Husband and wife team Nick and Becky Drake believe in bringing both adults and children together in worship and through years of festival appearances, gigs and recordings have done so. Theirs is not an easy task but, as this compilation of many of their best tracks shows, their long-time CCM experience (they were once members of the fondly remembered British band Coastal Dune) has helped them create children-friendly/adult-bearable music. "City On A Hill" and "God Is Love" are catchy pop chart sounding songs which will keep young ears happy! Sadly some songs aim a little young which may be a challenge for some in the target group - "Big Family Of God" is an example with lyrics that "Some of us are big and tall/Some of us are very small. . .," the title track is another. Overall however, Nick and Becky manage to avoid the sickly sweet trap and the collection achieves its aim in bridging the age gap.
