About the Song

His word shall not fail you, He promised
Believe Him and all will be well
Then go to a world that is dying
His perfect salvation to tell

When we hear the name Jesus, the first thing that comes into our mind is Salvation. The perfect person to surrender our worries to is the Lord because He is the master of everything. So, why do we have to worry about the things that are happening around us?

Sometimes we encounter rejections in life, but instead of worrying too much about it, why not turn those worries into great blessings? Some people say close doors open new beginnings. As long as we are in the Lord’s hands, we are safe.
