Gospel Music Jesus By Eduek
Eduek debuts with ‘Jesus’ a song in worship and honour of Jesus, God’s perfect sacrifice.
”So I wrote this song in the midst of deep confusion, choosing to worship Him instead of my worries. Because sometimes when life throws you the meanest stuff, He is the only thing that makes everything make sense. The best gift anyone can have in these times is Jesus. And that is not a cliché. May He fill your life, calm your storms, dispel your fears, erase your worries, restore your life, your joy, your faith, your hope, your love and give you the rest and peace that only He can.” Dear Jesus, this is for You. Eduek
