Integrity Music on Tuesday announced the release of a new single from Sarah Kroger, "Standing In Your Light" (listen here). Kroger, a Nashville-based Catholic worship leader and songwriter ("For Us," "Run to The Cross," "In The Silence"), will also release a new album this fall.
Recently sharing about the upbeat song, Kroger said, "This summertime anthem is a song that gives people hope in every season. The lyrics describe what I hope to see as I look out at the people of God standing in his light, unashamed, and full of faith."
“I wanna hear the people singing/I wanna feel the walls come down/I wanna start a new beginning/Finding a freedom in the sound/I know the power of resurrection/I know the life within Your Name/I know You’re the Author of salvation/I will never be the same/There is no fear when I am standing in Your light/Made me a promise You are always by my side/My hands are lifted to the One who changed my life/I’m only free when I am standing in Your light.”
She said, "Even in a time of pandemic and quarantine, believers all over the world are still putting his love on display and sharing the light of Christ with their communities through evangelism, service and self-sacrifice. It’s my hope that this song encourages people to leave behind the darkness and bring all of themselves into the light so God can continue to transform us and send us out. Standing in the light of Christ we have everything we need. 'For with You is the fountain of life; In your light we see light.’ Psalm 36:9."
"Standing In Your Light" is a unique turn from her previously released album, 2019's introspective “Bloom.” It will be the first single from her upcoming album, “Light,” slated to release this fall, which will offer more upbeat worship, truly showcasing Kroger coming into her own as a worship artist with dynamic energy, color and enthusiasm.
Kroger, who grew up in Melbourne, Florida, developed a love for music as a child when she began singing in church choirs while following in the steps of her parents who were both music ministers. With a passion to create a safe, prayerful space through her music in which people can encounter the love of God, for the past nine years she has led worship at events around the world, using her talents to draw people together from a variety of cultures and church backgrounds under the banner of Jesus.
Prior to her Integrity Music debut of “Bloom,” which included Kroger's cover of Amanda Lindsey Cook's well-known "Pieces" featuring Audrey Assad, Kroger released two other albums: “Your Time” (2011) and “Hallelujah Is Our Song” (2013), which features “Run To The Cross” and “In The Silence.” “Light “will be her sophomore release with Integrity Music.
