Acoustic Performance of "Sparrows" by Cory Asbury

And you hold me in your hands
With a kindness that never ends
I'm carried in your love, no matter what the future brings

“I think I wrote eight songs in two weeks,” Asbury recalls. “I couldn’t shut it off. I couldn’t sleep at night, and when I did, I would just be having dreams; and the dreams would be songs and song ideas. It felt like the most prolific writing season of my whole life. It felt like the heavens opened and all of a sudden, God was speaking. It was awesome.” - Source: Freeccm

When asked about the new album, @Cory Asbury explained...“The title of the album comes from the lyric in ‘Nothing More Than You’ which says, ‘The highest King of Heaven CHOSE to love a fool,’” he explains. “It’s a beautiful paradox. Through the first album and now this one, I realized that I just can’t seem to get over the love of God. I’m stuck on it.”

“He’s not a small-minded bookkeeper peering over the balcony of heaven waiting for us to mess up,” Asbury continues. “No, His love keeps no record of wrongs. For God so loved the world, He came close. He casts our sin as far as the east is from the west. Because He loves us, we learn to love ourselves. That’s an astounding thought. We’ve got to learn to love ourselves, fools though we are.”- Source: Freeccm
