WHEN A HEART HASN’T FULLY SURRENDERED (Song Lyrics)

easter heart welcome

There are parts of my heart struggling to be free
Forgive me Father, I’ve been too blind to see
That Your salvation included all, all, all
All I’d ever need when I answered Your call

Oh! Why is it hard, so hard to surrender
I’m going to spend life with You forever
Surrender all of my heart to You, my Lord
Please release me from every worldly cord

Chorus
This heart
A heart
Not fully surrendered
This heart
A heart
Still longing
Still empty
Crying within
Wanting only to surrender

Something’s amiss, because You’ve given it all
There’s something I missed, because You’ve done it all
Jesus, You’re seated on the right hand of Love
‘Tis compassion’s heart interceding above

Oh! Eyes, turn to the Lord, stop looking at self
You’re not some random bear alone on a shelf
Know with understanding, and keep your mind fresh
Remembering the battle’s spirit not flesh

Chorus
This heart
A heart
Not fully surrendered
This heart
A heart
Still longing
Still empty
Crying within
Wanting only to surrender

Then I see scenes of old, hard yes; but simple
No distractions, no screens making life brittle
New lives birthing forth into glorious day
On home ground once lived upon, decades away

I’m told not to look back, keep hands on the plough
I’ve healed you He said, live with Me in the now
The memories are yours, beauty and sorrow
But My beauty will always fill tomorrow

Chorus
This heart
A heart
Not fully surrendered
This heart
A heart
Still longing
Still empty
Crying within
Wanting only to surrender

This heart
A heart
Surrendering
This heart
A heart
Receiving
Filling
Tears captured
Only a matter of time

Because I am loved
I am loved
I am loved
