[MUSIC] Elevation Worship & Maverick City – Talking to Jesus (Ft. Brandon Lake)

Elevation Worship & Maverick City - Talking to Jesus (Ft. Brandon Lake)

GRAMMY® nominated and Billboard #1 worship groups Elevation Worship and Maverick City released their newest single, “Talking To Jesus” featuring Brandon Lake, today on all streaming platforms. “Talking To Jesus” is the follow-up to the successful first single “Jireh,” and will be on the upcoming collaborative album Old Church Basement. This is Lake’s second appearance on an Elevation Worship project, as he was a co-writer and featured vocalist on the group’s Billboard #1 Christian radio hit “Graves Into Gardens” that released last year. “Talking to Jesus” is available now for streaming and downloading via all major digital outlets word-wide.

“Talking To Jesus” was co-written by Steven Furtick, Chris Brown, and Brandon Lake. The track, led by Lake, takes the listener on a journey from the first-person perspective of Pastor Furtick recounting when he learned how to pray as a teenager. “In a world that constantly reinforces that we have to do certain things to gain access or status, we have instant access with our Heavenly Father who is so passionately in love with us and wants to talk to us at all times,” says Lake.

The song nods to the familiar hymn with the refrain: “What a friend we have in Jesus,” carrying the message that, even though life can become complicated, God is always available for a relationship with His children. The closing verse sums it up well: “There’s no wrong way to do it / There’s no bad time start / Doesn’t have to sound pretty / Just tell him what’s on your heart / Just start talking to Jesus…”

 Talking to Jesus Lyrics by Elevation Worship & Maverick City (Ft. Brandon Lake)

Grandma used to pray out loud
By her bed every night
To me it sounded like mumbling
Like she was out of her mind
She said boy this kind of praying is what saved my life
You oughta try it some time
Now I know she was right

She was talking to Jesus
She was talking to Jesus
She’d been talking to Jesus for all of her life

Mama used to drag me to church
Sunday morning and Wednesday nights
Khaki pants and a polo shirt
Boy I put up a fight
She said, son, one day you’ll thank me for having God in your life
And yeah I know she was right
Yeah my mama was right

Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
Yeah my mama was right
Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
Yeah I love talking to Jesus
And I’ll be talking to Jesus
For the rest of my life

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh

I’ve got 3 of my own now
Trying to raise them up right
My oldest is 15 and I remember what that was like
Trying to deal with the drama, trying to figure out the questions in life
I’ve been looking for a way to show him how to make it alright

Then he walked in my room while I was saying my prayers the other night
He said I’ll come back later, I can tell you got a lot on your mind
I said it’s not an interruption, you couldn’t have picked a better time
Cause I was just talking to Jesus, come over and give it a try

We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
Oh
And now he’s talking to Jesus
Thank God he’s talking to Jesus
I hope he’s talking to Jesus
For the rest of his life

There’s no wrong way to do it
There’s no bad time to start
It don’t have to sound pretty
Just tell him what’s on your heart
Cause it’s not a religion
It’s more like a friendship
Just talk to your Father
Like you are his kid

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
You can talk to Jesus
Whenever you like

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
Just keep talking to Jesus
For the rest of your life
