10. The Upside of Down
Favorite Lyrics- “You are more in my less. You are strength in my weakness. I’ll never go back again. And then your sunshine ends the rain, and then I return to my old ways. Why am I a fair weather fan? I wanna be the one to love like I should. Like you would. Through the good and the bad.”
9. Jesus Savior

7. No Far Away
Favorite Lyrics- “ I’ve climbed so high that I could not breathe. Then I saw you there. You called me close and my heart gave in. Then I saw you, yeah I saw you.

5. He Said (Featuring Group 1 Crew)
Favorite Lyrics- “So your life feels like it don’t make sense. And you think to yourself, I’m a good person. So why do these things keep happening? Why you gotta deal with them? You may be knocked down now but don’t forget what he said, he said, I won’t give you more, more than you can take. And I might let you bend, but I won’t let you break.
“The Truth” Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times? Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy seven times.”
4. 7 Times 70 Times
Favorite Lyrics-“I lost count of the ways you let me down. But no matter how many times you weren’t around. I’m alright now. God picked up my heart and helped me through and shined a light on the one thing left to do and that’s forgive you. I forgive you.”
3. Center of It
Favorite Lyrics- “Some nights I lay awake and I can’t push these thoughts away. I’m worried where I’m gonna go. Where I’m gonna be, are you gonna be there for me. When it feels like the doors are closing. Gotta trust that you’re doing something. Come sun, come rainy day, you are all I need.”
Favorite Lyrics- “There’s a battle between good and evil, and it’s raging inside of me. There’s a struggle- It’s God and the devil. It’s love against the enemy.”
“The Truth” Psalm 148:2-3 Praise him, all his angels, praise him all his hosts! Praise him sun and moon, praise him all you shining stars.
Favorite Lyrics- “I’m giving my life to the only one who makes the moon reflect the sun. On that starry night, He changed my life. I’m giving it all to the only son who gave me hope when I had none. So let the praises ring.”
Starry night is not just my favorite Chris August song, it is one of my all time favorite songs. He has enjoyed mainstream success on several other big hit singles like Battle, 7x70, and a collaboration with Group 1 Crew. Chris suffered a serious set of injuries after a skateboarding accident in 2012. Chris talks about how he learned to trust as a result of the incident. I can’t wait to hear future albums from Chris August.
“The Truth” Psalm 37:5-6 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
