Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)
Words and Music by Joel Houston

CCLI: 7037924

Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost
I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the morning has come
Lord my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul
waits only for You
And I will sing till the miracle comes

Even when the morning comes
I’ll praise You
Even when the fight is won
I’ll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Following the journey of the song through the first four times we ever played it live, from studio to arena— There is a parallel to be found within the narrative of seasons and days, the constant-unpredictibility of life, and the unchanging, unfailing nature of God and His faithfulness — and what singing His praises unlocks in us. In this journey, the song serves as the constant and honest-confession within us, as the environment and atmosphere changes like the seasons come-and-go around us.

Even When it Hurts is a Praise Song – not exactly in the new-traditional happy-clappy-Sunday-morning sense — no, this is the kind written to sound its loudest in the cold-lonely-silence of the darkest night, or the heart-drenched-desperation of the heaviest of tears. It’s a song that finds it’s voice in the moments and seasons where to all common sense and logic, to sing, and be thankful for anything at all, let alone sing a song of praise to God, makes no sense at all – when the fight seems lost and all strength gone with it – when it’s hard to even find the words — louder then, this is that kind of praise song.


We are making the download available on our website (hil.so/EWIH) – and humbly ask that if you can, you would consider donating any amount to the World Vision Syrian refugee fund.

if there is anything to be taken from our own hardship and God’s grace and compassion toward us — and even if we are still waiting in our own difficult night for the morning to come, there is perhaps nothing more powerful that we could do, than to take our focus off ourselves, and help others who are suffering. Together we are believing that our generosity, will ring even louder than our song, and will tangibly become the miracle to the desperate plight and prayers and of so many who have lost everything – It’s impossible to fathom the enormity of the crisis, and the turmoil people have been through, and are going through – forced to flee the oppression and war-ravaged-hell-on-earth they once called home, and the daunting uncertainty of all that is before them.

  1. This has always been my redemption song. I'm currently having my anxiety for the upcoming board exams. I know personally, I can never pass that exam. But with God's grace and plans (with perseverance), I will. CPA by 2022 ❤️ (In God's grace)

  2. I recently went for my visa interview and got denied after weeks of prayers, fasting and preparation.
    I thought i was getting a ray of hope after some tough hard years. I thought it was gonna be my breath of fresh air, but i lost it.
    My heart keeps recounting my failures and mistakes.
    It's a struggle to pray now. It's been so tough for the past 2years.

    It hurts yet again, but I'll praise you..
    It doesn't make any sense but I'll praise you 🥲🥲

  3. Pernah berada di titik jurang terdalam di hidup saya, dan saya yakin, Tuhan tidak pernah sejengkal pun menjauh dari saya, tidak pernah sedetik pun meninggalkan saya

    Dia ada bersama saya di kegelapan itu, sampai pada waktunya Tuhan menopang saya bangkit dari keterpurukan

    Tuhan ada di hidup saya dari dulu, sekarang, dan sampai kapanpun

  4. I will extol the Lord at ALL times; His praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:1-4🙌❤

  5. My heart feels so crowded right now. Whenever I feel tight, I listen to this song. This is the first time I ever commented in their videos. It feels so different right now. My anxiety kicks in. But as the song said, even when it hurts I will praise Him. 🥲

  6. Please pray for much peace, strength and inner healing for myself and my dear children (+ the rest of my family😊) also for major restorative work and stable grounds for our nest 😅in Jesus' Mighty name… Thank you all kindly

  7. I never comment on videos…but lately I have been battling feelings of inadequacy and the worst part is I always act as if I don't care …lost my best friend and sibling 2 years ago and I have been dealing with complicated grief…Pray for me!

  8. I’m at one of the lowest times in my life and all I ask is for a little bit of grace and mercy. Just a little. I don’t ask for much… Jesus you know everything. My deepest everything. Please listen. I sit here knowing that I’ve really messed up. You know Jesus. Every time I hear this music. It’s like a breath of fresh air. Worship music. Tears drip down my face. Knowing that I will only sing your praise.
