Songfacts®:

  • "Goodness of God" is a song of praise to our good and faithful Lord. Jenn Johnson, one-half of worship duo Brian & Jenn Johnson, sings the song. Her husband Brian Johnson is the president and co-founder of Bethel Music.
  • Jenn Johnson explained to New Release Today that the song originated in 2018 during the process of adopting their fourth child, Ryder. Jenn explained to have a baby again when she and Brian had "been out of baby season for eight years," was "such a blessing."

    One day, in the midst of the adoption process, Jenn found herself driving along a long country road singing to the Lord. Out of her impromptu worship session came a song about the "faithfulness" and "kindness of God," which she recorded on her phone. She said: "I wrote and sang most of 'Goodness of God' as an overflow of my heart at that moment."

    Jenn later developed and completed the song with her husband, Ed Cash, Jason Ingram, and Ben Fielding.
  • "Goodness of God" is the third single to be released from Bethel Music's live album Victory.
