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


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!
