A sharing by Helen Chang on how this song came to be written and composed:

The lyrics of this song came about shortly after my own spiritual struggles with the 'self' and the power of sin back in the early 80's. Once I was set free from such a bondage, my heart was so filled with joyful thanksgiving that I could see the possibility of my ongoing worship of my God and King all my life long. Although so many years have since past, the lyrics are as dear and as fresh to me even now as the day it was first written. Is there a greater privilege, a higher calling than to live in obedience to our God Yahweh? Is there a more noble service than to Adore and to Worship Him Who gave His son to set us free from 'self' and the power of sin? Let it be our goal each day so long as He lends us breath!
