I Give Up

vacation-90

Based on Luke 14:33:

Lord, I give up all my pride,

All the lusts that keep me tied.

I will choose to push aside

All except the One Who died.


Lord, I give up all my friends,

All the times I’ve sought my ends.

I will let You from me rend

All except the things You send.


Lord, I give up all my things,

All the joy that riches bring.

I will not to riches cling,

All except what serves my King.


Lord, I give up all my heart.

All my life—take every part

From this day I’ll let You chart

My life’s path—and here I’ll start.
