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
