Surrender

Surrender was written while thinking up ways to jam on Am while on an acoustic. What started out as a simple exploration of Am, Em and Dm, ended up the beginning of a little reggae/pop song. Though the chorus is more intuitive and easier to sing, the song wasn't really intended to be a "congregational" worship song.

One could certainly try it in a worship setting (perhaps as a special or something) but don't expect people to sing the verses with any "corporate" gusto - at least not at first...

But use it however you'd like!

Lyrics

Now's the time Salvation has come, and you and I must Taste and see, that free we will be

Why resist the flow? Just surrender and you will know There's nothing sweeter than when you let your worries go

Just raise a voice and sing out…

Here's my life Here's my all I surrender

Have my heart Have my soul I surrender

You can cast all cares They're too heavy anyway There's nothing worse than being a slave to the burden every day

Just cry out He's not far…

Here's my life Here's my all I surrender

Have my heart Have my soul I surrender

Freedom comes When I lay it down I surrender

Here's everything Have my crown I surrender

Here at the cross, I trust in you Seeing your love, I trust in you You laid down your life, in my place Now I will surrender all to your grace
