If … were a Christian song

Mal ganz ehrlich, es gibt zurzeit wieder echt viele coole Songs. Und bei richtig erfolgreichen Liedern lassen die unterschiedlichsten Coverversionen auch nicht lange auf sich warten. Cover der besonderen Art kommen von Beckah Shae. Sie nimmt Top-Songs und verpasst ihnen einen anderen Text, wie der Titel schon verrät, if they were Christian Songs.

Eigene Alben hat sie bereits veröffentlicht, und davon gar nicht mal so wenige. Die Amerikanerin Rebecca Shocklee, Künstlername Beckah Shae, ist in CCM-Kreisen kein unbekannter Name mehr. Vor nicht allzu langer Zeit hat sie damit begonnen, Top-Titel aus den Musikcharts zu covern. Allerdings nicht, wie viele andere es machen, indem sie sich neue Versionen und Arrangements überlegt, sondern indem sie neue Lyrics schreibt. Ganz im Stile eines Worship-Songs, so, als ob der Song ein christlicher Song wäre. Dabei sind schon einige großartige Cover entstanden. Entscheidet selbst, welche Version besser ist, Original oder Christian Version:

Camila Cabello´s “Havana”

We need to wake up / acknowledge His presence
When He comes in the room / and hear what He´s saying
cause there´s a message / That´s right we need the truth
We´re doin´ forever in a minute / Your race is up to you
And Abba says He´s gone help us win it / He got me feeling like

Ooh – ooh – ooh
I knew it when I met him / He´s loved me since forever
Got me feeling like ooh – ooh – ooh
so I just gotta tell Him / I love Him so

Hosanna, Hosanna
All of my heart is cryin´
Hosanna, Hosanna
He´s coming back soon / we need Him more than ever
All of my heart is cryin´ Hosanna
He´s raising up a standard
Hosanna, Hosanna

Taylor Swift´s “Look what you made me do”

I don´t like his perfect bribes / now I laugh when he lies
´cause I know I´ll be alright / it´s true, no, he ain´t like You

So I got smarter / I´ll go harder till the end of time
´cause yeah, You raised me, from the dead / You do it all the time
still, I could search the whole wide world / and never ever find
I was blind / but You´ve opened my eyes

There´s no one else like you

Ed Sheeran´s “Shape of You”

You come over and start up a conversation with just me
And I trust you, ´cause you understand / Then you take my hand, woh!
You sweep me away in Your peace / and then we start to dance

And I´m singing like / Lord you know I love your love
Your love´s amazing, to choose somebody like me / And now I´ma follow Your lead
If they think I´m crazy, I don´t care / I´ll say hey, I can´t say enough

How you laid down Your life, / so we could be free
So now I´ma follow Your lead / C´mon, c´mon now follow His lead
You are Love, and I worship You / whatever You say, I will do

You have my heart, show me the truth / Elohim, breathe on me
Let your glory fill this room / Till everything smells just like You
Everyday discovering something brand new / Elohim, breathe on me

Zedd & Alessia Cara´s “Stay”

Waiting for the time to pass you by / hope the wings of grace will change your mind
I could give ten thousand reasons why / you should trust God ´cause he´s got you

If you just believe, yeah, I promise you would see that / we can stay forever loved
Living in His freedom, drinking of His spirit / hidden in the risen Son
I could give a million reasons why / you should know Him ´cause you know that

All you have to do is pray / a minute don´t waste no time
the clock is ticking just pray / All you have to do is wait a second
he´s by your side / the clock is ticking just pray

  1. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.
