Was truly surprised by this yesterday morning from the fine folks at @providentlabelgroup @providentradio @essentialworship
Grateful to be part of this song with such an amazing team of people, and once again so grateful to Bill and Gloria Gaither and everyone @gaithermusic for the original that inspired this one.
