MICHAEL W SMITH - Sovereign Over Us

This song is from the album Sovereign(2014), released on May 13, 2014.
I loved the beauty of this song. The slow intro and the fast paced outros, everything felt amazing. I loved the passion and the emotion in his voice, it made the song very touching. The chords were simple and suited the song perfectly. The use of the B Minor chord in the bridge brought a great vibe.
