The album kicks off with the Gaither Vocal Band in fine form with the title track. Another early track "I Wanna Be Ready" featuring two of the Isaacs is better known as Bill Monroe's "Walking In Jerusalem". Another familiar song is sung by the Florida Boys, a rousing version of "I John" which was one of Elvis's favourite pieces. If I was to pick a favourite it would be "Stand Still" by The Isaacs, which I had never heard before, and two other strong tracks are "I Could Sing About Heaven" by Paid In Full and "Healin' Stream" by Larry Gatlin. However the album seems to rather peter out and the last few tracks are rather ordinary. An enjoyable album but there are better offerings available from the Gaithers in their vast catalogue.
