Album: Love Was Here First (2009)
  • This is a track from Canadian Contemporary Christian Singer-Songwriter Carolyn Arends' tenth studio album, Love Was Here First.
  • Arends has always been known for her insightful lyrics and on Love Was Here First she continues to write songs in an open and honest manner. She told Christian Music Today that some listeners might deem this song is controversial. She explained: "It's my attempt to wrestle with issues of theodicy, and I know some of my listeners are going to strongly disagree with the conclusions I tentatively come to. But it was a song that literally wrestled me to the ground. I couldn't rest until I'd finished that one, and for reasons I can't even clearly articulate, I felt compelled to record it as well."
