My heart longs for absolute surrender

1
My heart longs for absolute surrender
That I’d wholly consecrated be,
Not in word alone but all my being
Would be fully given unto Thee.
2
There is little willingness within me
To place all I am before Thy feet,
So I lay my hands on Thy dear head, Lord
As the burnt off’ring, perfect, complete.
3
Lord, You are the only One who offered
Yourself without reluctance unto God;
Full obedience to the Father given,
Absolute, You sacrificed Your all.
4
As this One, You’re dwelling in my spirit;
Moving, spreading outward day by day.
There’s a whisper of Amen within me
In response to all that You would say.
5
I say Yes and give You full permission
To touch every corner of my heart;
Break through all the barriers in my being;
Do not let me withhold any part.
6
’Tis my joy to give You all the ground, Lord;
Make my heart a dwelling place for You;
I want You to be at home within me;
Come and settle down in every room.
7
Lord, do cleanse my heart from all self-seeking
That I’d truly want nothing but Thee;
Let my soul be occupied, possessed, Lord,
That You would be magnified in me.

Lord we agree with every word of this song. We'd like to be wholly consecrated to you but are not willing to lay all on the altar. But Lord we have You as the absolute One in our being who can break through all the barriers until every corner of our heart is fully Your home. Lord Jesus do it for Your satisfaction and rest. AMEN.

Lord cleanse my heart from all self-seeking! Occupy, possess every corner of my heart! I lay my hands on You, The One Who is Absolute for God, My Burnt offering! I love You!

This song helps me to express my desire and prayer for 2012. Even though there may be little willingness within me, I say yes and give You full permission, Lord. Touch every corner of my heart. Don't let me withhold any part, break every barrier or resistance to Your will in my life. Don't let me be self-seeking, Lord; but do all things for Your glory and honour. I want to be wholly consecrated to Thee, not in word alone but that all my being would be fully given to Thee, in Jesus name. Amen.

May God bless the writer of this song.

Such a song can strengthen a fainting one...

Lord, do cleanse my heart from all self-seeking that I'd truly want nothing but Thee; let my soul be occupied, possessed, Lord, that You would be magnified in me.

Amen!! Lord cause us to absolutely surrender ourselves to You not in words alone but in all our being. Indeed, Lord, You are the only One who offered Yourself without reluctance unto God.

Lord, You're dwelling in our spirit; moving, spreading outward day by day.

There's a whisper of Amen within us in response to all that You would say.

Lord we give You the ground to work in us, to touch every corner of our hearts, to break through us until we are completely dependent and absolute to You. Until You make Your home in our hearts.

Lord, we love You. Thank You!!
