David Crowder wrote this song inspired by Psalm 122 v1, one of the first Bible verses he memorized as a child. His favorite Sunday School teacher, Miss Panell, had encouraged him to memorize the verse.I rejoiced with those who said to me
Let us go to the house of the Lord
As a kid, Crowder couldn't wait to go to church and to Miss Panell's class. "The song emphasizes that church should be a grace-filled place of belonging, a place that feels like home," Crowder told New Release Today
. "Something that celebrates the critical role the local church plays in each of our lives."
