Struggling to find the name of a song!
I was in the Greenville area for many years, and I waited for this gospel song to come on, going you would say the name of the song or artist. I never caught it and it was played regularly about five or six years ago. It was an upbeat praise song l, add the only line I can remember is in the chorus. It goes, "Cause it's my it's my testimony!" I know it's not much to go on, but if you know what song I'm talking anot, please send me the title and artist to Thank you for your time and consideration. God Bless you and keep your mind on His Grace!
