Mulligan told NewReleaseToday
the story of the song:
"Our publisher at Word Records approached me and asked if I would be interested in writing a song for the movie. I said I'd love to. I was writing songs at the time with a friend of mine, Ben Backus from the band for King & Country. We'd been working on various tracks and decided to work on this song together.
They sent us a scene from the movie where they were looking to use our song. I went to my bedroom and I just sat there and asked God what He wanted me to write. All of my songs come from personal relationship stories and testimonies of actual experiences that I've had. For this song, it was for a funeral scene in the movie where the man has lost someone he loves very much. Thankfully I haven't really had that experience as an adult. What I did was think about my wife and what the Lord has done in our lives, and I imagined a time when either she would lose me or I would lose her and how that grief would feel. Then I tried to find the hope for that time.
I sat with my acoustic guitar and came up with a melody, and then I went to Ben's studio and we worked on the song. We've done twenty or thirty revisions of this song for the movie. We're really happy with how it ended up. It's a beautiful moment in the film, and we believe that the song matches up perfectly."
