Sweet, Sweet Surrender (click to listen)
Words and music by John Denver
Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Travelled by many remembered by few
Lookin' for something that I can believe in
Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life
There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me
To somethin' that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more
Than enough to just be there today
And I don't know what the future is holdin' in store
I don't know where I'm goin', I'm not sure where I've been
There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin', I don't need to see the end
Sweet, sweet surrender
Live, live without care
Like a fish in the water
Like a bird in the air
Interpretation by Bekki
When I look around at my life I feel alone.
It seems I am on a road heading no-where and there is not another soul to be seen.
Many people have gone down this same road, yet most do not remember it
As I travel I search desperately for something I can believe in
What the heck am I supposed to do with my life?
yesterday holds no power over me,
Tomorrow is wide open and the truth is
that nothing is more real than where I am right now.
I can only live for today.
I have no idea what the future holds in store for me
I have no idea where life will take me, heck, I am not even sure of where I have been before now...
I hold fast to the Lord who guides me by His spirit and light
I open my heart and my life...
Even though I have no idea where I will end up,
My life is worth living.
If God truly is leading me, I do not need to see the end...
So I pray I will surrender with confidence
and that the surrender will be sweet
I pray I will Live, live without care of where God leads me, trusting He will be with me always
I will go where I am lead...
