This is a song about salvation. When we choose to lay down our self-centredness and instead embrace Jesus and put him in control of our lives, we invite Him to take over.

As verse 2 expresses – it is more than saying ‘I love you’, it is more than words – it is a love that expresses itself through action, through a life layed down.

If you like the song and would like to sing it at your church, please do. Please also remember to include its use in your church’s CCLI report. Thank you. A free chord chart can be found at the bottom of this page that you can download.

Taken Over

CCLI Number: 4449494

It’s more than a love song that I sing
It’s more than a feeling deep within
It’s more than the sunrise in Your eyes
It’s more than everything

It’s more than devotion ever true
It’s more than the words ‘I love You’
It’s more than the truth that’s in Your eyes
It’s more than everything

You have taken over
You are my true Saviour
You have taken over me
So completely

It’s more than those words whispered at night
It’s more than the dreams that take to flight
It’s more than the love I have to gain
It’s more than everything
