This Pat Barrett and Tony Brown penned song was originally sung in churches in the Atlanta area. Chris Tomlin
's wife, Lauren, heard the tune while attending a conference in the Georgia city and convinced her husband to record it.
Tomlin told Billboard
magazine: "My wife Lauren discovered the song for me and I loved it as soon as she played it for me. Then I found out that I knew one of the guys who wrote it (Pat Barett), so I called Pat to compliment him on writing such a great song and he ended up playing on my version and singing harmonies. It's such a great song about God as a father and his love for people."
