Grade = A-

The newest release from Portland-based worship band The Neverclaim is grounded in John 16:33.

Singer Jeremiah Carlson says, ““Almost every song on The Joy is centered around the joy of the Lord as our strength; our identity in Christ and the victory that’s won in Christ. Not that we shy away from the reality that living in a broken world affects all of us, but despite our hardships, we have access to a greater reality that fills our hearts with joy. We will face battles in life, but Jesus has won the war. We believe people are hungry for authentic joy, a joy that is not based on circumstances, but on the fact that God is for us, so nothing can be against us.”

You’ve probably heard the title track on radio. I enjoyed the Matthew 28:19 inspired “Go,” will the anthem “Rise” is a call to action.

While there’s nothing profound in the lyrics, this uplifting record makes it clear where the bands stands.

The Neverclaim also partners with One Child Matters (, a child sponsorship organization helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children in poverty-stricken areas of the world. Through its ministry programs, children receive food, education, medical aid and hope in Jesus Christ
