about

The creation of these songs has been a process of receiving inspiration, then developing the lyrics, chords and melody lines before recording them.
Hopefully people will be blessed by the music and words from scripture contained within most of the songs.
Using Bandcamp as a vehicle for getting these songs out to the public will give everyone access to new devotional music at minimum cost.

Track Name: What's your name?
WHAT’S YOUR NAME

By Bruce Norman.

Did you know, your name has changed
When you made a covenant
With Jesus as your Lord and saviour
Your name was sin, your name was fear
Weakness and poverty
Every evil you inherited – from Adam.

Jesus took those names from you
And gave his own in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Jesus Christ, Almighty God
Wisdom and Deliverer
Word of Life, the Great I Am
Healer and the Lamb of God
Provider and our advocate
The Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
Think about the name He’s given to you
His authority - is now yours.

Saviour and the Prince of Peace
He’s our Helper, Lamb of God
Lord of Hosts and Root of David.
Comforter, Almighty One
Healer and the Son of God
Author and the finisher - of our Faith.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Jesus Christ, Almighty God
Wisdom and Deliverer
Word of Life, the Great I Am.
Saviour and the Prince of Peace
He’s our Helper, Lamb of God
Lord of Hosts and Root of David.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Thank you Jesus for our name
You gave your own in exchange
I’m now Yours.
Thank you Jesus for our name
You gave your own in exchange
I’m now Yours.
Track Name: Gethsemane
GETHSEMANE

By Bruce Norman

Won't you wait with me, in my time of great need?
My soul is sorrowful unto death. Stay awake with me.

Falling on my face I pray. Father, take this cup away.
Let it be as You, not I would have it.

Do you not have the strength to pray
and stay awake for one hour?
Pray not to be tested, for the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Again, I go away to pray, if this cup cannot be taken away
then Father, let Your will be done.

Could you not stay awake with me?
Your eyes are heavy with sleep.
I will leave you here and pray again a third time.
Father, let your will be done.

Now the hour has come.
The Son of Man is to be betrayed.
Get up, let us go. My betrayer is already close at hand.

Give me your trust, in your time of great need.
I'm always near to you, don't you know!
Stay awake with me.
Stay awake with me.
Won't you wait with me?
Track Name: Recall God's Mercies
RECALL GOD’S MERCIES

By Bruce Norman

This is why, I remind myself
And so recover, hope within my heart
Great is Your faithfulness – My God.

The Lord’s mercies are not consumed
They are renewed every morning.

This is why, I remind myself
And so recover, hope within my heart
Great is Your faithfulness – My God.

He satisfies my mouth with good things
So that my youth is renewed – like the eagles
He crowns me with loving kindness and mercy
He forgives all my sin.

This is why, I remind myself
And so recover, hope within my heart
Great is Your faithfulness – My God.


He redeemed my life from destruction
He heals all disease.

This is why, I remind myself
And so recover, hope within my heart
Great is Your faithfulness – My God.

He sets me free from oppression
He makes His way known to me
He gives me His mercy and grace
In my times of need.

(Musical interlude)

This is why, I remind myself
And so recover, hope within my heart
Great is Your faithfulness – (3 Times)
Track Name: Enter with Love
Enter with Love.

Come into His presence
With our songs of praise
Let Him know we come before Him
With repentance in our hearts
Jesus is our Saviour
This we don’t deny
For He gave His life to save us
When He died on Calvary.

Jesus is the Saviour of the world
He set us free from sin, that we may live
He now lives amongst us
And calls us to forgive
Each other, with the love that He has shown.

Come into His presence
With our gifts of life
Let Him know we love Him
By the way we live our lives
Caring for each other
Showing we’re disciples
Of the One who gave His life.

Jesus is the Saviour of the world
He set us free from sin, that we may live
He now lives amongst us
And calls us to forgive
Each other, with the love that He has shown.

(Repeat Chorus and sing last line x 3)
Track Name: God of Surprises
God Of Surprises

Intro - All of first verse

When I see day-break
When the light begins
That is when I re-alise
Your Presence here within.
The awe-inspiring first light
The dawning of a day
Is one of God’s surprises
That lightens up my way.

Here I hold the essence
Of understanding pure
You’re the God of sur-pris-es
So I will praise You more.

When we behold a new life
A ba-by is born
The wonder of this moment
Your Presence there within
The awe inspiring new life
The future now begins
It’s one of God’s surprises
Bestowed on us through love

Here I hold the essence
Of understanding pure
You’re the God of sur-pris-es
So I will praise You more.


*When we come together
We join in-to prayer
We pray for one-another
And all who come to mind
The power of this moment
The healing that goes forth
Is one of God’s surprises
We enter in as one.

Here I hold the essence
Of understanding pure
You’re the God of sur-pris-es
So I will praise You more.

Instrumental and hum *
