about

Malcolm Gordon Dunedin, New Zealand

Hailing from the Deep South of New Zealand, Malcolm now finds himself in exile, ministering in the North Island. Having stepped out of fulltime pastoral ministry to give space for the music to flourish, this is where you can hear the new demos and the studio albums.

Mixing deep reflection with uplifting melody and harmony, Malcolm's music makes room for something deeper to happen in our souls

Track Name: Sam and Malcolm Gordon - Hey Mary
Hey Mary, there’s an angel in your house! Said, ‘Mary have I got some news for you. You seem to think you’re nothing much but Heaven’s coming close enough to touch, yeah! Hey Mary, God is coming here through you!

There is no such thing as ordinary now God is here
Every life and breath is blessed, you never know when God might appear
Track Name: Hannah Gibson - Mary's Response
Mary, what was your response?
Mary, what was your response?

You were visited, disrupted, changed.
And you were esteemed, treasured, and chosen.

You were confused, enlightened, awestruck.
And you were assured, reassured, confident.

Mary, what then was your response?

Chorus
My soul glorifies the Lord,
I am bursting with praises for the Lord!
With a spirit of pure delight,
I rejoice in God my Saviour.

He has remembered me,
He see's me as I am, and I am blessed!
I am blessed to be a blessing,
for more than my own generation!

For He has done great things.
Yes He has done GREAT THINGS
Track Name: Zoe Henderson and Tessa Macaulay - We are held by grace
We are held by grace
Humble hearts cast open
Our souls at rest in the fullness of God
We are held, we are held by grace.
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon - Simeon's Song
I'm just an old man
With an ancient conviction
That God is troubled by our pain

I have no wisdom
Just a fool's expectation
That God will come to our aid

Through prayer and through pain
My hope has not strayed
Keep watch with me...
My soul aches for dawn
My heart stretched and worn
Keep watch with me...
O my Lord
O my friend

I'm just a lone voice
Frail in the darkness
But the night can only last so long

I'm just a watchman
Eyes to the distance
Waiting for heaven's light to show

CHORUS

He's just a small child
From nowhere special
But something tells me, this is it

My heart's desire
My world's salvation
A candle in this darkness has been lit

CHORUS

God can I go to sleep now
I've stayed awake to the sunrise
With my failing eyes, I see through Love's disguise
In my arms I hold the world.
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon - God's Spirit is on me
God’s Spirit is on me

1. God’s Spirit is on me
God’s breath is within me
God’s driving wind behind me
So the blind can see again
So the bound are free again
God’s Spirit is on me now

2. God’s Spirit is on you
God’s breath is within you
God’s driving wind behind you
So good news can find the poor
For the Lord is good to all
God’s Spirit is on you now

3. God’s Spirit is on us
God’s breath is within us
God’s driving wind behind us
Calling us and gracing us
Gifting us and placing us
God’s Spirit in on us now.
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon - Into the Deep
Into the deep

Draw us from the shallows
Out into the deep
Our faith was weak and hollow
But its strengthened in our need
Though the waters overwhelm us
Though the shore be far from sight
From the storm you call forth stillness
From the darkness you call light

Even the wind and the waves
Will listen to your voice
Oh speak your love and your grace
And calm the storm within

Lead us from the certain
Into your mystery
With fearless love abounding
You ride the raging seas
Though the waters overwhelm us
Though the shore be far away
You walk on waves to find us
Your hands reach out to save

Even the wind and the waves
Will listen to your voice
Oh speak your love and your grace
And calm the storm within

Far beyond the headland
Where fear and freedom meet
The drowning and the dying
You haul us to our feet
Though the waters overwhelm us
Though the shore is far behind
Drifting daughter’s you will rescue
Shipwrecked son’s you will find

Even the wind and the waves
Will listen to your voice
Oh speak your love and your grace
And calm the storm within
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon and Adrian Taylor - O God our Father
O God our Father

1. O God our Father
Who can draw faith from us
Until we hide in the shadows no longer
Strengthen us now
Life that will never fade.

2. Jesus our brother
Who can draw faith from us
Until we hide in the shadows no longer
Strengthen us now
Life that will never fade.

3. O Holy Spirit
Who can draw faith from us
Until we hide in the shadows no longer
Strengthen us now
Life that will never fade.
Track Name: Zoe Henderson, Tessa Macaulay and Sophie Macaulay - Lord of the Harvest
Oh Lord of the Harvest

Oh Lord of the Harvest
You call us to our feet
Will You prepare Your people
As You prepare your fields to reap

You call us as your body
Many parts becoming one
Will you call us together
To the work You have begun

Giver of Life, make us one
And as You send, we find a home
These sacred spaces that we share
We proclaim that You are here

You’ve paved the road before us
Though it’s not what we’d expect
In the ordinary places
We’ll live humbly and be blessed

For the Kingdom of God is rising
Like the sun behind the hills
it’s a light that won’t be hidden
and we’ll shine it further still”

Father of all, make us one
And as You send, we find a home
These sacred spaces that we share
We proclaim that You are here

A Kingdom without borders
A loaf of bread to share
These homes becomes Your temple
And we will find You there

Father of all, make us one
And as You send, we find a home
These sacred spaces that we share
We proclaim that You are here
Track Name: Jordan Redding - You are our Reconciler
Go out to the darkest place,
Bring them in -- the blind and lame,
All the lost and broken too,
Gathered in to hear the truth...

