'Then Christ Came' MercyMe Official Lyric Video

Check out the lyric video for the new song ‘Then Christ Came’ by MercyMe.

“Like a soldier with no armor in the middle of the battle, I was broken, I was broken
It was only getting darker, in the valley of the shadow, I was hopeless, I was hopeless
I never thought that I would ever see the day when every single chain would break
Or hear the voice of heaven call my name, then Christ came changing everything
He took my sin and shame away, now every song I sing will be for Him
Ever since the moment He walked in, then Christ came”

In the beginning of the lyric video, John 12:46 flashes across the screen. “I have come as a light into the world so that everyone who believes in me would not remain in darkness.” Then the lyrics to the song start to appear, and the words also show up in the shape of a flame.

‘Then Christ Came’ is a song that has been two years in the making. It was originally planned for MercyMe’s tenth album, inhale (exhale), but frontman Bart Millard and his co-writer, David Leonard, did not finish the song in time. Knowing that the song was special, Bart Millard revisited the lyrics and finished the song with Jason Ingram and Phil Wickham.

“We are just so excited with how it turned out,” Bart Millard shares. “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 who 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!”

Many people online shared about how the song has impacted them and how important MercyMe’s music is to them.

“Well, there's my joyful tears this morning!” one person writes online. “MercyMe, you have no clue how you have impacted and stewarded my faith through your music.”

“What an incredibly powerful song,” another person comments. “MercyMe makes it incredibly tough to pick a favorite song. Thank you for always lifting my spirit with your music.”
