Kutless, “Even If”

Contemporary Christian pop-rock band Kutless has released Even If as the sophomore single from its new album, Believer.

Kutless has virtually owned the “worship rock” genre for quite some time now, with 2009 release It Is Well being the seminal album that launched it all. Carrier single Carry Me to the Cross peaked at number 15, not too shabby, What Faith Can Do was a two-month-long chart-topper in 2010. I’m a tad bit surprised the group went with another worshipful ballad for a second single – I would have gone with If It Ends Today – but we’ll take what we can get. Christian Soft AC/Inspo is all over this one; expect an easy Top 10 finish for Even If in this genre.

Kutless on Inspo. Wow, how times have changed.

Many music critics believe that Believer was worth the three-year wait and was one of the best Contemporary Christian albums thus far this year. CBN’s Lisa Webber, in particular, thinks Even If is one of the top three songs on the album. Having said that, I was underwhelmed by Even If. I find the production a tad bit monotonous, and this underwhelms the beautiful Scott Krippayne/Tony Wood lyrics. Other than that, it’s a great song and should do well, although my hopes aren’t high for a finish better than Carry Me to the Cross.

EVEN IF Lyrics

Sometimes all we have to hold on to
Is what we know is true of who You are
So when the heartache hits like a hurricane
That could never change who You are
And we trust in who You are

Even if the healing doesn’t come
And life falls apart
And dreams are still undone
You are God You are good
Forever faithful One
Even if the healing
Even if the healing doesn’t come

Lord we know Your ways are not our ways
So we set our faith in who You are
Even though You reign high above us
You tenderly love us
We know Your heart
And we rest in who You are

You’re still the Great and Mighty One
We trust You always
You’re working all things for our good
We’ll sing your praise

You are God and we will bless You
As the Good and Faithful One
You are God and we will bless You
Even if the healing doesn’t come
Even if the healing doesn’t come
