Verse 1

Dear God
I’ve been trying awful hard
To make You proud of me
But it seems
The harder that I try
The harder it becomes

Verse 2

And I feel like giving up
Most of the time
Dear God
I’ve been chasing their approval
And it’s killin' me

Verse 3

And I know
The more I to try to prove
The less I have to show
And I’m stuck inside my head
Most of the time

Pre Chorus 1

But If I pray a little harder
If I follow all the rules
I wonder could I ever be enough


'Cause I try and try
Just to fall back down again
And I ask myself why
Do I try to chase the wind
I should lean into the mystery
Maybe hope is found in a melody
So I wanna try again


Oh I’m gonna try again

Verse 4

Dear child
I hope you know how much I love you
And I’m proud of you
And please believe
The thoughts I have for you
Will never change or fade away

Verse 5

And when you felt like giving up
I never did

Pre Chorus 2

'Cause I’m not scared of imperfections
Or the questions in your head
Just know that you
Have always been enough


'Cause you tried and tried
And I saw you wrestle with
Every how every why
I was right there listening
So just fall into the mystery
I’ll meet you here in the melody
Try just to try again


Oh child would you try again


My child you can love again

Cory Asbury | To Love a Fool

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning artist Cory Asbury’s new album To Love A Fool marks his second release with Bethel Music and third album to date. The album came after a year-long sabbatical, seen in the vulnerable worship and honest reflections that accompanied that time. The album has a diverse sonic landscape, from the intimate sounds of “Dear God” and “Unraveling"; to the mountaintop moments of “The Father’s House.” The album also houses songs with mid-tempo, pop sounds, like “Sparrows” and “Canyons", bringing to the surface a new facet to Cory's classic sound. The album camps around a constant theme in Asbury's life, the love of God and His unwavering devotion to His children: "The highest king of heaven, chose to love a fool. I don't understand it, but I know I want nothing more than you."
