,
You broke all the rules, you silenced the fools,
the last given first place
Outrageous grace, outrageous grace,
Inviting the meek and broken to feast,
to taste and to see that you are good

Verse 2
You hear the cry of the widow and barren,
you brought your kingdom with a foretaste of heaven
You grant justice to the one who persists and prays
You said ‘forgive and you will be forgiven’,
and only those who die are really living
You leave the ninety nine to search for the one who strays

Bridge:
Outrageous, that Jesus, the saviour was crucified,
The sinless for the shameless, the blameless for the brazen died
Courageous, contagious through the ages
The grace of God which calls us and saves us, it cleanses and sanctifies
Track Name: Spirit Of Jubilee
The Spirit of Jubilee

Verse 1
Living like brothers, sisters and friends
Each blessing received is shared with those in need
Selling possession, breaking our bread
There's always enough when humbly placed at God's feet

Bridge
Another world is possible
Right here on earth like heaven

Chorus
This should be good news to both strong and weak
Welcoming all into the fold, treating the foreigner like our own
This should be good news to both rich and poor
Breaking the chains of wealth and the fear of death
In the spirit of Jubilee

Verse 2
What if we took a Sabbath rest, trust God provides and knows what is best
What if we only used what we need, leaving some fruit at the edge of the field

Verse 3
What if we cancelled everyone's debt, the slave could be free, the slate would be clean
In each generation gave back the land to whom it belonged, a once in a lifetime chance
Track Name: You Live Today (The Bible's Not A Manual)
You Live Today

V1
The bible's not a manual to help you fix your life
It's more potent than dynamite and sharper than a knife
Each story has a context, an author and a goal
There's proverbs, songs and history contained within its scroll

Chorus
And every word is useful for training and rebuke
Every single chapter is full of precious truth
The word then dwelt among us, the scriptures came to life
The prophecies fulfilled in Jesus Christ

V2
Too often we are tempted to read between the lines
To cherry pick the verses that fit with our designs
But God's word is unchanging, it's earthy and it's real
He didn't take into account the way think or feel

Middle 8
Jesus, you're the word, the word of truth
The image of our God, His living proof
Come Spirit do your work, may we bear fruit
and show the world you live today
Track Name: The Scandalous Son Of God
The Scandalous Son of God

V1
Scandal it started before you were born,
your mother a virgin, the family was torn
Who was the father that brought such disgrace,
Mary and Joseph could not show their face
Fled from a tyrant, a child refugee,
grew with the stigma, a shamed family tree
And then in the temple, you opened the scroll,
and claimed: 'This was written of me'

CHORUS
The scandal surrounding the pure Son of God
Such scandal cause by the innocent one
The scandalous Son of God

V2
Scandal surround you all of your life,
an outspoken preacher, no home and no wife
Misunderstood and accused by the proud,
of stirring up trouble, inciting the crowd
They called you a glutton, a drunkard, a fake,
a host of traditions you taught folk to break
Then like a convict, they led you to die, and laughed as they crucified

MIDDLE 8
Our God is not safe, he can't be contained
Offends the religious with outrageous claims
He cleared out the temple, he brandished the whip
He walked on the water and steadied the ship
He calls out the demons and dead men awake
He gives slaves their freedom, the prison chains break
To follow this Jesus might lead you to death
The cross still offends to this day...
Track Name: God's Generosity
God’s Generosity

V1
May we give according to our means
that righteousness will spring up from the seeds
Let’s offer time, resources, wealth and prayer
to serve the poor, reflect a God who cares

Bridge 1
For every cheerful giver knows we’ll reap just what we’ll sow
Our all sufficient Father longs for fruitfulness to grow

Chorus
Though He was rich, He became poor and by His poverty grace overflowed
Now all we have we lightly hold, God’s generosity we’re called to show

V2
No one can serve both Jesus Christ and wealth
unless they compromise their spiritual health
So we must make possessions to be slaves
or they will master and replace the one who saves

Bridge 2
And all we treasure we will keep within our precious hearts
So may your gospel there be found and we will play our part
Track Name: Naturally Supernatural
Naturally Supernatural

Verse 1
The blind will see and the lame will walk
The deaf will hear and the mute will talk
As we bring your good news to the poor
The same power that raised Christ from the dead
Is in those who believe in what He said
So by your Spirit we will go

Bridge
Heaven come down, clothe us in power

Chorus
We wanna be naturally supernatural
We wanna be fighting for the Lord in battle
We’re gonna be stepping out in faith to see your kingdom come
We’re gonna be reaching out to friends and neighbours
We’re gonna do all we can to make you famous
We’re gonna be praying for the lost to see your will be done

Verse 2
All those held captive will be released
People broken and wounded will feel Your peace
And righteousness will fill the streets
Jesus said greater things would come
Than the miracles by God the Son
Ask and believe it will be done

Middle 8
Holy Spirit Come
Track Name: The Risen King
The Risen King

Verse1
The world was waiting for a saviour,
a king to rule with a sceptre in his hand
But Jesus left his throne in heaven,
a humble man led to the slaughter like a lamb

Bridge
Though he was dead, now he’s alive
He is returning for his bride

Chorus
Jesus is the risen king, the first among the dead - this I know!
Oh death where is your sting? It’s been swallowed up in victory
You rolled away the stone from my heart
And now I live in your resurrection power

Verse 2:
And if there is no resurrection, we hope in vain
and should be pitied all our days.
But Jesus broken, shamed and crucified,
A guarded grave, from which he rose on the third day!
Track Name: This Time Tomorrow
This time tomorrow

Verse 1
This time tomorrow, where will we be?
Out on the frontlines and battlefields
As kingdom agents of love and grace
To spread the gospel in every place

Verse 2
This time tomorrow, I'll face the day
Though stress may follow, I'll quietly pray
In every burden, in word and deed
The love of Jesus will work through me

Chorus
And there will never be an end to the mission of God
Until every tribe hears that Jesus is Lord
Where the soil is hard and the labourers few
We will sow in faith and proclaim the truth
With the people of faith and those covered in shade
We will shine like stars in your heavens displayed
For the sake of the lost, we will never give up
We will carry the cross this time tomorrow
This time tomorrow

Verse 3
This time tomorrow, the world awaits an invitation
As God narrates a bigger story, for all mankind
No greater purpose a soul shall find

Middle 8
May our bodies be an offering
As we work with all our hearts
Every area of life surrendered to the Lord
Track Name: When Your Kingdom Comes
V1
When your kingdom comes what will stay the same?
Will we work for love or financial gain?
Always soaked in sun or will there be rain?
Everlasting joy in exchange for pain?

V2
When you come to rule, bring your government
Will the poor be filled and the rich be spent?
Every restless heart feel a deep content?
Every prison closed, every soul repent?

CHORUS
Until that day we will act and pray
We’ll obey your word in all we do and say
We will show the world Jesus is the way
As it is in heaven, may it be today

V3
There will be no crime, no disease or death
Not a bomb or gas to pollute our breath
Every work of art, every film and song
As a pure response to the risen son

MIDDLE 8
Your kingdom come, your will be done
On earth just as in heaven

V4
Everyone will see, just as clear as day
God will walk with us, speaking face to face
When the pure in heart with the meek on earth
Will be born again with a second birth
