This is the title track of A Million Lights
, Michael W. Smith
's first pop album in over five years. Much of the record was written as a countercultural response to the divisive national sentiment of 2017 and the mean-spirited banter on social media.
"About half the album was written in response to where we are as a nation," said Smith. "In the age of social media, people have forgotten how to talk with one another, to be civil. Until the world ends, music is the most powerful language there is. It can transform your life on every level, not just the spiritual. It can help people reconnect with why they're here. That's what I'm doing with A Million Lights."
