The Sweet Surrender; in the world to salvation.
Oh Sweet Surrender.
Oh Lord when I think how you were always there for me.
When I sought to the world to see what I could take from thee.
It was in wealth and fame I looked to find.
Moreover, I was disappointed it simply must not be my time.
I sought the world again to see.
Maybe all I was missing was one special key.
I sought for rich’s in a host of awesome things.
Again disappointed I lost most everything.
I sought to the world because I did not find.
The thing to fill the hole I had in this heart of mine.
I knew it had to be out there for me.
The white picket fence with the goodies inside.
A tall handsome man who stood at my side.
That is all I need to fill this empty heart of mine.
When that fell through I did not see why.
I thought I understood God surely knew I truly did try.
I sought for a church to find my way in thee.
Things stayed the same I only longed to be free.
The guilt and remorse made me to cry.
I departed that church and sought to the world again
No need to go back I had the same hole within.
I had much fear and high anxiety.
No wonder people drink and use to try to get free.
Then one day while walking on down the street.
With my precious young daughter close by my feet.
Another failed marriage, I was at my wits end.
Frazzled; I was slipping into numb again.
Did God not see, I had no strength to find?
Why was it I was still lost inside?
Nothing I did measured out with me.
I only stumbled in my mess to try and get free.
Dear God I am on a wild train ride.
I beleive I will soon collide.
I see a sign posted on a small church side.
It said welcome sinners please do come inside.
Well, that was sure me I needed no contemplating.
I opened the door my tears were streaming.
No one was there but somehow I felt free.
I had a peace inside it near swept me off my feet.
Out came a dear woman who spoke quietly with me.
She said to please come this Sunday and bring all the family.
They shared a story on that wonderful April day.
I believe it was for me and I dared to say.
A story about Jesus and how he came for sinners.
He died on the Cross-so our sins would be forgiven.
He takes our life to start anew again.
We do not need to die in guilt and shame.
Believe sweet Jesus repent of sin.
believe in your heart and you will be born again.
Being utterly amazed.
The hole that needed fixing is now redeemed and not afraid.
He molds and transforms His children and enlightens thee.
He cut the chains that once bonded all of me.
His love fills the hole that once was inside.
He is the great love I longed to meet.
He was the sweet surrender I always sought to seek.
He keeps and protects his children when we do stumble.
He helps us rise to stand upon our feet.
We fit into His great and glorious plan.
He has a design for you and for me.
That is how special God created each one of us to be.
He is the best friend who filled this heart of mine.
Do not miss sweet Jesus your light within will truly shine.
If your life is all wonderful, peachy and keen.
But you do not know Jesus, maybe you should re-think it again.
Jesus is the only one who fills the hole inside.
Riches and fame, things and stuff only fade away like the tide.
Wicked and evil long to steal, destroy and kil.
And rob our life by going down hill.
Hallelujah Dear God, sweet Jesus came to rescue us and win.
He conquered the grave and the devil for all that believe in Him.
A child of the living God is who we are created to be.
Oh Sweet Jesus, Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God and Everlasting Father.
He only wants our love and a relationship with thee.
It does not get better; His precious gifts to his children are free.
All things come together we need only to ask and receive.
The empty fills in with the light of blessed eternity.
Our ears will hear and our eyes will now see.
The way, truth and life Jesus Christ gives for all that choose to believe.
Who do you follow in this life that we are given?
Is it the dark and wicked enemy?
Who comes only to devour and drag down all and any?
Or is it the great IAM, the Lord Jesus Christ?
Who gave His life for you and for me and desires we live now unto eternity
The angels rejoice and sing in love.
When one gives their life to the Saviour from above.
The mountain tops shout glory; the trees do dance and sway.
The living waters flow in His unending grace.
His mercy stands for those once lost now saved.
The King of Kings who lights our way.
Do not be too late call on sweet Jesus this blessed day.
He was the sweet surrender I longed to meet.
He rescued my life and set me on my feet.
If He knocks on your door do let Him in.
Your life will never be the same again.
My Love, Skye
