Needtobreathe, “Walking on Water”

Contemporary Christian pop/rock group Needtobreathe has released Walking on Water to Christian AC. What makes this single different from previous releases is (1) its video is a faux movie trailer, made in part to push sales of the single, because (2) sales of Walking on Water will go to the Dream Center Network.

Written by Bear and Bo Rineheart with Matt Maher, Walking on Water has that distinctly masculine sound that makes Needtobreathe such powerful music to listen to. Terrific song with a fantastic message.

WALKING ON WATER Lyrics
Needtobreathe

The wind is strong, the water is deep
My heart is heavy and my mind won’t sleep
Oh can you heal, my fear it breathes
I need to know if You’re the shadow I can see
I wanna run to You when the waves break through
I wanna run to You and not turn back

There’s no turning back
Nothing in the past
My eyes on You again
Can’t see nothing at all
But Your outstretched arms
Help me believe it
Though I falter
You got me walking on water

The ocean’s singing, the song of grace
But if I’m honest with myself, I am still afraid
I wanna run to You when the waves break through
I’m gonna run to You and not turn back

There’s no turning back
Nothing in the past
My eyes on You again
Can’t see nothing at all
But Your outstretched arms
Help me believe it
Though I falter
You got me walking on water

I was sinking like a stone again
I was halfway in the grave and then
I looked up and saw Your face again
You pulled me out of the water, water, water
There’s no turning back
Nothing in the past
My eyes on You again
Can’t see nothing at all
But Your outstretched arms
Help me believe it
Though I falter
You got me walking on water
Though I falter
You got me walking on water, water, water
You got me walking on water, water, water, water
