The Story Behind the Song

The very first verse in the Bible, Genesis 1:1, says, “In the beginning God [Elohim] created the heavens and the earth”. Elohim is a plural noun in speaking of a singular God, which expresses the three persons of the God head, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each day as He created all things, it repeatedly says, “and God saw that it was good.” It was from this, the way He created everything to be and the reflection on the fact that He still created us knowing mankind would fall, that this song was written from. God knew the chasm that the sin of mankind would create, and He had created a plan of redemption before the foundations of the earth. Jesus Christ, His perfect plan and Savior, the second in the Godhead, was the good and perfect sacrifice for us. God is good, all that He created was good, and His plan of redemption through Jesus was good.

We may not be good by our sinful nature, but just as Asaph wrote in Psalm 73:28, “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”

Bible Verses & Biblical Themes in the Song

  • The Creation Story in Genesis Chapters 1-2
  • “knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.” (1 Peter 1:18-21)
  • “But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush him and cause him grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants.” (Isaiah 53:10)
