  • Lyrics
  • The first single from MercyMe's Welcome To the New album finds MercyMe frontman Bart Millard encouraging Christians to rejoice in their salvation and new life in Christ. He said: "This is about enjoying the fact that we're changed. It's about having the joy and living life that way – Christians are supposed to have joy."
  • Millard explained the song's meaning in a video interview: "I know its a little bit of a departure from what we normally do, but we're just having a good time," he said. "The idea was, that we understand who we are in Christ, we understand our identity, and it would be hard to sit still. So we thought that was a great song to kick off the whole record."
