I Surrender All - text

I have wrestled in the darkness
of this lonely pilgrim land
Raising strong and mighty fortresses
that I alone command
But these castles
I've constructed by the
strength of my own hand
Are just temporary kingdoms
on foundations made of sand

In the middle of the battle
I believe I've finally found
I'll never know the thrill of victory
'til I'm willing to lay down
All my weapons of defense and
earthly strategies of war
So I'm laying down my arms and
running helplessly to Yours

I surrender all my silent hopes and dreams
Though the price to follow costs me everything
I surrender all my human soul desires
If sacrifice requires
That all my kingdoms fall
I surrender all

If the source of my ambition
is the treasure I obtain
If I measure my successes on
a scale of earthly gain
If the focus of my vision
is the status I attain
My accomplishments are
worthless and my efforts are in vain

So I lay aside these trophies
to pursue a higher crown
And should You choose somehow
to use the life I willingly lay down
I surrender all the triumph for
it's only by Your grace
I relinquish all the glory,
I surrender all the praise

Everything I am, all I've done,
and all I've known
Now belongs to You,
the life I live is not my own
Just as Abraham laid Isaac
on the sacraficial fire
If all I have is all that You desire
I surrender all
