IT'S GONNA TAKE SURRENDER

 Chris Key and Michael Peters

Here you are again in this familiar place,
Wrestling the same struggles you've already faced.
The darkness all around you just keeps closing in,
Living your own way has let you down again.
There's nothing left to say or left to do;
You wonder what it's gonna take to pull you through.

It's gonna take surrender;
It's gonna take letting go.
It's gonna take throwing up your hands,
And letting God have control.
It's gonna take His mercy;
It's gonna take your faith.
It's gonna take falling on your knees
And God's amazing grace.
If we're ever gonna reach that home of splendor,
It's gonna take surrender.

Life has become so fast-paced these days,
Pursuing wealth and earthly gain keeps us in a race.
Broken hearts and homes are nothing rare it seems,
And living for the moment is now the common theme.
Today is the day to seek the truth.
This is what it's gonna take for me and you.

It's gonna take surrender;
It's gonna take letting go.
It's gonna take throwing up your hands,
And letting God have control.
It's gonna take His mercy;
It's gonna take your faith.
It's gonna take falling on your knees
And God's amazing grace.
If we're ever gonna reach that home of splendor,
It's gonna take surrender.
