Story Behind the Song

The lyricist wanted to answer the popular Christian hymn “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord” through a song of his own. When he developed the song, he stated “Even though I had not been born, I was there because of my sins and to receive the free gift of salvation! So it should start out as a factual statement and end with the praising of God.”
