Newsboys, "Your Love Never Fails" [OPC10 2013.2.24]

The Newsboys enters the OPC10 with the second single off their album God's Not Dead. First recorded by Chris McClarney, their follow-up to the title track is a praise and worship song that talks about God's unchanging and unfailing love. While the original is more personal and reflective, this version is arranged in a more upbeat and celebratory manner.

Upon knowing that this song bears the same title as McClarney's song, the thought that came to my mind was: "Is this a cover or an original?" But what's amazing was that when I heard it for the first time, it wasn't until the chorus that I realized it is indeed the same song. So, hats off to Michael Tait and the band for doing a great job in making this song their own, although I would have preferred them to have also kept the "Thank you, Jesus" ad lib on the second verse instead of just singing "Oh no, oh no, yeah."

Still, the song is a very beautiful reminder that indeed, nothing can separate us from God's love, that He has new mercy for us everyday, and that He makes all things work together for our good. Listen to "Your Love Never Fails" below, as it debuts at #1 on the Overall Picks chart this week:
