Who is God? 1 John 4:8 – But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Dear God (Lyrics) – Cory Asbury

3 min read

Dear God is a new song by Cory Asbury. Cory writes: "It’s one of the most honest and vulnerable songs I’ve written to date." It’s laid out as a raw prayer to God. Perhaps it’s time for us all to be so vulnerable in front of God. It’s also time to hear His truth back into our lives instead of lies from the evil one.

Dear God,

I’ve been trying awful hard
to make You proud of me
but it seems
the harder that I try
oh, the harder it becomes
and I feel like giving up
most of the time

Dear God,

I’ve been chasing their approval
and it’s killing me
and I know
the more I to try to prove
oh, the less I have to show
and I’m stuck inside my head
most of the time

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

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
and when you felt like giving up
I never did

‘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
and 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
