surrender

Verse 1:

the world keeps spinning, but it left me behind
to gather the broken pieces of my heart inside.
can't stand on my two feet, can't find the music, hear the beat
it's like the earth was pulled out from under me.



 

Pre-Chorus 1:
and i can't see
but i'm dying to believe
that Your will will be done
and there's nothing, and no one
that could stand in the way
of Your great plans for me.

Chorus:
so i surrender my heart to You.
because Your love, it will carry me through.
through joy and pain
You remain
the only hiding place i could ever run to
so i surrender my heart to You.


 

Verse 2:
so i let myself go under these waves, i give in to the flow
in the ocean of Your mercy and a faithfulness that never ever goes.
and as You parted the waters, i know You'll lead me to dry land.
You say peace be still my soul, and i can't even comprehend...



Pre-Chorus 2:
what You've done for me.
and maybe i finally see
that Your will will be done
and there's nothing, and no one
that could stand in the way
of Your great plans for me.

[Chorus]

Bridge:
...and the truth,
that You cause all things to work together for good.
to Your majesty, what You're doing in me.
i walk by faith, not by what i see...

[Chorus]
