When the anointed Dana Hemphill titled her project, “I Will Declare”, little did she know, how quickly God would show his strength in so many areas of her life. Penned by, Dana Hemphill and Dwayne Sherrod, the lyrics to the title track, “I Will Declare” explain exactly how God has proven himself, “For every mountain, for every trial, for every valley, the outcome of it all, he’s been there for me, promised to never leave or forsake me, I give him praise, I will declare his name is Jesus. “I will declare Him: Faithful, Healer, Father, Counselor, Provider and Holy. I will Declare His Name is Jesus.”
