In November 1979, Smith suffered a breakdown that led to his recommitment to Christianity. The next day he auditioned for a new contemporary Christian music (CCM) group, Higher Ground, as a keyboardist and got the job. His lead vocals were heard on much of CCM radio with the single, “I Am”. It was on his first tour with Higher Ground, playing mostly in churches, that Smith was finally able to put the drugs and alcohol behind him.


Verse 1:

I am the root of David,

the bright and morning star

I am the lion of Judah.

I am, I am

I am Alpha and Omega,

the beginning and the end.

the first and the last,

I am, I am



I am faithful and true.

I am the Word of God.

I am the lamb.

I am, I am


Verse 2:

I am the resurrection,

and He that lives.

I am alive forever.

Amen, Amen.


Verse 3:

I am King of kings

and Lord of lords.

I am the holy, holy Lord,

God Almighty which was

and is and is to come.

I am, I am,

I am that I am.
