It will get rough to follow You

but I won’t give in

no matter what the cost may be

I will live for You

Though it might get hard, You are all I need

Life lived is one completely surrendered to You

so what else can I strive for

Nothing worth having comes without struggles

So I will press on with joy

knowing that what i strive for is the greatest thing to do

…that is to die to myself and find life in you

It will get rough to follow you

but I won’t give in

No matter what the cost may be

I will live for you

Things of this world are lost, broken or stolen

here one day, gone the next

So why should I spend my life working for such things

when I can strive for something that is eternal

a life surrender to Christ is a life truly lived

Through Your example, I’ve decided to live life Your way

Though you were the King of kings, with all life under your control

You lived Your life for me…

How does that work?…I do not understand…

But what I can do is commit my life to You in return

So I will live for You

This is true fulfillment, and a joy comes from it that lasts

through and through.
