For this album the popular Southern gospel team from New Richmond, Ohio, have re-recorded a batch of songs from previous releases. The Collingsworth Family comprise of Phil and Kim and their four children, Brooklyn, Courtney, Philip and Olivia, and make a pleasant sound with perfect diction and the opening track "God Is Faithful" written by Kim is a strong statement of Christian faith. Kim is also responsible for another song "When God Whispers In Your Heart" and is heavily featured on the piano solo of "Joshua Fit 'De Battle" and again on the closing "How Great Thou Art." "Until Then" is a trumpet solo but there is no indication as to who is featured here. The other songs are a nice mix of newish Christian songs, mainly featuring the girls in the group.
