Third Day


‘Tunnel’ Third Day Live From The Farewell Tour - Christian Music Videos

Christian and multi-Grammy Award-winning band Third Day turned in an inspiring and moving performance of a song with a positive, upbeat message that encourages listeners to continue fighting and keep going during trying circumstances.

Life is not always an easy or pleasant experience. Overwhelming situations can crop up, leading to extreme pain, hurt and frustration. There are instances when giving up, and throwing in the towel feels like the sensible option. But as much as we may feel like it at times, that’s never the right choice. God has something much better in store, often right on the other side of the hurt and heartache.

In a clip posted on YouTube, Third Day performed their hit song “Tunnel” live in concert to an adoring and raucous crowd who assisted the band by providing their vocals.

The inspiring and uplifting lyrics are for anyone who is currently enduring an overwhelming and difficult period. The track pushes those individuals to keep fighting the good fight, and to never give up because “there is a light at the end of the tunnel for you.”

“There’s a light at the end of this tunnel for you, for you
And there’s a light at the end of this tunnel
Shining bright at the end of this tunnel for you, for you
So keep holding on”

About halfway through the nearly 4-minute clip, lead singer Mac Powell explains why he was initially apprehensive about including the song “Tunnel” on one of the group’s albums. He says he was afraid that the message and the lyrics would get lost in the tune’s loud, boisterous rock sound.

However, he happily admits that he was totally, and completely wrong about his initial hesitancy on “Tunnel.”

“I was, thankfully, realized I was dead wrong about that,” he said. “Because it’s a song that, through the years when we’ve done it, I can literally look out every time we’ve done it and see someone crying. And see someone, a friend beside somebody else consoling them because it's a song that’s helped a lot of people get through some difficult situations.”
