We are the worship ministry at Southland Church. Over the years we’ve written some songs out of our church experiences. These songs have been prayers, anthems and songs of praise for our church throughout our journey in seeking and following God. We are excited that other churches have been able to use these songs as well and would love to connect with you if are one of those churches. We continue to write as God leads and you can find resources for our songs here.

For Such A Time As This

“…And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” -Esther 4:14. This Album was recorded live with our church and it’s a collection of songs from the past few years where God has led us on a path of renewal. First, in our own hearts and relationship with God and second, in a calling from God to help renew the church of Canada and beyond. These songs are declarations and prayers that have come out of the humbling journey of saying yes to God and answering that call.

Great are your statutes God
Perfect are all your laws
You created them for us to know your heart
Blessed are those who walk
According to the word of God
You give life to those who obey your commands

Your word is a lamp unto my feet
Your word is the bread of life I need
Your word is truth, Your word is life
It stands alone, it will not die
Your word is Hope, Your word is the light
Jesus Your word is alive
Our hope is found in you
For you are the founding truth
Our delight is in drawing near to you
You're the beginning and the end
And your word has always been
It will lead your church back to you again
We're staking our lives, on what it says
Our God is who, he says he is
No one can change, the truth will remain
There's no other name, by which we are saved
Jesus rise, and take your place
As the only truth, the life, the way
Cleanse your bride, Renew your church
Together we'll stand, on your word

I shall have no other Gods before you
I will not put myself before you
You deserve my life, my all
You deserve a faithful child
I will count the cost, to follow you
And count the world as loss
You are the treasure I seek, and all I need
Come abide in me
The more I seek you, I will find you
The more I know you, I will love you God
Sometimes it feels so hard
But I know you’re worth it God
So I will lay down my life
A living sacrifice | To know Jesus
Chords and Lyrics

When we are weak You are strong
Your joy is the strength to carry on
And when we are worried, You are peace
Lord You are all that we need

Lord help us walk with You
Guide us in all we do
Together we Ask, together we seek and receive
Lord help us keep the faith
Through every trial we face
Together we run to finish the race for You
Where we are broken You make whole
Your love brings healing to our souls
When we are hopeless You are hope (And so we know)
We cannot do this on our own
Our hope is built on nothing less (On Christ the solid rock we stand)
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness (All other ground is sinking sand)
We dare not trust the sweetest frame (On Christ the solid rock we stand)
But wholly lean on Jesus name (All other ground is sinking sand)
Great is Your faithfulness
In every circumstance
You hear every prayer and answer with care Father
Chords and Lyrics
Zac Pearson
Father you have loved us, But we have not loved you
We say we’ll give you all but give you less
Jesus, you have died for us, But we will not die for you
We’ve given in to all that pleasures us
My desire is to be pure in heart, to sow into your spirit lord
To ascend the hill of the lord
To live the life you call us to, to walk in righteousness with you
To live out your word
Our hearts cry out to you, We will return to you
It’s you we need, so desperately
And we will Honour you, We’ll give up this world for you
Your favour we seek, we’re on our knees
We will love you God, and serve you only God
Your name we’ll revere, Your voice we will hear

When she's crying, When she's hurting
When she's fallen and can't go on
When she's broken into pieces
In her mourning, has lost her song
Who will help the church
The one that Christ loves
Who will rise up
How long will we wait
How much will it take
Who will rise up
When she's crawling Through the ashes
And she's calling Out for help
When she's reaching From her kneeling
She needs strength now Beyond herself
We will rise up
We will rise
We will help the church
The one that Christ loves
We will rise up
How long will we wait
How much will it take
We will rise up
For every brother who has need
For every sister on her knees
We'll show the mercy we've received in our lives
And all the world will finally see
The love that makes a family
If he's alive in you and me, We will rise
Chords and Lyrics

He has led us to this place
For such a time as this
He is calling us to rise
To be the salt and light
So we will face what’s ahead
Press on until the end
For we know He will prevail
Our God will never fail
We pledge our Allegiance
We will serve only Jesus
We are here for such a time as this
We Will Seek first his kingdom
We will not be defeated
We are here for such a time as this
We’ll be the light of the world
We’ll be the salt of the earth
We will rise to the call of our king
We will not back down
We will stand our ground
We declare - We are the church
Chords and Lyrics

We open our hearts to receive
All that you are, all that you are
Humbled we come to your throne
To find true life, hidden in you
Heavenly father, release your spirit
We are ready, we receive Him
So let your kingdom come
Let your will be done
On earth, as it is in heaven
Set us apart, set us apart
Give us Your eyes, give us Your heart
For it is time to seek the Lord
That he may rain his righteousness on us
Make us Holy
Make us Righteous in your eyes
Purify your bride
Chords and Lyrics

Lord, help me set aside the things that hold me back
I want to walk in Your ways
Help me to lay down every idol in my life
I want to walk in Your ways
Spirit, come consume my every thought
Create in me a holy heart
That is set apart
Lord, come and search me deep within
Renew my love for you again
I want to know Your heart
So I can walk in Your ways
Lord, when I’m weary fill me with Your strength
I want to walk in Your ways
Though I may stumble, help me back up to my feet
I want to walk in Your ways
Your grace has rescued me
I’ve found life in You, I’m alive with You
Your love has set me free
I’ll walk with you wholeheartedly
Chords and Lyrics
Dana Herron, Zac Pearson, Ray Yoder, Adam Buhler
