The I Surrender lyrics teach me to surrender my heart to the fullness of Jesus’ grace.

I surrender lyrics

This song reminds me of a hymn, All to Jesus I Surrender. The lyrics go like this:

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus take me now

I surrender all, I surrender all
All to Thee my blessed Saviour
I surrender all

I used to sing this song, thinking I can give my all to Jesus. Then I realized that I can’t. I meant to but I can’t. Not on my own strength and will power.

I thought I could “ever love and trust Him“. But I couldn’t. I will forget frequently that I can trust Him. I rely on myself to fight for the things I want. Then I get all stressed up. The focus is on me. “I” was mentioned 8 times just in the short excerpt I used.

Unlike the hymn, this New Creation worship song taught me that I am surrendering to the greatness of His love. To the fullness of His grace. The focus is on His love and His grace. Not me.

Meditate on the lyrics and pray it to the Lord. Give thanks for His divine compassion.

I Surrender Lyrics

You love me as I am
Chose me even when You knew
I was tainted by sin
Compassion so divine
Flowed from deep within Your heart
Mercy opened my eyes

To a love so strong, so deep, so wide
It embraced my soul but demanded Your life
I surrender, surrender my heart
To the greatness of Your love

I surrender, surrender my heart
To the fullness of Your grace

Now holy hands I raise
My sins have been erased
I stand justified by Your grace
Accepted as Your own
An heir to heaven’s throne
In awe, I am yielded and still
For a love so strong, so deep so wide
Saw through my disgrace and has set me on high
