Our goal with the songs from the EP was to provide a soundtrack to what Rob and Cris were writing with the small group study. Along with these themes, Joel and I also wanted to include something that was more congregational - a song of praise that could fit into a church setting. Joel worked up a demo with our friend Adrian Disch and wanted help with the verses, so we went back and forth with voice memos until the final song came together. Production-wise, when we met with Stu he really wanted to keep the song in ‘church’ mode. No huge, overdone vocals or guitars. Joel’s added this to rotation at his church, and the reception has been great. Just one of the Biblical inspirations for the song:
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
