God has been faithful to perform it,” said Wilson today. “Thank you to all for diligently promoting the song and especially to all the stations, and listeners. Thanks to every contributor to its creation and finally thank you to my wife and children who were the first people I wanted to know and believe that God is Doing A Great Work!!!!”
