Mercy Me’s Bart Millard wrote this song titled “The Hurt & the Healer” for the loss of his cousin who was a firefighter killed in the line of duty . In an interview with The Arizona Republic’s Ed Masley, Mallard says that the song came out of the whole moment when he was helping his family get through the hard times. He says, “the whole idea of the song is that you feel more alive when the hurt and the healer collide.” I hope you enjoy this beautiful song. It is a single before the album is released and can be found on iTunes. You will love the message.
