Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling recording artist Newsboys have launched a lyric video for its powerful new single "The Cross Has The Final Word." Highlighted by a reunion with former Newsboys frontman and solo artist Peter Furler, the song, written by Cody Carnes, was produced by Grammy-winner Seth Mosley, along with Furler and Michael "X" O'Connor for Full Circle Music.
Watch the new lyric video below:
"We loved the message from the moment we heard this song and felt called to help share it through our ministry. What an awesome reminder that Jesus has overcome the grave and His love will never be defeated."
- Newsboys Frontman Michael Tate
"Reuniting with the Newsboys for this track was so much fun and it brought back many memories. This song-like so many others throughout the band's history-is a bold proclamation of faith, and it was a privilege to be part of the recording. 'The Cross Has The Final Word' is all about the power of Jesus and the great work He did for us on the cross. It's truly something Christians place our hope in. That something started on the earth in the beginning when man disobeyed and were separated from God. Doors were opened that brought in powerful things like sickness, disease, hurt, and pain. Science can't defeat those things. Drugs can't defeat them. Alcohol can't defeat them. Buddha can't. The New Age movement can't. Muhammad can't. The only thing that can is something more powerful than all of them... something more powerful than death. The only thing more powerful than death is Jesus Christ and the reconciliation of what He did on the cross."
- Singer/songwriter/producer Peter Furler, Newsboys' former lead vocalist, and founding member.
