This modern day rendition mixes the comfort of the original song with Smokie’s signature sound. He explains that it was not only a way to put his spin on a gospel classic, but to pay tribute to the originator, Milton Brunson of The Thompson Community Singers (and later Kim McFarland).

“This [was] an opportunity to go back and pay tribute…It’s a powerful song…a little nostalgic but it was my way of putting a new twist on it and lending my voice to a wave that God has already began,” Smokie said.

The lyrics of the song, deriving directly from biblical scriptures, are dynamic without explanation.

“And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”  -John 14:13-17 NKJV
