The couple’s rendition of ‘Goodness of God’ particularly stands out in their repertoire. The song’s lyrics reverberate with an unwavering faith and deep-seated gratitude to God:
I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never fails me
All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

Jenn Johnson, from Bethel Music, revealed that the song was born during her son Ryder’s adoption process. “During the adoption process, I found myself driving on a long country road. I was just singing to the Lord when I recorded a song on my phone about the “faithfulness” and “kindness of God.” I wrote and sang most of “Goodness of God” as an overflow of my heart at that moment,” she shared.
Caleb + Kelsey’s rendition of ‘Goodness of God,’ steeped in faith, love, and gratitude, serves as an uplifting beacon, shining brightly in our often chaotic world. It reaffirms that, in moments of joy or sorrow, we can always find solace and strength in the unwavering goodness of God.
