Surrender

 
 
I had a plan, as my own man,
to live out every dream
I had desires, ambitions too
laid smooth without a seam!
 
This life is mine for me to live
to do just as I please
I'll live for self and gain great wealth
to live my life in ease!
 
But then I heard a still small voice
reminding of a debt
My life was His, He'd paid in full
my life's plans He had set...
 
I feared He'd not be good as I
at planning out my years
But then He said some things to me
that helped remove my fears:
 
"I am God - The Only God -
Creator of all you see
Before the world or life began
all there was was Me!
 
You could trust yourself in this -
the end regret and pain -
but if you trust to me your life
You'll only ever gain!
 
And don't forget, though the choice is yours,
I bought you on the tree -
And truly, it's just a fair exchange
Surrendering all to me!"
