Even now your eyes are courting sleep
I'll stay by your side as I have always been
Sleep tonight, may your dreams reveal my love for you
Beyond what I must do, do you know my plans for you

To separate myself from where my treasure lies
Then naked in this cold and lonely unforgiving life
Be stripped away of all delusions of the man I'd like to be at the moment
I am broken parts sure of only weaknesses with nothing left to show
No illusions left to hide behind
Burning clean has been both agony and absolute release
Can I hope to pass this test, is my destiny the wilderness

The hardest part of letting go
Is trusting you with everything
In laying bare my soul is truly seeing who I really am
Father what is man that You are mindful of him

Can I pass this test, is my destiny this wilderness

To stand alone against a life of wretchedness
Impossible to hope and so I plead
Your graciousness show me your glory
May my life reflect your presence
And never again find myself in anything less

The hardest part of letting go
Is trusting you with everything
In laying bare my soul is truly seeing who I really am

Father what is man that You are mindful of him
