Lord I'll Be what You Want Me to Be

Hey everyone!

Here's a song that I've written a while ago, but it means a lot to me still. It's one of my favorites that I've written. Some of you that know me might have heard me mention it before -- I am currently working on an arrangement of it with piano, cello, and violin.

Let me know what you think! 

Lord, I'll be what You Want Me to be

Chorus:

Lord I'll be what you want me to be tho' the way seems foggy and unclear

Lord I'll do what you want me to do I will cling to You and never fear

For you're holding my hand

Lord I'll be what you want me to be

 

Verse 1:

I'm tired of fearing, and not believing in Your Sovereignty and grace

I'm growing weary of not trusting You to carry me through everything I face

I'll not be standing idle longer while I hear you calling after me

I'll follow You,

Lord I'll be what You want me to be

 

 

Verse 2:

I'll take a breath, and hold Your hand while You lead me down this path I do not know

I will follow Your direction even when Your plan to me you do not show

I am trusting in your promise that You'll always do what You know's best for me

I'll cling to You,

Lord I'll be what You want me to be.

 

To be honest, I made that second verse just now... I started putting it up here and I thought, "This needs a second verse!" And that was easy for me to do because I've been learning to release my desires to God and be what He wants me to be. 

But that's a story for some other time. ;)

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the song? Do you have any ideas of how I can significantly shorten the title??? That's one thing I have trouble with... Titling songs. My titles are always WAY too long. Y'all have probably noticed that though.

This is wonderful, Grace!!  Please please please share a video of your arrangement when you are done... I'd love to hear it! <3
Hmm, well, the only shortened title I can think of if you want to shorten it is "What You Want Me to Be."  Or I guess "Lord, I'll Be" could work too, but since you always follow that up with "...what you want me to be," I'm not sure if that sounds the best.   I honestly never made a mental note about your song titles being too long!
Have a wonderful Lord's day!

I will try to make a video of it sometime! I'll have to get someone to help play the instruments though... ;)
Hmm, I'll have to think on those. XD Glad you don't think my song titles are to long and clunky. Laughing
You have a wonderful Lord's day too! We went and saw the Bontragers this morning in concert, which was super fun. ;)

Ahhhh you saw the Bontragers?!! How was that?  Did you get to talk to Allison or any of them afterward??  Where was the concert? Fiiillll mmeee iinnnn!!  One thing I regret most about when I saw the Bontragers in concert was that I didn't get to Allison much, and I didn't even get to meet any of the other :'(

Yes, I did mention it, so I thought you'd probably recognize the title. ;) I'm glad you enjoyed it!
