Contemporary artist Cody Carnes' hit "Run to the Father" has found success around the world, making movements on charts, such as Billboard's U.S. Hot Christian Songs. It's been played at churches and on the radio and the versatile versions below showcase the core strength of the track. Any song that can work well in multiple genres, is a well-written song. 

Cody co-wrote the song with songwriters Matt Maher and Ran Jackson.
 Cody shares, "This song is really just about any moment that you need to run to the Father. Yes, it can be about salvation which’s a big part of the song, but it's also just about needing God every day. So many times, we want to run away from God but the reality is that God has open arms. He's a loving father. He's kind. He's a healer. He's a surgeon. He's a friend."

Here are a few covers that have captured our attention.  Tell us which ones you like best. 

Seventh Day Slumber

Rockers Seventh Day Slumber turned this worship song into a certifiable rock track, complete with epic guitars and soaring vocals. Found on their recent worship release,
Unseen The Lion and The Lion, this is the heaviest version on our list and will instantly get your attention.


Caleb + Kelsey

Married couple, Caleb and Kelsey Grimm, better known as Caleb + Kelsey deliver this intimate and acoustic version. This is great for anyone who loves piano ballads.

 

Neon Feather

Producer/programmer Ben Thompson, better known as Neon Feather, remixes music for a myriad of Christian artists. So, it's not surprising that he would turn the worshipful "Run to the Father" into an electronic dance song. 
 

Shane & Shane

The duo included a version of “Run to the Father” on their 2021 project, The Worship Initiative and it's, by far, my favorite because I truly felt the presence of the Lord while listening. Shane & Shane owns this song with the help of artist Dinah Wright.
 

 
VOUS Worship

The worship collective, who just released a new live album, I Need Revival, gives the song the full Sunday morning treatment with a live band, multiple vocals, and a building chorus that fills the room. 
 

Matt Maher

Matt Maher helped co-write "Run to the Father" so, of course, he's recorded his own version. Matt's take on the song is a worshipful duet between him and his piano.
