The song which was released in 2001, still feels fresh in the hearts of people who listens to it. It was written and composed by Bart Millard, and inspired by the death of Millard’s father as he considers what it would be like in Heaven and to be standing before God.
In writing the music for the song, however, the band faced more difficulty; Millard noted that “at first it was a fast song… it was all these random ideas”. Keyboardist Jim Bryson noted that “we were literally tearing down the stuff… [Millard] and I were talking about arranging it differently and doing a slower version, so we just tried out a piano intro… it was literally the first thing I played. It wasn’t anything to do with me, I think it was just a God thing. [Millard] said ‘here it is, this is what’s going to happen’, and we laid the song down in about five minutes.” At that time, the other MercyMe members were Robby Shaffer on drums and percussion, Nathan Cochran on bass guitar and Michael Scheuchzer on guitar. This line-up recorded the first version of the song for The Worship Project. In 2006, it was included in the ‘Platinum Edition’ of Almost There.
