It’s easy to sing
When there’s nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I’m held to the flame…

These lyrics shoot straight into the heart, as MercyMe renders this brand new single “Even If” from their album “Lifer.”

Bart Millard, lead vocalist, narrates: “The song ‘Even If’ is incredibly special to me. My son Sam is 15 years old, and he’s been a diabetic since he was two. When you’re a parent of a child with any kind of chronic illness, these things don’t go away. You have a lot of good days, but some days you feel like you’re losing bad. I was in the midst of one of those bad days when ‘Even If’ was written. This song is a reminder to people in these difficult situations that don’t seem to go away. God was worthy long before any of these circumstances even showed up. It’s a foundation that was built long before those difficulties came to be. This song is a declaration to God that even if He went silent and never said another word, He’s still worthy to be praised, and He’s our greatest hope in the midst of the trial.”
