SONG STORY

"Kasih-Mu" (translated "Unfailing Love") was written during the first Indonesian Worship Writers' Workshop collaboration in our church. Rony and I came from different local churches--—Rony from Surabaya and I myself from Jakarta.

In this rare opportunity, we were tasked to collaborate in writing a song which focuses on God's Llove.  This song is originally written in Bahasa Indonesia, which was then translated to English and arranged with the help of our fellow songwriters.

Our inspiration came from a discussion of our personal experiences with Jesus. From the sharing of our testimonies, we came up with a summary that whatever we have done, whoever we are, and whatever our weaknesses may be, Jesus has borne our sins on the Cross. Today, we stand redeemed by Hhis Llove.

Overall, Tthe lyrics are simple, but it emphasizes on Jesus' sacrificial love, and it is perfect. The bridge, "‘No one else but Christ alone",’ reminds us that it i’s all because of Christ and not what we have done. Writing this song has blessed me and Rony as songwriters. We hope that it will bless you too as you are reminded of God's perfect and unfailing love. ”
