Clay Crosse - I Surrender All





I have wrestled in the darkness

of this lonely pilgrim land

Raising strong and mighty fortresses

that I alone command

But these castles

I've constructed by the

strength of my own hand

Are just temporary kingdoms

on foundations made of sand


In the middle of the battle

I believe I've finally found

I'll never know the thrill of victory

'til I'm willing to lay down

All my weapons of defense and

earthly strategies of war

So I'm laying down my arms and

running helplessly to Yours


I surrender all my silent hopes and dreams

Though the price to follow costs me everything

I surrender all my human soul desires

If sacrifice requires

That all my kingdoms fall

I surrender all


'My Place Is With You' (1993) 

David Moffitt, Regie Hamm



If the source of my ambition

is the treasure I obtain

If I measure my successes on

a scale of earthly gain

If the focus of my vision

is the status I attain

My accomplishments are

worthless and my efforts are in vain


So I lay aside these trophies

to pursue a higher crown

And should You choose somehow

to use the life I willingly lay down

I surrender all the triumph for

it's only by Your grace

I relinquish all the glory,

I surrender all the praise


Everything I am, all I've done,

and all I've known

Now belongs to You,

the life I live is not my own

Just as Abraham laid Isaac

on the sacraficial fire

If all I have is all that You desire

I surrender all
