Each day I surrender anew
Much more I cannot do
Oh the joy that fills my soul.
For then I feel brand new
And then their comes the deepest peace
The worries go in sweet relief
I wonder then how can this be?
That you hold me close to Thee.
I cry out for the lost ones I know
And for those who do not grow
To be more like you every day
Those who have idols in their way.
Though mostly I cry for my heart
That my weaknesses depart
That to you my life I’d give
So that others to may live.
I ask Him that his will I’d see
And what he would have me be
And give me strength to obey
The silent voice that speaks each day.
It’s not just mornings that are sweet
In Which I sing and also weep
I and God walk side by side
And in his love I do abide.
