Surrender

 

The blood seeps out of my overwhelming wounds

Hope fills my soul that the pain will be over soon.

But I try to go on with a broken heart

Ignoring that it has been pierced by a dart. 

 

A glimmer of light enters a dark cave

A voice of peace called me to be saved.

But I turned my head and refused the light

And I returned once again to the darkness of my night. 

 

Though I turned, I was unaware

It was the thought of being alone that I could not bear.

I longed for love from only one

Yet in that moment my fighting had just begun.

 

A prince of peace appeared to me

The light of life I chose not to see.

Why, O why do I reach for a knife?

Why do I ignore the happiness of life?

 

Or am I mistaken and I shall live alone?

With a deep, dark wish that at me one will cast a stone?

A way out I want, but what is it I need?

Perhaps a path for Jesus to lead.

 

I cried and I pleaded my life's just too rough.

But Jesus said to me, "My love is good enough."

I tried and I tried but I could not comprehend

With God above, I will always have a friend.

 

But not me, not me, O how I cried

But Jesus came over me and made my fear subside.

He opened my eyes and made me no longer blind

In Him, in Him, what Love did I find!

 

Unending love, amazing grace!

My anguish relieved from upon my face.

In his love, I shall not budge

Not once at all till the day he comes to judge.

 

O, glorify Him in all that I do!

Praise God, Praise God, for His love tis true!

It's so much more than only me and you.

Through Jesus Christ, my life is new.
