I used to feel the emptiness inside me
I was not supposed to feel that way
I had everything I needed
But nothing ever made me
What I longed to be
The wealth, the name
The lights, the fame
Were everything to me
And then one night
Out of the blue
I heard His name (Jesus)
And so I took that step of faith
And walked into His domain
I believe that's what He wants
Every heart to do
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you

Letting go to know the truth
Is not so hard to do
It's the heart that's got the will
To open up for Him to fill
And trusting and believing Him
Is all we've got to do
It's just the heart that's got to move
For Him to show His love that's been there
Even when we never cared
Take hold of His hand
Let go and you'll understand

Why be afraid
For God knows what you're feeling
But even He can't do a thing
If He sees the heart's not willing
And so we ask what's going on
We want what's right and still do wrong
When hard may seem the task
One step is all He asks of you

I guess by now you'd realize
You can't be on your own
And all your cares
And all your burdens
Should be cast upon His throne
Letting go, just let go, letting go
Let go and you'll understand
Just let go and you'll understand

    Leave everything to god because he is in control of everything... People used to hold back and others strive to fight for the trials but god teach us to trust in him... God is just waiting for you to surrender...

    How amazing it is at how your music are used by god to touch and change lives.

    Gary, you are god's voice in this turbulent and difficult time.

    The way i understand the song is emphasizing god is above everything, he is the one who can makes us happy.. Not the fame, money or any material things in this world. Only him..

    When you want something or long for someone, no matter how you try if it's not for you, let it go 'coz it's not for you. Give it up and probably someday somehow it will be yours.
