Matt Redman is an English Christian worship leader and songwriter. In 2008 Matt and his family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to plant a church with Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin. They returned home to the UK two years later in August 2010 and Redman wrote this song about the constancy and faithfulness of God on his first visit back to Atlanta after he'd moved back to his home country. He explained the background to the tune in an interview with Christianity Today: "I began to write it in Atlanta on my first visit back since our family returned to the UK. Our house in Atlanta hadn't sold, and the song started out in the empty, echoey kitchen—just me, my guitar, a few chords, and some very solid truth about our God. Transition is always tough, and I was thinking through the journey of the last few years—all the joys and struggles. I had a very real sense of God's immense kindness and faithfulness over every page of my life. Jason Ingram and Tim Wanstall, two great friends and songwriters, jumped in to work with me to finish the song."
