A note from Michael: I want to take a moment to share with all of you how the record that you hold in your hand, came to be. For years I have wanted to record a record that not only glorifies God completely, but that also enables those listening to focus on God - to worship God as they listen. I had a Hymnal/Devotional sitting in my studio for quite sometime that I had bought to familiarize myself with traditional Hymns. I didn?t grow up in the church, so I?m familiar with some of the old Hymns but for the most part, I didn?t know so many of them even existed. I started leading worship at my church in 2000 and many people would come up to me after the service to request a Hymn for the following Sunday service. That?s when, and why, I purchased the Hymnal. As I began to flip through the pages of the Hymnal, I was absolutely floored by many of the words. Again, not knowing the melodies of most of the Hymns, the words moved me and spoke to me in a very powerful way. I felt led to start writing new music to some of these amazing lyrics. What started out as one song (?Take My Life?) turned into another, and another, and yet another. Once all the songs were chosen, written and arranged, I began recording. It started out as an acoustic guitar and vocal only, and then built from there. More guitars, more vocals, and so on. It?s been a long journey for this project and yet at the same time, an amazing one. I?ve had the opportunity to do so much through the years ? touring, recording, filming - and yet I?ve learned that nothing is as fulfilling as worshiping The Lord. When you worship God, it?s not about you, it?s about Him. It?s not about performance, it?s about Him. I never really understood that completely until I started leading worship, which led to this record becoming a reality. It?s an honor and a privilege to serve God, and I hope that this music blesses you as much as it has blessed me to make. Always, Michael
Michael Sweet at his best

"After having waited with anticipation for this disc, I took a listen just after it was released and found what, in my opinion, is the best Michael Sweet yet. Long known for long hair and metal in the Stryper days, Michael's music has taken a journey throughout the years. Three solo records and an independent release or two have found their way through rock and pop, with intelligent lyrics and catchiness that makes me listen to even the self-titled 1994 release over and over again 12 years later. In short, Michael is an awesome songwriter and this CD showcases that like never before.
The CD is a collection of beautiful melodies and the signature uniqeness of Michal's voice, but it goes where his other projects have not: to the heart of worship. If you're looking for beautiful melodies and words with meaning, this is it. "Him" will inspire you. You won't be sorry you picked this one up!"
I couldn't image living without it...serious
