I’m not a stranger to death, to disease, to heartache, to stress, to anxiety, to fear, or to weakness. For almost 2 decades I’ve stood on the stage leading worship and sat on couches listening to heartbreak and I’ve found that neither are the people of God.

As Andy Cherry and myself penned the lyrics and melody to “Forever King,” we only had one focus in mind:

  • that the weak would see Jesus as their strength
  • that the heartbroken would declare that He is their restoration
  • that the sick would believe He is their healer
  • that the lost would know they are found
  • that all within the Church would have power to live because of the work Jesus did on the cross and through the power of His resurrection

He is forever King and we will spend all of eternity telling Him.
