Songs to inspire Worship

Acoustic piano-led worship by independent British songwriter

About

Hello lovely people!

I am excited to share my new CD with you. Having been encouraged by friends, family and people at church, I have handpicked five of my songs, and recorded them at Stompbox Studios which is run by my talented husband, Mark Pierce.

These songs have an acoustic feel, quite raw sounding, and free flowing. We recorded my upright piano, which I love! My desire is that they draw you to Jesus, through the truth of the words and the depth of the music.

I currently live in North Wales. My husband and I head up the worship team at GloryFires Church Chester, which is also the base of MorningStar Europe.

I studied Worship and Creative Arts at Hillsong College in Sydney for a couple of years, and have had the honour of leading worship in North Wales  for over 10 years. My influences include Jason Upton, Misty Edwards, Kelanie Gloeckler and Brooke Fraser.

I hope you are blessed by listening to my songs.

Love Sarah*

Lyrics

My Value’s in Your blood

Verse 1
You’re not impressed with my performance
Neither do you need to be entertained
For it’s only by faith that I can please You Father
And that is a gift from You anyway

Chorus
My value’s in Your blood
One single drop was priceless
But You gave it all
My value’s in Your blood
You bought me with the highest price
Now I belong to You.

Verse 2
I am Your chosen possession
No longer I who live but Christ in me
That is the way that You see me Father
Holy and pleasing to You

Chorus
My value’s in Your blood
One single drop was priceless
But You gave it all
My value’s in Your blood
You bought me with the highest price
(repeat)
Now I belong to You.

Tag
Washed in the blood, protected by the blood,
Redeemed, drawn near by the blood… (repeat)

Washed in the blood, protected by the blood,
Redeemed, drawn near by the blood of Christ

Reality

Verse 1
By Your spoken word the universe was made
All of Heaven watched the Artist
Your creation is a painting of Your love
Open my eyes to see Your beauty

Chorus
Show me more of who You are
I’m longing for another glimpse of Your greatness
Show me more of who You are
I’m seeking You
Reality is found in Jesus

Verse 2
My desire Lord is to remain in You
Only ever going deeper
The more I see of You the more I will be changed
As You transform me into Your likeness

Chorus
Show me more of who You are
I’m longing for another glimpse of Your greatness
Show me more of who You are
I’m seeking You
Reality is found in Jesus

Tag
Reality is found in Jesus   (Repeat)

For our God so loved the world

Verse 1
For our God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son
Leaving Heaven’s throne above, coming down in perfect love
Taking our humanity, so that we can live as He
What a wonderful exchange, I am grateful every day!

Verse 2
Oh the cost of grace was dear, met with sorrow met with fear
Not my will but Yours be done, cried the Father’s beloved Son
Then You faced the cross alone, making sin Your very own
When You felt like giving up, passion made You take the cup.

Verse 3
Once for all You bled and died, an eternal sacrifice
Freed me fully from the law, under grace forever more
No more consciousness of sin, but the life of Christ within
Raised with Him and seated high, that is where I’ll fix my eyes!
No more consciousness of sin, but the life of Christ within
Raised with Him and seated high, that is where I’ll fix my eyes!

Tag
Thankyou, thankyou for the cross! (Repeat)

Abba Father

Verse 1
Jesus You loved me
Jesus You wanted me so much
That You came to save me
You came to heal me
You came to make me new
Make me just like You

Verse 2
Jesus You chose me
Paid my adoption fee in love
So that I can belong
Willing to suffer
Even though You knew You’d no longer be the only heir

Chorus
By the Spirit living in me I cry
Abba Father
Letting perfect love overcome all fear
Abba Father

Verse 3
Now that I am Yours
Help me to let Your love invade the way that I think
Made in Your image
You are restoring every broken part of my soul

Chorus (x2)

Bridge
There in the Garden, in turmoil and pain
You asked for the cup to be taken away
But You knew You belonged, You knew You had purpose
So with You I keep believing
With Your words I keep on praying
Not my will but Yours be done
I am crying Abba Father

Proverbs 3v5&6

Verse 1
I’ve spent too long leaning on my own understanding
I’ve spent too long leaning on my own understanding
So now I’ll lean on You
Now I’ll lean on You
Now I’ll lean on You
Now I’ll lean on You

Chorus
Be in my view ahead
Be all I see
Be my distraction
Then I won’t lose my way
I’ll follow where You lead
Teach me Your ways
I’m always safe in You

Verse 2
In all my ways I invite You come, be the centre
In all my ways I invite You come be the centre
Then You’ll direct my paths
You’ll direct my paths
You’ll direct my paths
You’ll direct my paths

Chorus
Be in my view ahead
Be all I see
Be my distraction
Then I won’t lose my way
I’ll follow where You lead
Teach me Your ways
I’m always safe in You

Bridge
In You I find my home
No matter where I go

Reviews

What a great voice Sarah has! I loved the first verse of My Value’s In Your Blood – I think the lyrics are brilliantly honest but just a little quirky which is really refreshing. I really like the arrangements too – just enough weight to carry the songs, and plenty of room for the lyrics to breathe. Nice job!

I couldn’t believe the sound of that upright piano! As soon as the opening notes to ‘My Value’s in Your Blood’, the name Elton John came to mind. That sound from his “Your Song” days is quite spookily repeated on this song about Jesus’ death for us all. ‘Reality’ has an uptempo chorus, and the song is quite infectious, leading me to multiple plays. There’s some nice guitar playing on ‘Our God So Loved the World’, from Mark. This song sounds like a traditional hymn of yesteryear. Verse after verse fix your eyes on Jesus, and I’m sure that the likes of Fanny Crosby would have been very proud of this effort. The only problem with a 5 song CD is that it ends when, really, you want to hear more. Sarah’s vocals are very pleasing on the ear throughout and the sound production does give a raw edge to it all.‘Abba Father’ and ‘Proverbs 3:5-6’ are both nice songs, and conclude what is a very enjoyable first release.

Beautiful stripped-back Worship. This EP has a wonderfully stripped back sound. Not over produced and with lyrics that take us to the heart of the message of the Christian faith. ‘For Our God so Loved the World’ hearkens back to the time of the great hymn writers, such as Charles Wesley and John Newton; a song with a great melody, but one where the importance of the lyrics are not lost amid a catchy riff or hook line; but where they take centre stage and catch the heart and imagination. Sarah’s pure vocals, staying true to both the music and its message, are full of a realness and vulnerability that is truly refreshing. The instrumentation is not too heavy and complements each song perfectly. This is a great buy for the reflective, contemplative and spiritual listener.

Definitely worth a listen. Sarah’s voice is so captivating and pure, and her songs are beautifully written. Worship songs are not usually my kind of music, but I’ve got to say, I really enjoy listening to this EP. My favourite track is ‘My Value’s In Your Blood’. Excellent production by Stompbox Studios.
