The title of Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Carolyn Arends' 10th studio album, Love Was Here First
comes from this song. The Canadian artist told Christian Music Today
that this song "sums up the story I'm trying to tell right now - with my album and I hope with my life." She explained: "I heard a theologian say that we tend to be dualists - we imagine God and Satan as virtually equal opponents in an epic battle - but that in reality Satan and all the power of evil wouldn't cover the head of a pin in comparison to the largeness of God's love and his power. I love that idea - that however messed up this world is, it was God's love that brought us into being, and there isn't any doubt that God's love is going to win in the end. Pretty much everything else on this record is an exploration of different facets of that reality."
