Trevor Toews / Songs / Come Walk on the Water With Me

sweet, simple country waltz

Trevor Toews' recording of "Come Walk on the Water With Me" is an acoustic country waltz, featureing acoustic guitar, harmonica, upright bass, and drums playing brushes only, and 2-part harmony vocals. The approach is simple, sweet, and rustic, speaking from Jesus' point of view to all believers, inspired by the story of Peter trying to walk out on the water with Jesus. From a songwriting standpoint, this tune is verse-chorus-verse-chorus, etc. Sometimes, it feels like Trevor reaches for easy rhymes when with a little extra effort, he might say something more meaningful and inspiring. For example, the couplet, "We'll skip, dance, and sing, like a bird on the wing." When birds are in flight, they neither skip, nor dance, nor sing, so this is not an apt metaphor. The image of skipping, dancing, and singing on the water is appealing, and extrapolates on the Biblical story in a Paulist way, but the image of the bird in flight doesn't fit. Maybe with more thought/dreaming, a different rhyme might come, that conveys the meaning more fully and congruently. Another example, "no storm will succeed". Storms don't have goals, so again the metaphor doesn't quite work, although I understand what Trevor is trying to say.

Beautiful!

Sir you have such a soothing, harmonic tone about yourself. Your song speaks to the soul and truly invites you to want to reach out to the Lord to walk on the water. The harmony was very good. Your music was beautiful. I'm hoping that you are sharing this talent in the house of the Lord. I would recommend sharing this song in a songwriting contest as well. Be blessed and bring the world more to hear!

very encouraging!

Love the lyrics and the music, right country feel too. This song has a bluegrass/folk feel with it. I can hear that background voice as well. Acoustic guitar is my favorite instrument wish i could play it.

Authentic

Hey Trevor, I enjoyed your song! It has an authentic country vibe. The music is easy to listen to. The words are memorable especially the Chorus. They are encouraging and give life and inspiration. A poem....... So creative. Kelley

Beautiful Tone

Beautiful tone, simple and sweet worship would have loved to hear the verse just a little more scripture based to reference Peter and Jesus because some may not know the story and adding that verse can lengthen the song but I love it the chorus is very catchy.

I don't listen to much Country, But...

I don't listen to much country, but i really like this song. The lyrics spoke to, even more so after I read how you wrote that the Lord gave this to your aunt. I think this is a really good song, thanks for sharing!

Come walk on the water with me

Beautiful song with a very good message. It gives hope to know that Jesus invites us to come to him to experience his supernatural power, to see his miracles... in faith we can come to him, be with him, walk with him... Thank you for sharing your song.

Hey buddy, what are you up to? Your song is awesome. A few years back I wrote a song "Here He Comes Walking On The Water". Keep up the good work and writing those awesome songs. The Lord needs more great material written by His warrors.

Poems to songs

I think it’s a good poem turned into a song keep on keeping on for the Lord I’ve been writing songs since I was a young woman and it’s very rewarding sometimes I write poems And have turned them into songs this is a great way to write songs.

Great lyrics!

I love your Aunt's words they are impactful and blessed me greatly. The music fits the song well and easy to get lost in(a good thing). I strive for simplicity in my owns songs too. Your voice is shaky and lacks the power I think this song needs. I can feel your emotion though and expect this was done in a home studio which makes it harder to get high-quality vocals. You have a talent for arrangement and if you ever want to work on a song together I would love that.
