1. Break Our Hearts Again
    By: Paul Demer

    A hauntingly beautiful melody and poetic lyrics that can be used as a lament, a prayer of longing for deeper union and response to God, and that ends with a resolve to "lay our armour down." 

    Note:  The sheet music for this song is in a key that is significantly lower than the artist's recording in order to make the range more accessible for congregational singing.  If you purchase the sheet music and would like it also in the original key, please contact CMP and we will send it to you at no additional charge.

  2. Find Our Way To Love
    By: Gary Rand (Producer)
    By: Hannah Rand
    By: The Many

    This is a brand new song from Gary, Lenora, and Hannah Rand and their worship band, "The Many."  Among other things this song is their powerful, soulful, and faithful musical response to the violence and death of Charleston, Paris, and Orlando.  The song is a lament, a proclamation of the biblical Truth that whatever we do to someone else, we ultimately do to ourselves, and ends with the hopeful reminder that God "so loves the world" that we can always "find our way to love."  

    Piano arrangement coming soon!

  3. Forgive Us
    By: The Many

    From Gary Rand of "The Many..." "Forgive Us is a song of lament and confession. It’s a song to sing when the words don’t come; when our efforts to help, or do right, or even pray seem to come up empty. The songs says, “we don’t know how to pray here, stay here. All we hope is that you’re here.” It’s a song that resonates with Romans 8:26-27, where Paul speaks of the Spirit interceding for us when we don’t have the words." Learn More

  5. Let's Confess It
    By: Brian McLaren

    A song to help us confess what's "off" in a way that's Real and True and soulful and kind of gritty. The verses are in spoken word format, and there is a sung refrain for the congregation. While the spoken word poetic form gives this a contemporary edge, the song ends with the traditional liturgical prayer of confession which many will recognize. Learn More

  6. Love Anyway
    By: Brian McLaren

    From Brian McLaren:  "In the Lord's Prayer, we not only acknowledge our sins ("Forgive us our trespasses") but also our hurts ("those who trespass against us.")  These days we have many songs about our sins, but few songs that acknowledge our hurts.  That was my goal in this song."

    From CMP: Brian McLaren was on a road Sabbatical for the first 8 months of 2016.  During this time away from the grind of constant travel and preparation for live events Brian wrote, rewrote, compiled, and recorded demos (not finished studio recordings) of 21 songs.  9 of these demos are currently available here on the CMP site, and we are in the process of creating lead sheets and piano arrangements for them.  If you would like to purchase this entire collection of Brian's demo's, lyrics, and some notes he wrote about each song (21 songs for $18), please email Bryan Sirchio, CMP Lead Designer, and he will send you a link you can use to purchase Brian's entire collection.

  8. Tear Down The Walls
    By: The Many

    Tear Down the Walls is part protest song, part lament and and part personal confession. It gives voice to our laments and our anger at the real world walls that divide us while at the same time allowing us to sing our confession for the walls we build between ourselves and others. The last line of the song is a prayer for our churches, our nation, and our personal relationships. “Tear down the walls … so I can see you… So you can see me, too.” Learn More
