"Carry," the latest in a string of inspired new singles from Elias Dummer, is available now. A tender song of gratitude acknowledging the depth of God's fatherly love towards His children, the track features acclaimed singer/songwriter JJ Heller.
Penned by Dummer alongside Tim Timmons, Steve Fee, and Brad Burke, "Carry" was co-produced by Dummer and Brent Milligan. Resting in the knowledge that "There is no season, no sin, and no sorrow/To keep You from carrying me in Your arms," the message of the single resonates deeply with Dummer.
"It might seem clichéd, but I'm often reminded of the old 'Footprints' poster because it's true; God really has carried me--and each of us together--through so much difficulty, hurt and wrestling in this life," he shares. "Only when we look back on the road we've traveled can we see that. Ultimately, it's genuine communion and closeness with God that we all seek, so with this in mind we wrote 'Carry' as a delicate song--almost a lullaby--to remind us that God, as the Father He is, desires to carry us through the challenges we face."
www.bestintimes.com "Having worked together on the video for The City Harmonic's 'Holy (Wedding Day)' years ago, I couldn't help but hear JJ Heller's voice on 'Carry,'" Dummer adds of the duet. "I'm thrilled we had the opportunity to work together again on this song."
"Carry" marks Dummer's third new single this year and arrives on the heels of last month's "The Gospel Is Rest." The latter track features acclaimed duo Land of Color and offers a balm for weary souls in the throes of troubled times. Additionally, Dummer's "Expectation" was released in July, the energetic hit single proclaiming Christ's promises and His kingdom to come. All three songs will be featured on Dummer's full-length studio recording set for release next year.
