Whiter than the snow

I want to thank you today
For forgiveness, forgiveness
I want to live every day
For your glory, for your glory

For though my sins were as scarlet
You've washed me whiter than the snow
For though my sins were as scarlet
You've washed me whiter than the snow
Whiter than the snow

Blessed is that man whose sin
You will not hold against him
By your grace I'm one such man
By your mercy, by your mercy

No it wasn't my idea
Nor my initiative
But only by your grace
Poured down from above
Yes I called upon your name
And you turned and rescued me
But from beginning to the end
It's by your grace that I've been redeemed

And so what else can I say
Here's my life Lord, take my life Lord
Let it be Yours today
And every day for You my Saviour

Whiter than the snow

I remember very clearly the Lord speaking to me though Romans 4: 7-8. This was one of the first times that I felt assurance that the Lord had forgiven my sin. That was a beautiful moment.

"Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them."

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.
