about

How can we lament, how can we find hope, how can we cry out to God, how can we get the courage to work for justice and peace, in the kind of world we’re living in right now? A world of hatred and violence, of greed and fear, and walls...so many walls.

The Many believe we need to sing together. And we need music that’s honest, full of questions, full of faith and doubt, full of longing. That’s the kind of music they crafted in this new album. Not easy answers. Not easy praise. Not songs about a God who only loves some of us. Not head in the clouds “worship music” - but feet on the ground, heart in hands, scars revealed, wild and holy, liturgically-seasoned music of resistance, reconciliation and restoration. Music made for people to sing with each other, in churches, in living rooms, in basements and bars...anywhere, everywhere... in spirit and in truth.

With lyrics drawing from the ancient wisdom of Scripture, from headlines, and from their own experience, musically these songs celebrate the diversity of the four lead singers– the soulful sincerity of Darren Calhoun, the raw bluesiness of Kerry Anne Pritchard, the gospel-soaked roots of Leslie Michele, and the pure, emotional indie pop of Hannah Rand. Together, this uncommon collective of songwriters, poets, activists, uneasy prophets and just-one-foot-in- front-of-the-other Jesus-followers, remind us again and again that we aren’t alone, God so loves every one of us, and we all belong here.

The Many is the house band of The Plural Guild, a gathering of writers, musicians, artists, liturgists and thinkers creating words, music and ritual for a new day, a new way.

Track Name: Love Is Here
Your love is here.


Verse 1:
I feel empty
I am worn out
There’s so much
I cannot see.

But your love, they
Say, has open arms
Your grace is
Waiting for me

Oh I want
to rest in
those strong arms
Yes I want
to trust
in my heart of hearts
That your love
That your love is here
That your love is here.


Chorus:
So I will sing.
Your love
is here
And it’s greater than our doubts.
You love is greater than our fear
Yes, I will sing
Your love
is here
And it sees our broken hearts
And somehow it can heal
Your love
It is here

Verse 2:
I am scared
I am scarred.
There’s so much
I can’t believe.

But your love, they
Say, is like a river
Mercy will just
Wash over me

Oh I want
to rest in
your strong arms
Yes I want
to trust
in my heart of hearts
That your love
That your love is here
That your love is here.



Chorus:
So I will sing:
Your love
is here
And it’s greater than our doubts.
You love is greater than our fear
Yes I will sing:
Your love
is here
And it sees our broken hearts
And somehow it can heal
Your love
It is here



Bridge

We don’t have to be strong
We don’t have to be sure
We don’t have to be right
We don’t have to see any blinding lights
We can just be.


Chorus:
Yes, we will sing:
Your love
is here
And it’s greater than our doubts.
You love is greater than our fear
Oh, we will sing:
Your love
is here
And it sees our broken hearts
And somehow it can heal
Your love

Track Name: All Belong Here
All Belong Here – Communion Song

1.
When you’re not sure who you really are
When all you feel is the shape of your scars
And you have more wounds than you can count
Open your eyes, look all around
You aren’t alone, this is your home

Chorus:
Come and remember who you are here
Do this to remember who I am
Come and remember you belong here
All belong here


2.
When you don’t know how to forgive
When locked doors seem like the only way to live
And you’ve got more questions than you can count
Open your eyes, look all around
You aren’t alone, this is your home


Chorus:
Come and remember who you are here
Do this to remember who I am
Come and remember you belong here
All belong here

Bridge
At this table come as you are
Broken and bleeding’s ok
At this table eat and be filled
Come and drink in this grace.


Chorus:
Come and remember who you are here
Do this to remember who I am
Come and remember you belong here
All belong here

lyrics: Lenora Rand
music: Hannah Rand

We wish we could walk away

Nothing seems to work.

Chorus:
Forgive us
Forgive us.
We know not what we do.

We don’t know what to do.

What’s wrong. What’s right.
Hard to see without sight.
Blindly we come to You

Chorus:
Forgive us
Forgive us.
We know not what we do.
Be with us
Be with us.
We don’t know what to do.


Bridge:

Seek Justice.

Walk humbly, here.

Lovely Needy People

Verse 1
Oh you prisoners in your cells
All you in private hells

All: Kyrie eleison

All you hungry and ignored
Who thirst for something more

All: Kyrie eleison

You who feel so lost but are afraid of being found
You who are in chains but are afraid to live unbound

All: Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison.

Chorus
For all us lovely needy people
Living in this world that’s spinning
Round and round and round
Round and round and round

Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy

All: Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison

Verse 2
Oh you children ripped and torn
Battered, bruised and worn

All: Kyrie eleison

All who look hate in the face
Locked in hate’s embrace

All: Kyrie eleison

You who’ve given up and can’t see anywhere but down
You who’ve lost all hope and think it’s nowhere to be found

All: Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison.

