SONG OF THE WEEK: Take Over by Aaran Shust

Some songs are just beautiful.  “I mean throw back your head, close your eyes and let it wash over you” beautiful.  This song draws me for the beauty of the guitar and the gentleness of Aaron Shust’s voice.  But as always with me, I live and breathe the lyrics.  Maybe they’re just what you need to hear too.

I tried to run
I tried to fight You
But I’m done
I’m giving up
I’ve learned to trust You, Your love

No I’m singing…

Can You take over?
Take over
Can You take over me?
I’ve been here over and over again
Here on my knees
I’m only closer and closer
To where I wanna be
When You take over, take over
Can You take over me?

I tried before
To let go
And I just hold on more
Amazing Lord
I need the strength to let go
And be Yours

So now I’m singing…

That’s favorite line in the song is “So now I’m singing…”  How about you?  Are you singing now?

I found a neat video that has Aaron Shust playing acoustic Guitar and teaching how he plays the song.  Then he sings this sweet song.  Here is is

OH YEAH!  Aaron Shust is also coming to St Louis if you’re in the area.  Here’s the link to more info…
