All Sons & Daughters – I Surrender

The music video above by All Sons and Daughters’ – “I surrender” above captures some wonderful sights of Assisi and is inspired by Francis giving himself to God.  

The video below is about the making of the above music track “I surrender”. “Francis had everything he could possibly desire, but God radically changed his mind from the desires of the world to the desires of the Kingdom.  We’ve been so challenged by the way he loved people, and the way he served people.  He began to simply show love the way that no one ever has …  Looking at our lives and asking what are the things that I hold on to?  What are the things on a daily basis that I need to give up so that I can say to God ‘What is it that you have for me?'”

 

 

All Sons and Daughters – I Surrender –  Lyrics:

The riches of this world will fade
The treasures of our God remain
Here I empty myself to owe this world
Nothing and find everything in You

I surrender, I surrender
I surrender all to You

Take my life, a sacrifice
In You alone I’m satisfied
Here I empty myself to owe this world
Nothing and find everything in You
Everything in You

I surrender, I surrender
I surrender all to You

I surrender, I surrender
I surrender all to You

Not my will, but Yours be done
Not my strength, but Yours alone
Nothing else, but You oh Lord
I find everything in You

I surrender, I surrender
I surrender all to You

I surrender, I surrender
I surrender all to You
