Lyrics

I love You Lord
Oh 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
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest nights

You are close like no other
I’ve known You as a father

I’ve known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now, I give You everything

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

Worship leaders Brian and Jenn Johnson hope to inspire others to adopt, or at least support the adoption movement after their son Ryder Moses, meaning "adopted deliverer," changed their lives. Ryder was a gift from God at just the right time. During the adoption process, Jenn found herself driving on a long country road when she recorded a song on her phone about the "faithfulness" and "kindness of God." That impromptu recording session produced "Goodness of God."
