WATCH: Charismatic Church Declares God's Goodness in Pandemic With Original Song
V1 Church, a charismatic church with multiple campuses in Long Island, New York, declared God's victory and goodness over the COVID-19 global pandemic. In a YouTube video, V1 Worship sings "Good Things," an ode to hope in this moment. The lyrics include:
Though pestilence surrounds me, I don't have to fear
Though this seems like defeat, my God only knows victory
I know that good things are coming
I see hope on the horizon
I see that You're doing a new thing
'Cause You've never left my side and You never will
The music video features a series of shots of businesses closed due to shelter-in-place orders, people observing social distancing protocols, healthcare workers treating and testing patients exposed to COVID-19.
In the video description, V1 Church wrote, "In this season of uncertainty, we believe that this song is a declaration of God's goodness in the midst of hardship." The description also includes a link to support those affected by COVID-19.
