Matthew West – Take Heart (Audio, Video & Lyrics)

American gospel singer Matthew West shares a beautiful inspirational new music with the rest of the world, a new song he titled ‘Take Heart’

Clearly from the song, West is speaking calmness into the troubled waters, he speaks peace into the perplexed minds and soul as the world goes through a first of its kind novel pandemic – COVID-19.

Matthew West shares this;

“My family’s happy place is the beach. I wish we could be there now. But like the rest of the world, we are on lockdown. I was thinking the other day about one particular windy day at the beach when I decided to take a dip in the ocean despite the especially strong waves. The waves were relentless and kept hitting me one after the other. No matter how firmly I planted my feet in the sandy ocean floor, the waves were too much and knocked me over. That’s how I’ve felt lately with the state of our world. Wave after of wave has hit me and threatened to take me under. Waves of doubt. Waves of fear. Waves of anxiety. Waves of financial pressure. Waves of questions. Waves of sleeplessness. But unlike that sand under my feet that gave way and let me fall, I know I have a firmer foundation to stand on in this life. “In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33)” This song, “Take Heart” was written in the middle of one of those waves and it brought me a little peace. May it do the same for you.”

LYRICS OF TAKE HEART

Woke up this morning and
Life as you know it
Looks nothing like the kind of life you knew before
All of a sudden
Fear store the headlines
And it don’t feel safe to even step outside your door

In this world you will have trouble
But I have overcome the world

Take heart
Take a breath
Let me lift that heavy weight up off your chest
Take my hear
I know it’s looking dark
When the world falls all around you
I won’t let you fall apart
Take heart

Do you remember singing
Back when you were younger
He’s got the whole world in his hands
Well, that’s still true

I hold your family all your friends and all your loved ones
And even when you’re barely holding on
I’m holding you

Take heart
Take a breath
Let me lift that heavy weight up off your chest
Take my hear
I know it’s looking dark
When the world falls all around you
I won’t let you fall apart
Take heart

In this world you will have trouble
But I have overcome the world
