The album also includes songs from the Hillsong United album United We Stand.
The majority of songs were written by Reuben Morgan, Marty Sampson, Joel Houston, Ben Fielding and Darlene Zschech. New Zealand singer-songwriter Brooke Fraser, who moved to Hillsong Church after moving to Australia, wrote a song for the album.
”More to See” was written by Darlene Zschech, Mia Fieldes, Deborah Ezzy, Donia Makedonez and Nigel Hendroff after Darlene was inspired to write a song by women who had lived the Christian life and could inspire others.
