While many old songs and solos were chosen for this album, I also wanted to do some new things. I wanted to include this song, based on themes that are necessary in my life. The tune itself is such a simple little ditty, but I love the words. They’re so absolutely true. We’ve got to stand on God’s promises and that’s the basis of all that we do.
Doug Court is a young Salvation Army composer and a friend. Many of his arrangements are simple and basic but beautiful and right to the point. I asked him to do this in a Latin beat, something that would be fun and that brought in the flugel horn. It starts with the flugel horn and ends with the trumpet. The result is really nice.
