  • Here, Zach Williams sings about having joy in his heart.

    I got an Old Church Choir singing in my soul
    I got a sweet salvation and it's beautiful
  • Williams explained the song's background to NewReleaseToday:

    "I had this idea for this song from experiences I had growing up and going to small churches in the country and following gospel quartets with my grandparents. Memories of that are how God got my attention and got me interested in music at an early age and those experiences and encounters I had with Him. I didn't really know how to react or respond to that as I didn't play music at the time. I've also loved music and my dad is a musician, and I feel like at an early age God put a song on my heart. For years of my life I ran from that and didn't pursue God at all but He was constantly pursuing me and writing His story for my life that He wanted me to eventually tell.

    Through that process God allowed me to live through a lot of things in my life that weren't good but gave me this platform to share about it. The idea for this song is about an old church choir in my soul, and how I couldn't contain anymore all the things that God has done in my life. I wanted to tell somebody about it and no matter what anybody said or did, nobody could take that away. That's the idea for this song and I wanted it to have a church gospel choir sound to it and that's how we wrote the song. We need to rejoice at all times."
