8. Cory Asbury: Endless Love

Many worship songs feel corporate to the point of vague blandness, like the writers are intentionally steering away from anything that might alienate someone with a different personal experience. But Cory Asbury swings a different direction, drawing deep from his own most intimate feelings about God. In doing so, he proves true the old maxim about the most personal being the most universal. By hurtling his deepest prayers to the rafters, he builds a community.

His honesty makes the rest of us feel less alone.
