Expository Songs from Hebrews 2

Hebrews 2:18

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Dianne Wilkinson is certainly the greatest living expository songwriter in the Southern Gospel genre, and quite possibly the greatest living in any genre. Many of her songs have been chart-topping hits by the genre’s most popular groups. This song wasn’t. It’s a decent rendition by a decent group, and certainly not one of her best known songs. Yet look past the rendition (if you must) to see this jewel of an expository song underneath:
