Multi-platinum selling Phil Vassar reminds us, all I'm asking for is love, on "This is God." The re-imagined song is emotionally-charged with Vassar's meticulous piano melodies complimenting his haunting verses that echo a warning for God's creation to permanently unite in peace and love.
Hey, this is God
Can I please have your attention
There's a need for intervention
Man, I'm disappointed in what I'm seeing
Yeah, this is God
You fight each other in my name
Treat life like it's a foolish game
I'd say you've got the wrong ideaOh all I'm asking for is love
I've seen you hurt yourselves enough
Oh I've been waiting for a change in you
First released in 2003, "This is God" was a Top 20 hit for Vassar, peaking at No. 17 on Billboard's 'Hot Country Songs' chart. The Christian Broadcasting Network exclusively premiered the re-recorded track writing, "Phil has taken the favorite of 17 years and updated the sound with even more layers of instruments, while his velvety and sometimes gritty vocals easily fly from deep bass notes into tenor heights.
