Take it all I’m letting go

Forgive me, Lord, for the things in this world

I’ve put security in

Forgive me, Lord for the things I’ve held on to

Unwilling to let go

Forgive me, Lord, for the things in my heart

I’ve been so blind to

Forgive me, Lord, for the things in my life

I’ve taken control of

 

Lord I’m on my knees, I can’t do it anymore

These reins are too much for me to bear

I mess it up when I’ve got control

Lord I’m on my knees, broken and ashamed

Here once more, messed up again

Distressed and weeping at your throne

 

Take it all, I’m letting go

I don’t want it anymore

I’ve held on far too long

I’m letting go of everything

‘Cuz without you everything is nothing

But with you nothing is everything

And I’d take nothing any day

As long as I have you

 

Though ashamed my head bows at your feet

You calmly lift my eyes to your own

Your love it breaks me, so redeeming, so deep

Though unworthy I feel to stand before you

You unhesitantly draw me into your arms

Your grace it amazes me, so saving, so vast

 

How could I live for anything but this?

There’s pain in this laying down of self

It makes me see how wrong I’ve been

But there’s more beauty than pain in the offering

For your blood covers me

And your joy strengthens me

 

When I lift my eyes up to your throne

Nothing else can I see, your glory’s too great

To take up your cross I have to lay it all down

I can’t carry both at the same time

But I’ve seen how empty all the other stuff is

Not carrying your cross leaves no reason to live

But with death to self greater life is found

I want to take up your cross and never put it down,

 

So

Take it all, I’m letting go

I don’t want it anymore

I’ve held on far too long

I’m letting go of everything

‘Cuz without you everything is nothing

But with you nothing is everything

And I’d take nothing any day

As long as I have you
