Wait for You 04:27
Wait for You There’s a star in the sky tonight that tells us the story / of when God’s only son was born to shine His glory / Poor shepherds heard / their spirits were stirred / and angels sang in joy / So here I come to you, oh Lord / a fool from a thirsty land / and I would travel further still / if it could bring me just one step closer / CH1/ I will wait for you / Lord Jesus I’ll walk towards you / and I’ll witness to the world of you / Lord Jesus I bow down and worship you There’s a moment in time, the earth will shake and heavens part / when the King returns to his rightful throne and faithful hearts / So I cry out and raise these two hands / Jesus come now – enter in! / So here I come to you, oh Lord / to fall down before your throne / and I will praise you further still / just let me live in your house forever / CH2/ I will wait for you / Lord Jesus I’ll walk towards you / and I’ll witness to the world of you / Lord Jesus I bow down and worship BR/ Oh let the wise men come from far and wide to bring gifts of glory to the King / There is no other name by which this world can be saved / CH3+4/ So I wait for you / Lord Jesus I’ll walk towards you / and I’ll witness to the world of you / Lord Jesus I’ll bow down and worship / I’ll wait for you / Lord Jesus I’ll walk towards you / and I’ll witness to the world of you / Lord Jesus I’ll bow down and worship you © 2007 Ari Ben & Ange Pickering

Faith on fire You see me when I can’t see the forest for the trees / I need You to please burn through the chaff inside of me / We see You, Your story / please bring down Your glory / oh ignite us / CH/ Lord, set our faith on fire / the darkness deepens, we burn brighter / Lord, set our faith on fire / in a world that holds us down we reach higher / O Lord inspire this generation to desire to be set on fire for You You know me and You hold me when I fall apart / You chose me and You loved me from the very start / We know You, Holy One / You reached down, gave Your Son / to ignite us / [CH] / BR/ You are the flame / we are Your altar / ignite Your name / [x4] / Yahweh / [CH] / to be set on fire for You [x2] © 2010 Ari Ben Pickering & Joseph Pogson

Living water 04:34
Living water Lord, I’m thirsty and I know You’re the source of pure water flowing from a place beyond Your door / When it’s darkest Lord, I know You’re the Light / piercing through the emptiness of this dungeon’s endless night / Lord, I’m longing for a glimpse / I’m aching to be there / I’m longing to be free CH/ Lord, let me hear Your every word / God of living water, let me overflow / let me thirst no more / spring of life within me / let Your water pour / from the rock of endless love / in the flow of Your will, let Your spirit fulfil / here on earth as above Lord I’m longing for this earth to be filled with full awareness of Your glory as the waters fill the sea / and by Your grace, Lord, if this heart can be Yours / take this vessel and fill me with Your faith, love and peace / Lord I’m longing for the day / I long to see Your face / the moment our eyes meet / [CHx2] © 2008 Ari Ben & Ange Pickering

Believe 03:34
Believe A hush of wind and I begin and I fall away and I just can’t stay / please take me in / Down by the docks, the waves on the rocks / I’m revived right there, the wind in my hair / Forgive my sin / So I set out in this little boat / I know it ain’t much, but it’ll still float / Nothing’s ready but the sails are set / I’ll prove to this world that it’s round yet / CH1/ There’s only one way to reach relief / sail this sea of unbelief The tide is out and the boats are all gone / the days are a dream and the nights so long / The first season’s winter, the valley torn apart / and the runner at the finish line thrown back to the start / CH2/ And there’s only one way to reach relief / let go of self and just believe [CH1&2] © 1998 Luke Jurevicius & Ari Ben Pickering

Light in your world Sometimes it gets so dark, sometimes so confusing / Clouding corridors, so many mysterious doors, it’s too difficult choosing / Is there a harder task, a bigger ask – to know thyself? / Convoluted calls, conspiring walls / where’s that book on the shelf? CH1/ But I want to be the light in your world / when all the lights go out, don’t be scared little girl Life’s indescribable, indecipherable turning / As the pathway winds, the steeper it seems to climb, increasing our learning / We all are metaphors for something more – can we find out? Unravelling the knots, inside’s another doll / what’s this photograph about? / [CH2] In the darkest hour of night / I am with you here to make it right / hold on tight / CH3/ Because I’m going to be the light in your world / when all the lights go out, don’t be scared little girl / because I’m going to be the light in your world / light in your world / when all the lights go out, don’t be scared little girl / don’t be scared little girl / because I’m going to be the light in your world © 2008 Ari Ben Pickering

