This song is written by Trinity Anglican Mission (trinityanglicanmission.org) in Atlanta, Ga where worship pastor Marty Reardon and other gifted leaders work and serve. Reardon is an excellent musician, writer, and a down-to-earth, genuine guy with a longing for worship music that connects to the liturgy of the service.

This song comes from the "Prayers of the Saints" CD that they put out in 2006. My good friend Jarrett Dickey (fiveriverschurchplant.blogspot.com), who worked at Trinity during seminary brought this song (and many others) to my attention and I have greatly enjoyed getting to know the good people at Trinity and their music.
At the Emory Wesley Fellowship (emorywesley.org), the United Methodist Campus Ministry at Emory University, we sing this song often during communion because of the simple, but profound words and melody and the meaning behind them.
The text of this song is adapted from a Eucharistic prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas (12th century) and with its modern musical setting can used from a prayerful, solemn vibe to a medium tempo setting of simply offering thanks to God.
