What Faith Can Do

Today I need to share a song with you. It's powerful.

The kids and I first heard this at the Lifelight festival in September. Kutless was the Friday night band - more than 100,000 people standing in the dark with their hands raised. It gives me chills all over again just thinking about it. This band is so fun, so rock-n-roll... and SO POWERFULLY moving.

This was their new song and even though I'd never heard it before that night, I loved it immediately.

I think you will, too.






What Faith Can Do
by Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think its more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

It doesn't matter what you've heard
Impossible is not a word
It's just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody's scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It'll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You do have a chance
(That's what faith can do)
When the world says you can't
It'll tell you that you can!

I've seen dreams that move the mountains,
Hope that doesn't ever end
...Even when the sky is falling.
And I've seen miracles just happen,
Silent prayers get answered,
Broken hearts become brand new.
That's what faith can do


That's what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

  1. Love the song. Al and I are so happy that there are many Christian song writers and bands that have songs in the mainstream now. So many kids have no idea the songs are Christain and the message gets through when they would have never listened to it if it had been labelled as such.-
