Lyrics

Some say, “Don’t give up”
And hope that your good is good enough
Head down, keep on working
If you could earn it, you deserve it
Some say, “Push on through”
After all, it’s the least that you can do
But don’t buy, what they’re selling
It couldn’t be further from the truth

What if I were the one to tell you
That the fight’s already been won
Well, I think your day’s about to get better
What if I were the one to tell you
That the work’s already been done
It’s not good news
It’s the best news ever

Some say, “Don’t ask for help”
God helps the ones who help themselves
Press on, get it right
Otherwise, get left behind
Some say, “He’s keeping score”
So try hard, then try and lean on God
Hold up, if this weren’t true
Explain to me, what the cross is for

What if I were the one to tell you
That the fight’s already been won
Well, I think your day’s about to get better
What if I were the one to tell you
That the work’s already been done
It’s not good news
It’s the best news ever
Best news ever

So won’t you come
Come all you weary and your burdened
You heavy laden and you hurting
For all of you with nothing left
Come and find rest

What if I were the one to tell you
That the fight’s already been won
Well, I think your day’s about to get better
What if I were the one to tell you
That the work’s already been done
It’s not good news
It’s the best news ever
Best news ever

It’s not good news
It’s the best news ever
Best news ever
It’s not good news
It’s the best news ever

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

From their project, "Lifer". A great follow up to "Grace Got You", "Best New Ever" almost feels like a next chapter. God's already won it all for us. The fight has already been won. The struggle we face throughout the journey of our lives is not in vain. It not only has a purpose, but God already knows exactly how the battles we face will be won. So encouraging for those trusting God to the best of their ability, especially those who have been through, going through or will walk through difficult season(s).

"It's the way I grew up. Be all you can be. You get what you deserve. Work harder, try harder. But what if someone came and told me the work has already been done... The fight has already been won! That's what make the Gospel not just the good news, but the Best News Ever!" - Bart Millard
