Lyrics

I’ve been quiet for way too long
I can’t fight it no, no more
Got a story and it’s time to tell
‘Cause I just can’t, just can’t keep it to myself
Somebody give me a microphone or a megaphone
Or a telephone (I gotta share it)
You’re gonna clap your hands
Gonna wanna dance when you hear it (hear what?)

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright

Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good, good news
I got that good good news, yeah

I been praying (how long?)
For so, so long
Believing (for what?)
That day would come
He heard me (yes, he did)
And he pulled me out
He put me right here for such a time as now

Come on, clap your hands
Do that funky dance

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright

Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good, good news
I got that good good news, yeah

If you got it, share it
If you need it, receive it
Come on, tell everyone
That it’s all about good news (all about good news)
So much pain in the world
Dark in the world
Sure could use a little light in the world
So come on, tell me your good news

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright

Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good good news
I got that good good news, yeah
I’m talking good good news
I got that good good news

On July 13, 2016 Mandisa's brother called her and she was able to lead him in the prayer of salvation. She had been praying for him and even wrote a song for him on her latest CD because she was so longing for him to come to Jesus. God used this moment with her brother that show Mandisa that He is still about answering prayers. Mandisa was still in a pretty deep depression when her brother called and God, through this moment with her brother, communicated to her that HE does hear our prayers and still cares very much about us. This song is infectious, fun and so encouraging.

"When we're able to tell the world our good news, it points the glory right back to God! That's what this song is all about. It's about shouting from the rooftop that my God hears the prayer of the righteous, that He answers them and He's still in the business of bringing us good news!" - Mandisa
