Burn in me

“Burn in me” was originally, “Burn over me”, and was inspired by the preaching of Peter Robertson, New Zealands own resident prophet, when he was preaching regularly at Thames Elim. Love that man and his heart.

Ian’s comments:

This was a really cool Rumours of Worship session (18 December 2010) because Andrew G (Ian and Tanya’s son) played quite a key role on his acoustic guitar (Epiphone performer ME/TBK – he chose it for it’s looks, but it turned out to be the bomb soundwise!!). In any case most of us had only heard the song once before. Bethany played bass, but had never heard it, and had forgotten where the Eb was, so she overdubbed her bass line after the event – she played various notes related to the Eb… but rarely the Eb itself. Tanya played keys (piano sound), but we had taken the signal in as a MIDI sound as well as audio, so we created a piano/string sound for the MIDI to play and muted the original piano audio. Simon led on his strat and Ian played his Godin. Simon, Cheryl and Tanya sang and Cheryl played acoustic guitar. (Bethany and Ian tried to find that Eb on the bass so they didn’t sing.)


The great lake seem to inspire themes of Gods’s unending Love and faithfulness. One day coming out of the full immersion of that lake, I felt inspired with these words and melody.

Who played what etc: This was recorded at a Rumours of Worship session on the 18 December 2010. Simon sang and played his strat, Cheryl sang and played keys, Bethany played bass, Tanya played keys and Ian played guitar. You can work out who plays what on guitar, by whether Simon is singing or not. If he is singing, then he plays simpler sort of rhythm with a bit of lead, but later Ian takes over the rhythm and then Simon lets rip. In the quiet you will hear Andrew’s haunting trombone….

Holy Jam

At the Rumours of Worship on the 6 November 2010 we had been singing about the holiness of God and we ended up in this pretty passionate jam around some of those ideas. The piece starts off with Cheryl praying a pray about us being committed to God and his ways. We end up digging deep and kind of declaring God’s nature over the nation.

Simon sings and plays electric guitar, Ian is on the other guitar, Daniel is on electronic drums and Cheryl prays.
