about

Laylah is a collection of smooth, Christian jazz songs for evening and night time.

Recorded during a concert in England, 2017.

With its mellow, atmospheric, piano-led allure, Christian songwriter Natalie Kendel presents an album reminiscent of the sounds of Norah Jones, Katie Melua, Fernando Ortega, and Eva Cassidy. With velvety vocals and magnetic lyrics, Laylah is the perfect album to put on at the end of the day.

Laylah means "night" in Hebrew.

Track Name: Psalm 92
Based on Psalm 92, a psalm of David for Shabbat

It is to good to give thanks to Adonai
and to sing your name, O Elyon
To the melody of a sounding lyre
and to the music of a harp

Oh, the foolish cannot know
nor the senseless see
For the wicked sprout like grass
but your joy remains

It is to good to give thanks to Adonai
and to sing your name, O Elyon
To the melody of a sounding lyre
and to the music of a harp

Tell every morning of his grace
faithfulness at night
What you make brings joy to us
Let your praises rise

It is to good to give thanks to Adonai
and to sing your name, O Elyon
To the melody of a sounding lyre
to the music of a harp
Track Name: Abide with Me
Abide with me, fast falls the evening time 

The darkness deepens Lord be by side

When other helpers fail and comforts flee

Help of the helpless, Lord, abide with me


As I put down the burdens of the day

You’ll bring renewal in your company

Change and decay I have no need to fear

Your love it changes not you’re always
 near
Abide with me

You know my story and you know my needs
There is no silent prayer which you cannot hear
I need not worry what my future holds
Oh my Provider you are always close
Track Name: Orbit
Orbiting 'round the sun
planets they dance
each one is bathing in its light

The moon circle round the world
showing its pale face
drawn by the gravity of Earth

So I go 'round
the centre of my life
Lord, I orbit around you

You who are life itself
we bathe in your light
dancing in dependency on you

So I go 'round
the centre of my universe
Lord, I orbit around you
Track Name: We, like Stars and Seas
And we like stars and seas
will glimmer in that knowledge
Above the tides of fear
we hold to this law

Fight fear with love
Fight evil with good

And we have dared recall
above this iron carpet
the stars have not forgot
who placed them there

Fight fear with love
Fight evil with good
Track Name: In the Ancient Days of Israel
In the ancient days of Israel
as the Friday evening would come
people stopped their work
gathered at the temple

And they sang
the psalms of David
filled the temple court with song
By the glow of a thousand lanterns
as a million stars came out

In the city of Jerusalem
as the Friday light slowly died
in the house of God
near to the Shekinah

And they sang
the psalms of David
filled the temple court with song
By the glow of a thousand lanterns
as a million stars came out
Track Name: Hymn by Candlelight
I sing a hymn by candlelight
the flame is softly glows
An evening chill has settled in
the window's drawn and closed

Now friends and family
gather round
gather round
its glow

We read the words of Yeshua
and share the bread we have
And pray that Yah brings rest to us
the Spirit of his love

Now friends and family
gather round
gather round
its glow

Here we have told
stories of old
God bless this house

Now friends and family
gather round
gather round
its glow
Track Name: This Foolish Mutiny
Today I played God
hailed myself as king
Today I played safe
put myself in harm's way

Oh Lord, I'm done
lusting after your job
Tonight I put away
this foolish mutiny

Today I played God
crowned my own ways and thoughts
And with gavel in hand
dealt out judgements and plans

Oh Lord, I'm done
lusting after your job
Tonight I put away
this foolish mutiny

Today I let go of my claim to God's throne

Oh Lord, I'm done
lusting after your job
Tonight I put away
this foolish mutiny
Track Name: In the Beginning
(Based on Genesis 1)

In the beginning
God made the heavens and Earth
It happened by words he spoke
in the beginning

In the beginning
the Earth it was empty and void
The Spirit of God he was
over the waters

"Let there be light"
and there was light

In the beginning
God made the sun and the moon
Light for the day and night
in the beginning

In the beginning
God made the mountains and seas
teaming with vibrant life
in the beginning

"Let there be light"
and there was light

In the beginning
God made the heavens and Earth
It happened by words he spoke
in the beginning

In the beginning
God made the heavens and Earth
It happened by words he spoke
in the beginning

"Let us make man
in our image"
Track Name: Read My Need
I can ask
I can want
things and people
in my life
but they're times
I have lacked
sight to see the better path

I need your grace
to read my need

I can pray
I can wish
things to happen
in my way
But they’re times
I have lacked
wisdom for a better plan

I need your grace
to read my need
I need your grace
to read my need

I need your grace to read
I need your grace to read
I need your grace to read my need
Track Name: Lest We Forget
Open your door to the stranger
Open your door to the stranger
you pass
Open your door to the stranger
you pass

For we were strangers too
till God called us friends
We were strangers too
lest we forget

Open your arms to the homeless
Open your arms to the homeless
you pass
Open you arms to the homeless
you pass

For we were homeless too
till God called sons
We were homeless too
till he called us daughters

Open your heart to the broken
Open your heart to the broken
you see
Open your heart to the broken
Can't you see

For He was broken too
Jesus was broken for us
He was broken too
for us

For he was broken
and he was homeless
and he was a stranger

Whatever you do to the least of these....
Track Name: Yeshua is Near
In the evening time
as I lay down to rest
I know it is true
Yeshua is near

He who said
"I’ll never or forsake you"
Do not fear
Yeshua is near
Track Name: Shabbat Shalom
The week is over now
and you can put your work down
all those burdens that you've carried around
If rest is what you seek
there is one who provides
made a sanctuary crafted out of time

Shabbat Shalom to you
May the peace of God go with you
Find your rest
in knowing he is God

You can take your stress and
your failures and wants
bring them to his open, every-listening heart
He's the wisest place to find strength, hide away
And his hands are the safest hands to hold

Shabbat Shalom to you
May the peace of God go with you
Find your rest
in knowing he is God

Find your rest
in God