Broken bits 05:08
Broken bits My best attempts, my best intentions / my best must be much better than this / A bead of sweat, a falling tear / one drop of blood, and that’s the year / Another breach, I need more mortar / one more plug and much more water / I mark the wall, I feel much taller / then glimpse the stars, now so much smaller CH/ But I want You in all of me / and all I have / these broken bits / I place before You now We seem to lose so many battles / I can’t believe we’ll win the war / And some days when the fog’s too thick / I wonder who I’m fighting for / There’s moments when we feel so close and angels pass and stand nearby / Yet others when the great divide from Your holiness just seems too wide / [CH] You give mercy to keep, love to accept and grace to change [x3] / My best attempts, my best intentions / Your best must be much better than this © 2006 Ari Ben Pickering
7.
Love You Lord CH/ With all my heart / with all my soul / with all of my mind and my strength / I love You LORD / oh how I love You LORD So many desires inside my heart / so many worries on my mind / oh how I long to tip them out / and fill me up with You / Stains and scars down inside my soul / and this running ‘round saps my strength / Lord, gently lift me up again restore my soul to You / [CHx2] I need more of You and less of me [x3] / [CHx2] © 2007 Ari Ben Pickering

Jerusalem 05:07
Jerusalem Most glorious things are spoken, Jerusalem, of thee / to all God’s saints the token of love and liberty / Who shall thy hill ascending, from pain and sorrow free / from sin and death’s contending, the living glory be? / Who shall, the white stone bearing / His secret name behold / and robes of whiteness wearing, come forth as purged gold? / He who has hands of cleanness, whose heart abides in truth / whose soul abhors to leanness the vanities of youth BR/ Pray for peace / pray for Jerusalem / and we it’s joy shall see / Jerusalem He shall receive the blessing of Yahweh’s saving grace / and, righteousness possessing, shall see Him face to face / Yes! Wondrous things are spoken, Jerusalem, of thee / the oath cannot be broken and we it’s joys shall see / Yes, wondrous things are spoken, Jerusalem of thee Traditional Hymn / Music by Alexander Ewing (1830-95) & Words by David Brown (1867) / Additional bridge by

Come to Zion 07:47
Come to Zion LORD, through the valley / LORD, through the fire / You are my shield and defender / LORD, through the night / when it’s so dark / Your comfort is truly tender / Holding me in the palm of Your hand, help me understand / You are my rock and You are my shelter / I look to the hills and I see You / and thousands of angels and chariots of fire / and witnesses dying to meet You / then out of the desert rises a mountain that everyone can see / the spirit of Your people is shaking the nations / as we have heard so have we seen CH/ We burst through the gates, we sing out Your name / This is the city of the Great King / Dancing, rejoicing, laughing ‘til it hurts / Yahweh has ascended in the shouts of joy / Lift up the horn, let the trumpet sound / Here comes Jesus and we fall to the ground / The Angels are singing in a voice we’ve never heard / From the towering heights above us comes the roar of a Holy Lion / and we get up and shout - everybody come to Zion! Great are You LORD, and most worthy of praise / I can’t leave this world, but it’s not my place / so I’ll let them run for the dollar and the gun / because Zion is my refuge - this only by grace / so Father if You call me / I’ll be singing of Your love in Your temple here tonight / and I’ll tell them what You’ve asked me and pray that they will hear / and see if they will come and see this sight! / [CH] / Come, come, come to Zion [Everybody come to Mount Zion / to the city of the living God / to the heavenly Jerusalem / You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly / to the called out whose names are written in heaven / You have come to God, to the righteous, and to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant that speaks a better word / Come to Zion] © 2003 Ari Ben Pickering

