Country music icon Dolly Partner partnered with Christian artist Zach Williams on the song “There Was Jesus” to remind fans that God is always there. It is a message of hope in dark times.

“There Was Jesus” topped 10.5 million impressions, putting it in the number 1 spot on Billboard’s Christian Adult Contemporary chart, The Christian Post reports.

The song beat out “Together for King and Country” which held the number 1 spot for four weeks straight.

“Having a No. 1 record at any time is a great thing, but having a No. 1 faith-based record during these crazy times is even greater. I feel humbled and blessed to be part of this wonderful song with Zach Williams. It does my heart good to know that we have touched the lives of so many people,” Dolly Parton said in an interview with Billboard Magazine.

The song includes the moving words…

“In the waiting, in the searching

In the healing and the hurting

Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces

Every minute, every moment

Of where I been and where I’m going

Even when I didn’t know it

Or couldn’t see it

There was Jesus”

Williams explained that he wrote the song to share his journey. As soon as he was finished writing the song, he told his producer that he wanted to work with Parton. He thought she would be the perfect fit.

When Parton heard the song’s first verse, she knew she wanted to be included on the track. The rest is history! Congratulations to these two wonderful musicians of faith, who are using their platform to share their faith in Jesus Christ.
