It's not a mysterious wind,
And it's not the thunder rollin' in;
It's a spirit that I feel within that's callin'.
I understand but I can't explain.
Now I see love in a different way.
And with a single leap of faith, I'm fallin'
Into your loving arms.
Showing no resistance,
There's a peace that flows over me.

Sweet surrender, love me tender.
You have captured my desiring heart completely.
Sweet surrender, yours forever.
I will gladly give my all to you.
Receive me. oh lord, I am ever yours.

Your love offers no escape,
But I don't feel the need to run away.
My heart has found a place to stay here with you.
Nothing else could satisfy
The deep void that I had inside.
From all the worldly battles I had lived through,
Now here in your loving arms,
I have gone the distance.
I will rest my soul in your embrace.

Sweet surrender, (surrender) love me tender. (tender)
You have captured my desiring heart completely.
Sweet surrender, (surrender) yours forever. (forever)
I will gladly give my all to you.
Receive me. oh

Yes, I have gone the distance.
I will rest my soul in your embrace.

Oh, oh, sweet surrender, (surrender) love me tender. (tender)
You have captured my desiring heart completely.
Oh lord, I am ever yours.
Oh lord, I am ever yours.