Now is the time Lord God, we’re sorry for our sins / We stretch out before Your throne, Holy One / Sin took us captive, took us far from home / and now humbled hearts return / Lord God, there is none righteous here /We’ve all strayed far from Your glory, Shining Light / so as we sit here in the ruins of our faith / we pray You’ll give us strength to stand / Father, as we consider the way we’ve gone / please search our hearts and lead us on in the Way of Life / Everlasting, the Way of Truth / We, the remnant of Your people / prepare to meet You in Your Holy Place / CH/ Now is the time to build Your house / We are the stones to the glory of Your Name / These are the days, we lift our hearts in praise / From this day we’ll seek Your face Lord God, high heavens are Your home / These bricks and bones cannot contain You, Awesome Love / but as we stand on this foundation of Your Word / we unite around the Cornerstone / A voice is calling in the wilderness / Shake the heavens and earth, and set us free / oh let the desired of all nations come / confidently through this curtain into the presence of Your Mercy Seat / CH/ Now is the time to build Your house / We are the stones to the glory of Your Name / These are the days, we lift our hearts in praise / From this day we’ll seek You BR/ In the face of Christ, Your Only Son, we see Your beauty shine / and in this grace we stand by faith to see the dawning day / when this whole world will worship You, Your glory here to stay / and fill the earth CH/ Now is the time to build Your house / We are the stones to the glory of Your Name / These are the days, we’ll lift our hearts in praise from this day on / Now is the time to build Your house / We are the stones to the glory of Your Name / These are the days, we lift our hearts in praise / From this day we’ll seek Your face © 2005 Ari Ben Pickering

Come to the water V1/ Jesus says, thirst for righteousness and you will be blessed / He calls come, no matter where you’re from / Living water, thirsty one / here’s living water, thirsty one / V2/ Jesus says, I am the Word, I am the Way / Hear my voice and follow me today / Living water, thirsty one / here’s living water, thirsty one / V3/ Jesus says, I have washed your feet, now you are clean / and in this way serve each other’s needs / Living water, thirsty one / here’s living water, thirsty one BR/ Come to the water, I know how you thirst / Here you’ll find refuge, release and new birth / Come to the water I freely give / Here’s living water, thirsty one / Come to the water, thirsty one V4/ Jesus says, I am the wine, I am the bread / Take me in, and I will live through you / Living water, thirsty one / here’s living water, thirsty one © 2007 Ari Ben Pickering, Ange Pickering & Ben Grace

Welcome home 03:22
Welcome home You have travelled so many days and now you’re here / Seen many seasons, dreams and trials / So many miles, you look so tired - please stop a while / CH1/ Welcome home, you’re not alone / we’re all here because the Father sent His Son to just find one and bring us home / Welcome home There’s been ideas, there’s be been faith and fears, so many tears / # But through the trees you can see a light / Come on inside, it’s warm by the fire - the door’s open wide / [CH2] # [CH3+4] © 2006 Ari Ben Pickering

Simple 03:01
Simple Unravelling a ball of wool / cup is empty, saucer’s full / a cloudy view to focus through my tears so I can see / but still I catch my breath / in the middle of this mess / it’s simple, what you give is free / how simply you’re giving it to me A classic case of déjà vu / here again so far, so soon / the mirror claims I’ll never change to who I long to be / but still I feel you smile - though it’s taken me a while / it’s simple, what you give is free / how simply you’re giving it to me Counting up the fallen tears / the sum of unbelieving years / too many days, but anyways, Your love is all I need / and still I catch my breath / in all of this so blessed / it’s simple, what you give is free / how simply you’re giving it to me © 2009 Ari Ben Pickering & Ben Grace

We meet again We meet again in company of angels / Spirit fills the space between / Sharing stories mostly without words / deciphering symbols, counting numbers / # And we don’t know what we’ll be, but we will be whole / and, though darkly we see, we press for the goal / We will stand together on a mountain at the centre of the world / we will talk forever as our minds slowly unravel and unfurl / we’ll lift our hands in praise, the name of Yahweh we will raise like never before / now go, ‘til we meet again / if not Jerusalem, God knows when Just a taste, a glimpse of heaven / it’s all we need - it’s what we breathe / Drinking deeply from living water / painting pictures, counting moments # © 2011 Ari Ben & Ange Pickering
