I Serve A Savior

Album: I Serve A Savior (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Josh Turner's 2018 gospel album, "I Serve A Savior" is one of two original songs on the collection. His wife and son's tune "The River (of Happiness) (live from Gaither Studios)" is the other.
  • Turner wrote the song with his good friend Mark Narmore. Like Turner, Narmore is a committed Christian; the pair have collaborated on several other spiritually inclined tunes such as "The Answer" and "Let's Find a Church."
  • Turner told Billboard that he and Namore penned "I Serve A Savior" back in 2016 before he knew he was going to be working on a gospel album. At the time he set out to pen a modern-day hymn, "something that really kind of spoke towards the definition of servitude and what that means."