You are our reconciler.

Chorus
Draw us nearer, Lord,
You're calling us in --
Turning none away,
Your abundant grace
Is seeking us out
You’re seeking us out

Go out into the broken world,
All with Christ who goes before us.
There he is with sick and poor:
This our God, the living truth...

You are our reconciler.

Chorus
Draw us nearer, Lord,
You're calling us in --
Turning none away,
Your abundant grace
Is seeking us out
You’re seeking us out

Come and see if God’s house will ever be full
Christ Jesus turns none away.

You are our reconciler.
You are our reconciler.

Chorus
Draw us nearer, Lord,
You're calling us in --
Turning none away,
Your abundant grace
Is seeking us out

Draw us nearer, Lord,
You're calling us in --
Turning none away,
Your abundant grace
Is seeking us out
You’re seeking us out
Track Name: Margaret Benton - Come to the Table
Come to the table

Everything is ready

Come to the table

Christ is calling you


Come to the table

His arms are open

Christ is calling out to you

Come to the table

Everything is ready

Come to the table

Christ is calling you


Come in the dark times

Jesus is waiting

Come now, He longs to welcome you

Look now to Jesus

Welcomes you to your Father’s home
Track Name: Len Montgomery - The Invitation
INVITATION
Look beyond your doors and windows
Jesus is calling us to life
Welcome in your friends and your neighbours, and the strangers on the street outside.

Recognise your suffering brother
And the ones who are lost to despair
and all the sleepless, grieving mothers
a table awaits you there

God's heart goes out to everyone
regardless of state or need
To those who walk in the shadows, dark paths and alleyways

This invitation is for you
This invitation is for me
This invitation is for all
who want to be set free

Come now for everything is ready
prepared and all paid for in full
There's a place set out in your name
And still there's room for more

Jesus pours love out on everyone
regardless of state or need
To those who walk in the shadows, dark paths and alleyways

This invitation is for you
This invitation is for me
This invitation is for all
who want to be set free

Come whether you're near or far
Come in now just as you are

Leave behind all fear and sadness
hatred and disdain
forget your unbelief and anger
relinquish your sin stain
cast aside your cares and worries
give them all to him
receive the bread and cup of kindness
rejoice in Jesus name

This invitation is for you
This invitation is for me
This invitation is for all
who want to be set free

Jettison all greed and envy
malice and discord
make a stand for peace and justice
for Jesus Christ is Lord

Cling to his sovereign promise
that he will come again
truly we will share the banquet
with heaven's most Holy one
Track Name: Roseanne Shewan - Ready for you
Ready for you

The table is ready, the banquet is spread
The Father's invitation open wide
Jesus is calling, he bids us to come
Now is the time we must decide

Ready for me, Lord I'm ready for you
Ready for you Lord in my life
I'm coming to your table
I'm running while I'm able
Ready to feast upon the banquet of your love

I'm ready to find the weak
To search for those asleep
Ready to look for those who are ready to find you

Ready for you, yes I'm ready for you
Ready for you Lord in my life
I'm coming to your table
I'm running while I'm able
Ready to feast upon the banquet of your love
Ready for you, yes I'm ready for you
Hungry for you to feed me Lord
Hungry for you to feed me Lord
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon - How can we be at home?
How can we be at home?
How can we be at peace?
When each empty place
And each empty seat
Cries out to us at this homecoming feast.
How can we be at home
When some of our family are lost?
Track Name: Hannah Gibson - Like a Child
Create in me a humble heart
Take my hand, guide me back to the start
A child’s love, a child’s faith
Trusting and learning seeking your face

Lord take me to a place…

Where I can run to meet you
Like a child full of joy, in awe of you
Even with all my failings
You’re eager for me Lord, mould me
Like a child, teach me to depend on you

Create in me a thankful heart
It’s all in your strength, take my pride apart
A child’s dependence, a child’s embrace
In you we’re found Lord, saved by your grace

Lord take me to a place…

Where I can run to meet you
Like a child full of joy, in awe of you
Even with, all my failings
You’re eager for me Lord, mould me
Like a child, teach me to depend on you

We seek to become children,
In our attitude and faith
We are God’s blessed sons and daughters,
We thank you today….

For we can run to meet you
Like a child full of joy, in awe of you
Even with, all my failings
You’re eager for me Lord, mould me
Like a child, teach me to depend on you
Track Name: Malcolm Gordon - Hearts burn on
For our hearts burn on

Keeping step with this Holy Stranger 

We are found between our grief

And this grace at the table

Let the flames burn bright

Let the pilgrim and prodigal gather 

In warmth and welcome

To this holy fire

Let the beacons of welcome blaze 

With forgotten saints we raise

A song of peace, a cry for release 

For God is here to save

Our God will make a way

Give us courage to walk the Way 

Share the table with all who stray 

And finding there a saviour near 

For God is here to stay

Our God will make a way

When the call draws us from home 

With a pilgrim’s trust we roam

No place to rest, but ever blessed 

The way of Christ is shown

We will never be alone.
