Acclaimed singer, songwriter Caroline Cobb is premiering the lyric video for her new song “Find Rest (Matthew 11),” from the upcoming album A King and His Kindness, today with Worship Leader. Listen below:
Produced by Isaac Wardell (Josh Garells, Sandra McCracken) and featuring Tyler Chester (Madi Cunningham, Switchfoot), gospel trio Resound (Lauren Daigle), Taylor Leonhardt (Mission House) and Sean Carter (People & Songs), A King & His Kindness is the fourth in an anthology of albums that builds on Cobb’s acclaimed Story-telling projects A Seed, A Sunrise (2020), A Home & a Hunger (2017) and the Blood + the Breath (2013). Each album traces a biblical theme from creation to Christ’s return, with every song parachuting into a different scene from scripture.
“My last three albums were more sweeping and panoramic, taking a wide-angle view of the biblical Story, tracing a theme all the way from Genesis to Revelation. Over the past few years, I’ve been eager to zoom in, to get up-close to the person that the whole Story hinges on: Jesus,” shares Cobb. “He had a real life and lived with real people, teaching about his kingdom, showing compassion, turning over tables. He is not a concept or an idea, but a person whose life demands a response.
“With all that’s going on in the world and in the Church right now, my prayer is that these songs will have a re-centering effect, bringing us home to Him,” continues Cobb.
“In writing and recording these songs, I’ve loved getting up-close with the person of Jesus and seeing myself in these stories,” continues Cobb. “But it’s been challenging too: when we are confronted with the real Jesus, indifference is not a viable option. We must respond. Charles Spurgeon said that ‘if Christ be anything, He must be everything.’ My prayer is that these songs will make Jesus more real to us – in all His humanity and divinity, compassion and kingship – and that we would respond by casting aside our indifference and casting our whole lives on Him.”
