Insight from the Song

Both of them are wonderful writers and have blessed so many people with all the songs they've written, especially with this song. The song itself is about worshipping God's amazing persona, about how His presence would bring a heavenly feeling. Not just a mere physical "heaven in earth" kinda thing, but more like the real deal.

Truthfully, when you're being in the presence of God, you won't be able to say anything but worshipping His presence. That's what this song is all about

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ - John 7:38
