Song of commission

Life is short, heaven is long
The lost are great, but the workers are few
We hear you calling 'Who will go for me'
We hear you calling and we give our lives to you as an offering

We go in weakness knowing your strength
We go believing we have been sent
To tell of Jesus, the King and Priest,
Saviour, Messiah, the Creator God, The Judge, the Prince of peace.

And yet we know
We stand against an enemy
Who wants to see us
Silenced and ashamed
But the Lamb of God
Has won the victory
Defeated death
And brought the devil to his knees
So now that all is left to see
Is the kingdom go to every land
And to see the King of Glory
Return in majesty

We won't waste this life, we're living for you
Though our faults are great and our strengths are few
But we are those trust not in ourselves
We are those trusting only in the great and faithful God whom we serve.

Songs from a broken heart

Songs from a broken heart are songs that I've written and I want to share with you. They are contemporary Christian songs that seek to communicate the heart of being a Christian - sorrow for sin, repentance, a love for the Lord Jesus and a deep desire to live for Him in every area of life.

I wrote most of these songs when I was living out in Turkey for a while. Returning to the UK in 2001 I got together with a few friends from Enfield Evangelical Free Church, the church where I became a Christian in 1994, to develop them further. This group included: Dave Brady, Dan and Rachel Went, Tom Reeves, Richard Maclannan and Neil Arrowsmith.

It was on my heart to be able to share these songs with others and so wanted to record them. I finally got round to recording in prestigious venues such as our front room in Enfield and the old EEFC church vestry! Those involved in recording on the CD were, Neil Arrowsmith (Guitars), Dave Brady (Drums and Percussion), Dan Went (Drums), Richard Maclannan (Keyboards/Piano), Andy Downe (Piano) and Jonty Allcock (Sax). I sung main vocals, played guitar and bass. My sister, Louise Mott, also sung main vocals on god of grace, as well as backing vocals on most tracks with a little help from my wife Tamsyn.
