Quiet My Soul - (live acoustic sessions)

by Noel Richards

SACRED PLACE Take me to your sacred place. How I long to see your face. I'll be lost in your embrace And be loved and be loved by you. Take me where your glory shines. Where your holy fire burns. Purify this heart of mine. I surrender my life to you Draw me, draw me, to your sacred place. Draw me, draw me, til i see your face. Noel & Tricia Richards © 2000 Thankyou Music ** CCLI No: 3112289 YOU LAID ASIDE YOUR MAJESTY I really want to worship you, my Lord. You have won my heart and I am yours, For ever and ever, I will love you. You are the only one, who died for me, Gave your life to set me free. So I lift my voice to you, in adoration. You laid aside your majesty, gave up everything for me, Suffered at the hands, Of those you had created. You took all my guilt and shame, When you died and rose again, Now today you reign, In heaven and earth exalted. Noel Richards © 1985 Thankyou Music ** CCLI No: 78275
QUIET MY SOUL Still my beating anxious heart Quiet my soul Calm my mind so torn apart Quiet my soul When my thoughts run unrestrained Quiet my soul When my fears can't be contained Quiet my soul Holding on to what I know Holding on I won't let go Noel & Tricia Richards © 2017 Noel & Tricia Richards Music CCLI Number: 7087017
OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN THE LORD Our confidence is in the Lord The source of our salvation. Rest is found in Him alone, The Author of creation. We will not fear the evil day, Because we have a refuge; In every circumstance we say, Our hope is built on Jesus. He is our fortress, We will never be shaken. He is our fortress, We will never be shaken. (Repeat) We will put our trust in God. We will put our trust in God. Noel & Tricia Richards Copyright © 1989 Thankyou Music ** CCLI No: 649642
TO BE IN YOUR PRESENCE To be in Your presence To sit at Your feet, Where Your love surrounds me, And makes me complete. This is my desire, O Lord, This is my desire. This is my desire, O Lord, This is my desire. To rest in Your presence, Not rushing away; To cherish each moment, Here I would stay. Noel Richards Copyright© 1991 Thankyou Music ** CCLI Number: 918122 LEANING ON THE EVERLASTING ARMS What a fellowship, what a joy divine, Leaning on the everlasting arms; What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, Leaning on the everlasting arms. Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms. O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, Leaning on the everlasting arms; O how bright the path grows from day to day, Leaning on the everlasting arms. What have I to dread, what have I to fear, Leaning on the everlasting arms; I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, Leaning on the everlasting arms. Lyrics: Elisha A. Hoffman Music: Anthony J.

ALL HEAVEN DECLARES All heaven declares, The glory of the risen Lord. Who can compare With the beauty of the Lord? Forever He will be The Lamb upon the throne. I gladly bow the knee And worship Him alone. I will proclaim The glory of the risen Lord, Who once was slain To reconcile man to God. Forever You will be The Lamb upon the throne. I gladly bow the knee And worship You alone. Noel & Tricia Richards Copyright© 1987 Thankyou Music ** CCLI Number: 120556 BY YOUR SIDE By Your side I would stay; In Your arms I would lay. Jesus, lover of my soul, Nothing from You I withhold. Lord, I love You, and adore You; What more can I say? You cause my love to grow stronger With every passing day. (Repeat) Noel & Tricia Richards Copyright© 1989 Thankyou Music ** CCLI Number: 647747I
GOD BE IN MY HEAD God be in my head, And in my understanding; God be in my eyes, And in my looking; God be in my mouth, And in my speaking; God be in my heart, And in my thinking; God be at my end, And at my departing.

In the last couple of years, we have been re-visiting some of our better known congregational worship songs.

Those who have attended any of our recent concerts, will have heard our acoustic versions of songs such as:

“All Heaven Declares”, “To Be In Your Presence” and “You Laid Aside Your Majesty”.

Talking with our producer – Caroline Bonnett – we decided it would be a great idea to capture these versions of the songs in a live studio setting, with our acoustic guitars and voices.

The only additional vocal and guitar was provided by Harun Kotch (who has played on our last couple of albums).

We wanted to record the songs in the way they are heard at our concerts and this new CD “Quiet My Soul – live acoustic sessions” - is the result.

The CD features 6 of our well known songs, a couple of new ones and a version of the famous hymn 'Leaning On The Everlasting Arms'.

The theme of this recording is about finding that place of rest and peace, that comes from our Christian faith.
