about

I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. [Romans 12:1-2, Amplified]

released 07 September 2013
The album and its concept came about from the first song, Creed, which was inspired by Anastasia Laurence's baptism as her parents repeated 'I believe and trust in Him'. We also have this order of service: to love God and worship him in our consecrated lives (our reasonable service). Hope you find these songs encouraging in your own life's journey...

about

Richard Jensen UK

I've been writing songs for a few years now, most of which you can listen to here and on soundcloud.

All songs are written, recorded, mixed and produced by myself, and sometimes my wife chips in!

If you want to find out a bit more about me and my music, there's an interview with Treasure Vessles here: treasure-vessels.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/episode-34-richjens-aberystwyth-britain.html

Track Name: Creed
I believe in Jesus Christ, the only son of God
I believe he lived and died and that he rose again
I believe and trust in Him
He ascended into heaven, Christ our living Head
Will one day come again, to judge the living and the dead
I believe and trust in Him

Chorus:
I will trust in my Redeemer
Sing of his love that lasts for ever
Know His full and sure salvation
I will trust in Him
Though the world falls around me
I rest and know that He has found me
Christ the rock is my foundation
I will trust in Him

I believe in God the Father, creator of us all
I believe He loves creation, and rescues from the fall
I believe and trust in Him
I believe He sends his Spirit, upon his church today
Dwells in our communion, and hears us when we pray
I believe and trust in Him
Track Name: Confession/Absolution
1 John 1

If we say we know the Father
And walk in dark, we have no truth
If we walk in the light
We walk in love, His blood makes right

If we say we have no sin
We deceive ourselves, and don't know truth
If we confess our sins
He is faithful and just, to forgive and cleanse

Chorus 1:
He is light
He is light
The cross of Christ
Makes us right

So we turn to Him
In brokenness and humility
The blood of His Son
Cleanses us, and sets us free

Chorus 2:
He is light
He is light
The cross of Christ
Gives us life
Track Name: Hymn: We rest on Thee
Words: Edith G. Cherry, 1895.
Music: Finlandia, Jean Sibelius, 1899

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
We go not forth alone against the foe;
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.

Yes, in Thy Name, O Captain of salvation!
In Thy dear Name, all other names above;
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender!
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendour,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
When passing through the gates of pearly splendour,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
Track Name: Notices
Psalm 33

Shout for joy in God
You righteous and make melody
Sing him a new song
Sing him a new song
Sing him a song

The word of the Lord
Is upright and all of His work
Is done in His faithfulness
Is done in His faithfulness
In faithfulness

Chorus:
The eye of the Lord is on those who
Fear and hope in Him
Who hope in His sure and steadfast love
He notices everyone
The Lord looks down from heaven
He sees all the children of man
He fashions the hearts of them all
He notices everyone

Our soul waits for God;
He is our help and our shield
For our heart is glad in Him,
Our heart is glad in Him
We trust in Him

(Chorus)

End:
Let Your steadfast love
Be upon us
Even as we put
All of our hope in You
Track Name: Offertory
Romans 12

We lay down our lives
As a living sacrifice
Holy and acceptable
This our service reasonable

Lord make us more like You
O Lord make us like You

To this world we won't conform
But in our minds, transformed
To know the perfect will of God
To know His goodness and His love

Lord make us more like You
O Lord make us like You
Track Name: Sermon
Sermon on the mount (Matthew 5)

Seeing the crowds
He went up on the mountain
And when He sat down
All His disciples came to Him

And he opened his mouth
Opened his mouth
And taught them

Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are those who mourn, for comfort shall be given
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the world
Those who hunger and thirst, for they shall be filled
Rejoice and be glad, for great is your reward in heaven

Seeing the crowds
He went up on the mountain
And when He sat down
All His disciples came to Him

And he opened his mouth
Opened his mouth
And taught them

Blessed are the merciful, for mercy they will receive.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for God they shall see.
Those who make peace, for they shall be called sons and heirs
And the persecuted, for the kingdom is theirs.
Rejoice and be glad, for great is your reward in heaven
Track Name: Hymn: My song is love unknown
Words: Samuel Crossman, 1664
original music by John N. Ireland (1918)

My song is love unknown,
My Saviour’s love to me;
Love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be.
O who am I, that for my sake
My Lord should take frail flesh, and die?

He came from His blest throne
Salvation to bestow;
But men made strange, and none
The longed-for Christ would know:
But oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed,
Who at my need His life did spend.

Sometimes they strew His way,
And His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the day
Hosannas to their King:
Then “Crucify!“ is all their breath,
And for His death they thirst and cry.

They rise and needs will have
My dear Lord made away;
A murderer they save,
The Prince of life they slay.
Yet cheerful He to suffering goes,
That He His foes from thence might free.

In life, no house, no home
My Lord on earth might have;
In death, no friendly tomb,
But what a stranger gave.
What may I say? Heav’n was His home;
But mine the tomb wherein He lay.

Here might I stay and sing,
No story so divine;
Never was love, dear King,
Never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, in whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend
Track Name: Peace
Numbers 6:23-37, Philippians 4:6-7

The Lord be gracious to you
And bless you and keep you
The Lord be gracious to you
And keep you in His peace

It guards your heart
And guards your mind
It passes all understanding
The peace of God
Will calm the storm
And gives us joy never ending
The Lord be gracious to you
And keep you in His peace

The Lord lift up the light
Of his face upon you
The Lord lift up His light
And shine upon your life

It guards your heart
And guards your mind
It passes all understanding
The peace of God
Will calm the storm
And gives us joy never ending
The Lord be gracious to you
And keep you in His peace
Track Name: The Lord's prayer
Matthew 6

Our Father
Who is in heaven
Hallowed be Your name
Hallowed be Your name

Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us all our debts
As we have also forgiven our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil, from evil

Our Father in heaven
Hallowed be Your name
Hallowed be Your name
Track Name: Holy communion
1 John 3,4
Also: 1 Cor 3:16, Rom 8:9, Eph 2:22

We are God's temple
God's Spirit dwells within us
A tabernacle
We're being built together

Chorus
If we abide then
We are His children
If we remain in His commands
Not in the flesh as
The Spirit dwells in us
This is divine communion

If we keep on sinning
We've neither seen Him nor known Him
But we're born of heaven
And heaven dwells within us

(Chorus)

Bridge:
We are being built together
Into the dwelling place of God
Track Name: Amen
Revelation 21+22:20

Heaven and earth will pass away soon
The city of God will descend
Just like a bride is adorned for her groom
The people of God will resplend

Chorus:
How soon, how soon will You
Come to the earth and renew?
How soon, how soon will You
Come back and make all things new?

No sun or moon for the Lamb is the lamp
And the glory of God is its light
Nations will enter, with honour encamp
All in the Lamb's book of life

(Chorus)

Amen, come Lord Jesus!
Track Name: Benediction
Hebrews 13:20-21

Now may the God of peace
Who brought from the dead our Lord Jesus,
The Shepherd of the sheep,
By the blood of the eternal covenant,
Equip you with everything good
That you may do His will,
Working in us that which is pleasing in His sight,
Through Jesus Christ,
To whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
