Words: Adore the Lord your God –
He loves you
Confess your sin to Him –
He forgives you
Thank Him for His mercy –
He conquered death
Surrender your desires –
He is Life
Background: Created using a long known formula for prayer which I was taught during confirmation classes at the age of fourteen. The traditional words are Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication and they make a good framework for any time with God.

The Lord’s Prayer circa. 1400AD
Oure Fader in hevene riche,
Thin name be iblesced evere iliche,
Led us Loverd into thi blisce,
Let us nevre thin riche misse.
Let us Loverd underfon
That thin wille be evere idon
Also hit is in hevene
In erthe be hit evene,
The hevene bred that lasteth ay
Gif us Loverd this ilke day,
Forgif us Loverd in our bone
Al that we haven here misdone,
Also wisliche ase we forgiven
Ilwiles we in this worlde liven
Al that us is here misdo
And we biseken the thereto,
Led us Loverd to non fondinge
And sscild us from alle evel thinge.

Translation for ‘Our Father’:
Our Father in heaven rich,
Thy name be blessed I wish,
Lead us Lord into thy bliss,
Let us never thy riches miss.
Let us Lord accept alone
That thy will be ever done
Also as it is in heaven
In earth may it be even,
The heaven bread that lasteth today
Give us Lord this same day,
Forgive us Lord to our bone
All that we have here misdone,
Also as we wisely forgave
While we in this world live
All that here us misdo
And we beseech thee too,
Lead us Lord to our testing
And shield us from all evil thing.
Adapted using a medieval dictionary & a bit of
imagination - language scholars please excuse any
with the old:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.

Music & Narration based on the abolition of the Slave trade and to raise awareness of contemporary Human Trafficking.
Narration by Sir Tom Courtenay. Vocals by Coco Mbassi, Sadie Chamberlain & Paul Field
My soul waits for the Lord,
More than those who watch for the morning,
More than those who watch for the morning.
Out of the depths I have cried to you, O Lord hear my voice.
With my whole heart I want to praise you, O Lord hear my voice.
If You Lord should mark iniquities
Who could stand?
Who could stand?
I will wait for the Lord, my soul waits
And in His word do I hope.
Based on Psalm 130 these words were written by Larry & Pearl Brick for a song called ‘I Will Wait’ on their 1989 album ‘See-through Servant’. Northumbria Community use the song in their Evening Prayer liturgy.

Anna's first solo album includes some of her 'signature' pieces as well as some songs of her own. Some of you will recognise familiar words from the Complines in Celtic Daily Prayer drawn from Carmina Gadelica and other traditional sources. Here they are set to Anna's own music which has emerged over the years of saying and singing these night-time prayers with her children, Joel and Martha. Anna says, 'I hope you will want to play this album often and that it will capture something of the rhythm of the tides, the sounds of the island and also its stillness.'
