Download: Egypt – Cory Asbury ft. Bethel Music
The song composition and lyrics celebrate God’s faithfulness to His people, as witnessed in the Israelites’ deliverance to the Promised Land.
Recorded live at Bethel Church’s Redding, California, campus earlier this year, the victorious anthem of freedom was inspired by a wilderness season in Asbury’s own life.
“The song was born in the winter of 2017, just after moving from Colorado Springs to Kalamazoo, Michigan,” Asbury recounts.
“My wife and I were leading worship at our local church, and during the final song of the set, the church just erupted into spontaneous praise. Our pastor jumped on stage and began leading the room in thanksgiving.
During this time, he spoke the phrase and something inside of me leapt. It was the phrase my heart had been feeling but lacked language for until that moment.”
“Scripture says God delivered Israel from the Egyptians so they could worship,” he continues. “I hope people can experience God’s relentless fight for their heart of worship and that this song sets people free to worship Him.
I hope it sparks a tidal wave of gratefulness that spills over into our everyday lives. Sometimes in order to rightly look at the future, we must consider His faithfulness in the past.”