Chorus

Chant
All: There is mercy enough, there is grace enough.
There is love enough for all of us.

Track Name: Forsaken
Forsaken


Why have you forsaken us?
Where have you gone?
Why have you forsaken us?
How can we go on?


Verse 1
There’s a woman who has lost her child
And a man who’s lost his way.
There’s a boy who’s keeping it inside
And a girl who cannot pray.

Pre-chorus
Why have you forsaken us?
Where have you gone?
Why have you forsaken us?
How can we go on?

Chorus
We search for your face
Search for your grace
We want to follow your way
Why have you forsaken us
Where have you gone?



Verse 2
There’s a man who says he cannot breathe
And another with a gun
There’s a family that’s left everything
Just exiles on the run


Pre-chorus
Why have you forsaken us?
Where have you gone?
Why have you forsaken us?
How can we go on?

Chorus
We search for your face
Search for your grace
We want to follow your way
Why have you forsaken us
Where have you gone?



Bridge
There’s a man forsaken on a cross
Body broken in two
There’s a God hanging on a cross
Who feels it all too

Crying with us, dying with us.
Praying with us. Holding us too.

We search for your face
Search for your grace
We want to follow your way


Lyrics: Lenora Rand
Music: Hannah Rand
Track Name: Find Our Way To Love
Find Our Way to Love


When I hurt you, I hurt me
When I push you, I push me
When I curse you, I curse me
I weep with you, As you weep with me.

When I starve you, I starve me
When I bomb you, I bomb me
When I kill you, I kill me
I die with you, as you die with me

Chorus
There is no “other”
There’s only us
On this trembling, tender earth.
And all of heaven is here with us
When we find our way to love,
When we find our way to love.

When I hate you, I hate me
When I lose you, I lose me
When I find you, I find me
I live with you, as you live with me.

Chorus

Coda
God so loves the world.
God so loves the world.
God so loves every one of us
So we can find our way to love,
So we can find our way to love.

Words by Lenora Rand.

Track Name: Into Mercy
Into Mercy

Verse 1
All I have to give today
are questions
All I have to give are all my doubts
All that I can give You are the sorrows
No one knows about.

Chorus:
But You take me as I am
You take me where I am
You take me into mercy
And you don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on me


Verse 2
All I have to give today
Are failures
All I have to give’s a broken heart
All that I can give You are the wrong turns
That have left me marked

Chorus:
But You take me as I am
You take me where I am
You take me into mercy
And you don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on me
Never give up on me


Bridge
You love me through the shadows
Through the desert
Through the night
And you take me where I am
And lead me into mercy’s light

Chorus

Track Name: Only Grace
Only Grace

1. Things are broken here.
Things are shared
Things are carried here
Hearts bow in prayer

Chorus
It is grace, only grace
That brings us here, holds us together here.

It is grace, only grace
That brings us here, holds us all together here.
All together here.

2. Things are dying here
Things are torn
Things are growing here
And burdens borne.

Chorus

Bridge
Amazing grace, hear the sound.
Here is where hope is found.

Track Name: Love Rises
Love Rises – Easter Song


It seems the world’s so broken
So little to have hope in.
Sometimes we can’t believe
the dawn will ever come.

At times we feel so torn up
Our hearts are simply worn out.
Sometimes we can’t believe
the dawn will come.

Pre-Chorus:
But then there comes the day
And stones are rolled away

Chorus:
Today is the day
Today is the day
When Love finds a Way
Today is the day
Today is the day
Love has the final say.
Today is the day
Love rises….love rises…

Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia
Love rises.

Verse 3
It feels like we can’t breathe here
And hate is all we see clear
Sometimes we can’t believe the dawn will ever come.

Pre-Chorus:
But then there comes the day
When stones are rolled away


Chorus:
Today is the day
Today is the day
When Love finds a Way
Today is the day
Today is the day
Love has the final say.
Today is the day
Love rises….love rises…

Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia
Love rises.

Bridge:
Love is stronger than hate
Love is greater than fear
Love can change death to life
Love…rises.


Lyrics: Lenora Rand
Music: Gary Rand, Rob Wildeboer
Track Name: We Stand
We Stand

We’ve all been hurt.
And yes we feel confused
So much is wrong
But is there
anything we can do?

Where is the hope?
When there’s so much pain
So much is broken
Can it be made whole
Again?

We can just stay in this place
Or go our separate ways.
We can just stay in this place
Or go.
Or we can stand
We can stand
together with love.

We stand, we stand
We’re gonna stand with love
We’re gonna stand with love
We stand, we stand
We’re gonna stand with love
We’re gonna stand with love

Let us not sit in judgment,
Or only bow in prayer
Let us not leave in anger,
Or stay in our despair.
But by the grace of God,
Let us stand together with love.

Lyrics: Lenora Rand
Music: Hannah Rand
