Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from British Contemporary Christian Music band Delrious?'s final studio album, Kingdom of Comfort. Guitarist Stu G told New Release Tuesday about the message behind this song: "I was really inspired by what I read in the book Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell. One of the things Rob talks about in the book are those moments where you feel like you are connecting to something bigger than yourself, like standing on a mountaintop and your kids being born. In the song, I mention the mystery of love and the gravity of God's love. There really aren't any words to express those moments. Instead, sometimes it's about the 'groaning of my soul'. I also was thinking about the hymn 'How Great Thou Art,' 'then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee.'"
