Sit at your feet
We believe that above mission, ministry, and productivity, the highest calling of a child of inheritance is to adore God, to know Him. This song declares that, whatever the circumstance, whatever comes against, Jesus is always available to us, we can sit at His feet and know Him and be known by Him. This song is as fun and groovy as it is powerful, and it acts as a reminder of our top priority, intimacy.

I SEE THIS NATION
This song acts as a prophetic declaration; this nation will awake to their identity, know God, and worship Him as one. We believe the heart of Children of Inheritance, and ultimately the heart of God, is reflected in this anthem, a heart that burns to see unity in the bride as they declare Jesus is the only way to be saved.
We pray this song, which marked each and every one of us during the recording process, will mark you individually, and will mark Australia during this significant time in history.

Identity is a common theme in this album, as it is such a significant topic in our world. Found declares that the searching and longing is done, Jesus is our home and we are found in His love. His presence and His love is not a fleeting moment or a distant hope, we can enjoy His company in and with us every single day. The song is fun and creative, as was the process of writing it, but this does not negate the significant weight of the words. In Him we are found.

As I GO
This song is a result of deep revelation being shared and celebrated in family. What started as an acoustic response to an encounter with God, became a powerful, funky, and fun song when the writer shared his words with family and trusted them to steward it well. Our COI family has a high value for "holding songs loosely", and allowing God to do with them whatever He wants, because we believe they were all gifts from Him. A beautiful encounter with God birthed the words of this song, but family produced the song you hear on the album.

BREAD OF LIFE
One week before our first writing retreat, Ben sat in Darwin communing with the Father, and this intimacy led to him writing Bread of Life. As Ben considered the reality of the blood and flesh and refused to move on from the simplicity of the gospel, the lyrics began to flow. The chorus came from John 6:35, where Jesus declares He is the bread of life, and those who believe in Him will never hunger or thirst. This song of adoration and thankfulness was not written to fill up an album, it was a response to the kindness of God. Ben stewarded the song well and brought it to Bendigo to share with the team, where Mat shared a prophetic poem that fitted perfectly with this prophetic song. His gentle and loving invitation to "go get the others" has touched many hearts, inviting people into a new realm of love-prompted evangelism.

lean into your love
This song was the result of a revelation of sonship, the revelation that there is no height or depth that can separate us from the love of God. The bridge, which comes straight from 2 Corinthians 5, gives the context for this life of intimacy that is available to us; we have been made completely new, and the passing away of the old means we can approach God boldly. This song is full of scriptural truth, and has the power to free people from years of bondage, as they awaken to the truth that God is not and has never been distant.

All Our Days
Like many songs from our debut album, these words came straight from scripture. This simple and beautiful hymn will delight and move hearts as it inspires people to know God and give Him all praise and glory. Jesus is moved by the worship of His radiant bride, and we believe that as a unified bride sings their everlasting praises to Him, lives will be transformed. He is worthy of all glory.

“Brighter Now” was birthed from a spontaneous activation that occurred in the first week of our COI retreat. Participants were asked to pick their favourite scripture and sing it, which resulted in a verse straight from Psalm 30:4, and a pre-chorus straight from Isaiah 9:6-7. The chorus of the song was given to a member of the family in a dream, and stewarded into a beautiful prophetic melody. The bridge of the song is inspired by 2 Cor 3, which tells us that the glory of the Old Covenant, the glory that made Moses’ face shine on the mountain, cannot come close to the glory of the New Covenant that we are now living in. We hope this significant and prophetic declaration inspires the bride to believe for more, and to experience a glory greater than they’ve ever dreamed of.

Birthed out of an intimate and creative song writing session at our first writing retreat, Saturate was both spontaneous and significant. 4 members of the family gathered, saying only, "Let's just worship God and see what happens". The first lyrics that came out of their mouths were, "Come saturate me, you're all that I need". As the presence of God flooded the room, Ben, the lead singer on the song, felt God invite him to let go of writing a song in his own ability and fully surrender to God's nearness. The next lyrics Ben sang were, "I let go, hold me close", lyrics that continually release encounter with God.

Love Pour Forth
As a family we have a high value for spontaneous worship and a high value on allowing God to be fully Himself. This song is the by-product of those values. Completely unplanned and completely surrendered, our unified hearts began to lift up a song of adoration to a deserving King. As a family we worshipped our good Father, and as we beheld His face a triumphant sound was released, the sound of children claiming their inheritance.
