Matt Redman – Befriended lyrics

Befriended, befriended by the King above all Kings
Surrendered, surrendered to a friend above all friends
Invited, invited deep into this mystery
Delighted, delighted by the wonders I have seen
This will be my story
This will be my song
You'll always be my savior.
Jesus You will always have my heart
Astounded, astounded that Your gospel beckoned me
Surrounded, surrounded but I've never been so free,
Determined, determined now to live this life for You
You're so worthy my greatest gift would be the least You're due
This will be my story
This will be my song
You'll always be my Savior.
Jesus You will always have my heart

    My analysis in on A pleasant tune and, except for stanza 2, good rhyme. It has some good things to think about, especially the dose of realism that the high king is worthy of greater gifts than we can bring. The downsides include misunderstanding prayer, boasting, buddy theology, and a false rationale against suicide. Changing it to a song to Jesus (theodirectional 2), with further tweaks, would much improve as a devotional song, amazement at what God has done for his rebellious creatures, allowing us into eternal relationship.
