In an interview with theHouston Chronicle, Ray said, “God controls everything I do. It was written in about a two-week period. The hard part for me was not being a formally trained composer. The creativity was a result of divine inspiration. He was working with me.“ He added that the piece strikes an ecumenical chord that allows "people of all denominations or faith to embrace the style.””
