Take it all Lord, I don’t need it


All this anger, all this fear


Can’t be prideful or conceded


It’s only by grace that I am here


I don’t need fortune, I don’t need fame


All that glitters may not be gold


The God of heaven knows my name


To that reality I will hold


I give you all I have


In exchange for what you give


My present, my future, and my past


Only in you can I truly live


Take my hopes and my dreams


You can have my family too


My ends can only justify my means


If my end is found in you


Give me Your wisdom and You take mine


It has not gotten me very far


The things conjured in my mind


Rarely represent the way they are


Take my vision, the things I see


Lift the fog of natural view


Take my hand and walk with me


Allow me Lord to walk with you


Not known to quit, but this time I’m done


I now realize my limitations


I fall into the open hands of Your son


To mold me into a new creation


Palms up, head down, I fall at your feet


Tired and weary, soaked in tears


All my needs now Yours to meet


Looking forward to better years


Thank you Jesus for your mercy


I praise you Lord for you grace


Your sacrifice has made me worthy


I can’t wait to behold your face
