Christian Eede writes, "The track is a ten-minute rock-opera statement melding together various influences from hard-hitting stoner rock to doom-laden metal."

NPR's All Songs Considered
also featured the track, stating, "When you record on one of Scandinavia's largest pipe organs, the result damn well better be a thing of monstrous beauty and bombast. Anna von Hausswolff took her band and longtime producer Filip Leyman to the concert hall Acusticum in Piteå, Sweden, to work on her third album, The Miraculous. If the first single, "Come Wander With Me/Deliverance," is any indication, be prepared to meet thy blown-out, organ doom."

The track is streaming below and The Miraculous can be pre-ordered here in LP and CD format.
