      About this song

      Some truths are so rich, so wonderful and expansive, they call for a special word. Take the covenant love of God for his people. Throughout Scripture, God reveals himself as slow to anger, full of mercy, and faithful in steadfast affection to those he has redeemed. The King James Version uses a beautiful word to translate this idea, one that still resonates deeply today: lovingkindness. 

      In this new hymn by Matt Redman, Matt Boswell, and Matt Papa, we celebrate the never-failing, awe-inspiring, undeserved lovingkindness of God. Combining upbeat energy with truths worth singing over and over again, this song was written to help us wonder at the character of God: “How great your lovingkindness, O God of goodness, our joy forever to sing the glad refrain!”
