Watch Video: Abby Robertson – Sanctuary [Audio + Lyrics]

Abby Robertson showcases her stunning vocals in a live performance video of her latest single “Sanctuary.” Shot at the famed Ocean Way Nashville Studio, the young songstress pours her heart out in her most personal track-to-date – written during a trying time when her dad was suffering from a major health problem. Robertson turned inward and found peace the only way she knew how – through the power of God. Everything Nash gave audiences the first look of the video yesterday calling it “stunning.” The chilling, uplifting tune, which premiered last month with CCM Magazine, was co-written with Tyrus Morgan (Unspoken, We Are Messengers), Dave Lubben (Halsey, Carly Rae Jepson, Corey Harper, TobyMac), Kevin MaC and Andrea Robertson, and was released via her new deal with Big Future Music Group.

“I remember my mom reaching for a Bible when my dad was struggling with this health issue and randomly flipping to Psalm 150:1, which says, ’Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.’ Me, my Mom, brother & Dad all praised God in that moment—a moment that would later become this song.”

Though still early in her career, Robertson has a lot to be proud of: she’s opened for names like The Beach Boys and Switchfoot, and has performed at international music festivals in Israel, Malta, and Ethiopia. She’s released pop songs and even had a stint in country music—all before age 21.

However, if you ask Abby what her proudest career moment is so far, it’s not the festivals, or big-name openers, or the impressive number of Spotify downloads. What Abby is most proud of are the moments she’s been able to be her authentic self with her music and on stage. As she explains it, “Not worrying about what people think about me and being raw and real.” Not an easy task, especially for a female recording artist navigating the current cultural landscape.

Robertson is thrilled to be the first artist to sign with Big Future, where she plans to continue releasing songs that ring true to her authentic self and provide inspiration and healing for all who listen.

Lyrics:
You gave me a place
Where I could find rest
Your love gave me strength
When I ran out of breath

Nobody knows me like you do
Jesus, I run to you

Wherever I am There You are
Whenever I fall it’s into your arms
When clouds around me gather
You are my shelter
Even in the waves of a raging sea
You’re the calm where I find peace
When waters rise around me
You are my Sanctuary

You are my sanctuary
Jesus, you are

You’re my hideaway
When I can’t take it anymore
Yea with just a whisper of Your name
You settle the storms

Nobody knows me like you do
Jesus, I run to you

Wherever I am There You are
Whenever I fall it’s into your arms
When clouds around me gather
You are my shelter
Even in the waves of a raging sea
You’re the calm where I find peace
When waters rise around me
You are my sanctuary

You are my sanctuary
Jesus, you are

You’re my hiding place
I’m always safe
I’m Safe in Your arms
You’ll never change
You stay the same
It’s just who You are

Wherever I am there you are
Whenever I fall it’s into your arms

Wherever I am There You are
Whenever I fall it’s into your arms
When clouds around me gather
You are my shelter
Even in the waves of a raging sea
You’re the calm where I find peace
When waters rise around me
You are my sanctuary

You are my sanctuary
Jesus, you are

You’re my hiding place
And I’m always safe
My sanctuary
