The album was created with her friends at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and Christy states "what a beautiful night this recording was." The album begins with a real energy, "Freedom Song", with fast paced beat and memorable lyrics: "I will sing my God of your great love/Telling of the one who has saved my soul/I will shout it out to the mountaintops/You're my freedom song." After the opener we have gentle tracks, one of these being a beautifully delivered (and possibly one of the best) versions of Chris Tomlin's "The Wondrous Cross" you're ever likely to hear, with Christy singing over a gentle piano-led arrangement. The album includes new recordings of some of Christy's favorite songs of the faith such as "Jesus, Rock Of Ages" and "Leaning On You, Jesus", the latter reminding us that we can and should always depend on the Lord. "Find Me At The Feet Of Jesus" is another of those songs where her voice grips the listener and brings attention to the heartfelt lyrics with its stripped down arrangement, the congregation can be clearly heard engaging in worship. With this newest offering, Christy demonstrates why she has become one of the most respected lead worshipers in the Church today.
