When Aodhan King and Joel Houston started the writing session that produced this song, their aim was to come up with something original. The duo wanted a theme that was central to what Christians believe but hasn't been spoken about much.
King explained to NewReleaseToday
: "What we sometimes forget is that we were broken and that God died for us so that we could be whole and healed. Jesus went to the cross with our sins and died and He carried everything we had done and would do in the future to the cross so that we could live with Him forever."
As King and Houston wrestled with the theme they chopped and changed the words. King said: "It's so significant from the things we experience in life, whether emotional heartbreaks or the truth of what Jesus did for us, that affect our hearts. We changed the lyrics many times to try to get the song just right."
