Hillsong Worship leader leader Brooke Ligertwood co-penned this praise anthem with her husband, Scott Ligertwood, and Jason Ingram. The song's simple and repetitive melody enabled its writers to include plenty of words; this gave them the opportunity to summarize the huge story of what Jesus did for us and the implications for today's church. Brooke Ligertwood explained to New Release Today
that in leaning towards liturgy with a devotional angle she hoped listeners will get caught up in the song's journey and be stirred to worship.
"This song is firmly rooted in scripture and packed full of theology," she said. "Theology releases praise. We hope and we pray that the song articulates the heart of the Gospel and the story of the church, starting with the birth of Jesus and through Pentecost essentially and then placing ourselves within that story, with the birth of the Church and our salvation stories."
