Songfacts®:

  • Kanye West was raised a Christian, but for many years addictions to porn and sex got in the way of his faith. In 2019, Yezzy had a spiritual transformation and reaffirmed his commitment to God. Jesus Is King is West's first album since becoming a born-again Christian, and the whole record presents him as a champion of Jesus Christ.
  • The album's opening track exclusively features vocals from the Sunday Service Choir, a Los Angeles gospel-rap group. The choir are part of West's Sunday Service project, which the rapper started on January 6, 2019 in his Calabasas home.
  • The gospel song talks about giving praise to God every hour, minute and second of the day. If we do that, proclaim the choir, "the power of the Lord" will come down.
  • This is the only song on Jesus Is King that does not contain any vocals from West. Instead, the attention is focused on worshipping God.
