  • Chris August covered "Pieces" in 2017. He said.

    "I love the song. I love what it says! I love that it's just a beautiful reminder of who God is. You know his love is not fractured, it's not insecure, it's not passive, it's not disengage; He does not give himself to us in pieces. I think it's a great reminder that we're not supposed to give ourselves to him in pieces. We're supposed to lay it fully at the cross and that's why I recorded the song 'Pieces.'"
