This video features 10 songs and has a running time of one hour and 18 minutes. At first glance from the cover I thought that it was going to be a collection of single videos, but it's actually an edited version of a live performance, recorded at Calvary Temple in Irving, Texas. As such it is not the most exciting thing I've seen in terms of visuals. It is Kirk and family worshipping and praising God as only they can. It's a time full of emotion, passion and power, laced with the Spirit of God. The music and the lyrics are obviously of the highest order and very encouraging. Musical highlights include "Washed Away", which declares that the blood of Jesus has washed away our sin; "Mama's Song", which is an emotional tribute to his now departed mother, and the title song. If you've seen them before this will be a wonderful reminder, but if you have not, and would like to, this will enlighten you to what you have missed so far.
