Hillsong Young and Free, "Real Love" (Acoustic)

Hillsong Young and Free has released the video of its acoustic version of Real Love from its new album, Youth Revival Acoustic, which hits stores and streaming channels on Friday, February 24. While not strictly acoustic, the band’s stripped back version of Real Love hits all the right notes, offering a different spin on the Christian youth dance floor anthem. Worship leader and Real Love songwriter Alexander Pappas–he co-wrote it with Hannah Hobbs and Michael Fatkin–sounds as good as ever, offering confident vocals that are even more highlighted by the song’s more laidback arrangement. I can easily see this version performed in youth services and even adult worship services worldwide, once again a testament to the quality of the material released by the worship juggernaut that is Hillsong.

REAL LOVE Lyrics
Hillsong Young and Free

Staring into Your eyes
Makes my heart come alive
Suddenly brought to life
When I met You

Reaching beyond the skies
Running deep, stretching wide
Perfect love realized
Here with You

Yeah this love is for real
You will never let go
Never let go, oh
And it’s more than just words
Love beyond my control
Out of control

This is real love
This is real love
This is real love
This is real love

You’re pulling me closer and closer
Holding my heart till the very end
Jesus, I’m found in your freedom
This is real love, this is real love

In Your heart, I’m found
I want You, I want You
You won’t let me down
You got me, You got me

Yeah this love is for real
You will never let go
Never let go, oh
And it’s more than just words
Love beyond my control
Out of control

This is real love
This is real love
This is real love
This is real love
