Ancient and modern! Something old, something new. The three traditional hymns recorded for this EP have been given an inspirational new interpretation and fresh approach. 'The King Of Love' was first worked on in London for a TV broadcast, and this updated version with additional percussion has also been remastered. 'When I Survey The Wondrous Cross' and 'Take My Life And Let It Be' are both well known hymns that have been reworked with new melodies illuminating the familiar texts. The additional acoustic mix of 'There Is a Green Hill' is a bonus track and can either be downloaded free, or you can name a price that you'd be happy to give.

Track Name: The King of Love
The King of Love my Shepherd is
Whose goodness faileth never
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth
And where the verdant pastures grow
With food celestial feedeth

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed
But yet in love He sought me
And on His shoulder gently laid
And home rejoicing brought me

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee dear Lord beside me
Thy rod and staff my comfort still
Thy cross before to guide me

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
Track Name: When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ my God
all the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood

See from His head, His hands, His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my life, my soul, my all.
Track Name: Take My Life And Let It Be
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my King
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose

Take my will and make it Thine
It shall be no longer mine
Take my heart it is Thine own
It shall be Thy royal throne

Take my love my Lord I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be
Ever only all for Thee
Track Name: There Is A Green Hill (acoustic version - bonus track)
There Is A Green Hill

There is a green hill in a far away country
It stands near a city, outside a wall
Where Jesus our Saviour, the King of all Glory
Suffered and died to save us all

I may not know of the pain of His passion
But I believe that in my place He stood
That I may know freedom, and live in forgiveness
For I am redeemed by His great love

There was no other good enough
Willing to pay the price of sin
For He was the only One who could reach out
And unlock the gates of heaven to let us in

So very dearly Jesus has loved us
All He would ask is that we love Him too
And trust Him for all that this life lays before us
That we would try His work to do
