New Songs

From time to time, we learn new songs in our services. Here you can listen to some we have learned most recently, which may help you to learn them more quickly.

Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all the earth.

Psalm 96:1

Out of the depths (I will wait for You)

“‘I will wait for You’ is based on Psalm 130, one of the great Psalms of distress and longing for God’s intervention in our lives. A significant number of the Psalms articulate the tension of knowing that God is faithful and caring towards us, and yet we often experience great pain and adverse circumstances that would seem to suggest otherwise. The cry of the Psalm and of this song is a response to this tension: of being willing to trust, to wait on Him, to live with the pain with our eyes still fixed on him, knowing that He will never leave or forsake us. It is a powerful thing to look to God with trust and patience through the hard times we will all face at some point in our lives. I pray that this song will be a comfort and a faith-builder for those who find themselves in difficult and dark places.” (Stuart Townend – song writer)

His mercy is more

“At its core, and especially in the chorus, “His Mercy Is More” is a celebratory song although in the opening lines this isn’t so obvious. The opening piano feels haunting and the questioning nature of the first verse acknowledges God’s omniscience and into the second verse the conversation from the singer’s perspective is concerned and questioning “what kind of big God would love a sinner?” But as each verse resolves, we are reminded that “our sins they are many” but God’s mercy is more (Praise the Lord!).”

You spoke to the dust (Image)

This song reminds us that we were made in God’s image, but this was broken by our sin, yet Jesus has rescued us and made the broken image right.

When darkness deepens (Here with me)

“Thinking about the realities of life – the joys, the breakthroughs, the hardships and the journeys we walk through – ‘Here with me’ explores what it means to know that God is with us through it all.

“The final verse talks about the moment we’ll see Jesus face-to-face, where we won’t need eyes of faith. As we look back on the life we’ve lived, all these moments of hardship and pain and breakthrough and joy, we’ll see that in every and each moment, God has been with us.” (Tim Hughes – song writer)
