To Be!

As Holy Week begins and we celebrate Our’s Lord’s surrender to the will of His Father, let us ponder the depth of our own surrender to His will by reflecting on the message contained in this beautiful poem.

To be with Thee
Oh let it be!
Not wandering aimlessly to and fro.
To know what to do and where to go.
To be directed by Thy Almighty hand
To follow always Your Heavenly plan
To be attuned to Your presence every step of the way,
To live a guided-by-God day.
To surrender my will, my time, my desires too
Oh to surrender all, just to be with You.
To be filled with your Holy Spirit and love you
Oh that is what I want to do!

To be one who knows the Savior’s voice
Guided by Your grace to make the right choice.
To be still and know You as I pause in prayer.
To be assured that you always are there.
To follow in Your way and never be the same
Jesus that is the reason you came.
To walk as a disciple like Peter, John and Paul,
To cling to the mystery of the cross when I fall.
To be a soldier in God’s army; standing strong.
Leaving behind the ways of the world; not just going along.
To be a witness guiding others to You
Oh that is what I want to do!

To take His hand as He leads me before His Father’s throne
To be lost in His Heavenly presence; knowing I’m never alone.
To put my trust in Him; I surrender all
Thankful to have answered His call.
Oh that is what I want to do!

So I invite you this day
Take time to pause and pray,
Pour out your heart to Him each day.
Because Jesus is the truth, life and the only way.
He will lead you to the Father’s throne.
You too will know that you are never alone.
Your Abba Daddy is faithful and true.
He waits patiently for you.
Oh that is what I want to do! 

To look forward to being with Him for all eternity.
Praising Him with saints and angels will be quite a symphony
To be fully alive; lost in His presence of love.
To be filled with His Holy Spirit of love.
To walk in His ways
To sing His praise
To know His voice,
To make the right choice
To be still and know
He is there where ever you go
To answer his call
To tell one and all
To never be alone
To know you have a Heavenly home
Oh that just is what I want to do!

To be walking in His amazing grace
To one day behold His holy face.
To be with Thee, my Father, my God
Just to be with You,
Oh that is just what I want to do!
To be with Thee
My Lord, my God, oh let it be.
