The album was titled after both the Anglican hymn
and the semi-autobiographical book by British veterinary surgeon and writer James Herriot. Young explained why in an interview with Christianity Today
magazine: "I was raised singing the hymn in church, and my mother was a huge fan of Herriot's literary works and always had them around the house. The title was floating around in my head for who knows how long before I put two and two together and said, 'That's it. That's what the new record has to be called.'"
