Andy Park and Randy Butler contribute two 'sets' to the album with the theme of God as the source of our life. Songs of prayer, praise and worship are presented in a range of styles. In particular is the prayerful "Draw Me Close" by Kelly Carpenter, one of the strongest songs on the album, with a glorious saxophone instrumental. Rita Springer provides soulful lead vocals on "I Receive" and "You Are My God". The title track is a real romp, with synthesized bagpipes, no less! The performances, recording and production are excellent. However, the lyrical content is a little lightweight and the vocal/instrumental arrangements have a slightly 'samey' feel. The album is not so exceptional as to be an indispensable worship resource, but will have undoubted appeal to those who are blessed by Vineyard worship.
