This is the Nashville-based singer/songwriter's fifth album and two years since his nine-square rated 'Rise'. This collection continues the quality output of rich melodies and engaging lyrics all wrapped up in his distinctive, slightly gravelly, country-tinged voice. Some notable songs include "Sons And Daughters", a mid-tempo rock track with lyrics "You call us sons/And we call you Father/We see our King/And you see your daughters" and the stripped back and vocally exposed title track with some nice background vocals. "We Adore You" is a soulful, beautifully crafted worship song and an added bonus is a live recording of the popular "Your Grace Is Amazing" featuring the CCM stalwart Natalie LaRue. These songs show an increasing songwriting maturity from PJ and the thread running through the whole offering is an uplifting declaration of God's amazing mercy.
