I’ve come to a point in life where I want to draw near You
Because I’m told it’s worth it, and that I’ll like the view.
But as I draw closer it becomes clear to see
That following Christ Jesus will cost me everything.
The more I read Your Word, the clearer is Your voice;
From the depths inside of me You beckon, “Make a choice.
Make a choice, beloved. Come to Me and see
That though you lose the things of earth, You gain all of Me.
I’ll be your strength when you are weak; Your hope when you are lost.
When you think eternally You’ll see it’s worth the cost.
I am the Giver of true life, the Godhead Trinity.
I am the Potter of the clay from which you came to be.
I am the Voice from heaven, I am the Servant’s Heart.
You cannot stray too far from Me; My love will never part.
Dear child of Mine, can’t you see? My love for you abounds.
And though there are trials on this earth You’ll one day wear a crown.
So let Me come and interfere, let your trust rest in Me.
I know it won’t be comfortable but it will set you free.
I want to work My love through you, to use your hands and feet.
I want truth and grace to echo through to everyone you meet.
But your heart is tightly gripped around what you still hope will be.
I know they may be good things, but child, give them to Me.
Give them to Me and I will do more than you ever could,
For I am just and I love you and all My ways are good.”
And as I grow on my way of intentional pursuit of Christ
I find what I surrender to Him is surely worth the price.
And though I stumble and I fall, His grace flows from above.
Only because of who He is can I be so dearly loved.
