Songfacts®:

  • This concert live favorite is the title track and lead single from Australian Christian pop rock band Newsboys' fifteenth studio album. It is the first release by the group since former dc Talk member Michael Tait replaced Peter Furler as lead singer.
  • Tait explained in publicity materials that the band collectively view the song as representative of everything they have gone through in the past. "We've all believed in lies at some point," Tait said. "I had some prodigal years in the past, but I hope the song encourages others to make the same decision I did: 'I'm giving Him the best of everything that's left of the life inside this man / I've been born again."'
  • The song's music video shares footage of the Newsboys building houses in Mexico's poverty stricken Baja Peninsula. The band has been serving the people in this Third World setting for many years constructing hundreds of homes.
