Desperate. Grasping with a clenched fist.
I try to hold my own life in my own hand
Frustration sets in, thought I had this
Failure is the one thing that I can't stand

Oh, You remind me that taking care of me
Was never in my job description.
Oh, now I'm finding You want
To fix it all
You're just waiting for permission

I'm giving up, I'm letting go
Of everything that I've held onto
I'm giving up, I'm letting go
Of everything that I've let hold me
Far too long (for so long) Lord I know
I need to give You full control
Help me give up and let go

I want to trust You with my whole heart
Not lean on what I think I understand
And even when I can't see
Jesus, help me still to believe
You're unveiling an unfailing plan

Oh, but sometimes the old me creeps back in
Oh, and the only thing I know to do is give it all to You again

Help me give up, help me let go
Help me give up, help me let go
Help me give it all to You
