MercyMe "Then Christ Came"

"I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me would not remain in darkness." - John 12:46

 If you were in Orlando at CMB Momentum yesterday morning, then you heard the band perform this BRAND-NEW song first!  If you weren't, the good news is that you didn't have to wait very long for Fair Trade and MercyMe to announce the release of their highly anticipated new single “Then Christ Came” – officially impacting July 8.

“I initially started writing ‘Then Christ Came’ with a dear friend of mine named David Leonard over two years ago.  For two solid days we were just trying to write anything… and were coming up with nothing.  At the last minute, we figured out the chorus to this song, and that demo is actually on our most recent album inhale (exhale).  But the song wasn’t done and sat unfinished for quite a while.  More recently, we decided to finish the thing out with Phil Wickham and Jason Ingram and are just so excited with how it turned out.  Sometimes we over complicate things trying to come up with new creative ways to sing about Jesus.  But the message of this song is simple in that it’s about what I was before and then Jesus showed up and now everything has changed.  We love how it turned out and hope you like it too!” -Bart Millard (MercyMe)
