This is the second EP in the space of a year from the London worship leader and songwriter Debbie Gillingham aka FireFly. The standout title track epitomises Debbie's pursuit of God's presence with an evocative melody and some honest lyrics ("I will pursue you/I want to know your ways/And to see you/To know the features of your face"). "Breakthrough" continues the theme with an endearing acoustic and electric guitar and piano-based accompaniment. The gentle "Beautiful Grace" showcases the sincere yet vulnerable quality in FireFly's voice while she is at her best when drawing us into intimacy with the simple "Outro (Worship You)".

I might be slightly buyast but I'm so genuine in saying how beautiful this E.P is as I know the place where it comes from and the importance to Deborah about worshipping God. Each track is so heartfelt that it shows from the words & her voice and never gets to a place where u tire of listening to it ;-).
