Worship Leader Premieres Lead Single/Video “Comfort, Oh Comfort,” Offering Timely Hope For Today’s World

Take a listen to this beautiful song, and be sure to watch the video!

In 2011, singer-songwriter Caroline Cobb gave herself a goal to write a song for every book of the Bible in a year. That year of writing set in motion a passion to tell the stories of Scripture through music. She did this with imagination, artistry, and faithfulness to the text. As a result, this goal would lead her to her latest album, “A Seed, A Sunrise,” bringing together an artistic tapestry like no other.

Caroline’s forthcoming album A Seed, A Sunrise explores the longing of Advent, the joy of Christmas, and the anticipation of Jesus’ return, building on the previous story-telling albums the Blood + the Breath (2013) and a Home & a Hunger (2017), the latter being named among “The Best Albums of the 2010s” by The Gospel Coalition.

Featured by The Gospel Coalition, Doxology & Theology, Risen Motherhood and more, Caroline has been compared to Rich Mullins, Andrew Peterson, Sandra McCracken, and Ellie Holcomb. She and her husband live in Dallas, Texas with their three children Ellie, Harrison, and Libby.

To Look With Hope

Caroline Cobb launches her third album, A Seed, A Sunrise: Advent to Christmas Songs, to streaming, digital, and retail outlets internationally on November 20, 2020. The recording is beautifully crafted with rich, biblical imagery, artful arrangements, and poetic lyrics, stirring up both the longing for Jesus and the joy of His coming to help the Church rehearse and remember God’s Story. 

Following her acclaimed A Home & A Hunger album, named one of the “Best Albums of the 2010s” by The Gospel Coalition and listed among Under the Radar’s “Best Gourmet Albums of 2017,” A Seed, A Sunrise builds on Caroline’s previous full-length projects, both of which trace a biblical theme from creation to Christ’s return. For the new recording, Caroline draws heavily from Isaiah and other Old Testament prophets, as well as the gospel narratives.

“When I looked at the lyrics and Scripture references for A Seed, A Sunrise, I noticed light and garden imagery woven throughout. But it wasn’t just light, it was more like a longing for the dawn after a long, dark night. And it wasn’t just a garden, it was the hope of beauty growing up from the desert, the hope of a tiny seed bringing forth the green of Eden in a desolate wilderness,” Caroline shares.

Comfort, Oh Comfort

Recorded live in the studio in February and produced by Isaac Wardell (Josh Garells, Sandra McCracken), the album also features Tyler Chester (Madi Cunningham, Switchfoot), Andrew Osenga (Andrew Peterson, Caedmon’s Call), gospel trio Resound (Lauren Daigle) and a fourteen-piece string orchestra.

The lead single from A Seed, A Sunrise, “Comfort, Oh Comfort,” which is available at digital and streaming outlets everywhere via https://ffm.to/comfort.opr, also becomes the album’s first concept video, premiering last week on Worship Leader

“I wrote this song for a friend walking through a hard season with her adult daughter,” Caroline says, who draws from passages in Isaiah that speak of gardens coming from the wasteland and rivers streaming in the desert. “But as I sang it, I realized it was also for me: there were ‘scorched and dry’ places in my life, seasons shadowed by grief. This song speaks comfort into our dry places and reminds us that through Jesus, we have the promise of full restoration one day.”

A Seed, A Sunrise

A Seed, A Sunrise also features “Joy (As Far as the Curse Is Found)” and “Hallelujah, Christ Is Born,” both rejoicing in the long-awaited birth of Jesus, and “There Will Be A Day (Isaiah 2)” and “Be on the Lookout,” which remind us to look with hope toward Jesus’ second arrival, even as we work to “take to the world His love and justice, singing ‘let His Kingdom come’!”

“Although we recorded this album just before the upheaval of 2020 began, these songs of longing and finding hope in Jesus seem all the more relevant in the midst of racial injustice, political division, fires, hurricanes and the COVID-19 pandemic,” Caroline explains. “My prayer is that these songs will be a needed balm for us, giving voice to both the desperate cry ‘how long, O Lord?’ and to the unwavering hope we have in Jesus. Longing and hope are not mutually exclusive. We need both right now.”
