In MercyMe’s newest song “The Hurt and The Healer,” lead singer Bart Millard explains that even though there is hurt in the world, the Cross is where the hurt collides with the healing.
"There's this sense that when you go through losing someone, there's an irony of feeling more alive than any other before,” reflected Bart. “It's that moment when we embrace our kids a little tighter; we reevaluate what's important in life."
MercyMe first captured many people’s attention with their song “I Can Only Imagine” in 2001 which gave comfort to many dealing with the loss of loved ones in the wake of the September 11th attacks. Since then, the band has continually released songs that have inspired those in times of need including Homesick, Word of God Speak and Hold Fast.
