This song looks to the day when Jesus will return and believers from all nations will bring their adoration and devotion to him together in their own languages. Such a hope and love motivate the church in her mission to those people groups who have yet to hear of God's kingdom.
It was one of two songs composed for the WEC International leaders' conference in 2010, based on the conference theme: "Inspired and Compelled: Reaching – Planting – Mobilising Together".
While mainly a congregational song in English, it has something of a global feel, from the Asian introduction with African beats, to a section that declares "Jesus is Lord" in different languages. It was written so that congregations can replace these short phrases with languages known and used by those singing it.
